Tutorial Tuesday: Geranium Makeup Tutorial
So, of course, I need to do a look with some great pink colors.Â Heck, the vast majority of my clothes are pink.Â I might as well match.
Today, Iâ€™m going to show you a super cute pink look that sort of reminds me of geranium flowers.Â Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™ve called it Geranium. Creative, no?
You may notice that the pictures in this tutorial are better than previous ones.Â Yeah, Iâ€™m getting the hang of this.
So read on for the Geranium makeup tutorial.
Yeah, Iâ€™m not wearing any makeup.Â If I look better than normal, itâ€™s because I just re-tweezed my eyebrows.Â Nice!
Before I show you this makeup tutorial, you should do all of the steps you normally have in your routine.Â This means any lotion, foundation, powder, whatever.Â You can refer to a previous article for help: Priming the Canvas: Getting Your Face Ready for Makeup.
Itâ€™s makeup time.
Of course, you need products, right? You canâ€™t put on makeup with your mind.
Hereâ€™s everything I used to get this look:
- Cupcake Cult Eye Primer
- MAC Eye Shadow in Post Haste
- Luzier Eye Shadow in Burgundy Ice
- Elite Pro Cosmetics 88 Eye Shadow Pallet
- N.Y.C. Liquid Eyeliner in Jet Black
- Maybelline the Colossal Volumâ€™ Express Mascara in Glam Black
- Claireâ€™s Lip Gloss
Thatâ€™s it!Â And away we go.
First, weâ€™re going to use Post Haste, a MAC Eye Shadow.Â This is a darkish, slightly muted pink.Â I put this on the outside corner (where itâ€™s darkest) and into the crease.
Then I added the Luzier Eye Shadow, Burgundy Ice.Â This is a shimmery mixture of pink and yellow.Â Blend this over the entire lid and just above the crease.
Since I felt that it still didnâ€™t have enough pink, I used a bright â€˜hot pinkâ€™ from my Elite Pro Cosmetics 88 Eye Shadow Pallet.Â I used just a little bit over the first pink color, and onto more of the lid as well.Â See the picture!
Then, I used a very light beige, also from the Elite pallet.Â This time, I used it on the inside corner of the eye (blending out about one centimeter).Â Then I used it under the arch of the brow to create a highlight.
Thatâ€™s all for eye shadow in this makeup tutorial.Â 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.Â I used this just on the top lid.
And yes, I screwed it up a bit.Â Liquid eyeliner is hard!
I used Maybelline the Colossal Volumâ€™ Express Mascara in Glam Black on the top and bottom lashes.Â Man, it sure does make them look long!
Last, but not least, lips.Â I didnâ€™t want to go too overboard today, so I just added some shimmery pink lip gloss from Claireâ€™s.
Done!Â Check out the ending pictures:
Nice, huh?Â I loved doing the Geranium makeup tutorial.Â Pinks seem to look good on me.Â And, news flash, pinks look good on a lot of people.
What did you think?Â Not too bad, huh?
