FOTD: Think pink!
You know what, I've never done an all-out pink makeup before. I just didn't think that pink looked good on my eyes, or maybe I just haven't found the right combination of pinks for my skin tone. The latter was actually the correct assumption, once I found these In2It eyeshadow palettes (my review of which is super overdue).
Anyway, I actually built this whole look around the new Clinique Lid Smoothie in Pinkgo Biloba since I wanted to try it out as an eyeshadow base. It's a pretty simple look (just three eyeshadow shades), but I was really pleased by how the pinks flattered my skin and made it look fresh - at least, to my mind. Hehe. I enjoyed this look so I'll definitely wear it again.
If you want to try it out for yourself, the trick is to get the right shades of pink for your skin tone. Fair women can pull off most pinks, medium-toned girls can go for warm peachy-pinks with golden shimmer, while those who are dark-toned will look good in deeper, heavier pinks. Still, this isn't a hard and fast rule, so feel free to experiment!
