All that glitters isn’t gold. This shimmery pink eye shadow look proves it

If you want an evening-out look that will have all eyes on you, try this shimmery pink eye shadow style. Metallic shadows on the inside of your lids are guaranteed to catch the light and get plenty of attention. Pink shadow increases the head-turning factor with an unmistakable pop of color. The final effect is a look that’s both alluring and electrifying.
The key to pulling off this bold style is to be careful with proportions. Shimmery shadow all over your eyes can feel a little dated, but this look accents the metallics with matte pink shadows on the outside of your lids. Nude lipgloss also helps balance out the look and keeps it from seeming overdone. Thorough contouring, false eyelashes and a dash of highlighter give the makeup a sophisticated amount of drama.

Instructions
1. Rub and pat facial cream into your face to hydrate your skin. With your fingertips, blend a small amount of redness-reducing primer into the highlight areas of your face.
2. Put two lines of foundation directly onto each cheek and your forehead. Blend it with a foundation brush and a stippling motion. For fuller coverage, avoid making circular or sweeping motions with the brush.
3. Apply highlighting concealer under your eye in the shape of an upside triangle. Apply a few lines of concealer on your chin, above your Cupid’s bow, down your nose and in the center of your forehead. Blend in the concealer with the tapered end of a damp blending sponge. Use a stippling motion.
4. Apply a line of contour concealer under your cheekbones, around your hairline and along your jaw. Blend it in using the side of the sponge and a stippling motion.
5. Use a sponge to dab setting powder onto your cheeks, forehead and chin. Don’t blend the powder in yet. Load more powder onto the side of the sponge, then pull the sponge across the side of your face under your cheekbone. This will accentuate your cheekbones. Blend in all of the powder with a highlighter brush and quick, sweeping motions.
6. Use a bronzer brush and quick, sweeping motions to apply “Warmth” or the bronzer of your choice under your cheekbones and around your hairline.
7. Use a blush brush and quick, circular motions to apply blush on the tops of your cheekbones.
8. Fill in your brows. You can do this by first shaping your brows with a spoolie. Line your brows with brow liner, then fill them in with a matching brow powder.
9. Apply eye shadow primer to your eyelids. Blend it in with your fingertips.
10. With a fluffy eye shadow brush, apply “Nesting” or a matte peach shadow to the crease and outside of your eyelid.
11. With the same brush, apply “Boo Bird” or a matte pink shadow just inside and underneath the shadow you applied in the previous step.
12. Layer on “Heron Chic” or a matte, raspberry pink shadow. Dab the shadow on above your upper lash line and above your crease.
13. With a flat eye shadow brush, apply “Never More” or a shimmery pink shadow to the inside of your lid.
14. Load “Emuse Me” or a shimmery gold-pink shadow onto a flat brush. Generously dab the shadow onto the inside and middle of your eyelid.
15. Apply false eyelashes, and allow the glue to set.
16. Line your lips with “018 Addiction” or a nude lip liner. Fill in your lips with “Totally” or a nude lipgloss.
17. Generously spray your face with a setting spray. This will help your makeup stay in place.
18. Dab highlighter onto the tops of your cheekbones, around the corners of your eyes, on your forehead and down your nose.
