Subtle meets sexy in this silver and light pink look

When the occasion calls for a little sparkle as well as understated drama, it can be difficult to pick the right color combination for your makeup. Pink is always a good choice when you’re looking for something soft and subtle, but traditional black eyeliner can be too stark.
To create a romantic look that still turns heads, swap out your usual liner in favor of deep brown. If you already use brow pomade, apply it to create a soft wing with an angled brush. Pale pink, metallic rose and silver glitter eye shadow perfectly complement each other, and false lashes give your eyes some added brightness for a classic evening look.

Instructions
1. Apply makeup primer to your face with your fingertips.
2. Apply liquid foundation to your skin, then use a foundation brush to gently press the product into place.
3. Restore brightness to your face by applying light-colored concealer with the applicator wand. Apply the product below your eyes and on the inner corner of your eyelids as well as the center of your forehead, bridge of your nose, above your Cupid’s bow and on the center of your chin. Press the product into your skin with the makeup sponge.
4. Use dark-colored concealer to contour your cheeks, upper forehead and nose as well as your jawline and the area immediately below and above your lips. Stipple the product into your skin with the foundation brush.
5. Set the under-eye area as well as the forehead and area below your cheek contour by applying loose powder with the makeup sponge. Dust off the excess powder with a fluffy cheek brush.
6. Swirl bronzer along your cheekbones, temples and eyelids with the cheek brush.
7. Restore color to your cheeks by patting dusty pink blush onto them with the angled cheek brush. Apply the product from the center of your cheek outward toward the hairline in a diagonal direction toward the top of your ear.
8. Highlight your cheekbones, nose, Cupid’s bow, chin and the area just above your brows by applying pearly quartz highlighter with a tapered brush.
9. Outline your brows, and fill in missing hairs with brow cream. Use an angled brow brush for precision.
10. Sweep pale pink eye shadow along the crease of your eye with the blending brush.
11. Layer metallic rose eye shadow over the pink to give your crease more warmth and depth.
12. Pat silver glitter eye shadow on the inner two-thirds of your lid and near the tear duct with the flat shader brush.
13. Use the brow pomade and the angled brow brush to create your eyeliner wing. Press the brush into the skin next to the outer corner of your eye, angling the brush upward toward the tail of the brow. Create a second diagonal line above it to form a small triangle. Fill in the triangle, and line your entire upper lash line as well.
14. Sweep metallic rose gold eye shadow below your lower lashes with a pencil brush.
15. Fill in your lower waterline with ivory eyeliner pencil for a wide-awake look.
16. Apply black mascara to your upper and lower lashes.
17. Hold the false lashes with the tweezers, and apply a small amount of lash glue onto the lash band. Let the glue set for 10 seconds, then apply the lashes just above your upper lashes.
