Fight Like A Girl: A Makeup Tutorial

 Hello my lovely angels today I am doing a look that is inspired by Breast Cancer Awareness so you can expect to see a lot of pink. This month is truly important to me as I had lost my grandma to breast cancer when I was 14. Ever since then I had helped spread the word about how important monthly self examinations are and getting your mammograms done. If you need more information about breast cancer and steps to take if you have it check out this website. Also I would like to dedicate this post to people who are fighting cancer or to people who have lost their lives to this horrible disease.

Get The Look:
  • Apply your face primer before you start to apply your eye-shadow primer that way it would have sunken into your skin and your will be ready for you to apply your foundation. 
  • Apply an eyeshadow primer or if you don't have one apply a concealer and go over it with a bit of powder.
  • I first applied a white base to help make the colors pop a bit more.
  • So to start off with the eyeshadow I applied a white eyeshadow on 1/3 the lid.
  • I then applied a light pink eyeshadow in the middle of the lid. I used to different light pinks.
  • I then applied a hot pink shadow in the outer corner working it into the crease. I used to different hot pinks.
  • Now taking a fluffy brush blend the colors together.
  • Now apply a highlight under the brows. I used a flesh tone eyeshadow.
  • I lined my upper lid with a black liquid liner, tight lined using a black eyeliner pencil.
  • I applied a coat of my favorite mascaras.
  • Using a stippling brush I applied my tinted moisturizer. Blend it in and remember to put some on your neck and conceal any imperfections.
  • Taking a contour brush and  bronzing powder 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.
  • Now using your blush brush begin to apply a pink blush to the apples of your cheeks. 
  • For the lips I filled them in with a light pink lip liner and I applied a light pink lipstick.
