You know it’s late spring, when each of my toe and finger nail is painted with a different color. Or when my freckles start to show up. Or when it’s finally warm enough to enjoy my morning coffee on our balcony.

Or when the date is suddenly 22.4. How are we already four months into this year?

And if not from that, you know it’s spring when I start to paint my face with rainbow colors. And on that note, here are two colorful makeup looks with tutorials!

Colorful makeup look

I have to say, this look didn’t turn out quite how I first envisioned it. In hindsight, it would have looked even better with a brighter lid color. I would have loved to use mint green, but I only had a muted light green, so I used that. Just white would have looked great too. Or another bright color, like yellow. So feel free to change up the colors! I also would have liked the liner to be bolder blue, but it didn’t show up as bright as I intended it.

Tutorial with step by step photos

I wanted to left the orange and pink to kind of float on my lid (except in the inner part of my eye, where I pulled the pink to the lid a bit). First I applied orange in the outer part of my eye, going upwards. Then I added pink in the inner part of my eye and blended them together a bit. I left the lid bare.

Then I added the lid color, which was a muted green. I also added that on the lower lashline. I lined my eye using blue eyeshadow on a wet brush and finished off the look with inner corner highlight and mascara.

By the way – that amazing glow comes from *Zuii Organic’s Melon blush. You know, the blush that is really similar to NARS Orgasm, only it’s actually better than it?

Watercolor inspired makeup

I really love this look. I used a white eyeshadow as a base to make the colors a bit more light and bright. Tutorial can be found on my Instagram highlights!

P.S. Thank you so much for your nice comments regarding my fatherless post. I’m overwhelmed and touched by your response. Writing that piece was important for me, but I didn’t realize how much the text could touch you as well. Whoever said social media can’t be real? I really appreciate you.

Are you into colors? 

Blue flower freckles makeup – tutorial

My real freckles aren’t yet visible, so I’m doing what I did last year, and wearing flower freckles makeup again! This time I chose blue flowers and paired them with yellow and coral colors.

 

That first flower freckles makeup post has put a smile on my face on more than one occasion. The same week I posted it, I got a question from a beauty editor, asking if they could use my photo in their magazine. So I ended up being featured in an Austrian women’s magazine! That’s one step closer to my dream of being on the cover. Hopefully talking about something important like mental health, blogging or makeup. I also posted the look on pinterest, where it has inspired people to recreate it. I love seeing your looks, so keep on tagging me if you do try it! You’ll find me on social medias by the name of charlottaeve.

I made a step by step tutorial for the flower freckles and the eye makeup. I also took before and after photos of applying blush and lipstick – just to show you how big of a difference that makes. I think a good base is important for this look, so that the flower freckles can shine. I thought a coral blush under the flowers suited the color theme nicely.

I chose coral lipstick – *Jane Iredale Triple Luxe Lipstick, Ellen – that I used both for my lips and cheeks.

Jane Iredale’s Triple Luxe is my favorite lipstick when it comes to lipstick formulas. And well, I love the gold packaging with magnetic closure. Honestly it’s the most comfortable lipstick ever. It has hydrating, thin and pigmented consistency. It works amazingly as a blush too, because it’s easily blendable.

Blue flower freckles tutorial

I used water-soluble face paints (mine are from Grimas) and two makeup brushes to create the flower freckles. I painted the flowers with the other end of my eyeshadow brushes. Easy. And once again, I want to remind you that it doesn’t have to turn out perfect – it’s still gonna look cute, I promise.

I first made the yellow flower centers. Then I added the petals.

When I was done with the flowers I felt like something was missing, so I added a few smaller flowers (made them with the smaller brush) and some dots with a detailing brush. And that’s pretty much it.

If you make a mess, you can use a wet brush or a q-tip to clean and carefully add concealer on top of the mess (I did that a few times).

First I primed my lid. Then I shaded my eye with a warm orange shade (I actually mixed mustard and a nude brown from the Too Faced Gingerbread Extra Spicy Palette).

I added yellow eyeshadow on the inner part of my lid, also on the lower lid. Then I patted on a shimmery bronze color on the center of my lid and on the lower lid.

Finally I tightlined my eye and added mascara. I chose blue mascara on the lower lashes, to match with the flower freckles.

Voilà!
