How to wear pink

I wanted to show you some new goodies I had from Accessorize, but it's kinda boring to ramble about it without any actual meaning to the topic, don't you think? Hence I thought I'll show you how to wear pink eye shadow using one of the baked duos from their range.

I have two eye shadow duo's from their range, both of them I am loving as of now. However, I am liking the pink eye shadow duo much much more. Now I did not expect that, seeing how light and frosty it looks in the pan. But the credit of course goes to Accessorize for its superb formulation.

Presenting, Rendezvous and High Maintenance.

High Maintenance is a neutral combination that every girl should possess in her make-up kit. The gorgeous champagne colour can be used as a light wash of colour during the day and the smokey taupe could be added in the outer corners for some definition to the eyes. A pop of this on the lower lash line looks great too!

Rendezvous contains a frosty peach and a pink, both pretty light and pastel shades. I wish they would look a bit different though as you can't quite notice the difference between them once applied.

Having said that, they have good colour pay off but not one that screams look-I-am-wearing-eye shadow! They have this 3-d sheen to them which makes them subtle yet noticeable at the same time. They somehow have the ability to give the eyes some dimension.

Hence, this is my favourite duo whenever I want to wear something pink and girly on the eyes. Because it is slightly frosty, it avoids the eye area from looking flat and unreal. This is something you want to avoid when you opt to wear pastels. 

I like to wear it with a clean crisp black liner and a tonne of mascara. 

If you find that too plain Jane, then add some taupe-y colour in the socket to give some dimension to the eyes. A pop of a sparkly neutral colour on the lower lash line looks absolutely flattering with pinks. I am using Kryolans Glitter Cream in Bronze here but you can use any glitter eyeliner for that pop of colour. 

Tips for wearing pink: 
- Use a frosty eye shadow
- Keep it simple, neat and crisp!
- Strong brows will provide a good frame
- Add tonnes of Mascara
- A pop of colour on the lash line won't hurt

How do you wear pink? Have you tried any eye shadows from Accessorize?

p.s. The baked duo in Rendezvous is currently for £2 on Accessorize website. It's a steal for that price!

These are very pretty and love how you used the brown to underline. I have a thing for pink and brown and this looks lovely.

Pink Eyeshadow does not suit me. But it looks way better on you!

I've not tried any of their eyeshadows, although I'm looking to get Champagne, a really nice highlighting colour.

Their lipsticks are pretty amazing though. My fave is Coral Crush xx

Sheefa F said...

@Cami - I get so excited whenever I see a comment from you! lol. Big fan of your youtube channel :D and thanks a tonne for the compliment :)

@DesignerSpray - Coral Crush is on my list now :) I know their baked blushers are so tempting!

Cami said...

Aw thank you lady - but there's no need to get excited, though to be fair I get excited whenever I get blog comments as they're always lovelier than YT comments :)
