So I am thinking that I am going to start a “Look Of The Week” aka LOTW. Thoughts?? Yea I think it is the best idea every too. I have to admit I am kinda, ok really excited, about it!! Ready? I know I am. Let’s go….
This last weekend, for Easter actually, I did a pretty pink look. Very spring is here type of makeup. My girls whenever I do a pink look call it “Princess” makeup. Apparently pink makeup = princess. I am okay with this.
Here is what I used:
- Black Kohl eyeliner
- Sephora eyeshadow pallet
- Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara
- Maybelline Baby Skin primer
- BellaPierre Mineral Foundation
- Bobbi Brown blush in Pink Peony
- Maybelline lipstick in Nude Lust
Okay I always do my eye makeup first. This way if I end up with lots of fall out, clean up is easy and I don’t have to worry about ruining my foundation. Line your upper and lower waterline with the black pencil.
Apply Cream all over the lid, from lash line to brow. Apply Dusty Rose on the outer third of your eyelid, from lash to crease. Last, apply Desert into the crease and slightly above it.
Apply Maybelline Baby Skin to face. You only need the size of pea for your entire face.
Using a big fluffy brush, apply the mineral foundation. Start by stippling it on under your eyes, around your nose, on your chin, and on your forehead. The using big circular motions, apply it to the rest of your face.
Using a blush brush apply the Bobbi Brown to your cheeks. The great thing about this blush is, even though it looks kinda over the top bright pink, it apply’s really nicely and you can build the color easily. A good tip on how to determine where to apply it is to not go closer to your nose then two finger widths. You want to stay on your actual cheek bone, brush up the bone all the way to your hairline and up your temple. You want the blush to frame your eyes.
Apply your lipstick.
Last but not least, curl your eyelashes and apply mascara. Please see here as to the best technique to apply it.
A very simple, yet pretty spring look. What are your thoughts? Do you equate pink makeup looks with Disney Princesses? Is this something that you would wear or do you stay with more natural colors? Let me know.
