Tutorial: Pink Dolly Look

Hi~ Today I am using the NEW Anna Sui's Eye Color Duo 01 to create a sweet Pink Dolly Look. I am not showing pics of the other products I have used, because you can use any other products different from mine, as long as they are of similar colour.

Cute beautiful casing

Bright pink shimmer powder shadow + black cream shadow


A few simple steps:
(Apologies for the blurry photos.. haven't figured out how to take clear close up pics with my new camera yet!)

1. Using the thinner side of the sponge applicator provided in the palette, use the black cream shadow and draw a medium thick line on your upper lash line. Add more shadow until you get an intense black line.

2. Dubbing a bit more shadow onto your applicator, apply the black shadow at the outer corner of your upper eyelid. Apply with a circular motion to blend the shadow upwards, above your crease.

3. Use your finger to blend more product onto your upper eyelid. Using your finger will even out any harsh outlines of the shadow you have just applied with your applicator.

4. It does not matter if the shadow is not that well blended yet.

5. Using the broader side of the same applicator, apply the pink shimmery shadow from the inner corner of your eyelid, all the way to the 3/4 area of the eyelid. This is where the pink and black shadow will blend nicely together. The area where both colours meet will turn slightly purple. This is the amazing thing about this eye color duo!

6. Line your bottom lash line with the black eye shadow. Then apply pink shadow to the inner corner of the bottom lash line.

7. Define your bottom lash line with a black eyeliner pencil.

8. Curl your lashes.

9. Apply mascara base, then black mascara. Make sure you put lots of black mascara. Do not forget to apply to lower lashes as well!

10. Apply a pale pink shimmery blusher to the apples of your cheeks. The pink must be lighter then the pink eye shadow you have just used. A really sweet pale pink is recommended.

11. Apply a light pink shimmery gloss. Lipstick might be a bit severe for this look!

FINISHED! Sweet pink look with a tinge of punk.

Hope you like this look!

Love the look and you have such a flawless complexion! Have you tried setting your camera to Macro (most cameras usually depict this setting with a flower sign) for the close-up shots? That usually helps to take clearer shots up close. Also, try holding the button at half-level for a few seconds to allow the lens to auto-focus before pressing it fully to take the photo.

Hi thanks for your compliment =) I think the Sofina Beaute Whitening range is really working well for me. Really thanks for the tip about the camera! Just tried it out seems much better now!
