It is exactly one week until it’s officially spring and while that saddens me ( I wish it could be winter forever) it does give me a chance to create some fun, vibrant, seasonal makeup looks! After being in a bit of a blogging slump I came across some beautiful, floral makeup on Pinterest. Honestly, the talent some people have is unreal. Anyway, this inspired me to create a spring sunflower makeup look!
For my base, I kept it the same as my everyday makeup. The eyes are the main focus of this look.
- I primed my eyes using the Urban Decay Original Primer Potion. I could never be without this primer.
- For my transition shade, I used ‘Baja’ from the Urban Decay Born to Run palette and blended this up to my brow bone.
- I then used the red shade in the bottom right-hand corner of the Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions palette and applied this to my outer corners and crease.
- Next, I took a tiny bit of foundation and a small, flat brush to carefully cut my crease.
- I then used the stunning ‘Nubia’ shade from the Juvia’s Place Magic Palette and applied this all over my lid.
- For my lower lash line, I used both ‘Baja’ and ‘Nubia’.
- To highlight my inner corners and brow bone I used the shade ‘Unicorn’ from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dream Glow Kit.
- I applied a couple of coats of the Benefit BADgal BANG Mascara to finish off.
- Using a Spectrum C06 brush I applied the ‘Good as Gone’ brown shade from the Born to Run palette to where I wanted the sunflowers to be.
- with a tiny, stiff brush I used the shade ‘Baja’ to carefully go around the brown to soften the edges.
- Lastly, I dipped a Spectrum A19 brush into the shade ‘Edge’ from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette to draw the petals. For this, I started at the base of the brown shade and flicked the brush outward.
- For my lips, I used one of my favourite lipsticks for spring which is The Body Shop liquid lipstick in the shade ‘Cyprus Begonia’.
