What I'm Loving Now; Hot Pink Eyeshadow

As a makeup artist I love trying new shades of eyeshadow. Recently I noticed a model in an advertisement wearing pink eyeshadow so I decided to try it myself! I think pink eyeshadow can be quite captivating but I realize it's not for everyone. I tends to look best on ladies with a pale skin complexion. Here is the inspiration for the look:

 so beautiful but not really a look for real life

Here is my take on the look:

I wish I would have put a little more pink gloss on but you can still see how pretty and bright the pink shadow makes the eyes look! 

This is what I used:
just the pink from the Loreal HIP duo Brazen $8.99

The key to this look:
-use an eyeshadow with really good pigment
-don't match the eyeshadow with your clothing- you will end up looking like Barbie
-pale pink lips look best for day or you can do a deeper pink for evening
-line the eyes with black liner

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Pin It


  1. I like it. I think a deeper hue, deeper pigmented pink would look fab on ladies with darker skin. Say Eva Longoria to Iman skin colorings.

  2. You look gorgeous. Makes your eyes really pop!

  3. Thank you Sunny! Yes, I totally agree Khola! I think there is a perfect pink for almost every skin tone!
