Use the shimmery gold shade as a base color and cover the entire lid, into the crease. Next, apply the dark chocolate shade to the outer corner of the eye, blending into the crease and lower lid in a v-shape to create a smoldering effect. Lighten up the inner corner of your lid with the lightest shade in the trio for a wide-eyed look. Lastly, take a creamy black liner and smudge it along the lash line for maximum intensity.

For a light daytime look, wear a shimmery nude shade such as Iced Topaz. This lightly sparkling, sheer neutral hue works with almost any look. Take it up a notch at night with Burnished Gold, a matte golden bronze. This sun-kissed honey shade is incredibly versatile, adding just the right amount of drama without overdoing it.
