If you’re looking to step out of your eyeshadow comfort zone but bright colors still make you nervous, this is the look for you. It’s soft and sweet with a touch of bold. To sum it up completely, I would characterize this look as “Lisa Frank snuck into my tea party, but I’m not mad about it.”
For this look I used the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Sugar Palette, but any pink toned palette should do the trick! As long as you’ve got the star of the show (hot pink eyeshadow), you should be good to go!
Let’s get started.
Step 1: Prime and Set
First your are going to want to prime and set your eyes. In this photo I’ve primed my eyes using the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in the shade “Eden”. Using a large blending brush, set the primer with a translucent powder. I find that setting primer makes eyeshadow blend super easily and stops your lids from feeling *too* sticky. The translucent powder I used to set my lids is the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Instant Retouch Pressed Powder.
Step 2: Transition Shade
Taking a medium-sized blending brush, dip into the shade Sugarcane (powder pink matte). Start from the outer corner of your lid and blend to the top of the inner corner, creating a halo effect.
Step 3: Crease
Dip into Tongue Pop (salmon pink matte) with a small pencil brush. Using that same brush, apply the color to the outer-v of your eye and extend it across the entirety of your crease. Then take a clean a clean blending brush and soften the color you’ve just applied.
Step 4: Lid
Using a flat blending brush, lightly dust the remaining space on your lid with the shade Candy Floss (pinky lilac glitter), making sure to not go past the center of your lid.
Step 5: Prime the Line
Place a pea-sized amount of eyeshadow primer or concealer on the back of your hand. Dip into the primer with an angled liner brush and apply it to your lid in the same way you would apply a clay pot shadow liner. I find that alternating between tapping and sweeping motions works best.
Step 6: Color In
After cleaning off the primer from your angled liner brush, dip it into the shade Cavity (neon pink matte) and tap the color directly onto the eyeshadow primer line until it is completely filled in.
Step 7: Finishing up
Finish up by first using a small pencil brush to apply your original transition shade directly below your lower lash line. As you can see from the above photos, I’m a person who does their eyeshadow before applying concealer/filling in brows. So if you’re like me, I suggest you wait until after putting on your concealer to apply the shadow to your lower lash line. Once you do that, apply mascara to your top and bottom lashes and you’ll be good to go! When doing a look like this, I prefer using a mascara that doesn’t add *too* much extra oomf because I don’t want to take attention away from the neon pink. In these photos I used Sephora’s Lashcraft Big Volume Mascara that I received in my most recent Sephora Play! Box.
