Sweet As Sugar Macaron Makeup Look (Featuring EOS Lace Brown lenses)


Hi Lovelies! Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween :)

A little while back Pinky Paradise sent me a pair of super cute lenses to try. I wanted to do something other than a straight up circle lens review, so I decided to play around and create a makeup look I normally wouldn't wear, to show off these lenses.  

So I was inspired to make a macaron themed makeup look!

Although I do love colours, I always tend to play it safe with soft and neutral colours on myself. So jumping from brown eyeshadow to green eyeshadow was...interesting ^_^

Here is everything I used for the look~


Do you like the props I used? Hehe, I was originally going to go for a 'pink fairy' kind of look, hence the fake flowers prop, but I changed my mind once the theme of macarons came to me. Maybe I can do a fairy look some other time. 

Lenses
These lenses have a very intricate and pretty lace design - they're more of a honey gold brown in colour, which is great for lightening up very dark eyes like mine. I really like the enlargement factor too.

Base

I wanted a glowy and radiant base, so I chose brightening and illuminating products, and applied plenty of highlighter. 

Eyes

Models Prefer Fashionista Colour Palette
Essence I love Stage eyeshadow base
Australis Paparazzi Perfect Quad in Totally Busted

I settled on green and pink as my macaron eye colours - they complement each other well, despite being at the opposite ends of the colour scale to each other. In my mind the green represents Pistachio macarons and pink represents Rose flavoured macarons <3


Face of Australia Budgeproof Eyeliner in Brown
Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara in Waterproof Black
Kate Mascara Base
Skinfood Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake

Finished off the eyes with brown eyeliner (a softer alternative to black), a good coating of mascara, and clean brows. 

I actually really wanted to do pink eyebrows to give the look some extra oomph, but having dark eyebrows, my attempt to fill them in with pink eyeshadow didn't work out T_T 

Cheeks and Lips
  
Makeup Academy Cream Blush in Bittersweet
Etude House Jelly Lipstick in Lemon (clear gloss)
Max Factor Giant Pen Stick in Vibrant Pink

A macaron themed makeup look can only have a dolly pink shade for the cheeks, correct? I used MUA's cream blush which is a sweet dolly pink. I didn't apply too much as I was going to apply a more vivid pink on the lips. 

Using MF's pen stick in Vibrant Pink, I created a gradient lip effect - applying the most pigmented colour on the inside of the lips, and blending out on the outer lips with my finger. I applied a little bit of clear gloss over it as my lips were a little dry that day.

I also made sure to co-ordinate my nails too, with pastel macaron colours!
Have received a lot of compliments on them in the last few days :)

Used the lightest green shade on the inner eye, the next darkest on the middle of my eyelid, and finished with the darkest green shade on the outer section of my lid, and then blended well~

And this is the end of the post! Although I did make a few little mistakes here and there, I'm still happy with the result, and I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone to play with colourful eye makeup.

Hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading, lovelies.

I really love it, I like how you used the pink and green shades and made your eyes look as sweet as a macaron haha :D I think this make up would look really nice for spring because of the green and pink :3 Thanks for this super cute eyemake up show off and short tutorial~!
    btw, Is the essence eyeshadow primer and the Etude House V-line highlighter and shader good in quality and etc? I was thinking about buying these two but not sure if they're worth the money or worth a try >o<

  18. Thanks Mindy, glad you liked this!
    Yep, the colours did remind me of Spring too ^_^
    I've had the essence primer a while, but this was the first time using it, as the colour palette I used isn't that great pigmentation. The primer feels smooth, and it didn't crease my eyeshadow so I do like it. As for the Etude highlighter, I def reccomend it - I use it all the time!
