BEAUTY BAR: Pretty in Pinks

Spring has arrived in full force, prompting all Fashionistas and Fashionistos to pack up their winter wardrobes and focus on easygoing, trendy looks for the season. For more beauty-oriented individuals, shiny and summery makeup looks are beginning to appear and will likely frequent our Instagram feeds soon as summer approaches. Color palettes with more metallic, peachy, and lustrous aesthetics will soon be more constant, but this Fashionista is staying ahead of the trend with her shimmery, pink-toned makeup.

To give her eyes their iridescent effect, this Fashionista used the Too Faced natural love eye shadow palette Nudie all over each of her lids, and then put Makeup and Chill in each eye’s crease. She also put Antique Bronze from the Anastasia Beverly Hills modern Renaissance palette on the inner 2/3 of each eyelid, adding Cyprus Umber in the outer corners and Vermeer in the inner corners to give them a satiny and metallic look. To make her eyelashes pop, she first applied Eyes Right mascara and followed with Ubame mascara to give them volume in a deep black color. To achieve her glossy lips, she lined them with Buxom lip liner before filling them in with the Estée Edit’s lip color. She finished this look off with a layer of metallic liquid lipstick.

Of course, a fabulous makeup look isn’t complete without a fabulous outfit. This Fashionista wore a lovely off-the-shoulder jumpsuit with deep coral stripes to compliment the pink tones in her makeup, which are surrounded by navy and gray stripes to make them stand out. The material is breathable and flows easily, which is perfect for spring. It also has a skirt covering a pair of shorts that are part of the romper, so it’s both functional and elegant.

She accessorized with a pair of brown open-toed, lace-up pumps, which have circular cutouts on both sides that coordinate with the circles in her geometric earrings. All of her jewelry is gold, from her compass bangle to her bar pendant necklace (which she chose to engrave with New York City’s coordinates). Since no statement pieces were used, all of the piece’s unique aesthetics and common elements work together to create a finished, uniform appearance.
