Femme Boulevard: Makeup Look Inspired by...

This month's installment of Femme Boulevard is a great one! The theme is "Inspired by..." and the idea is to do a makeup look based on someone that inspires us, whether it's a celebrity, a blogger/youtuber or a MUA. I decided to do a look inspired by all the gorgeous makeup artists that post their creations on Instagram. More specifically, 2 of my favourite follows are @anastasiabeverlyhills and @motivescosmetics who feature various MUA's creations using their respective cosmetics.

The specific look I tried to recreate here was this gorgeous pale purple look by @evettexo

And here's my version, obviously nowhere near as professional or as well blended but I'm not too unhappy with it. I think some false lashes would have really completed the look but I have a bit of a phobia of falsies (yes, really!) so nothing but mascara on my lashes.

Here are the products that I used for this look.

Arcancil Mattitude Foundation in 020
Maybelline 24hr Super Stay powder in Sand
Illamasqua Sculpting Duo to contour*
Curtis Collection matte bronzer in Bronzed Goddess*
Curtis Collection mineral blush in Coral Queen*

NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk in inner rims and all over lid as a base
MAC e/s in Parfait Amour on lid topped up by Inglot e/s in 29 over it to lighten the colour
Dior Constellation palette matte dark shade (bottom left corner of palette) in crease
Cool Betty Liquid Eyeliner in black
Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara in Black

Deborah Milano lipstick in #14

And the overall effect.
