Work the eye makeup magic…

Like they say, it’s all in your eyes and guess what, your eye makeup literally holds all attention.
SEPHORA being that one-stop shop for all my beauty needs, I dropped by to the latest outlet in India at Palladium, Mumbai to indulge on a Saturday afternoon.  The quickest way to refresh the spring summer beauty kit is by changing the colour palette.
The WoW colours that are trending right now are pink, peach and purple that can brighten up your face instantly.

Here’s how to work the magic of eye makeup:
☆Apply a pink eyeshadow on your upper eyelids.
☆Add a purple shadow to the crease of the eyes and blend it in seamlessly.
☆You can wing out the ends and brush out the lashes with two coats of mascara.

Wear this look for the day and add a hint of glitter for the night.
