Makeup inspired by Alessandro 261 nail polish21:00
I have this lovely shade of nail polish that I somehow rediscovered and admired the shade a lot. That's why I decided to try to recreate it in my makeup look.
This is Alessandro nail polish in shade 261. It's such an admiring shade in a bottle. Has some glitters of purple, green, blue and even yellow tones. It's sort of multi-color shade. However I always get disappointed when applying it and realizing it just looks blue on nails. But this is an inspiring makeup and I wanted to recreate the beauty in the bottle :)
I used Maybelline Color Tatto in Permanent Taupe all over the lid with a fluffy brush.
All over the lid I applied royal blue eye shadow (Essence 11 Wild at Heart) with a flat brush. Then I used crease brush to apply violet eye shadow in the crease (Essence Paradise in 01 Cockatoo). I used emerald green eye shadow (Essence 18 Super Babe) on a fluffy brush and applied it only in the center. In the inner corner of the eye I applied light nude highlighting shade (MUA Undress Me Too in Shy) with a little pencil brush.
On the lower lid I also applied Permanent Taupe with a smaller flat brush and then continued with violet shade all over and emerald green in the center only.
I used black eye shadow (MUA Undress Me Too in Corrupt) to create a little winged liner.
I finished with coats of L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara.
I contoured my cheeks also using Maybelline Color Tatto in Permanent Taupe. I find this to be a great gray color for a natural shadow. Then I applied some of my home made red cream blush and highlighter. You can find my DIY cream blush here.
And this is my makeup inspired by this gorgeous shade of nail polish.
Do you have any nail polish shades that look so multi-colored and fascinating to you?
