Prom Makeup: Serious Sparkle

To add a bit of definition, I swept a taupe eyeshadow into the crease above my eyelids. Silver can be tricky, because unless you are extremely pale and cool toned, it can look quite harsh and draining. Using a taupe or cool-toned brown can help soften the edges and keep the look grounded. The specific shadow I used for this is Pewter from my Lorac Pro palette.
