Today’s look is a super dramatic and colorful one. I used the Markwin’s Beauty #flashmob fold-out eyeshadow palette which is full of gorgeous colorful shades. I used yellow, green and deep velvet blue on the eyes with a bright berry lip color from Sephora.
Today’s look is one of my favorites at the moment. I used copper as the lid shade but added interest by placing sparkling purple on the inner corner, rosy red in the crease, and deep teal on the waterline. For the lips, I did nude, but to add more, I did an ombre effect to bring more dimension. This is a really eye-catching, unique look, great for Summer!
Today’s look is my ‘everyday makeup look.’ I personally love to add a little bit of purple to my everyday look because my eyes are hazel/green, but adjust the pop of color to whatever you like. (i.e blue for brown eyes or copper for blue eyes).
Today’s look is my ‘classic Summer look’ which always includes gold and teal on the eyes and bright pink lips. I also tried a washed out nude shade to show what a nude shade would look like, but you know me, and I ended up with bright pink.
Today’s look is colorful for Summer, but the colors are slightly washed out, so this look can easily be work as an everyday look. And I think jazzing up your look for Summer with some color is super fun, and super trendy.
Let’s get into it:
Hope you liked this everyday, colorful, Summer makeup!

So a few days ago, I went to a 1920’s themed Murder Mystery Party, and for it we had to get dolled up for our characters. And today, I will be sharing the makeup look I did for the party. I went for a 1920’s feel, but more wearable for the 21st century. 😀 It’s still very dramatic, but more of a modern take. I loved how it turned out, and I hope you do too!
So for the face I went for flawless and matte, just like they used to in the 20’s, but the modern take was that I actually matched my natural skin tone, as apposed to the 20’s where they would go for alabaster, pale skin. They also kept their blush on the contours of the cheeks, rather than the apples. I did that effect, but not as bright and harsh as they used to.
