Hope you have enjoyed your weekend and some Sun…I sure did!
So before the World Cup officially starts next week, I’d like to show you a makeup look I did yesterday…I wasn’t really aiming for it to be related to the event or Brazil in any way, but once I asked my husband what he thought of it, he exclaimed: “Oh wow! WC-inspired makeup!”…Well, ok then 🙂 Normally I am not a big football fan…Champion leagues and local competitions do not spark the slightest bit of interest in me. Funny enough though, during European and World Cups, I transform into the the world’s most dedicated, fanatic viewer…I follow all the matches and curse worse than the men around me 😛 Go figure! I guess it’s this feeling of togetherness that I really enjoy….just different nations getting together peacefully to play football.
And the makeup look:
Now let me show you my awesome butterfly ring…to match the green in my makeup 🙂 A present from my sweet mommy, this ring goes together with a bracelet in the same pattern. Pretty, right?
I used a couple of my most favourite pigments lately, from Darling Girl Cosmetics and Concrete Minerals. Ah, it is such a shame I cannot capture the dual beauty of Ermahgerd!, the most stunning pastel orange which shifts into lime green..No words! It was love at first sight (so much that I actually ordered another dose of it, just to make sure I have enough of it, in case Darling Girl Cosmetics stop making it hahaha). Next to it, I placed Dirty Limercick…lime green which has a turquoise sheen. In the outer V, I used Swamped from Concrete Minerals – a gorgeous swamp-y green with sprakles. To top it of and add just a pop of gold, I used one of the most insanely concentrated pigments ever: Liquid Gold from Makeup Geek. Liquid Gold has a slightly green undertone, so I thought it complemented this look really nicely. I also used my green KIKO mascara on the bottom lashes, can you see?
To be honest, I really loved the end result..the colours and the way the duochromes shift into each other ❤ What do you think?
I wish you a wonderful week, and if you, like me, are a football fan: enjoy the WC adventure!!!
