How To Make Ice-Queen Eyeshadow Look Soft & Pretty

Metallic eyeshadow is one of those winter trends that can oh-so-easily cross the line from awesome to tacky. It's just a lot of look. And, contrary to popular belief, not all of us around these parts are trying to make loud statements with our makeup. So, how's a neutral-makeup girl to embrace metals without compromising her love of subtlety?
Well, like all of our most pressing life questions, we went to makeup pro James Vincent for answers. If there's anyone who can take a statement eye and turn it into an understated eye without compromising the prettiness, it's this guy. Watch as he shows Alex exactly how to do it. We think we might have just found our go-to look for the rest of the season.
