Pretty in Pink: A Makeup Tutorial

June 29, 2014

Hey Everyone!

It’s been a while since I did a tutorial, so I created a look today to share. It’s very soft and feminine perfect for a date night or a daytime event.

I already did my base, since it’s pretty similar most of the time so I will just list what I used. Excuse the blurry photo, the lighting was just not cooperating with me so this is the best shot I got.

Base:

Simple Light Hydrating Moisturizer

L’Oreal Magic Lumi Primer

L’Oreal True Match Foundation- N1 Soft Ivory

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer- Very Light/Fair

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer NW15 (to highlight)

Brows

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Whiz- Soft Brown

Maybelline Great Lash- Clear

 

Once the base was all done I bronzed up my face with Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer (forehead, temples, cheeks, neck) and then contoured with it as well. After bronzer I moved onto blush and I chose Nars Orgasm blush to get a peachy-pink glow. To compliment I highlighted with The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer. The gold-champagne tones of this compliments the blush really nicely

To finish off the face, I set it with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light. This reflect beautifully in photos.

Eyes

Okay so onto the star(s) of the show the eyes. For my base, I used the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Inked in Pink and applied it with my fingers onto the lid and slightly into the crease area. Using a Real Techniques Crease Brush, I picked up Limit from the Naked 3 palette and buffed that into and above the crease. This gives the eye great definition and shape without being too dark. I am going pretty light with this look, with no harsh colours.

Once Limit was buffed into the crease, I decided to pick up my Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz on a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. I just mixed all the colours together for this look. I then placed this colour all over the lid. This had a beautiful iridescence and changes depending on the lighting, it really draws attention to the eyes. Once this was on the lid, I took a blending brush to blend the edges of the 2 colours together to make it seamless. I also placed this in the inner corner as well. To add a little more dimension, I used a smaller crease brush to place Nooner in the outer V and in the crease. This defined my eyes even further without adding much darkness.

To brighten, I placed strange on my brow bone to brighten and highlight.

To pull the look together I used a Real Techniques Accent Brush to place Darkside on the outer half of my lower lashline. On the inner half, I went back to the Shimmer Brick.

Image

Since this is such a soft look, I added a thin line of Essence Gel Liner in Midnight in Paris to give some definition. You could wing it out at this point if you’d like, but I decided to just keep it very soft.

Image

Then I curled my lashes and added mascara!

Lips

Once the eyes were complete, it was time for lips. I decided to keep with the pink theme and started by lining my lips with the Essence Lipliner in Wish Me a Rose and then using MAC Creme Cup lipstick. That looked a little dry so I added the NYX Butter Gloss and Eclair on top.

Here is the finished look:

    This is so pretty! I have Naked3, so I might give this a try on me. It’s a nice way to combine some of the darker shadows which I seem to be too scared to try most of the time.
