Parisian Pink

4 May

I wanted to do a pink look that wasn’t too “bubblegum.” This is a more sophisticated pink look which could be more work-safe and not necessarily spring or summer-inspired. Pairing pops of color like pink with neutrals like gray or taupe can give just the right amount of color against a subdued background.

Brushes you’ll need:

– MAC #’s 214 (short shader brush), 222 (tapered blending brush), 217 (blending brush), 242 (shader brush), and 116 (blush brush)

Products you’ll need:

– MAC Eyeshadows in Smut, Carbon, Hush, Girlie, Silver Ring, and Sushi Flower
– MAC Powder Blushes in Dame
MAC Lipsticks in Lightly Ripe and 40’s Pink
– MAC Technakohl in Graphblack

Supplemental: – A brow-filling productMascara


[* Highlight the inner corner and inner third of the eye with Hush (242).
Highlight the brow bone with a mixture of Hush (242).
[* Apply Silver Ring to the middle of the eyelid (242).

Apply Girlie to the outer third of the eye and crease (217).
[* Color in the crease ever so slightly with Sushi Flower (217).
[* Darken the outer V with Smut (222).

[* Darken further with Carbon (222).
[* Line the upper lash line with Graphblack.


[* Apply Dame at an angle along the outside of the cheekbone (116).


[* Apply Lightly Ripe, blot, apply 40’s Pink, and blot again.

Additional finishing steps: [Fill in eyebrows using MAC’s #208 Angled Brow brush and MAC Eyeshadow in Charcoal Brown], [Tame unruly brows using MAC Brow Finisher in Clear], and [Darken lashes using MAC’s Plushlash mascara in Plushblack].
