I so wish I could remember where I saw this original idea so I could give due credit because I kid you not, I get compliments every single time I wear this combination of eye shadow. The pictures really don’t do it justice, you have to see the subtle yet noticeable fine pink sparkle that the sunlight will bring out, even indoors, especially that nice overhead lighting they have in department stores, strangers have literally stopped to ask me, “Excuse me, what eyeshadow do you have on?” Which is always nice, gotta take those little ego boosts when you can get ’em.
It’s actually not one shadow, it’s a combo of a creme gold base with a soft slightly glimmery pink powder on top. Instead of an eyeshadow primer I use my BB Cream over my entire face (if you missed it, one day for whatever the heck reason I decided to do a youtube video with my entire makeup ritual, in case your curious) & then I apply a light coat of Bobbi Brown’s long wear cream shadow in ‘Goldstone’. I tend to put a little more towards the inner corner of my eye & blend towards the outside verses covering the entire lid. After that I apply a light coat of Laura Mercier’s shadow in Petal Pink. A little brown liner, a coat of mascara & that’s it, your new favorite summer eye look!
**UPDATE: I found it! This is the original tutorial & she actually uses Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in Gold Rush, which I cant personally vouch for but it’s certainly cheaper than the Bobbi one so if you get it please let me know! Her pictures are really fantastic too so take a peak, it kind of puts mine to shame but I’m ok with that. (;
