Create a flirty-eyed look with pink pearl shadow and individual false lashes

Pink is a love it or leave it color. Some people embrace it, while others steer clear for fear of looking sickly. If you've never worn pink or rose gold, then this tutorial might be the one that changes your mind about these rosy-hued looks.
This isn't your average pink and brown combo. A warm beige-gold base preps the lid for pink pearl shadow. Soft brown defines the crease, and the eyes are lined with black pencil. What makes the look infinitely more universal is a touch of copper shimmer. The copper warms up the pink shadow, so the red isn't so prominent. Finally, because no flirty look would be complete without false lashes, a few individual lashes boost volume in the center and on the outer corner.

Instructions
1. To create a hydrated base for makeup, apply moisturizer to your face with a fluffy foundation brush.
2. Pat eye cream below the eyes using your ring finger. Tip: The skin under the eyes is fragile, so use gentle pressure when touching this area.
3. Pat and press beige-gold cream eye shadow onto the lid using your ring finger.
4. Apply pink pearl eye shadow onto the lid using the flat eye shadow brush. Be careful to avoid the inner corner.
5. Sweep brown matte eye shadow onto the crease and outer corner of the eye with a fluffy blending brush.
6. Softly line your upper and lower lash lines with black eyeliner pencil, then use the smudging attachment to soften the line.
7. Curl your lashes with the eyelash curler, then apply two coats of black mascara. Tip: Wiggling the mascara wand at the base of the lashes will help you coat each individual lash.
8. Groom your brows with the spoolie, then apply eyebrow gel with an angled eyebrow brush. Fill in any sparse areas, then groom the brows once more with the spoolie.
9. To keep your brow hair in place all day, apply a coat of clear brow gel.
10. Fill in your lips with raspberry liquid lipstick. Tip: When applying an intense color, fill in the lower lip first, then press your lips together to transfer some of the pigment to the upper lip. Add more color as needed.
11. Give your lashes a little extra volume by adding individual false lashes at the outer corner and center of the upper lash line. Place a small drop of lash glue on the back of your hand. Pick up the false lashes with the tweezers, then dip the lash band into the glue. Let the glue set for 10 seconds, then apply the lashes.
12. Apply copper shimmer eye shadow on the lid with the flat eye shadow brush to complete the look.
