It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a make-up look on here, but I’m back at it! The inspiration behind this one was actually one product: the Sisley Phyto-Blush Twist. When I received the hot pink one in the mail, I immediately felt like challenging myself.

Bowie-inspired monochromatic

A cream product can be extremely versatile, especially when it’s a flashy shade. By playing around with textures, intensity and techniques, I wanted to test the limits of this product, and use it to its full potential.

Inspired by Bowie (always) and the monochromatic make-up I’ve seen going around lately, I created this dreamy pink look, and I’m all here for it. Okay, it isn’t very wearable, but I sure as hell had fun bringing it into existence. Also, how perfect were these flowers to use as a prop? At this particular moment, they actually have a deeper meaning to me. I don’t need your flowers, I’m working on growing and fixing my own, thank you very much.

Products without boundaries

Now, let’s look a little deeper into this look! For the eyes, I worked the cream blush onto my lids with my fingertips, to keep maximum coverage. For the dramatic outer corners, I used a big blending brush to sweep out and create that faded, winged effect. On my forehead, cheeks and jawbone, I used this fushia beauty to contour, which is extremely easy to do with a stick product. One swipe on each side, a little blending and done! Lastly, I wanted to try something different for the lips. I’ve seen that messy, almost wet looking lip look around on instagram, and this was my first attempt at it. I just used the blush stick to dab a little colour onto my lips, and then went over it with gloss, excessively and sloppy. Pink-vampire-sucking-cosmopolitan-blood realness!

Obviously, I had to add a glow, so I used the Pink Heart shade from the Moonchild glow kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills. Honestly, that palette is what my inner space princess dreams are made of. Top it off with a little pink rhinestone underneath the eyes because EXTRA AF, et voilà! You got yourself a #lewk, henny!
