What you'll need

What you'll do

  1. Start by applying your regular base makeup. This could be a clear face or foundation and lipgloss. But no blush — we're moving the pretty pink glow from your cheeks to your eyes.
  2. This style looks pretty accented with black. If you'd like, line your eyes lightly with black eyeliner and coat your top and bottom eyelashes with one layer of black mascara.
  3. Now you're ready to halo your eyes! Load your blush brush with more blush than you'd usually use. Planting the brush straight down into the blush, dip several times until the color looks bold.
  4. Pat the blush under and around your eye. Start where you'd put undereye concealer, move to the edge of your eye right above your cheek bone, then move along the eyelid, filling in beneath your eyebrow.
  5. Repeat a second time if you'd like a darker, bolder look, and then follow the same steps on your other eye. Now you're officially pretty in pink!
