Bet You Didn’t Know You Could Do THIS With Eyeshadow

We all have a favorite shimmery base eyeshadow. You know the one — that light shade you wear over and over again. The color is so close to your natural lid that it's guaranteed to look good no matter how much you pile on. And, while it's easy to confuse its versatility with being basic, you'll never make that mistake again after you hear our chat with YouTube beauty vlogger Casey Holmes. Above, in our second episode of Face To Face with Microsoft, Holmes shows photo director Sarah McDowell how to turn a light, shimmery nude eyeshadow into a multitasking highlighter. Just blend the powder on top of your cheekbones, along the nose bridge and Cupid's bow, and on the forehead and chin — and voilà. Shine on, friends.
