For a grown-up take on pink, try this shimmery-eyed, rosy cheek look

When asked about their earliest makeup memories, many beauty fans confess to beginning their journeys in the aisle of pink. Soft, rosy hues aren’t just attractive — they’re easy to wear on your eyes, cheeks and lips. Today’s pink hues are a lot warmer than their previous counterparts, and eye shadow finishes have evolved as well.
For a romantic, rosy glow, combine warm shades of peach and pink on your eyes and lips. Skip the black liner, and opt for dark brown for a more natural appearance. For a cohesive look, apply your blush below your lower lashes, too. It will pull all the colors together for a seamless result.

Instructions
1. Prepare the eye area by applying eye shadow primer with a flat concealer brush. Pat your entire eye area with the brush to eliminate any brush marks.
2. Sweep matte peach eye shadow along the crease of your eye and onto the outer corner of the lid with a blending brush. Tip: Holding the skin taut will ensure the pigment is applied evenly and precisely.
3. Pat warm pink shimmer eye shadow onto your lid and near the tear duct with a shading brush.
4. Draw a short, diagonal line from the outer corner of your lid up toward the tail of your brow with liquid eyeliner. Draw a second diagonal line above it to create a small triangle. Fill in the triangle, and line the entire upper lash line as well.
5. Apply black mascara to your upper lashes.
6. Hold the false lashes with the tweezers, and apply a small amount of lash glue onto the lash band. Let the glue set for 10 seconds, then apply the lashes just above your upper lashes.
7. Brush eyebrow cream on your brows with the angled brush.
8. Gently massage illuminating makeup primer into your skin with your fingers.
9. Apply foundation to your skin in downward strokes using a foundation brush.
10. Apply light-colored concealer below your eyes, above your Cupid’s bow, along the bridge of your nose and on the center of your forehead and chin. Press the product into your skin with a flat-topped buffing brush.
11. Use a powder brush to apply setting powder to the center of your forehead and below your eyes.
12. Give your complexion a kiss of color by sweeping rosy pink blush onto your cheeks with a cheek brush.
13. Bring light to your features by applying golden copper highlighter above your cheekbones and brows with a tapered brush.
14. Apply rosy pink blush below your lower lashes with the shading brush.
15. Apply mascara to your lower lashes.
16. Give your lips a glossy finish by applying shimmering rose nude lip gloss with a lip brush.
