A sophisticated bold pink makeup look!

 February 7th, 2016 
Hello readers, today I am doing a makeup look that was inspired by a beautiful lipstick that I bought a couple of months ago. I found that lipstick at a Laura Mercier's counter and fall in love with it.
Although I was not there to buy a lipstick I decided to get it because I loved the color but also the texture as it is long lasting and very moisturizing at the same time. Hence it is perfect for my very dry lips.

 For my skin I applied a matifying and pore refining primer followed by a long lasting foundation which I applied with my fingers . I also used this fondation on my lids to even out this area which is naturally darker than my skin tone.

-First, I applied a light moisturizing under eye concealer to conceal the light darkness I have in this area. 
-My second step was to apply a dark brown eye shadow all over the lids, including the brow bone area. To give a smokey look I traced a line of my black waterproof eyeliner close to my upper lashes and then smudged that line with a cotton tip. Along the lower lashes I put some dots of the same black eyeliner. I draw dots instead of a strong black line so the final result would look soft.
-I then applied 2 coats of a long lasting black mascara.
-To finish up the eye look I lightly applied a brown tinted eyebrow gel on my eyebrows.

I am already using a very bright lipstick so I decided to use a natural color for my blush. I chose a brick color which looks very natural on my skin. I applied the blush in a C shape  going from the cheeks to the temples.


Last but not least I applied a bright deep pink lipstick directly from the bullet.

The association of the bold pink color and the natural but deep dark  brown color on the lids gives a very sophisticated look I think; perfect for all evening events.
I am in love with this look. What do you think ?
