Star Status Eye Shadow from mark is absolutely gorgeous!

For multidimensional looks that are totally out of this world, go for this palette with three coordinating highly pigmented, super-pearlized shades. The baked, wet/dry formula ensures color keeps twinkling for hours and hours! Compact features full built-in mirror; dual-ended brush applicator included.

Brand Ambassador Ashley Greene made her mark at the “Breaking Dawn 2” Photo Call in South Africa last week. Celebrity Makeup Artist Vanessa Scali used THIS eye shadow when creating Ashley’s stunning look.

Eyes – Shadow:

“I did a soft wash of bronze, shading mark Star Status Eye Shadow Palette in Earth Angel from Ashley’s lash lines to just past her natural crease. I swept a bit of the warm taupe shade under her lower lashes to give the eyes extra emphasis. To lengthen and add depth, I used a touch of the bottom, light shade in the natural creases of her eyes and on the outer corners. This shade extends past her natural eye lines and wraps under her bottom lashes. I blended a touch of mark No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Solid Gold on the bottom, inner corners of her eyes, popping light on the area and opening the eyes.”

I have this eye shadow in Earth Angel, and it really, truly is beautiful! Best part is, you get three gorgeous shadows for only $14!!
