The beauty look is inspired by a real-life, true love story. Through a rosy, glossy glow, washes of pink, intense and graduated matte stained lips, painterly brush strokes and a hand-made 3D heart, I've tried to reflect the experience of a woman basking in a romantic bliss while at the same time missing and longing for her loved one. To create glossy skin, I combined a high-shine mixing medium with a rosy liquid highlight and fuchsia cream pigment to make a translucent tinted dew. To paint the heart framing her face, I applied a pink aqua colour with fluid brushstrokes. The cloud of colour across the eyes are pink and red cream bases with vibrant matte powders blended over the top. For the lips, I put down a bright and punchy cool toned pink liner all over and then pat a pink powder pigment on top with a finger for intensity with a dab of red in the centre which I smudged out to create a romantic gradient.
