2. Caitlyn: Pastel Pink Makeup
My eyes are my favorite feature, so when there’s an opportunity to exaggerate them, I run with it. One of the best ways to do so, in my opinion, is to put together a dramatic eye makeup look that speaks to the season — in this case, spring. When a family member tied the knot recently, I put together a bold, pink eyeshadow look with natural-looking face makeup.
I started by priming my entire face with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Lock Primer. Then, I grabbed the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Pocket Palette Eyeshadow in Avenue Des Roses and two makeup brushes — an angled precision eyeshadow brush and a medium-sized fluffy one.
I dipped the angled brush into the dark brown shade and dragged the shadow along my lash line from my inner corner to my outer corner in lieu of eyeliner. I repeated this on both sides. Then, I dipped the fluffy brush into the matte pink eyeshadow shade and applied it to my eyelids. Once I blended everything out, I took the shimmery pink eyeshadow and applied it to the center of my eyelids to create a halo-like finish before topping everything off with the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Washable Mascara in Blackest Black.
To achieve a natural, skin-like complexion, I placed a few drops of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Nude Hyaluronic Tinted Serum into my palms and rubbed them together (this warms up the formula). Then, I gently pressed it onto my face for a lightweight veil of coverage. I took a makeup sponge to buff out the serum for an airbrushed finish. Despite having oily skin, I was surprised at how well this sheer, glowy formula lasted throughout the event and didn’t slip or slide off of my skin.
To tie the whole pastel look together and give it a monochrome finish, I swiped the L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Balm in Gloss in Feathery Fleur onto my lips.
