How To Wear Glitter Eyeshadow The Priyanka Chopra Way
Though New Year's Eve is officially a thing of the past, the sparkly, festive makeup that's often associated with the occasion certainly is not. That's right, the shimmery shadows you might be afraid to wear in your day-to-day aren't actually all that difficult to pull off. If you still need a bit more convincing, though, it's time to glance at Priyanka Chopra's latest beauty look — one that perfectly demonstrates how to wear glitter eyeshadow during all hours of the day. Spoiler: It's incredibly easy.
Throughout the month of Jan., Chopra debuted a handful of unexpected, copy-worthy beauty looks on Instagram. First, she showed off her fresh highlights, convincing the beauty world that ombré is the shade to experiment with this winter. Now, it's her glitzy, soft-pink eyeshadow that has makeup fanatics in a frenzy.
The 30 year old took to Instagram on Tues. to share a photo of her eye makeup, which she so aptly captioned, "fire and ice." The icy pink lid was created by celebrity makeup artist, Pati Dubroff, who has worked on stars such as Margo Robbie (she was the mastermind behind the actor's dreamy SAG Awards look), Kate Bosworth, and Dakota Johnson, to name a few.
Chopra donned the festive, glittery shadow for an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show — her first official television appearance since her extravagant nuptials back in Dec. The momentous occasion required an equally memorable ensemble — and to say the newlywed nailed it would be a serious understatement.
She paired the sparkly eyeshadow with a silver-beaded Vivienne Westwood midi dress and strappy silver heels. She wore he shoulder-length locks open and in soft waves, and while everything about her look was utter perfection, it's her glittery lids that you won't be able to forget about.
Though Dubroff hasn't yet outlined the exact products she used on Chopra, it's likely she opted for a mix of soft-pink creams, powders, and finely milled glitter, much like she did for Robbie's SAG Awards makeup.
