Eye Makeup Tutorial: Make The Pink Blink
To overcome the black and grey eye obsession, I tried a different eye makeup look this time. I wanted to go with bright lively colors but still could not abstain myself from using a black (ish) color. Honestly, every time I resolute not to use a black or grey eye shadow I end up breaking the resolution in the next very minute itself. I am baffled if it is only me or every makeup freak has a penchant towards black eyes. No matter, how many times I remind the non-black (y) eye makeup look to my mind but when it comes to actual application the brush gets attracted to closest-matching-black pan. Anyway, I am happy that in this look I could at least include a shade from my favorite color family.
Enough with the blabbering lets jump to the tutorial.
Steps to be followed to create ‘Make The Pink Blink’ eye makeup look
Step 1: Apply primer on your eye lid, and near the lower lash line.
Step 2: Apply a dark shade, using Deadshot from Zoeva Rodeo eye shadow palette, on outer and inner corners ensuring that you do not cross the crease line. Though you have the liberty to be little careless as you reach the centre of eyelid, cover the corners and edges fully. In case of any fallout you should tap off the excess product before application.
Step 3: Now take a bright shade of pink family, using Bang Bang from Zoeva Rodeo eye shadow palette, and apply it on center of eye lid. Again, ensure that the color does not go beyond crease line. Carefully, pat it on eyelid overlapping with dark shade (Deadshot) on both ends. If your eyeshade is giving fallout then seal the under eye area with loose powder to save time that otherwise have to be spent on cleaning up the mess.
Both the shades that are used in step 2 & 3 have some shimmer in them. In case you do not like a lot of glistening effect then you can go with either 1 matte shade or both.
Step 4: Use a blending brush in wiper motion to soften the edges of both shades. While you do so go above the crease line so that it creates a hue of color transition. If you blend below crease line there is high probability that you will end up taking off the eyeshade itself.
Step 5: Take a color that is 2 or 3 shades lighter than your skin tone, and apply it on your brow bone. I am using Early Sunrise from Zoeva eye shadow palette. Focus underneath the brow arc as that is the area you want to highlight the most – to make your brows appear in perfect shape.
Step 6: Now, take the color you have used in step 3, Bang Bang in this case, and apply it on your lower lash line. Start from inner eye corner and extend the color to 1/3rd of your lower lash line.
Step 7: Apply dark shade, the one you have used in step 1- Deadshot, starting from outer corner till you cover 2/3rd of your lower lash line.
Step 8: Line up your upper lash line with eye liner. Be thin at the inner corner but keep increasing the thickness as you move outwards.
Step 9: This is the most important step as good mascara has the ability to revamp your overall eye makeup look. Using favorite mascara, you should curl up upper and lower lashes.
Step 10: In case of any fallout clean up the mess from under eye area. You can wipe off the extras using loose powder, followed by concealer.
