As a visual artist and fashion enthusiast, I’m always fishing for inspiration in my surroundings. While my makeup language inclines towards minimalism, every once in a while, I like to go bold. I believe in experimenting, and so I try my best to differentiate each of my looks from one another.

This look was inspired by a plant in my garden which caught my attention with its fascinating colours. I noticed its greens and blues blend in to create a plethora of unique muted tones. There were a few hints of violet too. Just like the natural form of the plant, instead of picking similar colours, I chose to create tones by blending different shades of blues, greens and purples.

On my eyes

I layered my eyelids with a thick base of Nocturnal (Navy Blue) and a dab of Metallic Violet from the Smashbox Master Class Lighting Theory Palette. Topped it off with a light green shimmer – 08 from The Body Shop in the middle to transform it into an emerald hue. Not a fan of dark edges, I kept it subtle around the corners with Mac Dazzleshadow – She Sparkles. Defined my waterline with Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer – Nude and used a bit of NYX Retractable Eyeliner – Gypsy Blue for the lower lash line. To thicken my lashes, I used a combo of Smashbox X Rated and Essence Volume Stylist Lash Extension Mascaras.

My brows are filled with Luscious Brow Luxe Tool Kit – Light, and defined with Maybelline BrowDrama Mascara – Soft Brown.

On my face

For a soft base, I used the Loreal True Match Concealer – Beige, along with the Estee Lauder DoubleWear Foundation – Tawny. Sculpted my face with Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit - Light to Medium and Mac Sheertone Shimmer Blush - TraceGold. To bring out the dewy glow I used the Glamglow Mega Illuminating Moisturiser- Nude Glow, with a brush of NYX Strobe of Genius - True Champagne.

On my Lips

Layered my lips with Huda Beauty Liquid Matte – Muse, topping it off with Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Buttercream Gloss – Flashy Voilet.
