Hey everyone!
My name is Sylvia and I’m a university student studying political science. I’m Egyptian, I love reading/learning/geeky crap, and I love the arts! But without a doubt, makeup is my favorite form of art…
That being said, today I was looking at random pictures of birds online, and was kind of inspired by the beak of a bird for a makeup look! It had yellow and bright orange in it and they looked so beautiful together. I decided to take the colours from the beak and do a matte look with them, and I added some shimmery purple underneath the eye for fun. I did go out with this look, I was kind of nervous because it was SO bright but I received some compliments which felt kind of nice and reassuring! Anyways if you like it feel free to check my blog as I love posting bright makeup among other things!
My Inspiration:
The look I created:

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Makeup Forever Flash Colour in White (white cream base)
MAC Chrome Yellow e/s (inner 1/2 of lid, and to blend edges of crease)
MAC Orange e/s (outer 1/2 of lid, and into crease as a blending colour)
MAC Brown Script e/s (corner/crease)
MAC Vanilla e/s (tear duct)
Sephora Jumbo 12hr Waterproof pencil in Violet (lower lash line)
MAC Stars’n’Rockets e/s (lower lash line)
MAC Vibrant Grape e/s (blended with Stars’n’Rockets)
NARS Daphne e/s (outer 1/2 of lower lash line)
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Ransom (waterline)
Buxom cream eyeliner
Covergirl Lash Blast mascara

MAC Melba blush

Revlon Color Burst lipgloss in Papaya (LOVE)

I hope you like it and that you guys try out some super bright makeup looks in public! It’s really fun and not as intimidating as you’d think!
