a recreation of the makeupforever winter look, 2011 — when I saw it, I knew I had to try it. I’ve never paired greens and golds together before, and its unexpectedly lovely.
The face was very glowy; I used MAC Strobe Cream, Neutrogena Healthy Skin (60, Natural Beige), and highlighted with the best highlighter ever, Dior Amber Diamond. Cheeks were peachy and natural; I used ELF’s Peachykeen. It didn’t really show up in pictures, unfortunately :(
The eyes had a really pretty peachy gold blended into a blackened olive green, with a medium brown in the crease. I used: All over the lid: Michael Todd’s Long Wear Creme Shadow in Vacation Bronze, MUFE #306 in Beige Diamond (this was taken up to the brow). Outer-V: Shiro Cosmetic’s Sudowoodo, mixed in with MUFE 307 to darken, especially at the lashline. Crease: Urban Decay’s Buck.
I intentionally skipped the intense liner on the bottom lashline only because my eyeshape really doesn’t suit it — there’s no real depth in my eye socket, and so it would kind of highlight that and give me a bug eye effect. Instead, I lined my lower lashline with Stila Smudgestick in Moray, and patted on a white shadow (MUFE 07) into the inner corner, mostly along the bottom lashline.
Surprisingly, for all my love for peach lips, I had nothing in my collection that resembled the lip in the diagram, so I had to improvise. The lipstick was a combination of Revlon Soft Nude and MAC Mocha (more the latter than the first), lined gently with Rimmel’s Addiction. On top I finished with Revlon Colorburst Sunset Peach Lipgloss.
Overall, I’m quite happy with this look :) I hope the lighting worked out well too, and I hope you will be inspired to try it out as well.
