SHADOW STYLE

Calling all blue and green eyed gals!!!

I know colored eyeshadow was last seen in the garbage can of your bathroom circa '98, but I have a fresh spin on a color so bold yet neutral, that it will have you jumping out of bed in the morning to put your makeup on!

Pink eyeshadow is the new black jean. It sort of just goes with everything. Think of it as a neutral--notice this YSL palette that I'm currently crushing, how the pink colorway that I used in the bottom left corner is surrounded by its neutral partners.

It's particularly strong for blue and green eyes because it brightens and lightens the pigment in your eyes, turning your green or blue beauties into light crystal balls. It's pretty incredible to witness. 

For a day at the office, I slab on the pink shadow with some light mascara and call it a day. It makes my baby greens pop off my face and speaks to the whole "no makeup, makeup" look perfectly.

At night, I add a strong cat eye line like shown above to give my lids some extra drama. Another option for night is to line your crease with the deep purple in the center of the palette.

I love this YSL palette because the colors surrounding the pink on the bottom left are incredible choices for highlighting and shading for your evening look. 

Now go give your eyes a high drama update and try this eyeshadow trend today!
