Hi, everyone. My name is Joi, and I'm a freelance makeup artist in New York, and I want to show you all today how to do eye makeup for single eyelids. So I've got my brushes, blending and application eye shadow brush, and then of course, my shadows. One thing that is a little bit different if you have a single eyelid is you actually have a bit more space to play with color. So, a couple of things, you want to make sure that when you are applying the eyeshadow that you bring it up far enough so that the eyeshadow doesn't get lost down by the lid. So you want to start at the lashes and make sure that you're blending up. And another thing that you can do, I'm going to show you in just a second here, is you actually can do sort of like a fade effect. So we can go from the outside in using multiple colors. So she's already got just a bit of gold on and so what I'm going to do is I'm just going to add sort of a, sort of like a bronzey burgundy color. And I'm making sure to get down by the lash line and taking it up just a bit higher here and blending out as usual. OK. So we've got two colors so far here. And I'm going to let the gold be the middle color. And then I'm also going to add just a dab of a highlight color in the corner, the inner corner of her eye. OK. Something that's kind of close to white but maybe with just a little bit of shimmer. So we're going to tap that in and as always we want to make sure that we're blending and getting rid of those harsh edges. OK. So I'm going to take my blending brush, starting from the lighter color so that then we don't mix the darker in with the light. And just making everything smooth, smoothing along the edges here. OK. And creating a nice shape at the edge of the eye. And then blending those two in. OK. So there you go. We have a nice multicolored look for a single eyelid and as you can see when she opens you can still see the shadow colors that are at the top. So I hope this is helpful to you all, and my name is Joi once again, and thank you for watching.
