I may have mentioned this once or twice before (or three times or four), but I absolutely love pink makeup. I think pink is a great way to wear subtle color, and since I’ve never met a pink eyeshadow I don’t like, I thought it would be fun to collaborate with Jen and Anna, who’ll be sharing their looks soon, and share with you one way that each of us likes to wear pink eyeshadow.
The look I’m wearing at the top is how I like to rock pink eyeshadow, and I have to thank some awesome readers for the inspiration! One reader mentioned that the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Concentrated Crayons would be great as eyeshadow bases, and another raved about the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette.
I took the comments to heart and used them both for this springy pink look. Thanks so much, ladies! I love hearing your comments, questions and tips, so keep them coming! Seriously, the comments make my day 🙂
To achieve this look, I used Maybelline Color Tattoo 25HR Concentrated Crayon in Pink Parfait as a base all over my eyelids, then applied Zone from the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani palette in my crease using a Morphe E22 brush.
With the Zoeva Luxe Smoky Shader brush (first mentioned in this post on Zoeva), I packed Harajuku onto my lids, and Harajuku, by the way, is a pink lover’s dream! It’s hot pink and sparkly, but when used with Zone it’s not too bright.
And then on my brows I used ColourPop Cosmetics Brow Pencil in Black N’ Brown and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara on my lashes.
For my base, I used Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation in Warm Honey, and this was my first time using this foundation. For the record, it’s amazing! I’ve tried other glowy foundations (I’ve reviewed Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow and L’oreal Lumi Cushion), but this is probably my favorite so far because of the buildable coverage and longevity.
On my cheeks, I used MAC Sweet as Cocoa blush, which is my go-to when I want a natural blush that won’t clash with the rest of my makeup. I also used Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Illuminator to highlight.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminators are great because they add a really pretty sheen that doesn’t emphasize pores.
On my lips, I used Anastasia Beverly Hills lipgloss in Dusty Lilac, and I am OBSESSED with this gloss. It’s the perfect pinky/lavender.
Which reminds me, I am so impressed with the ABH lip glosses (I have a post on my favorites from Anastasia Beverly Hills on my blog) and think these are the best lip glosses in my collection.
So, how do you rock pink eyeshadow? You know the drill… Spill your favorites in the comments! 🙂
