Acid Flower Bomb!

When I was 18/19 and I first got started into makeup I used to love experimenting with coloured shadows! But in the last year or so I have slowly started to get into wearing Neutrals when I go out.

I have this blouse...there is a picture further down. And I loved the colour combination of the flowers that I wanted to see if I had the colours to create a ‘look’. Low and behold I have the sleek Caribbean palette (was limited edition) and it had all the colours!

I understand that it isn’t exactly a wearable look, it was just a bit of fun! So on to how to recreate it.

I don't know why but when I smile to the camera when taking pictures for these types of posts I look like a stalker! Lol! So you're stuck with pictures of me looking miserable! Sorry!


I used the Jemma Kidd Light as Air foundation in 'medium beige'. And concealed my blemishes and eye bags with my MAC studio finish concealer in NC42.


I used a primer first, any primer that you have will do, I used the Urban Decay primer potion.

Using a flat eyeshadow brush I packed the pink colour on the first half of my eye lid and into the inner corner of my eye.

Flipping the brush I packed the orange colour onto the outer half of my eye.

Using a fluffy blending brush I blended the middle so it would become fluid, I kept going into the colours and blending to get it to how I liked.

Using a pencil brush I picked up the red colour and gently (I mean I barely put any pressure on the application) I drew a ‘V’ on the outer corner, dragging it over the top of the orange and part of the pink. I blended the colours together so there were no harsh lines.

I pulled the red colour underneath my eye with whatever was left on the brush.

Using an angled brush I picked up the purple and lined the upper lash line. Whatever was left on the brush I put on my lower lash line.

I then curled my lashes and put on the mascara and lined my waterline.


All I used was my sleek contour kit to sculpt my face; so that’s underneath my cheek bone, my jaw and around my temples.


I wanted to keep them nude considering the eyes, so I used my ELF matte Lip colour in tea rose (which I absolutely love!).

There you have it =) I think I need to get out of my neutrals funk and bring out the colours! Hope you enjoyed that!



  1. Incredible look!! It reminds me of a pretty summer sunset. I have the same palette actually, and I've always been afraid to use the shocking red eyeshadow, but I see how you used a tiny amount in moderation, it looks really good. Great concept too - pretty blouse :)

    1. Aw thank you =$ ohh red's look good on our skin tone! Even if you put a red in the inner corner and use a black in the outer corner, it looks good! =D xo

  2. I've been wanting to try out a wilder look and this look is amazing! Love how that red eyeshadow doesn't overpower the look. Good job! :)

    1. Thank you!! =) I need to get out of my funk of neutrals and break out the colours! lol! x

  3. I am so jealous of your amazing eye shadow skills! That is absolutely gorgeous! xxx
