Directions:

Step 1

Using a flesh-toned liner like the NYX Wonder Pencil, I am going to start by tracing the outline of the geometric shape surrounding my eye. It is essentially an inverted triangle. This helps to perfect the shape before going in full force with your pink.

Step 2

Using a flat, synthetic brush, begin applying your pink cream color, working from the outside toward the inside. It doesn’t dry very well but don’t worry — we’ll set it!

Step 3

Apply cream color over entire eyelid, bringing it all the way over your brows.


Step 4

Using a fluffy brush, lightly dab a matte pink shadow like Savage from the Urban Decay Electric Palette, over the cream color. This will help to set it, prevent creasing and smudging.

Step 5

With your same brush, sweep a little of the pink shadow under your cheekbones for some subtle '80s contour.

Step 6

Now, with a metallic pink liquid liner, trace the perimeter of your pink triangle for added definition.

Step 7

Dip a brush into glitter adhesive, followed by a generous amount of loose pink glitter. Dab some along the inner edge of your triangle, using you finger to blend it out.
