For eyes, pick a shade of pink that best compliments your eye color. If you have green or brown eyes, find a pink with a more purplish undertone. If you have blue or hazel eyes look for a lighter shade of pink. No matter what color eyes you have, find a duo-shadow that comes with either a brown or dark purple shadow. The dark tones are perfect for creating a sexy, smoky evening look.
