This tutorial is as easy as 1-2-3…and you can achieve this soft, romantic, berry-driven look in just five minutes. To find out how to get a soft, gorgeous romantic makeup look,
To achieve the eye makeup:
1. You will need a soft, shimmering palette of beige-browns for your eyes. I used Covergirl’s “Shimmering Sands” palette, which is one of my favorite drugstore eyeshadow palettes for a super soft, natural eye look. The shades come out very soft, and they have a light shimmer to them, making it ideal for looks with strong lips, as well.
2. Apply the lightest shade, a shimmering beige, to the inner corners of your eyes, up to your brow bone. Apply the middle shade, which is just barely darker than the shimmering beige over your entire eyelid, just to the crease. Very lightly, using a fluffy blending brush, apply the darkest shade lightly into the crease and outer corner of your eye, using sweeping motions to blend. The contouring will be very subtle in this look, since the eyes are soft, and romantic looking.
3. Curl your eyelashes and apply your favorite mascara.
To achieve the cheeks:
1. Apply a berry-pink blush to the apples of your cheeks for a soft, candlelit glow. I also used Hard Candy’s Moon Glow Luminizing Powder to give my skin a soft, candlelit glow. For my cheeks, I used New York Color “Cherry Blossom,” from their Berry Blooms Collection.
To achieve the lips:
1. Use a berry-purple shade on your lips for a romantic, classic look. I personally used Rimmel’s “Amethyst Shimmer” lipstick. To get a truly long-lasting and pigmented lip, I used concealer on my lips to completely nude them out. Then, I applied loose powder onto my lips for an extremely dry, matte, nude lip to start with. This gives the truest, most pigmented color to lipstick, and it also allows your lipstick to last longer. The lips are what help to make this look appear very classic and romantic.
Viola! You’ve got soft, feminine berry-inspired makeup that screams romance, and it’s all done for under $20!
