Rock Romance: Soft winged pink eye and rose-petal lips

I got a request to do a sort of "rock"-inspired look that was a bit more delicate and pretty, using pink on the lips, as well as one regarding how to do winged/flared shadow, so I thought I'd combine these into one tutorial!

The main products you will need:
  1. A very black glossy kajal or pencil. If you're in the EU and can get hold of Essence products, I highly recommend the "I <3 Rock" Gloss Eye pencil. It comes in only one shade that I know of - the most perfect, lustrous jet black.
  2. A deep magenta pink shadow. I just used the 88 Matte palette that you can get from either Coastal Scents, BH Cosmetics or Sedona Lace.
  3. An opal pink iridescent shadow. MAC Pink Opal pigment, or The Body Shop Eye Shimmer #04 are the 2 I know of. They are an ivory/white but go on as a soft pink shimmer.
  4. Soft pink blush. I used Essence Blush Souffle in 01 Prima Ballerina. (I love this. It's like a mousse version of MAC's Well Dressed, at about 1/6 the price.)
  5. Pale peachy-pink lipstick. If you have medium to slightly deeper skin tones, try Barry M Peachy Pink or MAC Creme Cup. If you're very dark-skinned, try a sheerer finish or a gloss instead. You don't want to overpower the eyes with a very loud, pale mouth. If you are pale to fair, read on for what I mixed to get the perfect petal pout!

  2. The lipstick is AMAZING!
    Usually the makeup with pink on the eyes and lips gets a little tacky, but your choice of tones was very nice =) - XO

    1. Hi Carla,
      Thank you! And yes, I know what you mean by the tacky pink-eye-pink-lip look, LOL. So I was quite keen to alter the tones a bit. Thanks for dropping by!
