The Power of Pink
Brighten up those cold winter days. Add a little pink to your beauty routine and discover how wonderful it makes you feel. Play with a varying palette of peaceful and empowering pinks on your eyes, lips, and cheeks. Combining rich, vivid purples and plums along with light and airy pinks makes a stronger, bolder winter statement while still remaining romantic and delicate.
Step 1: Apply Your Base
Create a flawless palette using a foundation that offers maximum coverage with a natural appeal. Applying your foundation with your fingers makes blending a breeze. Do not hesitate to use more than one shade to create the most natural appearance. For this look our lovely model is using Kiss New York Ultra Cover Stick Foundation in Golden Beige (kissnewyorkusa.com).
Set your foundation using a loose translucent setting powder. For a sheer, more lightweight appeal, use a powder brush for the application.
Step 2: Groom Your Brows
Groomed brows are one of the most essential elements to an overall polished look. Maintaining perfectly groomed brows at home is easy when you have the right tools. An electric brow-grooming tool is a simple way to painlessly remove any unwanted brow hairs. Fill in any sparse areas in the brow using brow pencil. Use short, hairlike strokes to simulate the natural look of brow hairs.
Step 3: Apply a Neutral Shadow
Apply a warm, neutral shadow to the entire lid, starting from the lash line and blending upward toward the brow bone.
Apply a highlight to the brow bone using an eye shadow slightly lighter than your skin tone.
Step 4: Apply Your Colored Shadow
Capture this beautifully rich, vibrant purple shade in the IMYB New Art Collection, imakeyoubeautiful.com. Use this delightful crème base as a shadow by using a small shadow brush to apply color from the lash line, blending upward toward the crease. Use the same tone as a liner to rim the eye and to add smolder at the bottom lash line.
Step 5: Add Impact with Fake Lashes and Shimmer Powder
Add impact to the inner corners of the eye with a golden shimmer powder. For this look, a loose pink and gold mineral powder is tapped above the crème base on the inner corners of both eyes. Follow the same step along the bottom lash line.
To make this look a bit more bold and dynamic, add lashes to lift and sculpt the eye. Try I Envy By Kiss Lashes in Au Naturale 02.
Step 6: Paint a Perfect Pout
Paint your pout perfect by lining the lips and adding the perfect pink lipstick. Try Kiss New York Maxi Shine Lipstick in Pink Blush or Pink Blossom. For added impact, power up the look by adding extra emphasis to the cheeks using a touch of blush.
