Passion Flower/Purple Tulip makeup look

Wednesday, 22 June 2011

After seeing the legendary and late Queen B Makeup's "passionflower look" (click here), I just had to replicate it! I loved the purple and rainbow colours and the way they looked together, so I did my own version of it, using similar colours but tailoring it to what I thought suited best. I also wanted to use my NYX San Paulo Matte Lip Cream (MLC), so I did for this look ;)
Here's how my version looked:
And the original look by Alejandra (QueenBMakeup):
For this look I used:
> UD Urban Defense Tinted Moisturiser in Bodyguard
> NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk & Yogurt
> Manly Palette - yellow, orange, red and purple eyeshadows
> MAC studio concealer in NC35
> UD Ink for Eyes in Zero (for liner & brows)
> UD Cannonball mascara
> Khuraira Brow Fix Gel
> UD Glide On Cheek Tint in Score
> Sleek blush in Pomegranate
> NYX Matte Lip Cream (MLC) in San Paulo

After applying UD tinted moisturiser in Bodyguard all over my face, I used UDPP on the eyelids followed by NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk, blending in with the finger. I followed Queen B's video tutorial for the rest, substituting with eyeshadow colours I thought appropriate from my Manly palette. 
For the cheeks I used UD cream blush in Score followed by Sleek Pomegranate blush.
I used my new NYX MLC in San Paulo for the lips, which I adore!

So here's how the look turned out:
The eyes:
The whole face:
I think it turned out pretty well and really love the tropical-ness of it, the colours looked even more amazing in real life =D
