It’s Valentine’s Day next Tuesday, so I thought why not do a look inspired by the Red, Pink, Blush tones the day is well known for. For me, makeup looks to do with these hues in mind is perhaps one of my favourite types to create – not only on myself as I think this look complements everyone! I’m not saying I only do pink-toned makeup for V-Day, but for whenever I want to feel pretty in pink, this is a makeup look I’d generally go for.
Base- L’Oréal True Match Foundation in shade: 8.N. Cappuccino
Concealer- L.A. Girl Pro HD Concealer in shade: Beautiful Bronze
Cream Contour & Bronzer (2 in 1)- Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Shade: Chestnut
Under Eye Setting Powder- M.A.C. Studio Careblend Pressed Powder in Shade: Dark
Highlight (subtle)- Bare Minerals All Over Face Powder in shade: Warmth + MUA’s Single Eyeshadow in Bronze (for a more exaggerated glow)
Blush- I Used a subtle, dark rose, pink shade from a Nars palette in collaboration with Andy Warhol (Discontinued)
Brows- NYX Eyebrow Gel in Shade: Espresso
Eye Base- I used a matte brown eyeliner on the inner and outer part of my eyelid (blended first, before I apply eyeshadow).
To set only the outer area while blending upwards for a ‘cat eye’ effect, I used an eyeshadow from the Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette in Panther (an intense dark brown/black shade).
Next, I covered my lid with a satin-finished blush from Sleek’s Blush Palette in Sugar, making sure the edges of the brown shadow was transitioned into the pink tones on the crease of my eyelid.
Adding pops of shimmer on the lids and high points of my eyes while keeping within the theme of pink, I took a flat dense eyeshadow brush and pressed it into MUA’s Single Eyeshadow in Bronze (even though the actual colour is a pearlescent pink shade).
Lastly for Eyeliner and Mascara:
Liner- Nyx Liquid Liner: Black
Mascara- Bourjois Queen of Attitude Mascara
Hope this makeup gives you a little-added inspo for any of your upcoming looks you create this Spring!
Lots of love,
