"The make-up should preferably:
-Open my otherwise tired eyes
-Glitter or shimmer (almost like my eyes belong to the snow)
-Be a nice complement to my green / yellow eyes
-Do not focus on the lower lash line too much
Actually, I do not know what color I should say that I want .. that is, among other things, what I need help with. For the first time this year (have had children), my boyfriend and I will get to come out ourselves. We are going to a winter wedding! Already now I start planning hair and makeup even though it is "only" one of my best friends who is getting married (would be more understandable if I were the bride…) On 7/12 it's time and we hope for lots of snow that day .
My dress is in the red-purple direction (see link). I would describe my hair color as a warm blonde color with a faint red tone, which makes the hair look a little golden in direct light. My eyes are dark green at the end and are met by a mottled green / brown / yellow color from the pupil. Very difficult to explain but my eyes have a rather special color and I have a hard time finding colors and make-up that suit my eyes well. The most intense part of my eye is around the pupil but it is still very green so from a distance the eye looks green and at close range it looks almost golden brown.
So want a make-up that can lift both eyes and dress and fit the hair.
I have been trying to learn how to handle eyeliner / eyeliner for several years without success. It looks good on the eyelid but I think I look strange if you mark the lower lash line too much. Think it's nice with a little but not too black ..
This almost became an essay (as you can see, my head is full of thoughts about this) but I hope you have the time to read, and if you feel like it, give an interpretation of what you think may suit me!
Thanks in advance and thanks for an inspiring blog! ”
Descriptive words: Focus on just the eyelid, For everyday I only use mascara, Green, Purple, Gold.
Oh how wonderful it sounded, and how nice with a proper description too!
To emphasize your eyes, you need a cold purple make-up. Cold shades emphasize the yellow-brown while purple emphasizes the green.
I also like your proposal with gold, nice for your hair and for the dress!
So I have combined all the details into one and the same make-up that I hope you like. It may be that my make-up will feel too dark on you because you do not usually put on so much make-up everyday, but in such cases just skip the black shade and the look will be much lighter :)
The light shadows in the make-up shimmer nicely, and I thought that the white shimmery would be nice and "snowy" for you (though difficult to capture in picture) But if you want even more shimmer and glitter, buy yourself a glitter eyeliner and lay along the lower lash line, Viva la Diva's new should be good :)
All shadows are from iMys 88 Palette.
The "burgundy purple brown" shade on the lower left that I have used, becomes more burgundy purple on the eyelid if you use an eyeshadow primer. I use Lumene's primer!
1. White shimmery eye shadow innermost on the eyelid and in the corner of the eye.
2. Golden eye shadow in the middle of the eyelid.
3. Wine red-purple eye shadow outer on the eyelid and along the globe line.
4. Blur the edges.
5. Black eye shadow along the upper lash line and smoked at the end of the eyelid and along the crease line.
6. White eyeliner along the waterline, IsaDora Inliner Kajal (50 Satin White)
And more white shadow along the lower lash line.
7. Black mascara on the upper lashes, Lumene Cloudberry Volume Serum Mascara.
Bright lips with golden shimmer, Peggy Sage Lipstick (Beige Rose) and gloMinerals gloGloss (Rose Gold)
Hope you have a great time at the wedding, and feel super good-looking!
