Pink is HOT this year! Spring collections from Lancome, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, Stila and more feature shades of pinks and taupes. Instead of the same old, same old. I paired a popping pink with a holographic steel blue eyeshadow into an amazing look!
Here’s what I used…
- Purely Cosmetics’ Cotton Candy eyeshadow ($6.50 each, or get the sample set for a WHOLE slew of colors!!)
- Purely Cosmetics’ Seashell Pearl eyeshadow
- Purely Cosmetics’ Soft Moon shadow. My photo above does not do this eyeshadow justice. It’s a gorgeous mix of blues, gunmetal grays, silvers and a slight turquoise. So very cool!
Apply the Cotton Candy shadow (the light shimmer pink) across your entire lid and up past the crease. Blend it out until the line disappears into your skin.
In the center of upper eyelid (i.e. center third of eyelid), apply Seashell Pearl shadow (mid-tone pink and coral).
In the outer third of your eye (the “V”) apply Soft Moon eyeshadow by carefully loading your brush and “smooshing” (yep, that’s a technical term) onto your skin. You want to press the shadow onto your lid, rather than sweeping it across. This concentrates the color and helps prevent fallout during application.
Using a small brush (eyeliner brush or even a stiff lip brush), use Soft Moon eyeshadow to line your upper and lower lashline. Apply mascara and done!
