Bubble-gum Gleam: Bright Pearl-pink Lips with Smoky Peach-pink lids
I haven’t whipped out the bright sugary-pink lipsticks for awhile now, so today, I thought I’d do a SUPER-simple party look featuring black and pink.
- A black shadow (I used L’oreal’s Eternal Black)
- A peachy-pink shimmer shadow (I used MAC Crushed Metallic Pigment in Rose Light, but L’oreal’s Forever Pink would work perfectly)
- Black mascara
- Soft nude-pink lip pencil (MAC Hip n Happy)
- Shimmery bubble-gum pink lipstick (NYX Jupiter is that perfect 80’s pearl pink)
Step 1: Simply pack the black shadow all over the upper lid, not extending up past the socket line.
Step 2: With a clean brush, gently press a shimmery pink down the center of the lid.
Step 3: Then with that same brush which now has some pink and some black on the bristles, simply buff out the edges of the black shadow to remove any harsh lines. You won’t really need to pick up anymore shadow.
Then finish the look with black mascara on the upper and lower lashes.
Step 4: Apply any soft pink blush.
Step 5: Fill in your lips with a pale pink pencil like MAC Hip n Happy (if you have pale to medium skin). If you have darker skin that that, you can actually skip the pencil. It’s just there to add some color to the pearl pink and prevent it from turning into that 80’s porn-star look.
Finish by applying a coat of the shimmery pink lipstick!
