My makeup style & looks from the past year

*adlink

 

I would describe my makeup style as natural, playful and soft. I love glowy skin and warm tones. My makeup also depends on my mood – when I sit down I never know what look I’m going to do. I love to go with the flow and do what feels good in that moment. Sometimes the weather outside inspires me, sometimes I just really feel like adding glitter.

In this post I gathered some of the looks I’ve done during the past year. Maybe you’ll find some makeup inspiration here!

My makeup style

I like to look – or feel – like myself when I’m done with my makeup. I don’t feel the need to hide every single imperfection. I’m all about skin positivity. You can see some pimples, texture, or redness here and there. In short, I like my skin to look like my skin.

I like to play with colors, but I don’t necessary go with the strongest colors. Adding just a hint of color makes a huge difference. I also like everything to be soft and blended. My blush, my eyeshadows – nowadays I might even blend the edges of my lipstick. I just prefer soft blended lines and colors instead of harsh lines or colors.

I also like to try new styles and tehniques, but most of the time, I stick with what works for me.

I haven’t shared these before, so I wanted to add them to this post.

I know I used NYX palettes for this look.

Very colorful look I did for New Years a few years back. That gorgeous lipgloss is YSL Glossy Stain 206.

The lighting is off in this as well, but I thought this look was fun!

This look was actually from a challenge I did with other beauty bloggers. Not perfectly happy with it, but it has potential.

 

 

There you have it. Should I share my makeup looks like this more often? And tell me: what look is your favorite?
