how-to: monochromatic pink using shu uemura blossom dream collection

the spring 2013 shu uemura blossom dream collection features three beautiful matte, pastel eyeshadow palettes. i used the pink palette to create this soft, monochromatic pink look, paired with the rainbow feather s false lashes.


Shu-Spring-182-2A

to create this look:

FACE:
  • apply uv brightening mousse using pentagon sponge to brighten and even out skin tone
  • brush 18 to apply FA illuminating moisture foundation in fair beige
  • cover crayon concealor under eyes, around nose and corners of mouth. blend with synthetic brush 10
  • set with face powder matte in colorless using brush 18R
  • load up natural brush 10 with light pink shade and press all over lids all the way up to brow and on lower lid
  • brush 11 and light pink shade to soften edges and extend slightly onto tempes
  • brush 10 and apply dark pink shade to crease; soften with brush 11
  • brush 5R to apply dark pink shade along outer lower lid
  • pearly white drawing pencil to lower water line and slightly to inner corners of eyes
  • curl lashes
  • apply natural mascara in brown
  • apply rainbow feather S lashes
CHEEKS:
  • brush 20 to apply P soft pink 324 to apples of cheeks blending upwards towards temples
  • brush 15 to apply P light yellow 020 to cheekbones and to bridge of nose
LIPS:
  • lipbrush to apply rouge unlimited matte in bright pink
  • dab bright pink shadow over top

remember, the trick to wearing pink eyeshadow is to line the eyes softly with brown shadows or to add some brown shadow to the crease. this helps to avoid having eyes look irritated. have fun experimenting!
