Long time, no see! So sorry about it, but life’s been busy lately. Moving to another country has been one of the biggest steps in my life so far, but I don’t regret it. I know that this experience will be one of the most interesting and fulfilling ones in my life for sure. Who knows what’s gonna happen, but I’m staying positive.
And today I’m showing you a pink eyeshadow makeup tutorial. All beauty products are listed below.
First, I always use a good moisturizer. This one that I’m using today is from Eveline Cosmetics – light day cream for normal to combination skin. Honestly, I’ve no idea why I bought it when I have dry skin and it’s definitely not for me, but still, it works well on my skin.
Skin makeup products
Foundation: Maybelline Affinitone Hydrating tone-on-tone foundation 16 Vanilla Rose. This foundation is my favorite ever (well, so far). The color vanilla rose perfectly fits my skin tone and I’m amazed by the texture of it, just amazing!
Concealer: Alverde Naturkosmetik Coverstick 01 Naturelle
Contour: Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine Make Up Transformer Drops Darkening
Blush: Terra Naturi Rouge Puder 04 – Royal Apricot
The brushes I’ve applied it with are BH Cosmetics ones.
So this is what my face (or cheek) looks like after I have applied all of the products that are listed above. And this also includes a highlighter from Revolution Makeup – Highlighter Golden Lights.
THE EYES – TUTORIAL
For the tutorial, I will be using a few different eyeshadow palettes. If you don’t have some of these, you can freely use similar color shades from other brands/products.
But before we start, just a disclaimer: I already did my eyebrows and won’t show in this post, but in one of the following articles there will be a full tutorial on my eyebrows!
The first eyeshadow palette I’m using is Catrice Cosmetics The Modern Matt 010 The Must-Have Matts.
The palette comes in four different types of shades:
1. Highlighting (white)
2. Light to medium shades (light beige, beige, pink and light grey)
3. Dark shades (grey, purple, brown)
4. Contour (black).
*The ones I’m using are in bold.
For the first step of this tutorial, I’m mixing two shades from the second category to create an eyeshadow base.
|First light beige (although it looks white on the photo)|
|And then mix with the beige shade|
After I mix the light and darker beige and apply it to the eyelids, they are barely visible.
Still, it’s important to put it first to understand where exactly you’ll be applying other shades. In case you have medium or larger eyelids like I do, this is a great way to prepare yourself for the tutorial.
After the base, it’s time to start with the pink! I apply the third a.k.a. the pink shade from the Catrice palette onto my eyelids to create a soft pink look for the beginning.
I use the pink shade and apply it in the corners and in the middle of the eyelids. It’s crucial that in the corners, the color is darker to create that smokey eye effect.
