Steps to achieving this simple & sweet make-up look!

Step 1: Prime eyelids with a primer of your choice to help bring out the color of the eyeshadow

Step 2: Apply a matte pink shade of your choice on your eyelid and start in the middle, blend out towards the outer corner of the eye and towards the crease. I used the pink shade from ‘My secret beauty’ palette from Motives cosmetics.

Step 3: Apply a shimmery brighter pink slightly off the center of the eyelid towards the tear duct leaving a small space open. I used Make up studio ‘Golden Pink’ from their Shiny effects line.

Step 4: To give this look a brighter touch add a shimmery white or off white color around the tear duct slightly towards the bridge of your nose and on the brow bone. I used Motives Cosmetics ‘Pearl’ pressed pigment.

Step 5: Also blend in a transition color in the crease to create a soft transition from the pink shade to the highlight on the brow bone. Use a soft light brown color that is also matte. I used Motives Cosmetics ‘Cappuccino’.

Step 6: Use a white eyeliner pencil on the waterline to create the effect of bigger eyes. I used Motives Cosmetics ‘Angel’.

Step 7: Using the same matte pink from step 2 line underneath your eyes with a small brush. I applied it wet for a slightly more intense effect.

Step 8: Apply your favorite mascara or apply falsies for a more dramatic effect. I love a bit of drama personally and I love House of Lashes ‘Noir Fairy’ lashes. I used Noir Fairy ‘Brown’. They are very thick and luxurious, I love them!

For my eyebrows I used my all time favorite combination, which is Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and the brow powder duo. For this look I used the color ‘Brunette’ and the Medium Ash/ Brown powder.

Valentine’s day inspiration!

Hi There Loves!

Here is some Valentine’s day inspiration for you all. The 14th is coming soon, hope you will have a wonderful day!
Who knows you might find the love of your life or find out the next door neighbor has a huge crush on you, haha.

I used Urban Decay Vice 2 palette for this look, absolutely love it! I will post a review of every color from the palette soon. Here I used all the pink-ish shades to get a sugarsweet look and a darker brown shade in the crease to spice things up a bit. Underneath the wing of my eyeliner I applied a bit of silver glitter.

The lashes really compliment this look as I want to show off the brighter pop of pink in the middle, when making looks where you want the eyeshadow to stand out don’t wear lashes that are too heavy. Or just use a bit of mascara for a subtle effect. Here I’m wearing Eyelashi falsies in the style ‘Fancy’. They are super light weight which I love and easy to put on with a tiny bit of lash glue.

For the brows I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow wiz in ‘Brunette’ for a strong accentuated brow.

On the lips I’m wearing Catrice ‘Get the Nudes Paper’ which actually looks like a lipstick with a warm pink color on me. I love it!This time I topped it with Artdeco lipgloss Glam Stars number ’05’.
