Glee songstress Naya Rivera looked bright-eyed and beautiful at a party in West Hollywood earlier this week. Her fuss-free blown back hair (a 90’s trend that is making a big comeback) gave way to her stunning eye makeup and glowing complexion.
One thing that makes Naya’s almond-shaped eyes stand out even more than usual is the subtle trace of purple eyeshadow you see around the inner corners of her eyes. To get a similar look, we recommend smoothing on a layer of your favorite foundation, followed by a peach blush (we love Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin). Dust an illuminating highlighter down the bridge of your nose and over your cheekbones for some additional glow and definition. To start your eye makeup, we recommend using an eyeshadow stick to coat your lid (try Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst), and then dusting a powder eyeshadow on the inner third part of your lid (try Urban Decay Cosmetics Eye Shadow in AC/DC). Follow by tracing a thin line along your top and bottom lashes, smudging it a bit with your finger or a q-tip (for a dramatic look like Naya’s, line your upper and lower waterlines with the same black liner). Finish by swiping on a nude lip gloss and a few coats of mascara.
