I must have been watching too much NRWZD to be inspired to do a “cute” and “innocent” look complete with cutesy poses. >.<
I’m a fan of pink eyeshadows because they do add a touch of youthfulness and purity to the eyes but done wrongly and it’d look like you are having an allergy. The choice of pink is also critical (wow, now I’m sounding analytical), and the best type of pink that I like to work with has to be slightly sheer and translucent.
When it comes to translucent and shimmery, no one does it better than Lunasol. And since I only have one pink-themed quad from them, I used the Lunasol Summer Pink Gradation palette that was previously used for a look here.
Well honestly.. I quite liked how it turned out because SO mentioned I looked “different” and “younger” (only with a lot of prompting from me).
What I used:
Base: Revlon Photoready, Amazing Cosmetics Concealer, MAC MSF Natural – Light Medium
Cheeks: Muji Swirly Blush (no shade name but this is the peach one)
Eyes: Lunasol Summer Gradation Pink Palette (all shades), Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner – Black/Brown, Maybelline Turbo Boost Volum’ Express Mascara in Black
Lips: YSL Rouge Pur #142
I think the key to doing this look well is to go easy on the eyeliner and make sure that it is elongated in a “downward” direction (instead of my usual winged liner). Apparently this gives a “puppy-eyed” look that seems to be very appealing. I also dusted some glittery shadow (top right hand corner of Lunasol palette) on the lower lash line just under my pupil and nowhere else. According to Kevin 老师, that is supposed to give a more wide-eyed look and makes your eyes more 水嫩, whatever that is supposed to mean. All in all, this is a very simple look and I really enjoyed doing it. I am not a “cutesy” person by nature but this is a look that I’d wear a lot in the future.
On a sidenote, I’m very impressed with the Revlon Photoready Liquid Foundation. I will be doing a separate review (hopefully when time is on my side) to share my thoughts with all of you.
