Doopdadoo, business as usual around here…
I’m delighted I provided this look a try, even though I don’t believe I look almost as great as the woman I based it on from Nylon magazine…

The original inspiration
Seriously, I look like I just grew a second pair of eyebrows, LOL! — purple glittery sparkly eyebrows, though. Which are lovely in their own way, right? Maybe?


Hello, glitter
So this is what I came up with for my very first look based on the bookmarks as well as Post-It notes I did in those magazines the other day. I’m providing myself 30 days to recreate different looks that are out of my comfort zone, as well as this was one from Nylon with a sparkly minimalist purple cut crease.

Before I started, I spent a few solid minutes just looking carefully at the model, as well as right here are the things that jumped out at me (other than her purple cut crease)…

Her big, strong fluffy brows, which look pushed up as well as out toward the inside, where the hairs are super separated as well as defined.

Her skin, which looks a bit dewy. There’s some highlight action reflecting off the center of her forehead, her nose as well as under her eyes, however it’s not an intense highlight.

The laundry of nude color on her lids. It appears like there’s likewise a super skinny brown liner line along her upper lash line.

Her lips. I question if that’s her natural lip color. If it is, lucky duck! It’s beautiful. It appears like she may be using a just-right balm since it doesn’t look as well creamy or shiny or heavy or matte. I’m guessing it’s a lip liner-lip balm combo.

With these things in mind, I rifled with my makeup collection as well as came up with this sparkly, glittery cut crease.

At that point, I still desired more sheen on specific areas (under my eyes, on my nose as well as in the middle of my forehead), so I tapped a bit bit of RMS beauty Living Luminizer, a creamy pearl highlighter, on those exact same areas.
