Wearing iridescent eyeshadow
This eyeshadow look was one of the most popular looks from Korean beauty shows last year. All over, people were talking about how pretty the iridescent eyeshadow look was and how they wanted to try it themselves. But what’s great is that when you see how it goes together in a makeup tutorial, you can learn a lot about applying colorful or unusual shadow colors in general. So even if you end up not liking this particular version, hopefully, something here can help improve your application!
The pink iridescence in the center of the eyelid photo above is created by layering a pink/peach shade over a metallic rose gold base color. I’ve found that the best way to make these kinds of colors work is to start with a metallic base color. This will help create a more luminous and metallic effect that will complement the iridescent shades you’ll be layering on top.
After your base color is in place, it’s time to start adding your iridescent shades. I’m using pink in this look, but you could use any color you like- blue, green, purple, etc. The key is to experiment until you find what looks good on you!

I’m using a powder eyeshadow for the pink shade, but if you want something more intense or longer-lasting, you can try using a cream eyeshadow or even an eyeliner. I would recommend using a brush to apply this shade, as it will give you more control and help to avoid any harsh lines.
Starting at the outer corner of your eye, use a light sweeping motion to apply the shadow across the lid. Try not to go too close to the inner corner, as you’ll want that space to be completely white for maximum impact.
Once you’ve applied the pink shade all over the lid, it’s time to add some contrast. I’m using a black eyeshadow in this look, but you could use any dark color that you like.
