Pink me Up!!!

I have always loved pinks and lilacs and love to couple them up. It's fun to have such colors in your makeup kit as they brighten up your complexion. This look may not be for all so readers' discretion is needed. Lets see what we need…….

  • Clarins Instant smooth perfect touch primer Rs.1450
  • MAC Mineralize Foundation SPF 15 Rs. 1800
  • Clinique All about eyes concealer Rs.1300
  • Clinique Blended Loose powder Rs.1600
  • MAC Powder Blush in Pink Swoon, Plumfoolery and Coygirl Rs.1080 each
  • Estee Lauder Foundation Brush Rs. 1750
  • Estee Lauder Signature Concealer Brush Rs.1325 approx.
  • Estee Lauder Powder Brush Rs.2600 approx
  • Estee Lauder Blush Brush Rs.1600
Prepare face with an oil free moisturizer followed by a sunscreen to create the perfect makeup base. Apply an under eye cream for the concealer to blend better. Apply pea sized amount of Clarins primer over, to conceal pores and make the foundation last longer. With foundation brush starting from the centre of the forehead start applying this amazing cream-to-powder foundation from MAC called Mineralize Foundation SPF 15. Start with fewer amounts as it goes a long way and provides dewy medium coverage without looking oily. Camouflage under eye circles and unevenness with yellow based concealer. Do not forget to apply the concealer on inner corners of upper lid. Dust and set concealer and foundation with smidgen of powder. Do not put too much powder as the foundation as it is dries to a powder finish and the powder may make it look heavy. I suggest not using powder on cheeks. To apply fewer amounts, load fluffy powder brush with very less loose powder and sweep it quickly all over the place. Then with fingers press some powder over the concealer to set it and you are done.
Apply cool matte pink Coygirl blush all over the cheek bones, contouring it with sheer toned Plumfoolery and highlight with pink with opal accents Pink Swoon. This creates gradation of color and looks very flattering. If you cannot achieve this result, then you could just dust Plumfoolery over cheek bones and let it stay.

  • Estee Lauder Double wear eyeshadow primer Rs.975
  • MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque Rs.1100
  • Clinique Color Surge soft shimmer in Rose Pebble and Buff Rs.1050 each
  • Limited edition MAC eyeshadows Dame's Desire (flirty lilac) and Lala (Bright frosted fuchsia pink)
  • Bourjois Effet Smoky pencil in Deep Purple Rs.320
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Lengthening Mascara in Black Rs.1390
  • Estee Lauder Large eye shader brush Rs.1600
  • Estee Lauder Blender brush Rs.1325
  • Estee Lauder Eye liner brush Rs.1200 approx.
  • Estee Lauder Angled eyeshadow brush Rs. 1450 approx.

With concealer brush apply eye primer for the eyeshadows to stay put and go creaseless. Then apply MAC paint pot in Rubenesque all over the lid upto the brow bone as an extra base for the eyeshadows to pop up and look stronger. Trace Deep Purple eye pencil on the lash lines of upper and lower lid and then blend into upper lash line with an angled eye liner brush. With the large eye shader brush dust "buff", shimmery bone color over the brow bone and then highlight the inner corners. Dust shimmery rose pink "rose pebble" eyeshadow over the entire eyelid. With an angled eye shadow brush apply bright fuchsia pink eyeshadow called "Lala" in the crease blending it in outer corners and then taking it upto inner third of the crease. Deepen the crease by layering the eyeshadow as needed. With blender brush smoke out Lala on the lower lids over the deep purple smoky eye pencil. In the outer corners of the upper lid and lower lid apply bright lilac "Dame's Desire" blending it in the upper crease on the outer side. Finish with three coats of lengthening mascara.

  • Clinique Long last lipstick in Spanish Rose FR Rs.1025
  • Clinique Vit.C lip smoothie in Pink Me Up in Rs.101o
  • Clinique Quick Liner for lips in Pink Truffle Rs.950
With fingers blend in Spanish Rose lipstick to get a stained effect. Line the perimeter of lips with pink lip liner to secure from bleeding. Dab on Vit.C lip smoothie on the centre of the lips to get 100000 watt glam effect.

This look can be sported by all but with caution of not overdoing it.

Let me know…

Till then,
