Minty Pink Tutorial

Hey, remember my Minty Pink look from last week?  I finally got around to editing photos for the tutorial, so, here you go!  I'm going to try something a little different this time, I've compiled all the tutorial photos into a step-by-step collage.  Let me know what you think...if you find this method more useful or if you prefer the way I've done this before.

Step 1
  • Starting with primed eyelids, I apply a soft, matte mint shade to my entire top and bottom eyelid.
Step 2
  • Next, I apply black pencil liner to the outer corners of my upper and lower lash lines
Step 3
  • Using a deep, espresso shade, I layer over the pencil eyeliner, being sure to thoroughly smudge and smoke the shadow along my outer corners.
Step 4
  • With a medium brown shade, I blend out the area I just smoked to soften the edges.
Step 5
  • I draw a modest winged line along my upper lash line with black gel eyeliner.
Step 6
  • Curl lashes, apply mascara, and I'm done!
*note* These colors are fairly common and you can use them from any brand.  I chose mine from Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette (now on sale for $9.48!) because I prefer my shadows to be on the matte side. :)

For lips, I applied ELF Mineral Lipstick in Runway Pink and then glossed over it with ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Perfect Pink.

I finished off by brushing ELF Studio Blush in Pink Passion to my cheeks:

Overall look?  Minty fresh! :D

Hope you all enjoyed the tutorial and I look forward to your feedback!  Enjoy your Thursday!  (I'll be stuck in class until 10pm tonight, however...boohoo!)



  1. This look is so cute!

    I like the tutorial in a collage like this, it has a clean look.

    1. Thank you, and thanks for the feedback. I kinda like it as well. PLUS, if you're into Pinterest, it makes for a very pin-able photo tutorial! :D

  2. I love the look, really bright and fresh.
    I don't really mind how you place the pictures. They usually speak for themself, but maybe this method is easier (if you don't need the text, you can skip it more easily than with the other method). Either way, it works perfectly fine :)

    1. Thank you! :) Yes, it seems like this kind of format makes the entire tutorial easier at a glance. :D

  3. wow! love it!!
