The California Gurl's look is all about an exaggerated, candy-coated version of old Hollywood glamour. Use bright pink shadow on the eyelid, with light brown shadow in the crease. Then grab your trusty liquid liner — start the line thinly at the inner corner, then fatten it up as you go out and make a dramatic point toward the end of the eyebrow.
