With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, let’s waste no time seeing how the touchable, kissable Valentine’s-Day-violet look I assembled earlier this week looked 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 this post in the Inspired by…Penguin Hardcover Classics series, I thought we might step away from the rosy, daytime wearability inspired by Middlemarch and hop down our own little rabbit hole with Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.
(A more expansive introduction to this series is here.)
To start, let’s take a closer look at the cover:
