How to pull off a pink eye makeup look
I used to avoid pink eyeshadow like the plague, in fear it would leave me looking like I had pink-eye. Adding a pop of pink to the lid is so on trend for this season. Surprisingly, if applied correctly, pinks and peaches are quite versatile shades for the eyes. It’s a look that’s been taking over the red carpet, I actually saw a ton of celebrities rocking this look when I was at the Junos over the weekend. Whether you decided to show off your flawless skin with a bold dusty rose eye look and lipstick shade to match or keep it more subtle with a soft, shimmery pink shadow and neutral lip, pink is making a huge statement this spring.
Radiant Cushion Foundation
Cushion foundations don’t get enough love on the internet. It’s the perfect formula when you’re looking for an extremely effortless, nourishing and flawless effect. Clé de Peau Radiant Cushion Foundation is a lightweight, hydrating, sheer-to-medium coverage foundation that creates a natural dewy finish on the skin with ease. It instantly helps to even out skin tone, but its buildable formula allows you to hide and conceal minor redness and blemishes. It has almost a whipped consistency that feels lighter than air once applied to the skin. Simply press the sponge into the cushion to release the liquid foundation and then gently tap the sponge with the foundation onto your skin. It wears beautifully though the entire day, never clinging to dry patches or accentuating fine lines. It also doesn’t sink into pores or look caky, just an incredible fresh and glowing complexion all day long. It retails for $126.
Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 25
The trick to creating a soft, romantic look, that doesn’t look unnatural, is to only apply concealer where it is needed. I find a stick concealer, like Clé de Peau Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 25 easier to control and apply. Its twist-up stick design features a buttery-smooth formula that provides a thin, yet extremely buildable coverage. It helps to achieve a flawless finish, while minimizes the look of blemishes, redness and dark circles. Its matte finish doesn’t crease or budge throughout the entire day, providing full-coverage for upwards of 12+ hours. It conceals all imperfections for a seamless finish that doesn’t look mask-like. It retails for $98.
Radiant Corrector for Eyes
The second most important step after foundation and concealer is hiding those pesky under-eye pigmentation and dark circles. Sure, you could use the same concealer as the rest of your face, but if these minor skin issues leave you looking dull and tired, you might want something a little more brightening. Clé de Peau Radiant Corrector for Eyes is designed specifically for your delicate under-eye area and is an illuminating and color-correcting pen in one. It magically erases dark circles and puffiness, while smoothing and hydrating the skin. Unlike a thick and full-coverage concealer that tend to look too heavy and cakey on the skin, this manages to conceal all problem areas while still looking fresh and youthful. It almost seems to melt into the skin for a completely seamless and flawless application process. It conceals minor redness, counteracts blue veins under the eyes and helps depuff. It retails for $91.
Ombres Couleurs Duo Eye Color
Of course, pink eye makeup can be challenging. It can look cartoonish if the shade is too bright or sickly if applied incorrectly. Even professional makeup artist struggle with it, but the key is to keep it looking fresh, fun and playful. Look for a shade that’s slightly softer and not as pigmented to achieve that romantic and wearable effect. Clé de Peau Ombres Couleurs Duo Eye Color Duo in shade Calm Pink is the perfect duo for creating a captivating, dazzling pink eye look.
