I made this look with 2 of my favourite brands: Sugarpill and MakeUp Geek. I also adore my Sleek makeup palettes so they bascially share a top 3 together.
My initial idea was to stay with the orange, pink and plummy colours from my MakeUp Geek pigments but then I added some colours from my Sugarpill Heartbreaker palette and well… that’s when things became rainbow…ish.
The MakeUp Geek pigments are Afterglow, Enchanted and a bit of New Years Eve.
I really like the combination of colours I used under the eye: Sugarpill Olivia, Mochi and Velocity. It’s not a load of colour but it’s enough to stand out. And I used Sugarpill’s Asteria on the moving lid and Poison Plum and 2AM in the crease and Diamond Eyes under the brow.
This time I didn’t use any eyeliner, I used black eyeshadow at the lashline and I really like that effect. It’s a lot more smokey. 🙂
I didn’t use a lot of colour on the lips, figured I’d keep those light for a change. I like dark lips and dark eyes but I can make the whole look a bit “much”, don’t you think?
I really loved working with so many colours again. What do you think, do you like this look? With what lip colour would you have paired it?

Hey folks! I wanted to update a lot sooner this year but a lot came up that needed my attention more. I moved to a different location at work and that’s been draining a lot of my energy. My grandmother also passed away last week so obviously my mind was elsewhere after that. These things still take up a lof of my time so I don’t know when I’ll be making new looks.
However, I stil have some old looks on my computer and I really wanted to show these so bit by bit I’m putting together these blogposts. Just be a little patient and I’ll get back into the blogging mood as soon as possible.
So, on to this look! A long time ago, longer than I had planned to put this look online, I saw *this* look by Heather Makeup Mouse. She did such a great job with that TARDIS look and I really liked the colours she used. I’m not very good at the detailed drawing in my makeup looks so I decided to try and capture the same colours she used, but a little more “wearable for every day”. I hope you like the result.
Thanks for the inspiration, Heather!
I found this picture on Pinterest and I thought the colours were beautiful, colourful and rich but very natural at the same time because of the brown.
I decided to make a makeup look inspired by this little cutie from Guatamala. It’s called a Quetzal, by the way. Isn’t he adorable? He has a mohawk!
I made this look some time ago and I wanted to put the blogpost together in my nightshifts. But apparently the browsers in old computers at my work can get so terrible crappy that WordPress simply refused to cooperate. After nightshifts I was completely beat up and needed all my energy for simple life stuff. So the blog thing just had to wait.
I might even have quiet times like this more often because lately my heart isn’t entirely into makeup. I’m just struggling with this winter depression thing and even though it’s not as bad as it used to be the previous years, I like to focus on other things right now.
Enough blabla, here’s the look I came up with.
Some time ago I pinned this picture om one of my Pinterest boards. Isn’t he beautiful?
I thought this cute little guy has the most beautiful colours and somehow I thought of all Sugarpill colours.
So of course that’s what I used for this look.I’ve been doing so many glittery and shimmery looks lately that it was a nice change to do something that was entirely matte.
See the rest of this entry to see how the look worked out.
