Navy and pink is one of my favourite colour combinations in clothing, so hey, why not try it with my makeup? This was an interesting experiment for me. The cat eye swoops lower than I usually do it, and it probably could benefit from some false lashes. I’m still not 100% sold on this look, but I hope it is helpful for those of you who want to try it.

Get the Look
For the eyes, apply a wash of shimmery beige (MAC All That Glitters) all over the lid. Using a fluffy blending brush (MAC 217), take a matte warm medium brown (MAC Soft Brown) and blend into the crease. To create depth, layer a matte taupe (MAC Coquette) over the medium brown. Bring the taupe to the outer corners and up slightly. For the fun part, get your favourite creamy black eyeliner pencil (Annabelle Ohmygoth!) and start with a rough line on your upper lashes. Take your time to smudge the line to your liking, and also extend the shape to the outer corners and up. Line the lower waterline and smudge the line to your lash lines. Once you have your desired shape, go over the lines with a matte navy (Annabelle B-Ray). Also blend slightly above the line for a slight blue gradient. Line your waterlines, and add mascara (Marcelle Power Volume mascara).
For the cheeks, add a pop of matte pink to the apples of your cheeks (MAKE UP FOR EVER #112 Warm Pink). Contour the hollows of your cheeks with a deep matte brown (MAKE UP FOR EVER #17 Espresso). Highlight the top of the cheekbones with a shimmery peachy pink (MAC Shell Pearl beauty powder).
For the lips, go for a nude pink lipstick (Chanel Ming Rouge Allure Laque).
