I’m always looking for makeup inspiration on social media. I try to see what beauty vloggers and celebrities are doing, so that I can test it out too. One celebrity I always go to is Rihanna. She always has something bold and exciting on, from striking purple lips to electric blue eyeshadow. Recently she posted a photo on Instagram wearing a smoky metallic eye look. It was a silver shade with brown blended in to make it a bit softer.
If you’re a fan of this shimmery effect, here are some eyeshadow palettes you can test out. They range from nude tones to more bold colors like green and blue.

These nude shades are taken up a notch with the addition of glitter. You can mix the shimmery browns with the matte colors to give your look more dimension. You can also use a damp brush and apply the product on like a liner. Available at Beauty Bar, Central Square.
