Soft and glowy pink makeup is always in style and I’m here to share the makeup look that I wore nearly every day while in college. It is a lovely compromise between natural and glamorous, combines both high end and drugstore products, and lasts all day long. It is perfect as we transition from spring to summer and the best part is that it takes only twenty minutes to complete. Feel free to watch my two minute tutorial below or my Instagram TV video here.
After completing my skin care routine, I begin my makeup look by patting three small drops of my recently purchased Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir 24k Gold Infused Beauty Oil on my face to hydrate and prime my skin. This added dewiness combines beautifully with the Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation, which I blend out with a damp beauty sponge for a solid medium coverage and a satin finish. To brighten my under eyes, I use my Tarte Creaseless Under Eye Concealer — a product that I find works best when blended out with my ring finger. I set my face with a very light layer of the BareMinerals Original Foundation, and then when all of the rest of my makeup is done, I will spritz myself with my Heritage Store Rosewater & Glycerin Spray to eliminate any powdery finish and make everything more glowy.
To sculpt out my cheek bones, temples, and jaw line I have been mixing my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer, which is lighter with more neural undertones, with my Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer, which is deeper with more warm undertones, for the ideal shade. For blush I’ve been combining the two middle shades in my beloved NARS Exposed Cheek Palette for a pink sheen, and I absolutely love the way it looks. The Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in ‘Precious Petals’ has been my go-to lately for a soft pinky glow.
When I’m busy with school, I dedicate the majority of my time to my skin and then just do a simple eye look, so after filling in my brows with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo, I usually reach for the Maybelline The City Kits All-in-One Eye & Cheek Palette in ‘Pink Edge’. I received this from a friend as a birthday gift and although it is quite powdery and does not last as long I want it to, the shaded blend well and create a pretty wash of color for an everyday look. I always use the large blush shade on the far left as my transition shade before combining the purpley-taupes for my outer v shade. The two shimmery pinky champagnes in the top row work well all over the lid, too. I then apply several coats of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara for long, separated lashes.
For my lips I add some definition and lasting power with the Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner in ‘Dusty Rose’ before applying the amazing NARS Velvet Lip Glide in ‘Swing’ — my signature rosy nude shade. This combo is hydrating and always receives compliments.
Thanks so much for reading and I’d love to hear how you are doing over on my socials.
