Retro Hot Pink Look

Hi everybody!

I have been MIA for a long time, sorry about that. I was very busy the last few days and I have suddenly got a lot of time on my hands. So I am bored now. SO!!! To pep up, I decided to play with some fun, bright colours. The result is this:
retro hot pink look
This look is what I call a retro-neon pink-disco look. Here’s what I used to create this look:

For Eyes:

1. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Irish Rose
2. Smashbox Lipgloss in Baby Pout
3. Smashbox Lipgloss in Ecstasy

So here are the steps:
1. Get your base makeup in place.

2. Apply an eye primer all over your lid, right upto the brow bone.

3. Take a bright pink eye shadow. Best get a shimmery one. Apply it on the lid. Don’t go above the crease.

4. Take a plumy brown eye shadow. I am using MAC Espresso. Any brown eye shadow would do, use purple for a even bolder look.

5. Apply this plumy brown shadow in the crease and wing it out towards the end of your eyebrow. Blend the same in the outer corner too. Like so:

6. Highlight the brow bone. I am using MAC Shroom from the same palette above.

7. Place a glittery shadow/loose glitter in the middle of the lid and a little bit in the inner corner of the eyes. I am using my Urban Decay Shadow.


8. Line your upper lash line with a black liquid/gel liner. Wing it out for the dramatic, 60’s retro look.

9. Curl your lashes and apply mascara.


10. Apply a pink/purple blush. I am using MAC Beauty Powder in Briar Rose.

12. Finish the look with a bright pink lipstick. I have used Irish Rose on my lips. I have applied a light link gloss in the centre of my lips and a dark plum in the outer corners of the lips, to get a plump pout.

13. Here’s the entire finished look:

I am not sure about the wearability of this look. I was in a mood for some fun, and fun I had!!!

Hope you like this as much as I did.

Lots of love

      1. yeah it looks gorgeous… pata hai I am also bending more towards these blue based pinks. pata nahin kyon but they sort of looks nicer . 😀 😀

        1. I don’t know.. The gloss is pretty sheer.. I am not sure if I’ll be able to carry a lipstick in this shade.. It would look awkward.. :idk: :idk: :idk: :idk: :idk: :idk:

          1. You know this shade is infact making your face look brighter and vibrant.. YOu remem that dior lippy I was staring staring at it today and realized that it sort of a blue based pink and it totally brings light to my face.. infact mac cosmo also has a hint of blue in it.

  11. This is perfect for daytime and I’m a pink person.The winged liner totally goes with the look.My hands are too shaky for a liquid liner though.

    1. Thanks Sonia for loving it!!! I wouldn’t dare wearing such bold liner in public, but i do love to play with my liner!!! Practice is the only thing that makes a steady line.. I have ruined boxes and boxes of tissues, when i first started with liquid liners… :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
