AMW Version: "Subtle Barbie Pink" Look

Humpy Wednesday!  Finally, my second look for the year!  That sounds pathetic! *laughs* Anyways, I promised a look inspired by My Favorite Frosted Pink Lipstick and many of you cannot sport "Smokey Eye" makeup especially during the daytime!  I wouldn't too!  So I've decided to play around with the lipstick and create a simpler look perfect for girls who loves the safer side...

Subtle Barbie Pink Eyes

I'm getting better with these diagrams right?
(Pat my back please, lol)

Before I go to step 1, I always fill in my brows with my favorite eyebrow pencil.  I am almost done with my Paul & Joe Eyebrow Pencil no. 4.  I primed my eyes with Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer.

Step 1:
Using a flat shader brush, in my case, it's the Leow Cornell 3/8 Maxine Mop brush , apply NYX  Dolly Pink with a patting motion on the crease area going a tiny bit above.

Step 2:
To create a depth to my small eyes, I've used Dollface's 88 Pcs. Earth Color Palette (right most part 3rd to the last) or any matte medium brown eyeshadow color with a large blending brush.  Wiper motion is recommended and blend all harsh lines.

Step 3:
With the same palette, use a smaller crease brush with pointed tip or even without, to grab a darker shade of brown (rightmost part second from the bottom), apply the color on the outer V and open your eyes to check once in awhile to make sure the color blends well.

Step 4:
With a liquid liner, or cream liner, apply above and below the lashline.  In this tutorial, I am using Coastal Scents gel liner in True Black (which is drying up by the way as it has been a year with me).

Step 5:
To create a dimension of different shade, I've applied Maybelline's Vivid and Smooth Liner in Purple on the waterline.

Ok, seriously this is a bit brighter in person! hahahaha But you get the drift!  I forgot to include the photo but I've added a white shimmery eyeshadow on the inner corners of my eyes for that bright, awake look!

Curled my lashes with Elizabeth Arden's Lash curler (thanks Gracie for this) and my L'Oreal Mascara in Black.  You can use falsies but since this is a simple day look, I prefer to love my puny lashes!

Subtle Pink perfect for daytime

What's on the rest of my face aside from.... face?  *hahaha*

For the Face:
The New Revlon's Photoready Compact Makeup 
in Natural Beige using compact sponge
Set with Shu Uemura Loose Powder 
with Charm Mini Kabuki Brush

For the Cheeks:
Revlon Matte Blush in Barely Buff

For the Lips:
Making sure my lips were prepped with lip balm prior to eyeshadow application, blot lips with tissue and apply Revlon's Just Bitten Lipstain, after dry, apply NYX Acapulco Lipstick.  I did the extra step of Just Bitten Lipstain as my original lip color is quite pigmented, I want the "frosted pink" to show up even more.

And I prefer a non-pink outfit to give a nice contrast on your Subtle Barbie Pink look

And who says you can't be childish as you grow older?  
*looks around*
(this happens just once in this AMW Blog
I can't promise outside the blogosphere though)

Are you ok to sport such a "girly" look?
I definitely can!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
