Hello and Welcome to my face!
I’m so excited to be sharing with all of you the Makeup Mix-up. The Makeup Mix-Up is a weekly link up hosted by Making Mrs. M & Miranda Writes – It’s a weekly themed Makeup Look Link Up. My friend Chelsie from Life with Rosie introduced me to the link up and I couldn’t be more excited! This week’s prompt was “Pinterest Pick” so my friend Chels picked this look for me- I have to admit it’s a little avantgarde for a gal like me. I typically stick to warm colors, mostly neutrals with a pop of color. Honestly- I thought Chelsie was playing a joke on me… but when I saw her expression I realized that she was serious! We went to Ulta that week and picked up the needed eye shadow colors… When I arrived at the NYX section I kind of wanted to back out; this makeup look was so out of my comfort zone. I decided to pick up a couple of the NYX single eye shadows because they are inexpensive and decently pigmented. As we looked for the right colors I felt more and more confident even though I had never ever in my life possessed a mermaid green and matte vibrant purple that I could wear bright colored eye shadows all over the lid and hopefully not look like someone right out of an 80’s yearbook.
Here’s what Chelsie picked out:
Here’s what I ame up with:
The inspiration that I took from this look was to create a purple cut crease with mermaid green lid. I knew I wouldn’t be able to blend and diffuse the colors as much as I typically would for a transition shade but I was excited to give this new look a try. Here’s the picture that Chelsie sent me and below that is was I was able to achieve. I made a few minor adjustments because I have much more lid space than the picture.
When my husband got home we decided to run to the park and snap some quick photos- apparently he never wanted to be able to live this moment down? After wearing this makeup all day- I decided what the heck let’s do it! I want to remember this makeup look as the day I decided that I can wear ANY eye shadow color. Bring it on world!
