If you are not familiar with the “Inspired by…” series, click here for an explanation.
But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own.
Dressing up and awkward posing included!
As soon as I laid eyes on this picture, I knew I wanted to recreate the look. But I was facing a big problem: I did own barely any reddish eyeshadows at all. The solution? Using lipsticks, which I own in any shade of red as you might know.
So please follow my tutorial at your own risk and after careful consideration: Lipsticks are not meant to go near the eye and may cause serious irritation!
If you have been around for a while now, you may have gotten used to my “Favorite Face of…” series. Of course I cant tell whether you are bored out of your mind or looking forward to my monthly makeup ramble, but I have been meaning to keep it up.
Now I have started this month with a yearly favorites, so the “Favorite Face of…” is a little late and probably does no longer count as “December Favorites”, which is why I named it “Tutorial” for the upload on You Tube.
Not very surprising it features a soft smokey eye, using browns and a hint of violet (I feel I have been wearing barely anything else this winter), paired with either a nude or a bolder lip.
You all know the disclaimers, I am no professional, just an enthusiastic amateur, both when it comes to makeup and to videos, but I hope you enjoy nonetheless.
