If you want to experiment with colorful makeup looks I think the best way to do that is to start with the color wheel. An analogous color pairing is the colors directly next to one another on the color wheel. Analogous colors just naturally go together so nicely that it’s a great place to start if you’re feeling uninspired. I decided to go with a yellow/orange/redy look.
I used some surgical tape to map out my wing (because lazy). I was using a powder shadow for my wing so I find it easier to tape it off (also laziness). I primed the eyes and added a bit of a nude shadow just to allow for ease of blending (I feel like I say that all the time). I built up the crease a tiny bit with a cool brown shadow.
For the crease I used Makeup Geek Chickadee which is a bright orange shade. Because my eye was taped off it was really easy to make the crease nice and blown out. I packed a bit of Makeup Geek Mango Tango onto the mobile lid and blended it slightly into the crease making sure not to go into the inner corner of the eye. I used NYX Heat to create my wing.
For the inner corners I used a bit of white pencil to really amp up the intensity of the shadow I was going to place on top. I used a pencil brush to push Makeup Geek Lemon Drop into the inner corner and blended that into the upper and lower lash line as well. Finally I added some mascara and some lashes (as always).
Onto the face! Foundation, concealer, contour, highlight and blush. The usual! I never go too heavy handed on my blush, contour or my brows but I promise it’s there ha. Oh lips! I used NYX High Voltage Lipstick in Dirty Talk. I really don’t like the formula of this lipstick so if you have anything like this shade that you enjoy please let me know down in the comments! It’s like the perfect red/purple/brown color it’s just a bit too glossy and gets everywhere!
