Millennial Pink – Go To Spring Makeup + Spring Makeup Favorites


Good Evening! Tonight I have a quick tutorial of my go-to look this spring, using some of my favorite products this spring. It’s super easy to do and takes no time at all. Coming up Friday, I will have a post devoted just to my spring favorites so keep an eye out.

One thing I am loving this Spring is Millennial Pink, and using it in my makeup in a monochromatic style.  photo M PINK 9_zpsm77mwjsm.jpg

I’m really digging the pink mixed with a duo chrome pink highlight. It’s a throwback to the 90’s but has a modern feel. Aesthetic AF

One of the best things about this look is you can use whatever products you have on hand really and use any color that you want. The eyeshadow is mainly done with a blush and highlighter, I used a shadow in the same tone to add some depth. So if you wanna see how to get this crazy effortless look, just keep reading below.

The star of this look is Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Paarty which is the main color I used on my eyes and my cheeks,

To enhance the eye and depth I used these shades from the Tarte Amazonian Clay Pro Eyeshadow Palette. 20170328_162520

And for a pop of shine on the eye, I used Nyx Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Snow Rose.

The Eyes

I opted for a stronger brow to create some contrast with the soft eye look. I started the eyes by priming which is a must for me because I have hooded lids and if I don’t use an eyeshadow primer they will crease like hell.

After priming I set my lids with an off white eyeshadow close to my skin tone. I used a shade from the Tarte Pro Eyeshadow Palette.

On a flat shader brush, I applied Paarty from Tarte all over the lid, into to crease and the transition area. Really building up the pigmentation and blowing the color out with a fluffy blending brush. There are a million blushes out there you can do this same look with too.  photo M PINK EYE 4_zpstqe59z5d.jpg
Then taking Mod from the Tarte Amazonian Clay Pro Eyeshadow Palette, I added some definition to the outer portion. You could also use the pink shades from the Anastasia Modern Renenaisance Palette or any other shade that is a little deeper than the blush.

I applied that same blush along the lower lash line with the flat shader brush.

To create a barrier, and open the eye up I used Nyx Faux White in Seashell on the inner water line.

Then tight lined my upper waterline with Nyx Faux Black in BlackBerry. I wanted to use something softer than black and these Nyx Pencils are sooo good.

Lastly, to add some dimension and shine I patted Nyx Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder on the center of the lid and on the inner corner.

The Skin

I kept the skin pale and perfected with a glow.

On the face, I used Nyx Total Control Drops for foundation and concealed with Nyx Gotcha Covered. I hit the high points of my face with Nyx Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sun Beam. Then set everything with ELF HD Powder. I kept the contour light with

I kept the contour light with Sculpt from the Tarte Pro Glow Palette. I used the same blush I used one the eyes, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Paarty and lightly bronzed with Physicians Formula BB Bronze Booster in Light. Lastly, I highlighted with the NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminator in Snow Rose.

The Lips

For the Lips, I went with Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme in Slow Burn.
