HOT Pink!!


I took the pics long after I did the look so the blue under is a little faded.... sorry! But- I was very excited about this. I wore this out- in day light.... yup. I don't have a night life- plus I'm prego so that's out of the question. I wear my bright looks during the day, unless they are too extreme for Walmart. lol!


I used the Manly 120 palette for this look. The hot pink is my favorite color on the whole palette and probably the only reason I really wanted it. It has a very sheer, chalky consistency though. So, I load up on primers first. I used the ELF primer and then the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk for better adhesion. It looks wonders- because the color turns out being brighter. I used a purple over and a tiny bit of black in my crease for some added definition to this neon looking craze. The blue- well, that is inspired by Abrilliantbrunette. She always loves using blue under her eyes for bright looks and it works!


The pink and purple look-well, they are my favorite colors for eye shadows, unfortunately I tend to stick to them too often. Plus- there's a ton of cool makeup artists out there using them for Valentine's looks. I would not wear this for Valentines. I feel that I usually go for soft looks on that day. Maybe this year will be different. Who knows? Hope you liked the look- catch ya laterz!

  4. hm, i thought the pink came from the acid palette, but i was wrong. we own a manly palette too, but don't use it too often since the weirdness of them scenting the shadows! are yours scented to?
    when i open the lid to the palette a cloud of perfume hits the face, and i wonder why they have put perfume in eyeshadows!! weird!//Azure

    1. I agree- I don't use it much but once in a while I do and it's so true- all the shades are scented for some reason. I don't think they are the best to tell you the truth- but making them work hasn't been too much of a problem. My eyes are a bit sensitive but with primer and some other kind of base it's not so bad. =-)
