Resist the temptation to put the pink on the lid. Put it in the crease and add a shimmering black to the lid.

How cool is this color combination? The matching lipstick ties everything together.


3. Orange and Pink Eyeshadow

Don’t be afraid to go bold.


4. Multicolored Corners

Those inner corners. You don’t have to add all the embellishments, but the sparkles in the inner corners of the eyes are a must.


11. Shimmering Green Eyeshadow

Incorporate your lips into the look by matching them with your bright eyeshadow.


12. Bold Red Eyeshadow

Here’s proof that you can create a new look with only a couple of eyeshadow colors. Extend that shade beyond the lid. Way beyond it.


13. Yellow Eyeshadow and Light Blue Liner

That streak of blue along the waterline makes this.


14. Blue and Pink Eyeshadow

Don’t stop at one saturated color.
