Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I decided to try the look from the Illamasqua Throb collection.  I mentioned it here.

Of course you know that I omitted the white pancake makeup and made it more wearable.  Application was soft.  Cute.  Soft cut crease.  Pink cheeks.  Here it is:

The Details

  • UDPP
  • Urban Decay Virgin eyeshadow (pale pinkish white colour) – all over the eyelid to the crease, use a soft blending brush like M.A.C.’s #224
  • Make Up For Ever #56 eyeshadow (bright pink) – keep the eyes open and apply a soft wash of colour all across the crease and just above
  • M.A.C. Superslick Liquid Eye Liner in On the Hunt – upper lash line, winged out
  • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in Flame
  • M.A.C. lipglass in Venetian
