Meet my new favourite eye look.
Now, I know I only did a make up routine the other week however that kicked me back into loving a full face of make up. So I decided to think outside the box and go for a colour I wouldn’t normally put on my eyes, pink, and now I can’t stop wearing it!

You know the drill base wise, especially if you’ve read my previous post, so I won’t go on about that. However scroll down to see how I achieved this beautiful pink eye look.
I think people shy away from putting pink on their eyes as they are worried it’s going to make them look sore and well weird, however if you start with a brown base this stops that from happening. I started as with most eye looks Illamasqua Hollow all over the lid, it not only helps colour wise but also is a great lid primer. In the crease and heavily blended out I put Illamasqua Ditzy. It’s quite in your face as a colour so definitley blend it out so you don’t look like you have a raw eye.
To deepen the crease I took Forgivness from the Illamasqua Complement Pallete and just added it to the outer corner crease. Its a dark chocolate plum colour so helps tone down the pink. Then I swiped Buon Fresco from the ABH Modern Renaissance Palette all over the lid before highlighting my inner corner with Primavera from the same palette.As with nearly every eye look I took Illamsqua Stealth under my brow bone, added a swipe of liquid liner and lashings of mascara. Before finishing the whole look with a combination of a matte lipstick layered with a glittery gloss.
