Define the crease

With Goss Edit Brush 04 or another crease brush, define the crease of your eyelid with Shade 05, a warm brown. Start at the outer corner and work inwards, stopping about halfway along the socket. Blend away any harsh edges.

Add a pop of shimmer

Pat Shade 06, a sparkling champagne shade, onto the center of your eyelid with the pad of your finger. Continue to pat with your finger to blend if needed.


Line your eyes

To apply liner the easy way, dip a flat liner brush (like Smith Cosmetics 212 Tightliner Brush) into Shade 03, a rich black shade, and push the bristles into the root of your lashes. Continue along the length of your upper lashline. (For a more detailed tutorial, see Wayne Goss’s Push Liner Technique.)


Define lower lashes

Apply Shade 04 along your bottom lashes, starting at the outer corner of your eye and working your way in. Use a small crease brush, like Goss Edit Brush 07.

Wayne Goss The Waterproof Mascara

Apply mascara

Curl your lashes and apply a lengthening mascara, like Wayne Goss The Waterproof Mascara. For long-lasting curl, Wayne recommends curling your lashes, applying a thin layer of mascara, and then curling them again after the mascara dries completely.

Complete the Look

To pull everything together, lightly dust bronzer along the hollow of your cheeks and buff it out towards your temples. Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks, blending away any visible edges. Finish with a nude lipstick.
