Dakota Fanning was a vision in pink and gold at the Tribeca Film Festival recently. The actress wore a bold pink dress and played up her signature platinum blonde locks with a Grecian goddess-style headband. Her outfit was certainly flattering, but it was her eye makeup that pulled the look together.
Although matching your eyeshadow to your outfit is typically not recommended, Fanning shows us a way to do it tastefully, using a light pink shadow and highlighting with a super-shimmery yellow-gold. Here's how to copy the actresses adorable spring look using a 120 eyeshadow palette you have at home.
Always start with an eye primer. This will help the color glide on smoothly and evenly while giving lasting power. Fanning's skin is super-light as it is, but if yours is darker, the primer will also allow the light colors to stand out.
Apply the lightest shade of pink eyeshadow you have to your entire upper eyelid, then add one shade darker pink to the crease. Using a blending brush, mix the colors together but do not extend too far past your crease. Highlight your brow bones with a touch of light, shimmery shadow.
After your top lid is perfect, dip a flat liner brush into your brightest, most sparkly shade of gold. Fanning's has a yellow tint that makes it stand out on her skin. Apply this color along the rim of your inner corners, then underneath your entire bottom lashline. You can make it a bit thicker at the outer corner of your eye and blend it with the pink shadow there.
