Hey my little Brushaflies and welcome back to my blog, Brushafly Mua 🦋 Today’s blog post is about a recent playful makeup look I created, inspired by the one and only ‘Skittles’… Yes I’m talking about the sweet brand skittles lol. I saw something similar either on Instagram or Pinterest when I was looking for makeup video inspiration and came across someone who done a skittles inspired look. I cannot remember the original picture I saw as I went on to see quite a few, but I thought it looked really fun and wanted to have a go myself lol. So this is how in ended up looking…
I know it looks rather crazy but that is what I wanted I guess lol.
My idea was kind of based on those images you get of light reflecting or refracting (not sure what the correct term is lol) and creating a rainbow look. I used a more vibrant palette of colours around my eye area side, and more glittery shimmer yet pastel shades on my cheek side of the rainbow. I don’t know why but I just liked the idea of the more glittery pastel side being more shimmery and the other side being more bright.
Does it work as a look?
Hell, I don’t know 😂 but I sure did have fun creating it haha. I loved using the bright colours to create the rainbow, I liked the skittles on my face and eating the rest… Nom…nom… And I liked the wing Eye liner look too… That was impressive for me and my skill set.
Would I change anything?
Maybe I would have used the brights all over instead of the pastel shimmers on one side. But otherwise I like it, its crazy lol.
