Use a number 0 brush to paint the lines on the cheekbones, around eyes, brows, under jaw and paint lashes at the corner of each eye.

Use the graffiti eye stencil with a sponge to paint the dots of shading.

Finish by mixing Mehron gold powder with the liquid and paint over the wording on the choker with a number 5 brush. This a much more realistic gold and shimmers in pictures better.
