'Color Block' Look

'Color Block' Look

For this look I was inspired by Katy Perry's cover photo for Elle Magazine featuring the new fashion trend - color blocking. It's a great Spring trend using contrasting brights colors together. I thought I would try it out with makeup instead.

The Inspiration


I started off with Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (creamy beige) all over my lid and slightly into the crease as my primary base. Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush

For the entire lid I used Magnolia Makeup Garden District Pigment (matte grass green). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
On the outer lid and into the crease I applied MUFE #92 Eyeshadow (matte brilliant purple). Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush
On the browbone area for blending and highlight I used Magnolia Makeup Buff Pigment (matte light beige). Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush
For my lower lashline I used Bourjois Metallic Eyeliner in Blue Clinquant (shimmery bright blue).

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with MUFE #4 Metal Powder using MUFE Eye Seal. Tarte Eye Liner Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Sigma Eye Liner - E05 Brush
I used MAC PlushLash Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Sense Style 213 Eyelashes for effect.

For my lips I used MAC Petals & Peacocks Lipstick (raspberry pink) topped with MAC True Babe Lipglass (creamy bright pink).

I primed my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion. I used Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in #350 Caramel - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark - Sigma Round Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush.

I used MAC Overdyed Blush (satin bright raspberry pink) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush and MUFE #1 Sculpting Kit for contour - Sigma Angled Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush.
