Look In Pink Glow

Perhaps the title of this look should have been named Neon Pink instead of Pink Glow – well, I usually name my looks after the eyeshadow palettes/colours or lip colours so..

I don’t think I have done any look that’s this pink before and I would also like to create a look that compliments my bright pink dress. In this set of pictures, I don’t have any nail colour on but if I were to wear one, it would be a deep, dark shade – maybe a matte black. I will probably skip wearing anything bright and definitely not bright pink. Maybe a beige nude would be nice too.

I hope you like this simple and chic look – goes well with a little black dress too.

Face
I kept my face simple with a touch of radiance and I think the set of Diorskin NUDE helped achieve just that. Nothing too dewy or matte but fresh and healthy looking skin is perfect.

Eyes
A sheer wash of iridescent pink eyeshadows will go well with this look – for this, I have chosen to use the new Dior 3 Couleurs Glow in 851 Pink Glow. Add a touch of elegance with black winged eyeliner.

  • Prep lids with a primer.
  • Apply highlighter shade all over lids and under brow bones.
  • Apply pink eyeshadow all over lids.
  • Use a black eyeliner to line upper lash line, use liner shade from the palette to soften edges.
  • Apply black eyeliner to outer 2/3 of lower lash line and soften edges with liner shade.
  • Apply a shimmery beige/champagne eyeliner along inner 1/3 of lower lash line to brighten up the eyes.
  • Apply mascara and false eyelashes if needed.

Cheeks
I went for a pair of soft, glowy cheeks – nothing too pink. To achieve glowy cheeks, I went for gel blush, cream blush will do the job too. Instead of using a silver/champagne highlighter, I have chosen a warmer, golden highlighter to compliment the bronzer – this will add warmth to the skin without looking overly too pink.

  • After setting foundation with loose powder, use finger to pick up product and gently pat of cheeks.
  • Apply bronzer to sculpt cheek bones and warm up the complexion.
  • Apply golden bronzer to the high point of cheek bones.

Lips
Again, it’s important to keep lips well hydrated for bold lips so I applied a layer of lip balm prior to starting my foundation routine.

  • Apply lip balm/essence to moisturize lips.
  • Line and shape lips with lip pencil – I have chosen Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip in 16C, a neon pink shade.
  • Fill lips in with the same lip pencil – if you have a neon pink lipstick, use the lipstick instead.
  • Apply gloss all over lips for that hi-shine finish.

Thank you for looking.

  1. Not your best look. The shade of lipstick is too bright and too blue based for your complexion ( or probably anybody else’s). The rest of the look doesn’t show you off to your best ability as it is too pale and blah. You usually do your eyes in a way that shows them off much better. I don’t mean to be rude. I like it when my friends give me the honest truth of their opinion. How else can I tell if the look is working for me or not if they aren’t being honest? I hope I haven’t offended you. I apologize if I have.

    • Hi Mimi,

      Thank you for commenting and being honest again..
      I value every comment on this blog and it’s always nice to share likes and dislikes..
      But I hope you understand, part of being a beauty blogger is exploring new products, new colours and new styles..
      Occasionally, I venture out of my own comfort zone and push limits..

      • You’re right Joey. I forget that your job is to try new and different things. You are such a beautiful woman that I love to see you at your most gorgeous, which is almost always! I’ll try to “lighten up.”

        • Hi Mimi,
          No worries, different people have different tastes and style =)
          All I am trying to do is help anyone who wishes to explore colours to “just go for it”..
          End of the day, all we need is a makeup remover xx
          Happy weekend!!

  2. I love this look – the lippy is the “I’m gorgeous” kinda lippy :P I’m still lusting for that khaki gold Dior 3 Couleurs …
