My Anemone inspired look.
Did you know there are more than 150+ species of Anemone!?
Hi everyone! Happy Monday! It rained most of last week here, and I'm itching for sunny weather. I decided to post this spring flower inspired makeup tutorial to brighten my day (and hopefully yours too). Anemone are such beautiful flowers. I love how they have so much variation in size, style, color. I also love how they are so simple in composition but can have intricate differences in shades. While researching for this tutorial, I had a hard time deciding on what color to pick because there are so many. My local farmers market has some of the best flowers, and it was almost impossible to pick only one bunch of these gorgeous flowers.
The products I used! All by Sugarpill Cosmetics.
1. After applying primer, I put a base of MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot.
2. Then I applied Sugarpill Weekender ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadow on the lid.
3. Then I took Tako, a white matte pressed eyeshadow by Sugarpill, and used it at the bottom of the lid and sweeped to the corners near the tear ducts.
4. I brushed Poison Plum, a deep violet pressed eyeshadow with slight shimmer, creating a faux crease.
5. I bring Poison Plum to the outer corners of my eye creating a long 7 shape from the corner of the eye over the lid.
6. Blend, blend, blend. Bring down Tako to the lower lashline.
7. Using a black eyeliner, I line the waterline and do a soft cat eye towards the outer corners.
8. I smudge the black pencil down to the outer third of the lower lashline.
9. I used Maybelline Unstoppable Highlighter in Fluffy Cloud, a matte white, to line the inner corner of the lower waterline.
10. Mascara and eyebrows! I am using Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill.
You are done! A spring inspired purple eye.
I would wear this look in the day time. Or maybe if I'm lucky enough, on a date with my hubs.
