Feeling Flush

Pink and black go beyond punk.
Feeling Flush Pink and black go beyond punk.

A fuchsia-jet black combination may be reminiscent of the excessive '80s, but the graphic mix gets post-modernly tempered when worn with luminescent skin and a daintily pale mouth. No Debbie Harry inclinations here, too: hair is left naturally texturized with loose waves and eyeliner is a clever half-and-half of edgy and elegant.


COVER YOUR BASES
After prepping skin with tinted moisturizer, cover up problem spots with a yellow-toned concealer to completely mask flaws. A sheer dusting of loose powder mops up the grease while imparting an almost-bare finish.


WING IT
For a precise line, prop both elbows on your vanity and leave your mouth open slightly to keep from blinking (yup, backed by science indeed). Removing any excess product, start lining from the inner corners of the eyes, slowly thickening towards the outer corners. Keep the line as close to the lashes as possible or color in any negative space with a q-tip. Resist smudging to keep the look clean and fresh, and leave the lower lashline bare. A couple of coats of black mascara opens up the whole eye area.


TICKLED PINK
Carnation pink blush, though ridiculously Barbie-looking, is surprisingly flattering when worn. The bright pink perks up a tired face and provides a gentle offset against stark eyes, making the allover look more fashion-forward than childishly punk. Mimic a virginal flush by lightly dusting blush on the whole fleshy part of cheeks, maintaining a light hand. Darker gals can opt for a warmer shade, or can layer an extra sweep of rouge on the apples of cheeks for a more suggestive glow.


KEEP IT LIGHT
Practice restraint: lip balm is enough for lips and a hairsprayed toothbrush is enough for the brows. The trick is to look effortlessly pulled-together, like rolling out of bed looking like a video vixen is, well, just an everyday thing.
