Make-Up How To: Annie Potts in Pretty in Pink

Caroline suggested I do a tutorial of Iona's make-up in PRETTY IN PINK. Being a huge fan of striking make-up, I jumped at the challenge. This is my first tutorial, and any feedback would be greatly appreciated! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

You Will Need:
- Eyeshadow primer (I'm using Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Cotton)
- Black mascara
- Eyelash Curler
- Black eyeliner
- Light purple eyeshadow (I'm using #5 in the Pixi Mermaid kit)
- Pink eyeshadow (I'm using Two Faced I Know What Boys Want)

STEP ONE:
Prep your eyes with your favorite primer, and begin covering your eyelid all the way to the brow bone in a light purple shadow. Next, use a pink shadow on the crease and brow bone.

STEP TWO:
Line your upper and lower lids with a fine pointed black eyeliner pencil - if you are more comfortable using liquid eyeliner, feel free to do so! End the lids with a cateye. Next, make a half-circle right above the crease. This can be rather tricky - I usually have to redraw the lines several times to get the shape I want.

STEP THREE:
Reapply light purple shadow to lid and pink shadow to crease and brow bone. Finish with mascara and curl your lashes.

Your end result should resemble something like this:

♥, Kailey

  22. This is awesome! Pretty in pink is the best. "I don't want you to see where I live, ok???" Or something. She should've gone off with Ducky, but whatever. This makeup is really cool, great job. And I just discovered your blog and it's cool.
