Spring Look: Pretty in Pink ft. Lonjure Lashes

I rarely use pinks, reds and oranges on my lids since I think they're very bright and I can't pull them off but it's fun to use them once in awhile. Spring is here and instead of me going for my usual purple or green for a bright and colorful lid, I decided to be fun and adventurous and try out a hot pink and coral combo. It has been awhile since I've had makeup posts so this was really fun to do and I got to wear fantabulous lashes from Lonjure too! Also, I am using items mostly from the drugstore so you could easily recreate this look.

The look actually turned up really pretty so ladies, whip out those pink and coral eyeshadows that you have sitting inside your makeup drawers and let's get started!

Face and Cheeks:
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Medium - for a light coverage that shows natural skin peeking through
e.l.f. Bronzer - slight contour of the cheeks, temples, jam, and sides of the nose
NYX Powder Blush in Rose Garden - applied to the apples of the cheek and bringing it up to the temples and blending it out for a healthy natural flush (use the blush lightly since this is a really pigmented blush)
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Blonde - Apply lightly on the bridge of the nose, cupid's bow, along the cheekbones and forehead

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Faint - finally something other my Wet n Wild Brow Kit (Which I still do love and adore and running out again for the 2nd time) ^^

e.l.f. Eyeshadow Primer - apply all over the lid

For the eyeshadows, I used my NYX 78 Colors Eye Shadow Palette (which was probably one of my first ever palettes), but I have found dupes for the shadows in the e.l.f. Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette. Basically any Hot Pink shadow would do as an alternative for the first color and any coral shadow as the second color would do. You may even use a powdered blush of similar shade if you don't have any. I'm sure you can find dupes of this shades in the drugstore. 

NYX 1 Eyeshadow (Hot Pink) - apply a fluffy blending brush so that it is diffused all over the lid without it being too overly bright than it already is; with a shader brush, lightly bring the shade down to the lower lid area
NYX 2 Eyeshaodw (Coral) - with a clean blending brush, apply this shade right above the first shadow to blend out the edges and to soften the eye
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Walk of Shame - highlight the brow bone
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Virgin - highlight inner corners of the eyes using a pencil brush
Sephora Eyeliner in Brown - tightline and apply on the waterline as well as under the lower lash line, smudge with a brown shadow to soften it up
Maybelline Master Precise Liner - Line Your upper lash line and wing it out
Lonjure Lashes in L1 Reverie - curl lashes and apply a thin coat of mascara, trim lashes as needed and apply falsies

I love how this lashes made me look so flirty and sweet at the same time. I feel really comfy wearing this pair of lashes. The spikes on this lashes really made it appear more lengthening. It somehow looks natural while obviously I'm wearing falsies but it is not over the top as well. 

Wet n Wild 903C Just Peachy - All over the lips, blend out with your finger for a lighter and softer look
Wet n Wild 905D Smokin Hot Pink - Center of the lips, blend out for a gradient look - both lipsticks create a nice matte gradient lip
