Do you ever find yourself getting bored of repeating the same makeup looks all the time? I always find I settle into a pattern of how I do my makeup, stick with it for a few weeks then switch it out for something completely different. Right now I’m embracing my rainbow side with weird and wonderful lipsticks and I recently bought the Urban Decay Full Spectrum eyeshadow palette which I’ve been enjoying playing around with.
I’ve been using the yellow shade Calavera on the inside of my lid with a little bit of Goldine (yellow shimmer) over it, and Gossip on the outer corner of my eyes blended up to my eyebrow. For liner I used the shade Sketch with a wet brush which applies so nicely! A wet brush really makes the colours stand out and last longer.
For under my eye, I blended Blindsided into the eyeliner with a wet brush and also used Hatter and Mean for the inner corner greens.
What I really like about this look is that it’s easy to wear. I’m a strong advocate of wear whatever the hell you want whenever the hell you want but sometimes in the daytime doing a wacky, completely out there look is just too much effort to try and work. This is an easy way of doing something a bit different as it takes barely any time at all (and I am a lazy, lazy person).
Apparently I have the inability to pull a serious face in photos. Who knew?
To finish the look, I’ve been using NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome which has fast become my daily lipstick – it’s the closest thing to a nude you’ll ever see me in and I love the formula. However, I’ve really been enjoying playing around with colour recently – I did this look with a blue lip using Kat Von D’s Poe and really enjoyed it.
Other products used are Benefit’s Goof Proof Brow Pencil in shade 5, Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation in shade Ivory and a touch of Nyx’s translucent finishing powder.
