I’m still looking at a lot of snow outside my window, so I thought it would be nice to show you how one of the cherries-in-the-snow looks I proposed a few days ago ended up looking on my face!
With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, how tempted was I to put together some soft, romantic pink makeup? Oh….so tempted. I love those kinds of looks. That said, so many talented youtubers and bloggers are putting together gorgeous, romantic pink looks that I thought I might try something a little different: soft, easy, approachable Valentine’s Day looks featuring the color violet.
Recently we looked at a few color products that I thought would make a pretty, wearable day look, inspired by Beatrix Potter (and the lovely roxina at Makeupalley).
After pulling together a casual weekend look and a slightly more polished day look, I wanted to take things in an evening direction for this third and final look in a series inspired by the first-edition cover of Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies.
For the second look in this series inspired by Beatrix Potter and The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies (an inspiration suggested by the lovely roxina), I thought we could step things up a bit and try a look that I’d like to imagine wearing at a sunny garden tea-party, or wearing while I skip off to a lovely picnic in a sunny meadow on an early-spring day with a basket over my arm, like our bunny friend here…
On the makeup board at Makeupalley, the lovely roxina–no doubt referencing my MUA handle–suggested that it might be fun for me to try a look inspired by The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies, by Beatrix Potter. I actually found this color scheme really inspiring–thank you, roxina, for the suggestion! In this post, I put together a casual makeup look that I hope would be simple and easy to wear, but still polished and pretty.
For the second look inspired by the notion of cherries in the snow, I wanted to build a look around the lippie that so many of us think of when we think of cherry-reds: Tom Ford Cherry Lush.
Hi everyone. Thanks for dropping in! In this post, I’m going to show you how one of the looks I proposed for the Northanger Abbey-inspired cover came out on my face!
Hi everyone. By the time you read this, the Northeast U.S. will be blanketed in a fresh layer of snow. All this frosty white has gotten the phrase “cherries in the snow” stuck in my head. To try to work it back out again, I composed a few looks from my stash inspired by that idea, but with an emphasis on face-flattery and real-life wearability, instead of fantasy frost (fun as that is!).
(A more expansive introduction to this series is here.)
Hi everyone. I hope those of you who live in cold climates in the Northern Hemisphere are warm and cozy today! As I write this, another storm is brewing in the Northeastern U.S.
