It was this picture of Penelope Cruz that inspired to do this look. Though, I did not recreate her look, I think I managed to keep it simple yet attractive. I've heard that it is always best to keep the color that suits you most right next to your eyes. For me, pink is definitely one of those colors that brightens my face and brings the focus to my eyes. Pink paired with a simple black and some eyeliner, makes this a great look for work/ school/ just about anywhere.

Products Used and Description:

1. Apply concealer all over lids and under eyes.
2. Apply a light pink shade all over your lid, till the crease.
3. Using a small crease brush apply black / dark brown shadow along the outer V. Do not drag the black into the inner corner.
4. Apply a thin layer of black using a pencil liner along the lower lash line.
5. Apply a lengthening mascara.
I used Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara in Black

To recreate Penelope's look: Apply a nude/ skin color shadow all over your lid. Line your upper and lower lash line with a black pencil and smudge it. Drag the pencil a little on the outer corner to create a small wing. Keep the face simple with just powder and use a nude/nude pink color on the lips.

Hi Shrooms!
I used Lakme Shimmer cube in pink and Milani Storm. You can substitute the Lakme color with NYX platinum pink...
