A Fantasy of FlowersWednesday, January 15, 2014
Because flowers remind me not just of the new season, but also of self-giving and love. If I could have powers in my hands, I would be to spread flowers.
Eyebrow: MAC Brow Mascara Girl & Boy
Eye Shadow: MAKEUP FOREVER Arty Blossom Palette & Laura Mercier Renaissance Palette
Eye Color (lower): Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Color in Metallic Sunrise
Highlighter: MAC A Fantasy of Flowers Mineralize Skin Finish Perfect Topping
Contour: Stila Bronzing Palette
Lipstick: Laura Mercier Rich Creme Lipstick
Falsies: Red Cherry Lashes
Translucent Powder: NARS Crystal Light Reflecting Powder
I wanted a natural-looking but full lashes. I recently discovered a good lashes brand from USA called Red Cherry which I got from Digital Traincase at the Super Sale Bazaar.
To put a little bit of drama, I placed a lining on the lower part of my eyes, extending up to the upper par to also lift my eyes and make it more alive.
For the face, I used a lot of highlighters, illuminating powders and fresh contouring palettes to make my skin look fresh and well, blossoming as well. I used a pastel pink color to keep the look soft and romantic.
The key to in achieving this look? Use illuminating and highlighting pigments and powders with transparent and semi-metallic textures. All the brands I mentioned had that but MAC especially built an entire collection based on this - the name of which I entitled to this blog post.
Available this March 2014 (already at counters!), "magical fantasy emerges glowing with a floral essence. Rose-coloured hues burst from lustrous Lipstick, while a heavenly hybrid of Mineralize Eye Shadows blossoms with natural splendour. Cheeks are kissed with the graceful glow of Mineralize Blush, and vivid pops of colour flourish as Fluidline and Nail Lacquer bring this flowery fantasia to life."Below are my top picks - especially the lipsticks and Mineralize products (I love their highlighters!)
How do you like my look? Here's some music and video to remind us of flowers (see the part where Katy blossoms with lots of them) and well, of love, that is unconditional, which is also my fantasy.
