MyMy Makeup Looks | Soft Glow & Hot Pink

I’ve always been a makeup enthusiast.  I remember the first time I took interest in my mother’s makeup was when I was eight or nine years old.  Back then, even though nobody actually taught me how it’s done, I somehow kinda already knew that I was supposed to blend the different colors together until I liked what I saw.  Of course, I always ended up making more of a mess than a masterpiece but at such a young age, I already figured that blending is the key to achieving beautiful makeup looks.  Those summer painting workshops that I took also helped to a large degree since it taught me practically the same techniques that I now use when applying makeup.  But no, you don’t have to be into fine arts before you can master makeup artistry.  If you truly love it, then the key is to never stop learning and to practice, practice, practice!

Only recently though that I thought of documenting my trials and errors while experimenting with different makeup looks.  After getting my Samsung Galaxy Camera, I was even more motivated to take photos of my creation so I can share them with you, guys.  Again, I am not a professional makeup artist nor do I claim to be a makeup guru.  I’m just someone who loves makeup and who seeks to improve her skills so that I don’t always have to rely on professional makeup artists when I go to parties and special events.  I also love being able to share with y’all everything that I know.

So here’s what I’ve done so far.  Enjoy the photos!  icon smile MyMy Makeup Looks | Soft Glow & Hot Pink

 

MyMy Makeup Looks

The first makeup look I’m showcasing here is what I call the “Soft Glow”, which is all about achieving a soft rosy glow, with only a light touch of shimmer on the high points of the face.  The colors that I picked mostly have a pink undertone.

The products I used for this look were:

Face

Eyes & Eyebrows

Cheeks

Contour

Highlights

Lips

The second makeup look is called “Hot Pink”, and basically, I just wanted to show you one way of wearing your favorite hot pink lip color.

Some women think that when you wear a bold lip color such as hot pink, you should downplay your eyes.  I don’t completely agree.  Hot pink is a very sexy/seductive color that the only way to pull it off is to match it with sexy eyes. The way to do it is to pick a neutral eyeshadow with a very soft shimmer and then add a pair of vavavoom!  false lashes. There ya go!

Note: Careful with applying your eyeliner.  You need to put on just enough to make your eyes pop.  Don’t overdo it.
