In my continuing quest to find inspiration from the Spring/Summer makeup trends I came across these pictures from the Christian Dior Spring Ready to Wear show. The looks are super bright and I love the mix of old hollywood glamour with the modern colours.
This look is so easy to do and I was inspired to try out 3 different colours. I used all Sugarpill shadows and they were a hot pink matte shadow called Dollipop, a bright yellow called Buttercupcake and a shimmery green called Midori. All I did was pat the colour on to my lid and then blend out the edges. I also added the cat eye flick with some black liquid liner and used MAC Fascinating eye kohl (white) on my waterline.
My tips for pulling off this type of look are:
1. Use matte shadows- anything with a shimmer (like the green above) can end up looking quite tacky.
2. Keep the colour confined to the lid- this makes the look more wearable
3.Blend!- The blocks of colour on the Christian Dior models is one of the main reasons the makeup looks unwearable but once you blend the edges the look is instantly softened.
4. Keep the rest of the look neutral: I know this look was paired with bright lips for the show but pairing it with a neutral or nude lip makes it more everyday friendly and most important
5. Have fun with it! This is meant to be a fun look so just take it for what is and don't be so serious :)
