Flower Series: Dark Dandelions Tutorial & OOTD

18 comments:
 

It's been a really long time since I created a look just for fun, but I've been playing around with my brand new Makeup Geek pigments a lot lately and they've been so inspiring. I wasn't sure where I was going with this particular look but after it was done I thought it kind of reminded me of a dandelion.  Whenever I'm bored with my looks, I love finding inspiration in flowers (Dandelions are flowers too, guys, just not very popular ones, lol). Then I thought, why not turn it into a mini series, which I also haven't done in a while. So be on the lookout for more flower inspired looks this summer!

Instead of putting all the color on the lid and doing a smokey black waterline, I tried to do something different than my usual by reversing the two. I have to say, I really love how this turned out. I don't know how wearable it is, but I think it's really beautiful.


These fabulous lashes are the Vixen lashes from FAUX lash. L.O.V.E. them! So much drama & elegance!


Don't you just love that liquid gold highlight on the inner corner!? It's so silky and easy to work with and it has (obviously) amazing color payoff. Check out the tutorial below to see it foiled in real time.


Obviously I photoshopped my eye to an amber brown that I think best suits this look, but here's how it looks with my regular blue eyes. Still beautiful, just not as much contrast.



If you like this look and want to try it out for yourself, here's the tutorial with the full list of products & steps. Enjoy!


If you want to buy any of the products seen in this video, you can visit the Makeup Geek store, FauxLash website, and Coastal Scents to pick up the products I used.


And finally, I decided to put together an outfit to wear this with so I grabbed a gorgeous blouse that I've had for years that I got from H&M. To pull from the gold on the eyes, I paired it with this beautiful, ornate necklace that I got from Christmas this year and these adorable lace shorts from ZLZ that are perfect for summer. 


I hope you loved this look and are as excited as I am to continue the series. Check back later this week for another look inspired by roses! xoxo, Meredith Jessica

  4. Gorgeous! I have Blackened Turquoise but haven't used it as an all-over lid colour before because it's so intense. Might have to give it a try now!

  9. It's the perfect combo of something that's a bit different, a bit dramatic, but still wearable.
