Do you ever get those eye makeup palettes and have no idea what to do with them? I always find myself using the same two or three colors over and over again. So many colors, so little time! Don't worry. This romantic eye makeup tutorial takes advantage of no less than five of those shimmery little makeup pods.

For this romantic eye makeup tutorial, I used the Beautiful Creatures palette from Pur Minerals. I love Pur Minerals' powerful shadows that pack a ton of color with minimal effort. This palette in particular is perfect for a romantic look, filled with deep purples and shiny dark browns.
