On the Spring/Summer Ready To Wear 2009 runway, eyes sparkled in silver and gilded tones everywhere. The look brings a certain innocence and youthfulness to the face and is totally easy to do at home.
To recreate the look, just place a shimmery color on the inner corners of the eyes. You can do this with a dab of cream eyeshadow, an eye pencil or even powder eyeshadow. The key is to figure out what color to use and to do it in moderation.
Cool Vs Warm
Those who have cool undertones or paler skin will rock icy colors like silver or pearly white. A good product is Kevyn Aucoin Liquid Shimmer in White. I know it has been discontinued but if you can find it, definitely get yourself one. An alternative would be MAC Cream Color Base in Pearl.
Those who have warmer or darker skin will glow in shimmery beiges, pale golds and light coppers. Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Makeup Dazzling Liquid Shadow in Pillow Talk and MAC Glitter Eyeliner in Blitzed are both great for this.
