There’s a thing movie stars do, both on red carpets and in editorials, where they line the inner corners of their eyes with just the right amount of shimmer. Since professional makeup artists are the ones actually doing it, it’s no wonder it’s near impossible to replicate at home. I’ve tried shimmering eyeshadows, creams and even sparkling blush to try and get that Blake Lively effect. Unfortunately, it always ends up smudged, or making my nose glisten instead of my eyes brighten.
In eighth grade, the only makeup I wore was a Hard Candy eyeliner, in pink glitter. So when Dolce & Gabbana’s spring shimmer eyeliner landed on my desk the other day, I was flooded with nostalgia first and a sense of, “Yeah right,” second. But since it’s Dolce (and neutral, instead of pink), I swept it on and voila, it gave me Lively eyes (pun intended) in one fell swoop.
It’s not messy, it’s not even noticeable, it just give the right amount of bright which, come spring, is pretty much all you want from your makeup.
