Get the look
Getting this enchanting look couldn't be easier - simply follow our easy tutorial below.
Every good beauty look starts with glowing skin. Even out your complexion with a BB cream, which has the added bonus of hydrating your skin at the same time.
Brighten up puffy eyes by applying concealer to the under-eye area as well as over your eyelids. This will not only reduce the appearance of tiredness but also serve as a base upon which to apply your shadow.
It's time to turn on the shine! Use an applicator to apply a wash of shimmery gold shadow to your eyelid, starting from the inner corner and working outwards.
Apply the shadow along your lower lashline, smudging with the brush for a more natural effect.
Finish the look with a light coat of mascara on your upper lashline. Leave the lower lashes bare for the ultimate understated finish.
Now all that's left to do is to shimmer your way through your day!
