Before you start with this look, you have to take note that the raccoon eye make-up trend is not meant to be used as an every day look. It may be appropriate for evening events or a night out with the girls. You also have to take note that pairing this intense look with a dark colored lipstick or too much blush is a big NO. The idea is “glamorous” not “horrendous” We want people focus on the eyes and so, we need to matte down or neutralize everything else.
Prepare your face. Do the usual: Cleanse, tone, and moisturize. For oily skin you can use a primer. I used 4U2 Spotlight Make-up Base. You can purchase it at SM department store. After priming, you will apply foundation that will give you full coverage or you can conceal, conceal, conceal! We are aiming for a flawless face; if you already have a naturally unblemished face, then good for you!
Before you begin applying the eyeshadows, apply loose powder under the eyes so it will catch the fall outs. since you will be packing a lot of eyeshadows on your lids it might get a bit messy. You can then wipe it off with tissue afterwards.

- Fill in the gaps with pencil liner.
- Get rid of the harsh lines by applying black eyeshadow on top of the liquid liner.
- Blend blend blend!
