So, I was really inspired by a couple of images I came across on Pinterest last week. I loved the colors and thought they would make a really cool eyeshadow look used together. I was going for something pretty/ugly, dystopian and futuristic.
And again I was feeling a Gunship song. I was really trying to capture the aura of the pictures in an eyeshadow look.
For this look I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette paired with Nyx Duo-Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavender Steel. On lips, I went with a full-on greige. If you want to see how I got this look, just keep reading below.
Good Evening! Spring has finally arrived here in Louisiana and is well on it’s way to becoming Summer so, it’s time for a seasonal edit of all the makeup I have been into thus far in Spring and what I know I will be reaching for all Summer. After this long cold Winter, I am ready for some warm weather.
I have been really into colorful looks, very vaporwave inspired. Very Miami Vice inspired with a cyberpunk futuristic twist. But I have also really been loving rose gold looks and glowy skin. I’m definitely stepping out of my coffin lately and getting more creative and loving every second of it.
I don’t really change my makeup based on the season. Like if I want to do a heavy smoky eye, I’m gonna do it. This is more a way of showing the products I have been reaching for. Like a current favorites but in a seasonal format. That being said, I enjoy the change of season and seeing the new trends, and finding ones I like and want to add to my repertoire.
Happy Friday! Is it bad I am super excited because today is my cheat day. I have already had a donut, boudin kolache and a mocha latte this morning and I am working on a Dr. Pepper. Tonight, we are going to get dinner at Ghengis which is kind of like bibimbap that you pick out everything yourself and they cook it. I have been craving it for weeks but it’s a rice-based dish so I have been saving it for a cheat day. I might get a sushi roll too!
Anyway, today I have another retro-futurism/vaporwave inspired look. This one is called Pink Mist after a Gunship song again too. I saw the image in the background on Pinterest and I was so inspired by the colors and the geometric shapes and wanted to so a look based on it. For this look, I used shades from the Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions Palette, Warm Obsessions, and Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture.
I wanted to get a little out of the ordinary with this one and bring in some more avant-garde and goth elements with a colorful neon glow. I am really having fun stepping out of the box with color and just going by what feels good and not sticking to a formula.
Good Afternoon, I hope everyone had a good weekend. I did for sure and I have a few pictures, a MOTD and an OOTD to share with ya’ll today. I meant to get this up Monday but yesterday was a complete fail. It consisted of me just trying to stay awake long enough to get back on a day schedule because I stayed up WAY too late Saturday.
