NYX Products Used: Mattifying Primer, Vivid Blossom Liner, Ultimate Brights Palette, Matte Setting Spray
I recently put out two blog posts of my new purchases from NYX. One included their Vivid Brights eyeliners, and the other included their Ultimate Brights Eyeshadow Palette. In the eyeliner post, I used Vivid Halo and said I’d come back to doing a look with Vivid Blossom. Well, here it is! This time, I’m using nothing but NYX on my eyes as well as my lips. What I love about NYX is that they really push the boat out when it comes to colours and allow me to be more creative than usual.
For this look, I wanted to use orange with the purple eyeliner as they are complimentary colours. At first, I found it hard to think of what colour to pair with it, so a complimentary colour was a safe but still exciting option.
I created a cut crease which is something I’ve never done before but seemed pretty straight forward. I started off using purple above my lid and blending this out. For this, I used the lightest purple in the palette to begin with, then the darkest purple, and added just a touch of the more pinky-purple colour in the palette. You can view the palette in my post over here. I used purple to tie the look together with the eyeliner whilst still having a pop of colour.
I then cut the crease with concealer and brought a wing out with it too as you can see above. I coloured all this in with the two orange colours at the top right hand corner of the palette, mainly using the very top right one and adding the colour to the left of this for extra definition. I then used the two yellows in my inner corner to again, add depth.
I teamed this look with a purple lipstick to tie it all in together and add something a bit more bold to the look to make it super interesting and stand out. Like I’ve said before, I really want to start playing with colour more this year and NYX have really allowed me to do that. The lipstick is from NYX Liquid Suede range and is in the shade Run the World which is a shade name I can get behind.
