So I spent most of my weekend binge-watching Pretty Little Liars (I’m only on season 4… no spoilers please.)  Every time the iconic intro showed, I couldn’t help but notice how much I loved Alison DiLaurentis’ shimmery bronze eyeshadow.  Today I was inspired to try to get my makeup to look the same.  Here is how I recreated the Pretty Little Liars Intro Eyeshadow…
