Flower Power 2.0

Hello Makeup Friends,

I know it has been a while since I have posted a look, but today I bring you this fun look for summer! A while back I did a look called Flower Power that became one of the favorite looks on the blog. Recently, I kept getting requests to revisit the look, and so here it is! I used a different color combo to change it up, so I would not call this an exact replica of the look, just a new interpretation of it. Read on for products used and tips:

Natural Light:

For the eyes and cheeks, I used my beloved Kryolan Viva Brilliant Color Palette :
I know this is a pro product that is not easy to purchase, but you can use any of the 88 or 120  Coastal Scents palettes .

For the face I used my Eve Pearl foundation that I constantly rave about, but folks, no matter what I try, I always come back to it! The lips were kept pretty natural, I used chap-stick and a tiny bit of clear gloss on the center.

Now for the tips:

  • When it comes to bright and colorful looks like this, it's best to just focus on one feature (in this case the eyes,) and keep the rest of the face simple. 
  • Use colors that make you look and feel prettier! For a simpler version, use your 2 favorite bright colors and line the top lid with one and the bottom with another.
  • Don't over blend! I know i'm always saying blend, blend, blend, but in this case you can't blend too much or you lose the definition of the different colors.
  • Lastly, Have fun and don't be afraid of color! Remember makeup can be wiped off at the end of the day. :)
