I was in the mood to mess around the other day. How unlike me. I’m loving the trend for orange and coral tones in makeup at the moment and I wanted to take that to a wearable extreme. I know a lot of people wouldn’t really call this look “wearable” but wear it, I did. I went into London and swanned around Soho with these circus colours on my eyes.
The peach and the orange were mixed together and went through the crease. The pink went through the brow bone, over the mobile lid and along the lower lash line. I didn’t use any liner at all. I didn’t want it to look that “done”. I just piled on loads of mascara.
For the cheeks I put on some Nars Multiple in Cannes and then I mixed a few lipsticks together to pull the look together. It was Elf Rosy Tan with a punch of pink and coral. I wanted it to be fairly neutral but it needed the same tones as the eyes or else I was at risk of looking like a complete Picasso.
This definitely isn’t a look a lot of people would wear for fear of not looking truly “beautiful” but I think it’s fun to play and to see how far you can push things. I felt more beautiful that day because I was brave enough to go out with all these bright colours and not look like everyone else.
