Spring Look.....Pink N Ink......

Pink is the fresh start of Spring and Summer and I love to pair it with bronzers et al. I also love nuances of Pinks and this look is all about getting the right pink without going over the top. I must also tell you the "Rose" is a brown version of pink or a dusky pink and looks even more flattering (this would be the next look). This version of Pink is based on nuances or hints of pinks in your makeup and gels really well with my ideas of iridescence. The funny thing is I got inspired by a pink colored ball point pen that was in my drawer and thought why not do this look for spring-summer.
Who should sport this look?
Anyone with "Perfect skin". This perfect skin is the one you may be blessed with or you may have to create one where comes in a lot of correction. Anyways lets begin. 
  • Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector Rs.1450
  • Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF 15 for Rs.1600
  • MAC MoistureCover concealer Rs.1000
  • MAC Prep + Prime Translucent Loose Powder Rs.1350
  • Clinique Quick Blush in Pronto Pink Rs.1785
  • Clinique Blushing Blush in Pink Love Rs.1550
  • MAC BLush in Gana LE Rs.1050

Use illuminating complexion perfector for a perfect glowing complexion. This  hither thither iridescent particles create a wonderfully glowing base. Use foundation only where necessary to even out the skin tone. Dot and dab concealer in the inner corners and wherever your skin needs a lift. Keep it sheer and natural. Seal with a colorless translucent powder for the luminosity of your makeup to see through. Lightly dust and blend the creamy Quickblush in Pronto Pink on the cheeks by buffing action of the in-built brush. Softly layer Pink Love which is an iridescent glowing pink on the cheek apples and use Gana (the famous highlighting blush from Mickey Contractor for MAC collection) as a highlighter.EYES

  • MAC Paint Pot in Vintage Selection Rs.1000
  • MAC single eyeshadows in Sushi Flower and Stars N Rockets Rs.900 each
  • Clinique  Quickliner for eyes in NAVY Rs.990
  • NYX Cosmetics Studio Liner in Extreme Blue
  • MAC False Lashes Mascara Rs.1200

    The eye makeup is simply delightful and bright with sorbet and popsicle colors, of course in few numbers.

    Apply Vintage Selection Paint pot which is a dirty peach with silver shimmer over the entire lid as an eyebase blending it towards the brow bone so that nuances of silver shimmer remain. Trace the lids and inner rims with NAVY eye pencil and smudge with a soft brush. Apply Sushi Flower eyeshadow in the crease and Stars N Rockets on the lid blending it with Sushi flower in the crease. Apply Electric Blue liner closest to the lash line for hint of sparkle or go as bold as you want. Apply generous amounts of MAC False lashes mascara for a vivid gaze.


    Keep the lips soft and shiny with Clarins Joli Rouge in Parisian Pink.
