Welcome back to Beauty Besties, where every week I link up with the wonderful Kerrie from Pish, Posh and Polish. This week we decided to do makeup inspired by nature, so don't forget to go and check out Kerrie's post! I decided to do a makeup look inspired by my favourite animal, the Tapir!!
I don't know what it is about them that I find some damn cute, I just do, from their little trunks right down to the fact that their babies are covered in pretty markings to camouflage them!
This is the look that I created, and I was pretty pleased with the overall look and I only had a vague idea about what I wanted to create. I did film a video of me creating this look which you'll find below, but if you would prefer to read about how I did this look then please skip ahead to that!
All you need to create this look is:
- White/Cream Eyeshadow
- Dark Brown Eyeshadow
- Black Eyeshadow
- Liquid Eyeliner Pen
- Reference photo of a Tapir
- You want to start by priming your eyelids, so that the colour will stick better to them.
- Then start by placing your white/cream eyeshadow in the centre of your eyelids, blending it slightly to the outer edges.
- Then using your brown eyeshadow and a small brush, start to outline the darker areas of the tapir, following your reference photo...
- Blend some of the brown colour lightly into the crease to complete the outline of the Tapir.
- Using your black eyeshadow go over the dark brown areas in your inner and outer corners being careful not to go over the lines you have already created.
- Using your white/cream colour go over the centre of your lids.
- Then taking your liner pen, line your upper lash line, extending the inner corner down to create a slight trunk shape.
- Create a line parallel to the one in your inner corner going up to your lower lash line, then line your lower lash line, staying as close to the lashes as possible.
- Coat your lashes with your favourite mascara.
- Use your favourite concealer to cover up any fallout from the eyeshadows!
What do you think of the look I created?
