2. Lise Watier Duo Shadow and Glitter in Plum Star ($25, 6.5 g)
3. Cover Girl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadow in Fairytale (shown: two colours from the quad palette; $7, 5.5 g)

Remember the classic rule of makeup: Don’t overdo colour. If you do a smouldering eye, keep your lip colour softer. If you go for the dark glamour of a burgundy lip, do a neutral eye.
