This week´s article is going to be all about date makeups. Of course, the most important thing is that you feel comfortable – every look is possible. But for this, I concentrated on two different eye looks, that both include a shimmery pink eyeshadow. This can be quite hard to work with, so I hope that you can get some inspiration here. Generally, I would say that the only thing to keep in mind is that the light pink shade needs a darker counterpart. Mascara is a must. Otherwise, it might make you look sick, which is not something that one wants on a date – or ever… Read more to see how I solved this problem! ♥
A pink Instagram look – my way
I called this an Instagram look because I have seen many of quite similar ones on there. There are many tutorials on how to create a cut-crease look and I wanted to implement parts of it into a classic smokey eye look.
I started this look by defining the crease with a warm toned light brown. After that, I put concealer on the lid and slightly carved out the line that I created before. Then, I added a light pink shimmery eyeshadow over the concealer. After that, I put some slightly darker burgundy tone on the outer corners and on my lower lash line. After that, I lined my lower waterline with burgundy liner and my upper one with black kajal. This is what I put on the outer corners of my upper lash line as well. But I blended it out, so that it was more of a shadow than a liner. The last thing to do is to add mascara.

A clean pink toned cat eye
Whereas the first look was definitely one for night time, this look is definitely more neutral and therefore perfect for daytime as well. This is also a good option for you, if you wear winged eyeliner a lot.
Achieving this look is fairly easy. Just put some warm toned eyeshadow or peachy blush in your crease and then add a light pink sparkly eyeshadow to your moveable lids. Blend it together slightly and the eyeshadow part is done. After that, it is time for the winged liner. Personally, I like to start with drawing a very small line from the inner corner up to the middle of the eye. After that I draw the wing and then connect the tip of it relatively straightly with the line I created before. Then, I fill in the blank parts. After that, I like to line my upper waterline with black kajal. The last steps were putting on lashes and adding mascara to the upper lashes.
