Flower Series: Part IV - Pink Petals Tutorial

19 comments:
 
Hello Pigment Pals! The theme of today's post is pink, pretty in pink! This colorful, monochromatic look is perfect for beginners because of how simple it is to do but it's also great for girly girls or anyone looking for an ultra romantic look (early Valentine's day look maybe? Like, seven months early?). Pink eyeshadows can be intimidating if you don't know how to tame them, so I hope this post gives you the confidence to try on this most feminine of colors. Pink is your friend, I promise! Come in and see!


My amazing boyfriend got me this pretty flower crown from Forever 21 and I've been wanting to wear it for a while. I wanted to wear it with something that would match it's feminine flowery feel so I created this look that was inspired by soft pink petals. I pulled a lot of my color choices from the headband, which meant I ended up with a full palette of almost exclusively pink products. You can watch the tutorial below to see exactly what I used. 



Sigh, how dreamy is this soft pink look? It's so gorgeous against light blue eyes. I can't wait to wear this look again, and I might even do a white gold shimmer on the center next time to kick it up a notch. All in all though, I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I am curious to see if people like this one as much as my other, very popular, light pink look that I posted way back in 2012. 





The trick here is to balance out your pinks by selecting shades from all over the spectrum; light cool pastels, bright neon corals, subdued warmer tones, soft icy shimmery shades, etc. Then, to tone down all the color, bring in a couple neutral shades to blend everything out. Browns are especially effective at keeping things in check when working with pink eyeshadows, I find. See how I combined everything in the tutorial below: 


Well, that concludes another entry in my ongoing floral inspired series. Stay tuned for more coming soon!

  7. Steer clear of quick dresses with as well quite a few gildings for instance sequins, beads, and so forth. and in the event you should have frills and ruffles, maintain them brief and for the bare minimal. Ruffles really are a nono for anyone who is plussized or possess a hefty higher physique or brief, stubby legs.
