We’re obsessed with Salma Hayek—her brains, her talent, her incredible face. Something else we love? The beauty risks that she takes on the regular, and her latest red carpet look is no exception. Never in a million years would we have thought to pair pink eyeshadow with a slightly smoky eye and lined nude-toned lips, but Salma has truly shown us the way.
The secret to this stunning eye look? Not one but two pink eyeshadows. Mary Phillips, Hayek’s long time beauty guru, says that by using a shimmery rose—the lightest shade in Tom Ford’s Eyeshadow Quad in Seductive Rose, $80—on top of a similarly colored matte shade. “The matte brings out the shimmer, and the shimmer brings out the matte, and those opposing forces make her natural eye color sparkle,” Phillips tells People. A little bit of smudgy black eyeliner topped off with volumizing mascara ties the entire look together beautifully.
The trick to wearing pink eyeshadow is to make sure it stays on your upper lid; rimming your entire eye with it can make you look like you have conjunctivitis. It’s also important to keep a neutral colored “barrier” between the rosy shadow and your eye—like Salma’s black eyeliner—to make sure the shade doesn’t make your peepers look unduly red.
And if you don’t want to embrace Salma-level bright pink shadow? Ease into it with a splash of pale rose. Tom Ford’s shimmery shadows are highly pigmented yet sheer, so wearing the light shade minus the matte will give you a romantic, not overpowering, wash of color. It’s the perfect, wearable way to embrace pink shadow this summer.
