Young Hearts: Colorful Lids and Sakura Lips
—-
Step 1: Apply a deep chocolate brown (The Body Shop Eye Shadow #32) to the outer corners in a V shape (one leg along the lash line and one along the socket line. If you have a mono-lid, do this with your eye half open and feel for the socket line. It should be on top of your lid fold, and just visible when your eyes are open.Run along the outer halves of the lower lash line as well.
—-
Step 2: Apply a pale blue (The Body Shop Eye Shadow #17) from the gap in the brown outer V, inwards just past the center of the lids.
—-
Step 3: Fill in the inner portions of the lid with a pale gold pistachio green (The Body Shop #44)
—-
Step 4: Then use a pencil brush, run a slightly deeper blue purple like Lime Crime Twilight along the socket line from inner corner outwards in an arc until it reaches the brown at the outer corners.
—-

Step 5: Add a bit more chocolate brown if it has faded a bit from applying the pastel blue earlier.—-
Step 6: Apply black mascara and a pale white/beige/yellow pencil along the water line.
—-

The finished eye should look colorful and fun, but still light and pretty. Note that there is very little blending done. You don’t want to muddy up the colors by sweeping a big brush all over the lids area. Just make sure the border of each color sort of blends into the next.

Now, for the crazy lips!
I wanted to do a stained lip, but not something that looked like the usual red/berry on nude combination. I figured I could do 2 cool-toned pinks instead.

—-
First begin by priming your lips with a light layer of concealer in the center of the lips, around the cupids bow.

Then use a flat brush with a rounded head to pack on neon pink pigment and press it diagonally into the lip, so that you form a rough heart-shaped top. Repeat until the color builds up to a strong neon pink.
—-

You will end up with this at the end.
The harder part: Use a lip brush to carefully paint in a pale milky pink (Lime Crime Great Pink Planet or MAC Saint Germain if you are in Europe) over the rest of your lips.
—-
You can stop here if you want! But I gently topped the lips with gloss, and then smudged out the edges of the darker pink a little so it would look a little softer and more grown up.
EASY WAY OUT:
Just replace the pigment used to create the neon pink heart with a lipstick like Barry M 52 Shocking Pink or Lime Crime Countessa Fluorescent.

For delicious blackberry lips, fill in lips with a dark pink color, leaving about 1/3 on each side blank. Shade corners with deep purple, then roll lips together to blend. Blot twice for matte finish. Voila!
