Anyway! My birthday fell on a Thursday so really, I had no other birthday outfit other than my uniform, but I did try something new with my perpetually-neutral eye makeup.
The key points in this look are the following: peachy pink flush on the cheeks, the soft brows, and the soft smokey eye that makes your eyes look deep-set.
|Excuse my brows. Haha.|
- Pat a shimmery nude eyeshadow on the middle 1/ 3 of the eye. Build the color on the lower segment of the eyelid and go lighter as you go past the crease (the red line as depicted in tbe diagram).
- Pat a taupe/cool brown eyeshadow on the inner third and outer third of the lid. Build the color on the lower segment of the lid and go lighter when you're past the crease.
- Using a pencil brush, line a frosty cream eyeshadow on the middle third segment of the lower lashline for a bright-eyed effect.
- Tightline the upper lash line with a black eyeliner.
- Line the outer 1/3 segment with the black eyeliner, winging it at the end.
So after all that, it should look like this:
For the cheeks, use a (mostly) matte powder pink blush starting from the cheekbones, then blend as you go on inwards. And then I used a shimmery peach color (mine was actually an eyeshadow) and brushed it on the apples of the cheeks to highlight their puffiness. :))
I neutralized the color of my lips first with a concealer to make my lip color pop. I chose a coral shade to match my peachy cheeks. :)
So there! Another way to use your neutral eyeshadows! This daytime look makes the eyes bigger and brighter, and the cheeks really showed my feminine side. Hihihi.
