Rose Gold

I really do love this pink shadestick. I wish UD would make some pink ones. This one is very similar to Fyrinnae’s Rapunzel Had Extensions color. To do this look, I applied TFSI as my primer. I then used MAC Vapour (a pale peachy-pink shade with slight violet iridescence) on the browbone and the crease. I then applied Flirt Vanilla Truffle widely in the crease and blended it out. The pink shadestick was applied to the lid. Then I followed up by using a pencil brush to apply MAC All That Glitters to the lower crease and outer v. I added a bit more of Vapour to the inner corners of the eye, and then I did my eyeliner. I used UD Perversion liquid liner on top and UD Perversion 24/7 pencil on bottom.

You can see how the gold from the pink and All That Glitters really sort of help transition between the two shades.

This is me outside in direct sunlight. I mixed my foundations today. First I applied a layer of Laura Geller’s Balance-N-Brighten foundation in Porcelain. Then I applied a layer of MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light on top, to attempt to tone down the pink. It’s still slightly too pink, but I think it looks better than when I’ve worn Porcelain on its own.

      I love rose & gold. LOVE. These colors are exceptional and you look gorgeous.

      OK, I have a question that may seem kind of silly but I have been wondering this for months: how do you get that marvelous shape you do a lot with your shadows? Kind of diamond eyes? Do you see what I am getting at? LOL hard to explain but you always have this perfect shape to your eye shadow area.

      I really appreciate you doing a quick rundown of the look above the cut; I always sort of frown when I’m scrolling back and forth from the products list to the pictures with the lid showing. So thank you :)

      • Phyrra

        I’l try to start doing it more often. I wasn’t sure if people like that or not, so thank you for the feedback!

      The pink in the shadow, your hair and the gloss all pull together to make a great look.

      • Phyrra

        My eyes are annoyingly very sensitive, which is why I can’t really keep my eyes open outside for pictures unless I have sunglasses on.

      I’m actually eyeing the other shadestick duo, but this one is really pretty as well! :)

      • Phyrra

        I keep telling myself I don’t really need that other shadestick :P

      That’s a very soft, pretty look!

      I had pink on my mind too – just picked up a NYX chrome called Golden Pink.

      • Phyrra

        Oh nice!

    • http://eyelinerandspraypaint.blogspot.com robyn

      That really is a nice shadestick! I love rose gold colours.

      • Phyrra

        I do too, provided they look more pink/gold than orange gold.

    • MlleK

      the blush color suits you really well!

      • Phyrra

        Thank you MlleK

      I love the shadestick ! Sooooooo pretty !

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Olivia! I think it’s gorgeous!

    • Gabrielle

      I am in LOVE with this! The blending between the two is really stunning. And the brow pencil you used complements the colours so well too!

      Might you know of another pink that would be similar in tone? Especially something in the more indie lines?

      • Phyrra

        Yes, as I said above, Fyrinnae’s Rapunzel Had Extensions is very similar to the pink shade.

    • kawaiiferreto

      LOVE! I pretty much love any gold + anything looks tho. This reminds me I need to give Vanilla Truffle some love soon. And makes me remember I neeeeed Rapunzel Had Extensions.

      • Phyrra

        You need to use Vanilla Truffle! It’s cuuute!
