#TUTORIAL: GREEN X PINK SUMMER DAILY MAKEUP

Hey lovelies! How about a cool dose of green and pink right in the middle of August? Let’s create some innocent edginess to combat the summer heat. This look is modified from a Chinese fashion magazine and is suitable for daily wear. All you essentially need is a light green eyeshadow, cool-toned pink lipstick, and pastel pink blush.

Well, let’s hurry up and get into the tutorial!

ooooo ahhhhhh

Base:

After applying a brightening BB cream or foundation and defining your brows, contour lightly with a cool-toned shade, then pick up a pastel, cool-toned pink blush. Sweep the blush over your cheekbones at a slight angle.

Eyes:

Now, this is the most crucial part of the look, and also the easiest to…well, mess up. Over applying pastel colors, especially on Asian skin, can give a bit of garish clown-like effect. If your green eyeshadow is pigmented, go easy on the product. After applying a cream colored base to brighten up the eye area, try to draw a wing with your eyeshadow, then apply the shadow all over your lower eyelid. After doing so, give depth to your eyes by adding a black eyeshadow on the outer corner of the eyes, and applying eyeliner. Be careful – for this youthful look, it is best to keep the black to a minimum or it can make you look older than you want.

Lips:

I always go for tints in the summer. I have fallen in love with Etude House’s Berry Delicious Color in Liquid Lip Tint in the color Kiwi. Ah! It’s purple-green! Don’t worry, I’m not that bold. The purple-green color will turn into a blue-based light pink tint upon contact on the skin.

Voila! Your cool, edgy, cute summer look is complete.

Time to beat the heat – and if you want to go the extra mile/copy off the magazine’s inspired look, add a sexy pink heart right below your eye.
