The PINK PANTHER (Smokey Eye)

For this post, I was inspired by the legendary Pink Panther. I love the color and it just spells the glam girl effect. What fun it is to create a monochromatic pink look for the Spring!! The colors are candy floss pink, neon fuchsia and there is a lot of intermixing of textures and eyeshadow silhouettes to get quite a 3 D effect for the eyes.

With Pink Panther being the inspiration I would love to share a pic of what I got inspired from....


At the end of the day, its quite a dramatic bright eye and I leave it upon you to decide the venue where you would don it. I would personally do it for a high fashion photoshoot or maybe a party......Btw I have used pink eyeshadows which are safe and have certified ingredients that are suitable for eyes. Do not use pigments or powder blushers as they do contain certain ingredients that may harm your eyes.

So lets see how to get this punk pink eye......

Begin with concealing the under eyes and any areas of darkness carefully before you begin with the makeup. You can use an eye-shield to get rid of fall outs. I prefer a little fall out of the shimmery shadows in blush or highlighter colors so that is looks quite sparkly and magical in the under eyes. But this is my personal preference for my clients.

Prime the lids for the pink shadows to look vivid.

With UD eyeshadow in Backdoor, very very faintly trace the crease. This is your marking point or a line where the crease will be created with the pink eyeshadows.

For an extra staying power and vibrancy of the pink eyeshadows, use a sticky base like MAC Paint pot in Groundwork. This makes the pinks stick better.

Apply UD eyeshadow in Noise as shown in the pic. I call it applying the color in four corners of the world (globe of the earth) and then drawing across the Northern Hemisphere.

Apply Noise in the crease and blend towards the brow bone. Also apply on the outer third of the lash line.

Soften the stark pink with a lilac toned shimmery fuchsia eyeshadow called Junkshow by Urban Decay.

Add another breath of soft beige-y pearl glimmer with UD eyeshadow in Midnight 15.

Make the inner corners sparkle with a dash of UD eyeshadow in Omen.

Trace the circumference of the eye with Bourjois 16 Hr Kohl and Contour eye pencil in Ultra Black

Apply UD Provocateur eyeshadow on the centre of the lid. It has horrendous amounts of fall outs so spare yourself and get ready to bathe in glitter.

Line the upper lash line with Maybelline Hyperglossy liner and wing it out into a small flick. Slightly define the crease with UD Rapture eyeshadow.

I am a glitter lover and more the glitter the better I feel. So with my fingers I  have applied MAC Glitter in Pink (from the MAC pro store). Excuse the fall outs. I love them a lot though.

This is a variation I am showing. To make the glitter look really strong, I applied some Duo lash glue (safest) on the middle part of my lid and dabbed glitter over it to create the effect. My eyes look like a shiny glittery Louis Vuitton bag.

Finish the look with making the brows stronger. I literally applied UD Blackout + Backdoor in the brows. Curl lashes and apply Clinique High Impact Extreme mascara in Extreme Black.

Compliment the looks with a breezy rosy blush and a lovely pink gloss. For an extreme high fashion effect, use a deep purple or a black lipstick (at your own risk)....
