#FOTD: Summer Dusty Rose Look

OK, OK, I know the dusty rose look is so fall 2015 (at least according to Korean beauty gurus), but it’s been a bit chilly and rainy over here in Nanjing…which is perfect for this everyday makeup. Paired with a bright gradient lip, rosy-brown eyeshadow turns this look into something both elegant and lively. Hope everyone enjoys and don’t forget to follow!


Main Products Used:

Kat Von D Shade & Light Palette

Nature Republic Flower Eye Shadow (in PK106 I believe)

3CE Lip Marker in Crimson Pink

K-Palette One Day Magic Liquid Liner in Black


The main color scheme for the eyes and face (contouring) is warm brown, cool brown, and a pop of rose.


introducing our color scheme

The key points for achieving this FOTD would be to focus on light contouring below the cheekbones and on the nose bridge, as well as creating a small wing with eyeliner to add an edge to an otherwise soft, muted color palette. To keep things elegant, I went with straight Korean-style brows with my NYX micro-brow pencil. The gradient lip adds a nice, but not overwhelming, pop of life.

Voila! Here is the finished look – the bright outdoor lighting washed out the eyeshadow a little. Meh…

See you guys soon~~
