How I Rock Pink Eyeshadow (A Collaboration With Jen and Adia)

Wearing Ardency Inn Rose Gold Eyeshadow, Becca Rose Gold Pressed Eyeshadow, and MAC Finally Free Lipstick

A friend and I recently had a photography date in a charming neighborhood, snacking on amazing salted caramel “cake” donuts (they are as good as they sound). It was a picture perfect weekend, so I decided to take advantage of the amazing weather to wear pink.


This week Jen, Adia and I are showcasing our favorite way to rock pink eyeshadow, and I call this look “Rose Gold Eyeshadow for a Day of Donuts and Photoshoots.”

Here are a few of my favorite pink-toned pieces…

Ardency Inn “Rose Gold” — the singles pop out from the magnet!

naked 3 palette

Urban Decay Naked 3. I used this palette to blend

What I used:

  • Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer ($29): I have the shade called Honey, and I’m joining the bandwagon… It’s an awesome concealer. I use it to target my problem areas, and I can skip the foundation step on good days.
  • MAC Charged Black Mineralize Multi-Effect Lash ($22): From the MAC Future Collection, this mascara is lightweight and lengthening. No crazy volume here. but I have been using this for weeks.
  • Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ($19): There are 2 types of people in this world — those who love the Tattoo Liner, and those who prefer the Ink Liner. I always come back to the Tattoo because I love the flexible soft brush pen.
  • MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Finally Free Lipstick ($17): This is with me in my minimal makeup bag, and I can’t recommend this color enough. SO pretty and perfect. I didn’t re-apply after the donuts, though, so it’s not present in the outdoor images.
  • Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38): As the only Shimmering Skin Perfector I own, this deserves a special place on my vanity. Rose Gold is a highlighting blush or a blush-topper for the lighter skinned girls.
  • Ardency Inn Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments ($21): The star of my look, Rose Gold is the creamiest, most nuanced rose-taupe eyeshadow I’ve seen. A perfect pick for anyone interested in getting into pinks.
  • Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette ($54): I use the darker shades in this palette constantly for many of my looks. They blend perfectly, and I love the matte colors in particular. I used some of the darker shades to quickly shade in my eyebrows too.

Yum Donuts!


I hope you liked the photos from our day! Also, the donuts are from Revolution Donuts, a small independent donut shop and cafe with locations in Decatur and Atlanta, Georgia. It’s in a small neighborhood, but it’s somehow always busy.

I’ll see you in the next,

    I love my Naked 3 palette almost as much as the first one! I wanted to get that lipstick had it in my cart but took it out when I placed my MAC order yesterday. It’s pretty on you but not unique enough for me. I think I have similar lipsticks already. You rock neutral looks well but I like more intensity in my looks. Wish I could wear neutrals especially lipsticks but they just look boring on me. On my coloring gold looks neutral.All the pink brown “Kylie Jenner” lipstick colors wash me out!

  2. Marie says:

    Hey Anna, great post! I love your pink sequin bomber jacket – could you please tell me where you got from? Thank you!!

  3. Kirsten says:

    I love your eye look. It’s very elegant.

    This is such a pretty look. I love your sparkly jacket in the first picture.

    Love your look; I am drawn to the Naked 3 palette, but I don’t usually wear pink on my eyes. I have Bobbi Brown Rose Gold e/s, you’ve inspired me to give it some love 🙂 and that donut sounds delish!

    Anna this is such a beautiful look on you. Really rosy and flattering.

    But the question on everyone’s lips:

    WHERE is your incredible sequin jacket from?!

  11. jonirae says:

    I second, third, fourth, sixth, seventh the props for that sequin jacket! it’s not something I could ever really see myself wearing, but in a perfect world I’d definitely give it a shot!! you look really cute in it, it’s a great outfit! Aren’t photoadventure days the best? 🙂

  12. Amy says:

    Wow that donut looks incredible. 😉 The rose gold concept is more in my color range than hotter pinks, though usually still too warm for my medium rosy skin. Looks great on you! All three of these related posts are lovely.

  13. You look lovely in pink! Beautiful look, so soft and natural.
