What’s one way to make yourself feel like a million bucks? If there’s not enough money in the bank to be seriously bringing home the bling, outfit your eyes in some jewel-toned shadows.
Take it from the experts – “I love navy, deep green, and purple for jewel-tone smoky eyes,” celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow told ELLE.com. “If the thought of sparkling sapphire or emerald green intimidates you, try layering them on top of a gray or black shadow. The result won’t be too overpowering because the gray or black will dilute the intensity of the color.”
For one of the most luxurious gazes around, use Youngblood‘s Crushed Mineral Eyeshadow in Moonstone to evoke the classic brilliance of white diamonds. What’s more, the powdered mineral formula will look and feel just like fine diamond powder.
GloMinerals gloEye Shadow in Mermaid will bring all the best of aquamarine or green emerald hues to your lids.
For the purple mystique of an amethyst jewel, use BABOR Eyeshadow in Twilight.
