Tutorial Tuesday: Geranium Makeup Tutorial

Pink is my favorite color.  Can you tell?

So, of course, I need to do a look with some great pink colors.  Heck, the vast majority of my clothes are pink.  I might as well match.

Today, I’m going to show you a super cute pink look that sort of reminds me of geranium flowers.  That’s why I’ve called it Geranium. Creative, no?

You may notice that the pictures in this tutorial are better than previous ones.  Yeah, I’m getting the hang of this.

So read on for the Geranium makeup tutorial.

As always…

Yeah, I’m not wearing any makeup.  If I look better than normal, it’s because I just re-tweezed my eyebrows.  Nice!

Before I show you this makeup tutorial, you should do all of the steps you normally have in your routine.  This means any lotion, foundation, powder, whatever.  You can refer to a previous article for help: Priming the Canvas: Getting Your Face Ready for Makeup.

It’s makeup time.

Of course, you need products, right? You can’t put on makeup with your mind.

Here’s everything I used to get this look:

  1. Cupcake Cult Eye Primer
  2. MAC Eye Shadow in Post Haste
  3. Luzier Eye Shadow in Burgundy Ice
  4. Elite Pro Cosmetics 88 Eye Shadow Pallet
  5. N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner in Jet Black
  6. Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara in Glam Black
  7. Claire’s Lip Gloss

That’s it!  And away we go.

First, we’re going to use Post Haste, a MAC Eye Shadow.  This is a darkish, slightly muted pink.  I put this on the outside corner (where it’s darkest) and into the crease.

Then I added the Luzier Eye Shadow, Burgundy Ice.  This is a shimmery mixture of pink and yellow.  Blend this over the entire lid and just above the crease.

Since I felt that it still didn’t have enough pink, I used a bright ‘hot pink’ from my Elite Pro Cosmetics 88 Eye Shadow Pallet.  I used just a little bit over the first pink color, and onto more of the lid as well.  See the picture!

Then, I used a very light beige, also from the Elite pallet.  This time, I used it on the inside corner of the eye (blending out about one centimeter).  Then I used it under the arch of the brow to create a highlight.

That’s all for eye shadow in this makeup tutorial.  Super quick.

For eyeliner I used N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner because I wanted a look that stood out and that was a bit retro.  I used this just on the top lid.

And yes, I screwed it up a bit.  Liquid eyeliner is hard!

I used Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara in Glam Black on the top and bottom lashes.  Man, it sure does make them look long!

Last, but not least, lips.  I didn’t want to go too overboard today, so I just added some shimmery pink lip gloss from Claire’s.

Done!  Check out the ending pictures:

Nice, huh?  I loved doing the Geranium makeup tutorial.  Pinks seem to look good on me.  And, news flash, pinks look good on a lot of people.

What did you think?  Not too bad, huh?
