用粉红眼影打造无辜大眼妆

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.

trying for the innocent, save-the-damsel-in-distress look

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.

  1. You already have naturally innocent looking eyes, so you look great with any pastel shades including pink. If it was on me I would look like having an eye allergy 😛

  2. You have to tell me what kind of lashes do you use, they look so good on you. I have to agree with the previous commenter, you have lovely eyes and I think all kinds of eye makeup look good on you.

    • Hey Jacqueline, I used these falsies from Taiwan, they do not have a number on them but the packaging is a white box with blue words on it which you should be able to find in Bugis or FEP. The design looks like this:

      • Thanks for the pictures! They look so nice. I will look for these when I go to Bugis. Are the bands flexible? Im still not good at applying false lashes, the thicker bands always give me trouble.

      • You are welcome 🙂

        The bands are semi-flexible, not super hard (like Model 21 lashes) but not very soft like those Princess series lashes from Taiwan. The semi-hard band makes it easier to mould to the shape of your eyes if that makes sense. With practice, it shouldn’t be a problem! 😀
