Hi, everyone! As a new mama, most days for me lately have been makeup-free or have allowed for ultra-quick and easy makeup looks. I don't really mind, as I've still been able to take care of my skin and baby does not care if my brows are on point! ;) That said, it's still a super treat when I have a few extra minutes to have a proper play with makeup and get to sport a fancy, colourful look.
I'm a total sucker for warm, summery hues of orange, coral, and blue, so when I saw this video from Lisa Eldridge, I knew I had to re-create it! The makeup was all about bold, warm eyes, blue-green liner, peachy cheeks, brozned, glowing skin, and rich orange lips. The video actually contains two versions: a day look with nude-peach lips and a statement look with deeper matte lips. I opted for the latter!
Lisa used the new Urban Decay Beached Palette for her version of the look. It's wonderfully summery and, since I don't own it, I delved into my stash to find some similar shades. I wanted to match Lisa's technique and application as best as I could, so here's my effort!
I started with the Wet n' Wild Not a Basic Peach Colour Icon Eyeshadow Palette, as it's filled with rich, beautiful warm shades. I applied the two peachy orange shadows all over my lids, blended up to the crease. I applied the shimmery gold shade from the palette on my crease, blended into the peach, and the ivory shade from the palette under my brows. For extra intensity, I layered on Violet Voss Hashtag eye shadow (from the Holy Grail Palette) over the lids and along the lower lash line as well. To re-create the gorgeous turquoise-blue liner, I reached for a variety of products to get the intensity and colour gradient (lighter on the inner corners and darker, more blue on the outer corners) that Lisa had ended with. I tried the turquoise shadow from the Not a Basic Peach palette first, but this wasn't saturated enough. I then went for MAC Steamy Eye Shadow, a killer bold, frosty turquoise, and this worked wonderfully on the inner third of my upper and lower lash lines. For liner, I reached for Inglot Eyeliner FM in shade #527, a rich shimmery teal, applying this to the outer two thirds of my upper and lower lash lines. To complete the gradient I applied Artdeco All-in-One Liquid Liner in #15 Seaport on the outer third of my upper and lower lash lines, winging the navy colour up and out. I finished with a bright pop of seafoam green (from the Marc Jacobs The Siren palette) on the inner corners of my eyes.
Lisa used a gel bronzer blended with concealer for a warm, glowing complexion. I instead opted for a thin layer of Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation (it dries down matte, but has a natural glow) and buffed in a powder bronzer (NYX Matte Powder Bronzer) over top to recreate the glow. For the peachy cheeks I used a mix of Hourglass Incandescent Electra for some luminosity and MAC Cantaloupe blush to make the shade richer and more of a true peach. To highlight, I used the exact product that Lisa did- Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Prosecco Pop, a full-on gold shimmer.
Lisa used a gorgeous new product on her lips for her bold look, a matte powdery formula from By Terry. Until I'm able to snag that stunning shade, I chose a similarly-toned drugstore product for my look: Milani Colour Statement Lipstick in Sweet Nectar.

I'm so glad I got the opportunity to recreate this look from Lisa Eldridge that I loved so much. It was ultra fun and I imagine wearing something similar in the dead of winter when I need to channel some warmth.
