    Glamorous Gold

    You’ll catch all eyes with a golden glow, girl.


    1. Press the cream gold eye shadow all over the lid with your ring finger.

    2. Use bronzer in two ways: in the crease of your eyes above the lid and to warm up your cheeks.

    3. Nude pink lip gloss looks great with gold.

    4. Line your top lash line with liquid eyeliner.

    5. For a glamorous touch, try winging out your eyeliner on the ends.

    Glowing Nude

    Shimmery nude is natural yet sweetly smoky with a slightly smudged eye.


    1. Use an eye shadow brush to apply a sparkling powder eye shadow all over the lid.

    2. Apply dark brown eyeliner along the top eyelashes, then smudge this in with an eyeliner or eye shadow smudging brush.

    3. Finish with foundation and a bright pink blush for a flawless glowing look.

    A cream shadow helps glitter stay put all night. Rad!


    1. Use a creamy eye shadow base all over the eyelid to make glitter stick to the lid.

    2. Use your finger to press the glitter shadow onto the tacky base.

    3. Use lots of mascara on the top lashes and apply some blush for color on the cheeks.
