My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Day 21 – Inspired by Photo

I’m stepping into the final phase of the challenge. The last 10 themes seem to be the most interesting and challenging ones.

???????????????????????????????

After looking through loads and loads of photos on the Internet, I found this one here:

The lady’s skin looks pretty smooth, matte and flawless. Her face makeup also looks very similar to my routine, so I stick to it.

Then I do my eyebrows. Their shape is nowhere close to the lady’s eyebrows, but never mind – I guess, there is no point in trying to replicate her eyebrows shape, after all, the makeup is supposed to be inspired by her photo and not to turn me completely into her.

Next I use a bright blue eyeshadow and a flat brush to contour my eye.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

I apply some darker and a slightly different shade of blue to the outer half of that contour.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

Then I use a black eye pencil for the waterline, which is not the easiest thing to do – the pencil just won’t draw on the eyeshadow. As a result, the line looks not as black as it should.

???????????????????????????????

Finally, I apply three coats of mascara and comb the lashes.

???????????????????????????????

I don’t really have such a nude lip colour, like the one the lady is wearing, plus I look better with more pinkish colours, so I choose a very light pink one.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

And that’s the look. I’m still not entirely happy with the lip colour, as I think it’s just too pale, and also my eyes don’t looks as well-defined as hers – I might have used a blue eyepencil instead of eyeshadows.
