Myth busted! Bold eye shadow isn’t just for ’80s-themed parties, and the summery turquoise hue Dianna Agron wore is proof. We love how the unexpected pop of color doesn’t scream obvious, so we caught up with her makeup artist Gianpaolo Cecilato to find out how to rock bright eyes the right way. The trick? Define your eyes first, then layer the color on after. “I used the duo eye shadow by Dolce & Gabbana in Laguna to get the look,” he said. Cecilato began by running the brand’s eyeliner in Emerald ($30; sephora.com) along Agron’s waterline. He swept a thin coat of black cream liner at the base of her top lashes, then moved on to the shadow palette. “I applied the darker shadow up to the crease and blended it, and smudged the color along the bottom lashes from side to side,” he added. We love it! Pick up the shadow palette for $42 at sephora.com.
