Everyday 3 Minute Eyes

My go to look when I am in a rush, or just am not feeling very creative is this simple pink eye. It takes about 3 minutes and I always get compliments. All you really need is a nice light pink-peachy eyeshadow. Here are the products I used:

MAC Canton Candy Paint - You can use any nude or pinky base, I often use MAC Rubenesque Paint Pot, but whatever I see first, and apply to the entire eyelid and lightly apply to the brow bone. This will help hold the color all day. 

MAC Expensive Pink Eyeshadow - This is one of my all time favorite shadow colors. It can be used with almost any other color,  but here I applied it all over the lid with the 239. Simple as that.

MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow - I used this as the highlight on the brow bone. Any neutral highlight color can be used. 

Lancome Definicils Mascara - If you read my earlier post on mascara, you know that I always curl my lashes and apply that is exactly what I did here!

Ta-da! That's it! If you are even contemplating getting Expensive Pink, I highly recommend it. It goes on smoothly and is super blendable. It is definitely one of my must haves! I guarantee you will be able to use it in a wide variety of looks.
