Love is in the air leading up to Valentine's Day and nothing is prettier than a soft pink Make Up look. With glowing skin and soft blush, this is perfect for those who want to achieve a more natural and fresh faced look. We have paired up with Estée Lauder to give you the step by step so you can make yourself Valentine's beautiful.
Pretty Pink Make Up Tutorial
Add glow with an illuminating primer.
Not only does a primer help your Make Up stay in place all night, it can also add radiance and brightness to your skin. Enriched with Vitamin E, Rice Bran Extract and Shea Butter, the Estée Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer will also nourish and protect your skin while giving you a beautiful finish. Apply it with a foundation brush, all over your face and down the neck.
Perfect your base.
We all know that the 'No Make Up Make Up' always needs a really great foundation. The Double Wear Light covers up signs of imperfections and blemishes without masking your skin. Apply with the same foundation brush as you used to apply the primer. This will help thin out the foundation and give you a light, even finish.
Add a pop of colour to the cheeks.
For the prettiest of looks, add a natural flush to the cheeks. We love that the Pure Colour Blush in Pink Ingenue has a hint of shimmer to accentuate your cheekbones and highlight. Buff down the cheekbones to the apple of the cheek, starting lightly and building up the colour as needed.
Go soft and smokey on the eyes.
Applying some warm toned, softly shimmering Eye Shadow will keep your makeup fresh-faced and glowing whilst accentuating your eyes. The Pure Colour Intense Eye Shadow Palette in Beach Metals is perfect. Start by applying the lightest of the three shades all over your lid, and then apply the middle colour to the outer corners of both eyes and blend. Lastly, apply the darkest shade as an eyeliner on the lash line to gently define your eyes. Finish with the Sumptuous Extreme Mascara in Black for beautifully long and voluminous lashes.
Go for a natural pink Lip Colour.
This is the final finishing touch for the whole look. We love a natural pink lip for lips that look full and gorgeous. Start by applying the Automatic Lip Pencil Duo in 'Fig' which has a creamy pencil on one end and a lip brush on the other for your lipstick. Line the lips and fill with Lip pencil before applying Pure Color Envy Sculpting Shine Lipstick in 'Suggestive' for a hint of colour and shine to your lips.
