PINK with Evil Shades

Usually I'm extremely late to the party with everything blog-related. Since Valentine's Day is coming up, I'm thinking we'll be seeing lots of pink and red themed looks. Usually, whenever I do a themed-look, I never get around to posting it until it's completely irrelevant (such as my beach makeup look that was posted in October, lol!) However, while looking through my blogging folders, I have found quite a few things that are somewhat Valentine's Day appropriate, such as this lovely pink look I did based around the Evil Shades Pink Prysm Spectrum Pot. It's a gorgeous pink with a lovely silver sheen to it. I wore this look to go shopping for makeup at the NARS counter. The girl working there was like, "OMG, where did you get those eyeshadows???" Indie cosmetics, FTW!!!!!

It can be hard to wear pink eyeshadow as it sometimes makes a person look a bit ill. Do you wear pink eyeshadow? What are some of your favourite pink shades?


  1. Pinks can definitely be tough. I'm wearing some right now, though! Sugarpill Dollipop and Darling Girl Twin Peaks to be specific. I used to with teal liner to break up the pinkeye-ness of it.

  2. When I wear pink eyeshadow I just have to make sure to do some other color liner, whether it's black or some other color, and keep the pink away from my tear duct. Then I don't look too sick ^.^

  3. Awesome look! I love pink eyeshadows. I guess I don't think twice about them! And yes, indie cosmetics are THE BEST! Love them over everything else I own!

  4. So gorgeous! This is a really neat take on a pink eye look! I love pink and burgundy eyeshadows, I need more in my life. I have some mauve shades and opalescent pinks, but none that are really life-changing. Emmanuel by NARS (I think it might be discontinued! Noooooo) is a kind of soft red that I love, and The Body Shop's Baked Eye Color in Quartz is another favorite; it has two sides, one is iridescent pink, the other is a really neat burgundy. I also really like Sting by Urban Decay. I really want Pink Prism now, though!

  5. Ooh nice! Yeah, I tend to stray away from pink on the eye, but I think with thick black eyeliner it looks great :)

  6. That is gorgeous! I agree that pink is hard to wear; I like Urban Decay Woodstock and some lighter, pearly pink shades from Stila and Silk Naturals. I don't think I wear pink that often, though, since sometimes it makes my undereye circles look 10x worse!

  7. Very dramatic! I love it! Very sexy, meow!

  8. Love it. Fusia and black are always a good combo in my book. You've got great skills!

  9. Indie cosmetics are the best and always very unique. I love the pink look , awesome !!

  10. Love this! You look gorgeous, as always :)

  11. I'm in pink heaven. I can't describe how incredible this look is!

  12. wow, this is probably one of my favorite looks from you!! I really like the softly defined crease and the beautiful almost iridescent shade of the pink. So lovely!!
