When in doubt, go online
Sometimes I just don’t know what to do with makeup, today was one of those days. And when you have a blank mind I turn to my dear computer to find something nice. Which almost always brings me to my gigantic folder of pictures I have assembled over the years and my best-friend-on-uninspired-days, Google.
I’m a huge fan of Effie, her style is just so over the top and colorful that I’m almost obligated to like it. But it’s not certainly something that can be worn in our society yet ( or could it, maybe I should just try?). Case in point:
The makeup is pretty unusual but with a few tweaks it’s totally ‘wearable’ and even perfect for a day in spring as sunny as ours was. So I managed to tone it down without losing most of it’s unique vibe.
A shimmery yellow at the corner, green in the center and dark purple at the bottom lash line and the eccentric look turns into something cute and colorful without going into WTF-mode. It helped not to drag the colors all the way up to the brow also, I really doubt I would have been able to pull that off ^^. I think she will be a great source of inspiration for me in the years to come.
