Paint Your Life In Amazing Colors

The Pink Smoky Eye: This look has evolved past black and midnight blue. But when you're working with surprising shades, you need a strategic plan. "Start by lining your top and bottom lashes with a lavender shadow," Restrepo says. "The hint of bluish coolness brings out the whites of your eyes instead of unwanted redness." Brush your rosy shadow (something with a hint of shimmer is best) everywhere—from the top lashline to just above the crease, and outward to the tail of your brow, fading the color as you go. Add definition with a generous coating of a volumizing black mascara.
