For most, smokey eyes and feminine pinks don’t always seem like the likeliest of couples. But for this Spring/Summer season, it proves to be the ideal look to sport during hot nights out. The key to pulling off hard and soft for the next few months is to keep the dark eye sheer and to layer on an extra coat of blush to really juxtapose the two elements. Start by using a soft rounded eye shadow brush to apply Stila Jewel Eye Shadow in Black Sapphire. Concentrate the pigment to your lashline and by the outer corners of your eye. Blur the edges upward to just above the crease of the lid. Line your eyes with Mac Eye Kohl in Smolder, again just concentrating very close to the lashes and smudged slightly to avoid any harshness. Using the flat applicator brush that comes with the compact, start lightly feathering in Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush in Pink Kiss. Start at the apples and continue following the curve of your cheekbones. Go through three sheer layers of product before using fresh soft brush to blend in the hue, again avoiding any defined lines. Finish with Chanel Levres Scintillantes in Bagatelle, a fresh poppy that will add yet another dimension to your sophisticated look—a dose of high-impact shine.
