Rainbow and Fire

I don’t really spend all that much time on naming the makeup looks I come up with… And that’s not because I come up with brilliant names instantaneously. No no, I am simply too lazy and impatient. That could be a wrong strategy, after all, a catchy name gives the look somewhat of an additional layer of creativity. Hmm, I should perhaps change my strategy…

Anyway, today’s looks are called “Rainbow” and “Fire”. Not very original, I hear you! It’s just instant  association – my mind associates a certain image with e certain word, and once that happens, the name sort of sticks.

Rainbow doesn’t really consist of ALL the colours of the rainbow, but as it turned out pretty colourful, that was my first association. I really wanted to do something with green and pink, I think it is a beautiful combination :)…and that was the outcome:



I was very keen on using the Chartreuse (Ben Nye) pigment; it is such a lovely grass colour, not very dark..with a hint of yellow. Then I got really inspired to pair it up with the MUG eyeshadow Simply Marlena (gorgeous pink!)…and then I got so excited I couldn’t fall asleep for a while. Yes, I think about makeup before I fall asleep (or recipes for baking cakes for that matter, but that calls for a different blog post!). Sometimes, I even dream of it 🙂 Believe me, that is better, than dreaming about my PhD!

The second look, Fire, was also born last night (at least the idea for it). It combines yellow, orange and red/purple. It was mainly inspired by my idea to use the Barry M Dazzle Dust in Burnt Orange, splendid colour! That is how it turned out:

I had a lot of fun creating Rainbow and Fire today (and so did my husband, upon seeing me with two differently made up eyes :)). I hope you enjoy them too, and they inspire you to play with your makeup collection.

Have a great weekend!
