"Midnight Rose" Tutorial (Dramatic Pink/Plum Smoky Eyes using Givenchy Le Prisme Yeux 71 Purple Show)
Rosy pink tones are not typical colors for the eyes, because it can go so wrong and make your eyes look tired and swollen. Do it right, and it can be pretty and dramatic with a slight “goth”/gothic feel.
Here are a few tips:
- Make sure you conceal any unevenness and redness in your skin. Rosy shadows will bring those out, and make them more obvious.
- Blend a rose colored shadow with softer, more pastel tones AND to make sure you ground it with dark definition at the lash line.
- One other trick is to use a bit of liner in a contrasting tone (I used an olive-bronze pencil since there are so many red tones and green is on the opposite end of the color wheel). A brown or plum pencil complements the rosy shadows better but they would fade right into the background instead of standing out.
- Pair it with soft blush and neutral/nude lips. Rose everywhere can look quite scary and over the top.
