A Step by Step Pink Eyeshadow Makeup Look – Tutorial

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.

Now, to the topic. A few blog posts ago, I’ve shown you my everyday makeup look which features brown smokey eye tutorial. You can check it out here.

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.


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.

Step one 

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.

Step two

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.

So make sure to apply more layers of the pink eyeshadow in the corner than in the middle and create that effect.

Step three

After I’m done with the Catrice palette, I go onto the second one which is called  Wet n Wild color icon eyeshadow trio E336 Spoiled Brat.
It has three different shades: silver, black and hot pink. All of which are shiny colors. Out of three, I’m just going to pick the third one – hot pink.
Since the shade is much darker than the previous pink one, I had to apply it in the upper and left corner. Still, on the skin, it doesn’t look as dark as in the palette. But it definitely gives some extra shine and color to an overall look.
And now this is what it looks like on me so far:
Excuse me for my forehead (insert laughing emoji)

Step four

Next up is some extra glow, I took this mono eyeshadow – Maybelline New York Color Tattoo 24HR Gel-Cream Eyeshadow 65 Pink Gold. This one was also in my July favorites and I’ve been loving it ever since!
I applied the color tattoo onto the middle of my eyelids and it gave me a smoother and more sophisticated look. If you don’t have the same eyeshadow, you can use a similar one, but make sure it’s in the gel because that adds the smooth facade.

Step five

“Some girls are born with glitter in their veins.” -Paris Hilton. And as this look was inspired by the iconic shiny pink of the early 2000s, I’ve decided to add one more mono eyeshadow to the look.
The one I’m using is called Essence Metal Glam 03 Frosted Apple eyeshadow.

This is what it ends up looking on my eyes:

Step six 

It’s time to put eyeliner on it to create a more compelling look. The eyeliner I’m using is the one in pen from Misslyn – Liquid Eyeliner 1 Long Lasting. As I’ve mentioned in the previous makeup tutorial for the brown smoky eye, this eyeliner is made as a pen, so it’ much easier to apply than the real liquid ones. Less mess for you!
And here is what it looks like on me:

Step seven

The tutorial is almost over, but there’s one thing that’s a must when it comes to makeup looks – a good mascara. The one I’ve been loving lately is Maybelline New York Total Temptation Black Mascara. If you are looking for a mascara with big volume and length and leaves no clumps, this is the one!
And of course, an eyelash curler is a crucial thing, make those lashes pop!

Step eight

And the last step is the lipstick (or a lipgloss, or really anything you want to use, lip balm is fine, too). I used the lipstick – Manhattan Lip Laquer Reds Rock 50G.
And this is what I look like at the end of this tutorial:
