You should use a sponge brush with a base color and then apply it from the eyelid into the crease of the eye. Now next is if you want a particularly dramatic look then you can try to make a triangle shape with the use of  a dark color to the outer corner of your eye. You should use these colors in such a way that it is blended upward and outward with just small strokes.
