How To Create The Perfect Pink Pout & A Bold Eye

February 6, 2014

When creating the look for my kate spade new york shoot I knew I wanted something simple, fun, and of course pink.  And I knew exactly who to ask.  Ms. Claudia Mejerle.  Claudia’s been making brides and celebs beautiful for years and I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on several occasions.  And today I’m turning the blog over to her so she can walk you through the steps and tools she used to create my look. So without further ado, and in Claudia’s own words…

Step 1.  After applying your moisturizer and foundation and taking care of any concealing, prep the eye lids with a primer to even out the skin.  Trish McEvoy’s Eye Base Essentials in “Nude” is perfect.
 
Step 2.  Sweep a thin line of gel eye liner on your top lash line with skinny and pointed brush, such as the Bdellium 710.  Extend the line slightly past the outer corner.  I used the Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in “Black Ink” for a crisp, defined eye.  Side note from MKR…this eye liner was amazing.  Usually by hour two my liner starts to smudge making my pale skin look dark and tired, but even after hour 5 it didn’t move.  Loved it!

Step 3.  After several doses of mascara on the top lashes, I used the MAC 217 brush to work a soft wash of light taupe shadow in the crease of the eye to enhance it further. Everyone needs to own at least one of these brushes!
  
Step 4.  To warm up the entire look I then gave her cheeks a hint of color by dusting a sheer, pink blush on the apples of your cheeks. The Dior “Rosy Glow” blush is a favorite and works on nearly everyone!
  
 
Step 5.  To finish the look with that shocking pink lip Mandy loves I used the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain in “Lovesick.”   This is hands down the best and brightest pink. I love this product because it has great pigment, moisture and doesn’t move for hours.
 
So my Loves, there you have it from the expert herself…the easiest how-to for a pink pout and an eye that pops.  I must admit I loved this whole look it’s got me thinking…do you want to see more beauty tutorials on WOM?  truly, MKR

    I would love to see more beauty posts especially if they’re like this. I think I could actually create this look. Thanks for sharing!

    That pink lip is to die for! Shocked to see it’s Revlon!

  • I was shocked at how easy it actually is. After the shoot I went out and bought everything she suggested! xo

  • Isn’t it! And Revlon has so many different colors I’m going to go out and buy every one of them! xo

  • Oh my goodness! This is totally gorgeous. I”m (Sarah) also super happy to see beautiful makeup on fair skin because it’s hard to find inspiration that doesn’t rely on bronzer all the time. Not that there’s anything wrong with bronzer ;) You look fabulous! XO

  • Thank you darling! And it is tough. I’ve been learning to really embrace my fair skin instead of hide it with bronzer that’s why I’m really loving pinks for my skin tone. xo
