Pretty in Pink Prom Makeup: Medium to Deep Skintones

Hi Lovelies!

Over the past few weeks I have been creating new looks for spring with some fun new products.  I recently had a client ask me for tips on prom makeup and decided to create a fun, pink eye look!  This look is perfect for prom night or just a night out. If you are like me and love doing a glam look all the time, then you will also love this look.

The Products:

Kat Von D’s Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette (read my review here)

Becca Cosmetics Luminous Blush in Foxglove and Camellia

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion

Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW in Ebony (always remember your brows)

 

How to Get The Look:

I have been totally in love with the new Luminous Blushes from Becca Cosmetics.  In addition to creating soft shimmering cheeks, I have also been using them as eyeshadows as well because I love the finish and they blend so easily.

  1. After applying my eyeshadow primer all over the lid,  I applied the blush in Camellia from my lashline to my crease. I suggest using a soft patting motion with a small eye shadow brush.  In order to really make the pink pop I layered on my other favorite luminous blush color in Foxglove.
  2. Using my favorite crease brush by MAC, Brush 217, I applied the matte black from       the Shade and Light Contour Palette, Shax, in the outer-V.  I then took a clean               crease brush (my other 217) and blended the deep brown shade, Sytry, into the crease for a smokey effect.
  3. I decided to skip a shimmery highlight on the brow bone, and decided to simply blend some concealer to define my brows and lightly set with the peachy shade Ludwin in the palette.
  4. With a dramatic eye look, lashes are an essential element.  The perfect pair of lashes will help to complete the look and up the glam factor. With my eye shape I prefer a very full lash with this look to open up the eye.
