How I Do #GlossierPink!

gp

Hello Loveys!

I have raved in past posts about the brand Glossier, I was encouraged to try my hand at the #GlossierPink post! I have actually been working on this post for quite a while, but any time it was almost ready something happened that required all of my attention. So, with great enthusiasm, here is how I do #GlossierPink!

After much thought,  I decided that I will be showing y’all a couple of my favorite pink toned products, and a look using them at the end! My wardrobe is filled with gray and black, which leaves me with the ability to really experiment with the shades I use for makeup, nails, and so on. Pink just happens to be an accent color that I really enjoy using.

Let’s start off with nails…

Wet n’ Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel “Pinky Swear.

This polish is a stunning light pink. If I am wearing any polish on my toes it is more often than not this little lady. Though it truly isn’t 1 step like the name states, it requires multiple coats, the shade is pretty enough for me to over look that little faux-pas.At only $4.99, you really can’t go wrong.

Blush:

Milani Rose Powder Blush “Romantic Rose”

This blush has gotten a ton of attention in the beauty community, and it is easy to see why. It is pigmented, but not too pigmented that it makes you look like a clown, affordable, and the product in the pan is in the shape of a rose! Too stinking cute!

gp3If I am in a hurry or having a hard time deciding what blush to use, this gem of the drugstore is my go to. The best part is it is only $8.99!

Highlight:

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked High-lighter “Radiant”

The photo really isn’t doing this high-lighters pinky tone any justice. It looks beautiful on the face and eyes, even as a lip high-light!

Lip Color:

Glossier Generation G Matte Lip Color “Like”

If you want a matte lip color that doesn’t make your lips feel like concrete, then this line is 100% for you. The packaging is slim so it is easy to travel with. This product is also seriously moisturizing. Glossier’s first concern is skin care, and this product really does get that point across. You can get your hands on it as well for $18 on their website.

Eyeshadow:

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bon’s Palette

This palette is a serious life saver. It has great crease shades for my skin tone, as well as some great brow bone highlights. But, that is for another post, right now we are focusing on the 3 beautiful pink shades that this palette contains.

L to R “Sprinkles”, “Cotton Candy”, and “Totally Fetch”

I really love using the two lighter shades on the lid and “Sprinkles” makes a gorgeous inner corner highlight. Believe it or not I enjoy using “Totally Fetch” to define my inner corner and on my lower lash line. I actually used it to do a hot pink cut crease in the past, talk about a pop of color!

The palette itself is also a pretty light pink shade with hearts popping out of it. I have used it as sort of a Valentines decoration before, and I totally plan to do so again.

The Look:

I am going to start off with talking you through the eye portion of this look, sense when I actually did the look this is where I started.

  • I primed my eyes with the Too Faced Shadow Insurance and set it with my face powder.
  • I started off the actual eye look with the shade “Mocha” in the crease as my transition shade.
  • I then dipped into “Cotton Candy” and applied it all over my lid.
  • Using “Totally Fetch” I defined my outer v and my crease.
  • However, I wanted a little more definition. I decided to go in with the shade “Bordeaux:”, which is a stunning burgundy and define my crease and lower lash line just a bit more.
  • I popped “Sprinkles” into my inner corner, and used it to highlight my brow bone.
  • I threw on a wing and some mascara and called it a job well done.

  • For my brows I used my ELF brow pencil and my Glossier boy brow, here is my post where I talk about it in-depth.
  • I used my Too Faced Hang Over RX primer to prime all over my face, especially in my T-Zone.
  • To conceal blemishes and under my eyes I used the Glossier Stretch Concealer “light”.
  • Instead of a heavy-duty foundation I used the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint “light”. I wanted to let my skin breath. This is the only type of skin tint I use, and don’t ever see myself breaking my loyalty to it.
  • I set the face with my ELF translucent pressed powder.
  • To highlight I used the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlight “Radiant”. I used it on my cheek bones, my nose, and mu cupid’s bow.
  • For my blush I used my Milani Powder blush in “Romantic Rose”. I tried to get the bulk of the product on the apples of my cheeks, then dusted it back towards my ear.
  • To bronze and to a slight contour I used the Medusa’s Makeup Bronzer “Sun Kissed”. I really like the luminous glow this bronzer gives the skin.
  • I then sprayed the Glossier Soothing Facial Mist liberally all over my face to really help the powders melt into my skin.
  • Lastly I used the Glossier Generation- G lip color “Like”, to give my lips a quick and healthy flush of a nudey pink.

After seeing all these products in action I am reminded of how much I love each and every one!

    1. Not at all! It is really light weight and creamy so it worked great for me. I had a few of those nasty dried blemishes you get from picking at them (bad habit) and it concealed them with out making them look obvious.
