I am so excited to be posting for Dimana today! My name is Etta and I am the master mind behind the blog Etta's Threads. You can and will find a little bit of everything on my blog. However, today, I am here to bring something special to Dimana and her blog.

I have a deep rooted passion for makeup because I view it as an art. I have been wearing makeup since high school, but c'mon, seriously I didn't know what I was doing. Now, I am learning all the amazing, fun things you can do with some eyeshadow and blush!

Today, I am presenting you with a look inspired by the song called "Till Dawn" by the Weeknd. I love all the Weeknd's songs but that is one that I constantly put on repeat. I wanted to create a look that represented dawn and the sun. I have created a quick pictorial that can help you achieve such a look.

**Before you apply eyeshadow to your eye, apply a base or primer! It will help your eyeshadow last all day.**
1) Apply the lilac color to the inner and outer corner of your lid.
2) Apply the golden color to the center of your lid.
