I’ve you’ve been an avid reader of this blog for a while you must’ve noticed I usually take it pretty simple regarding make-up and am not the first in line to experiment with bold colors. However, this past weekend I suddenly felt inspired by the blossoming little greens and flowers everywhere and thought why not use blush as eye shadow (I know, revolutionary thought!) – also: have you read my spring fashion edit already?
I kept my base natural and pretty easy (updated foundation routine coming your way soon!) and got funky on the lids. First of, I applied Nectar from my Lorac Pro 2 palette all over the lids, then went in with my Sephora blush in 17 Orange Pop generously in the crease and blended everything out with my favourite blush Peony by Bobbi Brown. A few coats of my brown Maybelline Colossal mascara and there we have it.
On the lips I tried a Sephora Kiss Me Balm in Soda Pop, a very hydrating and pigmented little lip balm – this one is wandering into my handbag right away.
It’s definitely out there, but I kind of like the finished look much to my surprise. What do you think? Any shades you’ve recently been discovering?
