Rebellious Flowers

Rebellious Flowers

Here comes the magic of the season, when we are challenged to renew ourselves. As for makeup, it is the time to invent, and reinvent beauty with bright and bold colors and textures – I’m slightly making all the socials more colorful now =)

The trend in beauty pushes us to do no-makeup makeup looks but let’s not forget that we can also get that kind of bloom by being creative and by wearing colors that represent our energy, artistry and interpretations.


Last week, I attended MAKE UP FOR EVER’s event and they showed us a collection by Dany Sanz of MAKE UP FOR EVER who reinvented spring flowers for 2016. For her, colors take on a fresh, bold and luminous appearance. All daring exploits are possible for the whimsical artist and I got inspired by this.

Key color cosmetics used for this look

I used the products above, especially the Artist Shadows Palette 3 (Limited Edition; PHP 2500), to create a staggering and enigmatic look for my eyes. Artist Shadows are one of my favorite eye color products, and I was so glad to explore more its metallic, iridescent, satin and diamond finishes. The palette has 9 colors that echo the hue trends this season, arranged as well to assure the right combinations for every interpretations.

As for me, I used the top right purple metallic shade (ME-930), nude iridescent shade (I-544), and yellow highlight (ME-512) using the same eye style, but I placed the middle blush orange shade (I-804) for the lower lash and the apple of my cheeks to make the look more unique, warm but fresh. I complimented them with a thin black liner (forever black!), white-green waterline and volumizing falsies and lower lashes to make it more rebellious.


For face, I kept it at minimum and the same spectrum of pink, with a cheek color furthered by Sleek’s Face Form. For lips, I used a neutral-rose color highlighted by the New MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro-sculpting lip pen which has a highlighter on the other side.

I’m happy that I got to place more colors on my eyes lately but not the neon kind that you always see in my blog before. I like subtle yet psychedelic kind of colors for my eyes this season. I challenge you too to wear your floral interpretations in your makeup this season!

    I always like your eye makeups! They were neat and gorgeous. I always try to play with colors on my eyes, but it seems messy and overstated. Can you do some simple tutorials or tips on how to put eye makeups? 🙂

    The color combination is so pretty! Really psychedelic. I wish I can do that on my eyes too. The spring collection is so pretty. I will save up for that. The shades of the palette was well picked to create enormous looks. 🙂
