A Peach Eye Makeup Tutorial for Valentines Day!

If you are solo for Valentines day and you know it clap your hands *Clap Clap*. Why the glum faces girls?? Okay, I know all the red-ness and heartness and cheesiness in the air can be totally annoying, and you literally want to scream if you see one more girl carrying a bouquet of flowers but on the flip side- perfect excuse to go have a girls night out, do some crazy things and make it a V-day to remember. And whether you do have a date or are going solo with your girls, this peach eye shadow tutorial is a great way to kick off the night.

Psst: Order some peach bellini to match , and when a guy complements you on your pretty eyes, say “Look my drink matches with them. Buy me another one !”. Ok no, dont say that.

Stash you need :

1. 2 brushes- a flat shader and a round blending brush

2. A bright orange eyeshadow, a medium peach eyeshadow , a light peach eyeshadow , a matte brown eyeshadow

3. Liner, mAscara

Two must have makeup brushes- A flat shader from Coastal Scents and a small round blending brush for crease area also from Coastal Scents. These brushes are amazing by the way- totally worth the money and tons better than any Vega/ Colorbar etc you get in India.DSC04968

 

Start with a bright orange eyeshadow. I am using my Coastal Scents 120 by 5 pallete and the shadow in the last row labelled 1

Step1 :Apply it in your outer  third of your eye. PS: On the left i have used a primer on top of my lids thats why the grey look. Its the Urban Decay Primer Potion

Step 2: Then, take Mac Expensive Pink eyeshadow (or you can choose eyeshadow labelled as 2 in the pic and with your flat shader brush apply it in the centre of your eyelids.

Step 3:With a smaller shader brush, pick the shade labelled 2 and apply it on your inner 1/3rd of the eyes.

Step 4: Now take the rounded blending brush and dip it into your favourite matte crease color. Mac Folie is an eternal favourite of mine, it is the perfect crease color for my skintone. PS: Comment below and tell me what your favourite crease color is.

Using your favourite crease color go over the orange on your crease and with a windshield wiper motion blend it out. The brown will mute the orange a bit and when you open your eyes it should look like this.

Step 5: Apply eyeliner. Im using a Chambor dark chocolate brown eyeliner. Also apply kohl halfway down your eye on the bottom rim. I did not go the full way because i still wanted that open-eyes look and didnt want it to feel harsh but if you feel naked without kohl, go ahead and do it the full way.

The coastal scents one are really good mily! They rival the high end ones…
But in India- inglot has nice ones )(thgough expensive, you can also try the Vega professional range but those are ok)

Nice. Expensive pink looks like a gorgeous colour.
Step 6 is the most difficult part for me. I work so hard to get a proper eye makeup done and then the pics come out in all weird colours :/

You brought a lovely break from the ‘think pink’ trend for Valentines day. Every makeup idea I have been searching for on youtube has this pink and I detest pink! ( I know, even I beat myself for that)
I have the dome shaped crease brush and honestly, it’s one of the brushes I use regularly!

peach look nice on the eyes. I usually end up dabbing just one shade all over. and sometimes even go off with just eyeliner. I am not too good with eye makeup. :)

Try mac sushi flower

Reply

Vedha March 9, 2014 at 10:44 pm

Thanks! I just ordered the three MAC colors suggested in this post (expensive pink, sushi flower, and folie). I am going to a beach wedding where the couple is getting married an hour before sunset with reception to follow. I have a dress that will transition from day to night but I needed some makeup ideas to do the same. This is perfect! I cannot wait for my shipment to arrive and for me to give it a trial run.
