You all loved Anna’s Kanariya tutorial. Today she’s back with another wonder that re-defines fantasy makeup!!!
With spring’s drawing near each day, I just can’t wait to go to the public rose gardens and walk down the cherry lanes. Especially this year’s flower festival is going to be special as we had a rough and scary winter here in Berlin. My desire for spring inspired me to do this look: Butterfly Blossoms. Just as my ‘Kanariya’ look it’s definitely not a make-up for daily occasions, but perfect for a flower festival!
Eyes: Lime Crime Magic Dust in Treasure Chest, Medusa, loose glitter in silver and gold, black eyeliner and mascara, dried rose petals, and decorative wings.
Face: Foundation, setting powder
Cheeks: Bobbi Brown Peony blush
Lips: Lime Crime opaque lipstick in Great Pink Planet, Treasure Chest magic dust
First, I used my Guerlain Parure Aqua foundation to smooth my sensitive skin. Secondly, I applied Manhattan Perfect Teint Powder to mattify my face. Since this look is all about eyes and lips, it’s best to keep the rest of your face subdued – otherwise you’ll end up looking messy and too bold. Last but not least I boldly applied Bobbi Brown Peony blush (it’s okay to overplay this time).
I applied M.A.C’s Prep + Prime Eye all over my eyes, took a flat definer brush, dipped it into Treasure Chest pigment and applied it all over my top lid – no blending needed as your brow bone’s will be covered up with petals anyway. Then I did the same for Medusa and dabbed it on my crease. Instead of a kohl I thinly applied Medusa with an eye liner brush to my waterline. I suggest that you use Medusa wet, as its powers only intensify in combination with water. :) Take your eyeliner and draw a thin line and put mascara on your lashes.
We are going to need some eyelash glue to apply the petals (I used rose but any other flower would be fine). I got mine at the German store Strauß Innovation, but you can find them in lots of other places: craft stores, nail shops and even at home-improvement markets. And of course you can dry blossoms yourselves which takes quite a long time, but would make your look even more special! I used my fingers to apply, but you can also use tweezers as well. Dip a blossom into eyelash glue and firstly apply to lower lid’s outer corner. I had no shape concept in my head and arranged them at random. The glue dries very fast, so be quick! Alternately, I applied small petals and even tiny rose buds. Afterwards I took my red decorative butterfly wings (you can get those at hardware stores as well) and glued over the brow.
To add extra magic, I dipped a fluff brush into my silver and golden sparkles (from Etude House) and roughly applied them all over my eyes and even the flowers – that sparkle adds a lot! This might sound complicated, but all you really need is time, patience and the will to do this look!
Since Lime Crime lipsticks are creamy and easy to put on (which is important as I have the driest lips on earth), I decided to finally try out Great Pink Planet. I dabbed multi-purpose magic dust in Treasure Chest on top to make my lips shimmery and glittery. Voila!
