STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:
Step 1: After applying your favorite primer and foundation, grab a soft pink eyeshadow with a little bit of shimmer. Too much glitter pigment will make this look a bit too intense, so less is more, go with the shimmer. I chose Makeup Forever Eyeshadow in D862/Fairly Pink. Apply this all over the eyelid and lower lashline and blend outwards softly.
Step 2: Apply a softly shimmering black eyeshadow shade. I chose Urban Decay Eyeshadow in "Oil Slick" which is a charcoal black with a little bit of shimmer. Apply this to the crease and blend well. Place a small amount on the outer lower lashline as well. Blend.
Step 3: Line your eyes with a clean streak of black liner. I love Kat Von D's Liquid Liner in Trooper Black, stays on all day and easy to apply!
Step 4: Apply your favorite voluminous mascara to the lashes in a black tone. I love Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara, it looks intense yet simultaneously natural.
Step 5: Highlight your upper cheekbones with a shimmering, almost champagne shade. Becca x Jacyln Hill's Champagne Highlight collection is phenomenal. It is so natural yet it enhances the skin noticeably. I chose the DUO palette that comes with Prosseco ( a champagne highlight ) and Pamplemousse ( a shimmering blush in a light pink shade ). This makes matching your highlight and blush a breeze. I used the Prosseco shade on the upper cheekbones, along the bridge of my nose lightly and under my eyebrow arch.
Step 6: Apply a naturally, yet shimmering light pink blush shade to the apples of your cheeks and blend well. I used Becca x Jacyln Hill's Champagne Highlight Duo shade Pamplemousse. It blended very smoothly and easily accentuated my cheekbones. TIP/TRICK: You can also swipe this shade right above the crease of the eyes where you had placed your charcoal eyeshadow, this will give some added dimension to the eyeshadow.
Step 7: Apply a light pink, matte lipstick to the lips. I adore Kat Von D's matte liquid line and chose Melancholia for my shade of pink for this look. You're Done!
