Spring is here and Coachella is right around the corner. Although I've never been, this time of year always motivates me to be more daring and embrace more color in my wardrobe and everyday make-up. From metallic trends to unicorn-inspired styles, here are three different looks to rock on or off the desert using the Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadows and the Matte 'N Metal Eyeshadow Palette by Stila Cosmetics.
[Stay tuned for a special announcement below]
The Peachy Glow
I have been loving this make-up trend lately. Although blending is still not my forte, I achieved this look by sweeping Sizzle or this metallic rosy copper all over my eyelid then Flare, a metallic cool bronze on my crease. To top off the peach glow, I applied the Rose Gold Retro Liquid Eyeshadow and the Kitten Karma on the lower half of my eyelid and attempted this cut crease eye. I opted for zero eyeliner and just a ton of mascara.
Would you rock this look?
There's something about red-orange lip and gold eye make-up to match that reminds me of Old Hollywood Glam. And if you ask me, I think it's just as good on the red carpet as it does on the sand. I applied Sequin or this metallic gold all over my eyelid then simply followed it with the Gold Goddess Liquid Eyeshadow. I topped off the look with some semi-dramatic winged liner (using the Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner) and two coats of mascara (using the HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara) . This look paired with some HMxCoachella earrings and you're just about ready for a fun night to remember!
To be quite honest, I have always strayed away from adventurous purple tones especially on my eyelids. But Coachella or not, it's good venture out of your comfort zone. I created this look by pairing Fringe, a matte light taupe all over my eyelids, and Bohemian on the outer corners with the Violet Vixen Liquid Eyeshadow on the lower half of my eyelid. Again, I thought this look didn't need eyeliner but of course, it's all about preference. Rock what you want!
I had such a blast creating these looks inspired by this time of the year! For someone who has been all about the minimalistic and monochromatic approach to style, it's amazing to see what I am capable of doing with color if I just give it a chance.
Now it's time to let me know what you're capable of! I've partnered up with Stila Cosmetics and put together a giveaway for you!
