MAKEUP: BROWN SUGAR

3:48 pm


Hey guys! 


Today's post is a makeup look I named BROWN SUGAR. Honestly I dont know why, but that kept coming to my head when I was looking at the pictures. 




I was actually inpsired by my hairstyle ( it is called straw curls, and no you dont have to cut your hair or be a #teamnatural enthusiast). I waNted something really strong, without colors. Not necessarily pretty, but bold. So I chose a brown and plum palette to work with.


I also did a lot of bronzing as I wanted an all over glow!
For the eyes I used all browns and did an exagerrated cat eye, which I think compliments the bareness of the eyes.

Initially I did a bold lip, but later mixed it up with golden tones which I absolutely preffered to the bold lip.


I also did a bold/big brow ( big brows are really not my cup of tea, to be honest), to also complement the bareness of the eyes and also the lack of hair on my head!! (so to speak)
I was just thinking along the lines of NUBIAN PRINCESS lol!






All in all,I enjoyed doing this look, and I think it wears well with the hair!
