Simply Pink & Brown

Today’s look is very minimal and neutral. Suitable for everyday makeup or lunch dates. And it is easy too especially for beginners.

So, the colors we need are:

  1. Pink
  2. Brown
  3. Cream (as highlighter)

I just bought this palette I’m using from Watson, called Trend Chic. It is only RM3.77. It is worth it because the colors are very simple and neutral, not too strong. The type of colors we used everyday. Not to mention is very easy to store too.

(Disclaimer: If you are unlucky, some colors don’t pay off. I suggest you check straight away after you purchase in front of the cashier... hahah)

Applying Foundation

I’m using Kryolan TV Paint Stick in W5. If you are fairer, try W4. Take a sponge, dab it on your foundation stick and starts to apply it on the face. Makes sure you get all the face covered evenly. If you have very visible scar, do apply concealer on the spots. Then using a face brush, apply loose face powder (or some people prefer setting powder) evenly on your face. After that, apply eye primer and base for eyeshadow. I’m using Orima cream eyeshadow. MAC Paint Pot in Painterly will do just fine if not better.


Take that pink color and apply it on the lid. About 2/3.

Take the brown color and apply it on the outer corner and slowly sweep it in.

Do the windshield wiper motion but only till half of the lid. Give it a good sweep. We want really soft brown there.

Take the cream color. Apply that under the brow as your highlighter. Then fill in the brows. Apply eyeliner on the upper lash line and 1/3 in on the lower lash.

Apply falsies. This is of course optional. I just feel like putting it on today... Hihi...

Then contouring, I used a soft brown eyeshadow. You can also use brown blusher or face powder that is darker than your skin tone.

After that apply blusher on the apple of you cheeks and highlight on your cheekbone. As the last touch, apply mineralize skin finish (or you can use bronzer) on your cheek, nose bridge and the areas you want to higlight.

AND... VOILA!!!!
