Hi, everyone! I'm briefly interrupting the Charlotte Tilbury fanfare with a fun and colourful post. Yesterday marked the culmination of Toronto Pride week, celebrated with a joyous, vibrant parade. It was a damp, chilly day, yet millions of people came out to show their support for the LBGTQ community and the principles of diversity, acceptance, and freedom. Truly a beautiful and wonderful thing! Though I couldn't attend the parade, I wanted to share in the celebration by painting myself (or at least my eyes) in rainbows.
To create the colourful eyes, I combined the vivid hues of Marc Jacobs' Style Eye-Con No.7 palette in The Siren and Coastal Scents Go Palette in London. I focused the red, orange, and yellow hues on my lid, while lining my lower lash line with shades of mint, blue, and purple. I'm so happy with how it turned out!
For the cheeks, I started with Daniel Sandler's Watercolour Blusher in Trip, a neon orange then layered Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Blush in Incandescent Electra to tone the shade down slightly as the eyes were the main focus.
While I was tempted to paint my lips in rainbows as well (perhaps another day!), I opted for a nude, glossy lip to let the other hues stand out. NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu fit the bill perfectly!
Here are a few more shots of the look:
I am so proud of my city, my country, and (after Friday's ruling) our neighbours to the south for standing up for love, regardless of sexuality. So many areas of the world are sadly so far from this mindset, and celebrations like Toronto Pride remind me of just how very lucky I am to live where I do. Love wins!
Have a rainbow-filled week :)
