Blue flower freckles makeup – tutorial

makeup blue flower freckles


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.

before after lipstick and blush

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.

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.

Easy blue makeup look – tutorial

blue wing makeup



I love blue eyeshadow, even though it’s not the most conventional color. I like to do a full blue makeup, but using just a touch of blue also works. In this look I used blue eyeshadow to create a wing. I paired the look with light pink. Sometimes things escalate to glitter (you know how it is), so I also ended up finishing the look with a glittery inner corner.

If you’re into blue eyeshadow too, I have a video tutorial for another blue look on my IG TV here!

  1. Prime your eye. Contour/shade your eye a bit using a light brown. This is optional, but for my deep set eyes it really helps to balance the eye. I shaded the area above my actual crease and slightly below my brow bone. If you look at the photos closely, you’ll see the difference.
  2. Add some light brown on your lower lashline as well, so that it doesn’t look too bare with all the color happening on your lid.
  3. Add blue eyeshadow in a winged shape to your outer corner. If you have deep set or hooded eyes, chances are, that an actual winged liner is very tricky. However, a wing shape done with eyeshadow like this is easy to do and works wonders! Blend the edges of that blue color minimally, but keep it quite focused.
  4. Add light pink to the rest of your lid and blend it together with the blue. I didn’t blend too much, because I wanted to keep the colors separate. If you blended a bit more, you could create a purple color between the colors!
  5. Line your eye, add inner corner highlight and some glitter. Add mascara and you’re done.

For this look I used one of my favorite blue-containing palette – *NYX Perfect Filter Marine Layer. It has gorgeous colors! Besides these beautiful blues and pink – it has a the most amazing duochrome purple-teal color in it.

For the glitter I used NYX Glitter Primer and glitters from Colourpop and OCC.

A blue look I did, when I got the palette in 2017. My makeup style has evolved quite a bit from this.
