Earlier this week, I sat right down to placed on make-up and…after an awkwardly lengthy pause and “Hmm…” realized I’m majorly missing in inspiration. The proverbial make-up “nicely” hath runneth bone dry.
My creativity wants a lift, so I discovered a stack of Attract mags and bookmarked a number of seems, beginning with the one on this Estée Lauder lipstick advert.
I’m getting a really ’80s vibe, and it’s working for me! The daring, shiny pink assertion lip; large shoulder pads; the large jewellery. Signal me up!
- The sheen on her interior lids
- The sturdy liner on her higher lash line and the outer half of her decrease lash line
- Her Brooke Shields brows!
I additionally love the dearth of heavy-handed bronzer and “highlights from house.”
Additionally, you may additionally discover that the mannequin’s eye make-up isn’t completely symmetrical, and it’s attention-grabbing and refreshing to me that she isn’t Photoshopped into a totally symmetrical model of herself, since ultra-symmetrical eye make-up has dominated social media for therefore lengthy. It’s cool, and I hope to see this extra typically.
It is a very dressy make-up look and possibly not one thing I’d put on out and about proper now, however I do adore it. I nonetheless would possibly strive one thing related simply to put on round the home.
Subsequent, up — the make-up on this Lancôme advert with a really “Starvation Video games” Zendaya. I see you channeling Katniss Everdeen together with your bow and arrow, woman!
“I volunteer as tribute!”
And might we take a second to admire her brows? I’m actually into bold-but-soft arches proper now.
I additionally just like the liner on this look. There’s a skinny wisp of it on her lash strains. (I’m guessing it’s pencil?) See how the liner hugs her decrease lash line tightly however doesn’t spill over onto her waterline? I believe that’s simply beautiful. I additionally like how outlined however not overly crisp it’s. The sides are softened only a contact with some golden bronze eyeshadow.
I like her cheeks, too, with their barely-there trace of peachy tan bronzer and blush. There are delicate highlights on her higher cheek bone and beneath the arch of her forehead, and I like how they’re blended. They don’t simply seem like shimmery stripes on her pores and skin.
After which there’s her lip shade, that nude pink with a little bit shine, to spherical out the look.
This entire factor is one thing I’d need to put on in on a regular basis life!
This final look under is just like my present make-up aesthetic — after I put on it, ha! — apart from her brows. Hers are a little bit too daring for me, however every little thing else, I dig. I really like the shine on her lids and the peek of shade on the outer nook within the interior nook. Every little thing is mixed so nicely and seamlessly, too! I’m guessing the artist went with lotions.
Love the contemporary, dewy pores and skin as a result of it’s simply shy of shiny. It additionally doesn’t seem like she has a lot on her cheeks in any respect, and I’m loving that.
Additionally completely into her lipstick, which matches her gums! I believe it seems so pure.
I hope a few of these concepts encourage you want they’re inspiring me. I don’t know the way it’s been for you recently, however each time I put some make-up on, I really feel like I’m carrying…a number of make-up. Possibly I’ll need to put on a full face once more sometime, however with every little thing nonetheless happening, I’m nowhere near that proper now!
In the event you’d prefer to, please share what make-up you’re into today. I’d love to listen to about it.
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
