What to Do If Your Eyeshadow Is Too Pink

Help a Reader Out With Her Too-Pink Eye Shadow

Reader poofie126 submitted the following question in the BellaSugar Q and A group. Can you help her out?

After hearing people go on and on all over the Internet about NYX Eye Shadows, I gave in and got myself Ultimate Pearl in Golden Pink Pearl ($3). And it is lovely. [The] texture is almost creamy, and the pigmentation is crazy for something that price. [The] problem is, I hate the color! It's my own fault, really. I'll admit [that I] bought it online and didn't bother searching for swatches first. I am Asian. I have fair skin with yellowish undertones, and I think the color looks just plain gaudy on my eyes. I tried mixing it with other colors, [like] bronzes and golds, but they ended up looking like I have a black eye. I tried using it as a blush, and that works OK [but it's a] little too shimmery. Does anyone have any other solutions?
