Pink Shimmer & Purple: A Makeup Tutorial

So I'm super bad with naming my looks. Anyways, I love the color combination of Pink and Purple and thought I would use the "Sandwich" technique that I learned from VintageorTacky. This technique is a different way to do a smokey eye. So, without futher to do let's get to this!

Products used on eyes:
  • Elf Eyelid Primer
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
  • 120 BH Cosmetics 4th Edition Palette (Purple, Shimmer Pink)
  • JLB Eyeliner Pencil in Black
  • Color Workshop Mascara
Products used for the face:
  • Clean and Clear Moisturizer
  • Hard Candy Perfecting Primer
  • Elf Tinted Moisturizer
  • Rimmel London Concealer
  • Covergirl TruBlend Minerals
  • Color Workshop Bronzer and Blush
Brushes Used:
  • Elf  Eyeshadow brush 
  • Color Workshop Stippling Brush
  • Mini Kabuki Brush
  • Elf Bronzing Brush
  • Color Workshop Blush Brush
  • L.A. Colors Lipstick in Hint
Get the look:
  • Before you apply your eye makeup apply a face primer to your face.
  • Apply an eyeshadow primer or if you don't have one apply a concealer and go over it with a bit of powder, in this case I've used the concealer and powder.
  • Taking an eyeshadow brush begin to apply a purple eyeshadow in the inner and outer corner leaving space in the middle.
  • Using the same brush place a light pink in the middle I went over it with another pink eyeshadow that had more shimmer in it.
  • Apply a highlight,line your eyes and add mascara.
  • Using a stippling brush apply your foundation to your face.Blend it in and remember to put some on your neck.
  • If you have under eye circles apply a concealer over them.
  • Next apply a powder to set in your foundation & concealer. For this I used a mini kabuki brush to apply it.
  • Taking a contour brush and a bronzing begin to contour your face, place it at the hollows of your cheek, temples, both sides of your nose (optional) and along your jawline. This of course if optional and it will make your face appear slimmer. I used the Color Workshop one.
  • Next I just applied a peach blush with a little bit of pink over it.
  • For the lips I applied a medium pink with shimmer in it.
