hi! no, you are not helpless! You want to keep your shadow a little lighter and treat your “crease” as the line of skin that sits right on top of your lashes when your eyes are open. So, if I say to blend a color into the crease, you would want to apply the shadow so it is lightly visible above the skin that sits right against your lashes. This means that you are applying a lot less shadow than I would put on my own eye because the area between your lashline and your “crease” when your eyes are closed will be much smaller. The general principles of application will be the same, meaning you put the colors in roughly the same area, only those areas are much smaller. Don’t be afraid to bring color above the skin that rests on your lash line, just keep it light, well blended, and don’t get too close to the brow. I hope this helps!
