January 2011 Series: 10th

In this pink & brown look, the pink hardly shows up on me like most pinks unless it's a hot pink. Maybe I need to start applying pinks over a white base? Moving on to the look...

I started off with a neutral base and then applied a light pink shade all over the lid. Then I applied a cranberry shade on the outer third of the lid & lightly in the outer V & blended it in the crease. Next, a matte brown was used to deepen the crease & blend out the pink & cranberry, bringing the brown colour upward till the browbone. The brown was blended in with a shimmery white highlight. The shimmery white was used in the tearduct as well. I went back & lightly applied the cranberry shade over the brown & blended it in with the brown. This toned down the brown & brought out more of the cranberry shade. The cranberry shade was applied to the lower lashline as well & blended in with the tearduct colour. Black eyeliner was used to tightline, line the waterline, & line the upper lashline. The look was completed by applying black mascara.

I really need to start taking pics in the morning so that the true colour shows up!
