Before we get into the mess that is this post, I would just like to say one thing in my defence: there’s a reason the “beauty” section of my blog is practically skeletal.
Hello, friends. I feel almost bad for bringing you this post, but at the same time . . . you read my content to feel better about your life. To entertain you, to bring you a small semblance of light in this dark world where we can’t even see the beauty that is Jason Statham trending without thinking “oh shit, is he dead? … Or worse, a pervert?”.
So what I’m bringing you today? It’s entertainment. It’s like my How Not To Bake A Gingerbread House post . . . just worse.
Let’s do this.
I’m sure a lot of you are familiar with Joy from Mademoiselle O’Lantern. She’s awesome – and her blog is all kinds of goals. Especially its design . . . I want to steal it. (I won’t because morals and all that inconvenient stuff, but the temptation is definitely there.)
Now, while it sounds like we should like Joy, we don’t. Why don’t we? Because she shared this.
This super cute, super easy festival look. (Post is linked to the image; go and check it out!) And this look? Well, it got me overexcited and I thought – oh, I’d love to try a makeup look.
So today’s post is number 4 in my collaboration month – and is a collab with Joy! We decided to create two Spring Fairy looks – hers being a night fairy and mine being a daytime one. Go and take a look at her post for a look you’d actually like to recreate, continue reading this one to feel better about your own makeup skills. Let’s do this.
And, yes, I’m a British flower fairy – so I’m drinking tea. Sue me.
For this look, I *tried* to create petals on the side of my face and it failed, so I accessorised instead.
Now, if you remember my giveaway from literally yesterday, you will remember that I had this beautiful eyeshadow palette up for grabs!
This is actually the palette I used to create this spring look! Aside from the massive shitty flower on my face, I actually like this look to wear out. I actually did just that – and eventually you guys will discover the lengths I went to just to be that level of lazy. Hint: it involves a video in a bathtub.
I’m a great role model, what are you talking about?
So that’s really it; I thought it would be fun to try and create a Spring make-up look, completely overlooked my own abysmal makeup skills and was left with . . . well, whatever this post was.
That said, I love flower fairies. I’m a British girl – I used to go caravanning with my grandad and cousin across the British countryside and France, so I really love flowers and fields and woods.
When I was younger, I used to have an anthology book of flower fairies and the illustrations were so beautiful that they were actually one of the first things that inspired me to start drawing! I mean, sure, I gave it up again when I was like 16 . . . but I loved it once.
I’d actually quite like to get a fairy tattoo one day. We shall see!
Okay, kiddiwinks, that really seems like all I can say about this look other than maybe “don’t bother trying it at home”. Don’t forget to go and take a look at Joy’s post over on her blog – I can 100% guarantee it’s going to be way better.
In case you missed my “What’s Coming Up In Spring!” post, this is the first of an entire month of collab posts! (Exciting stuff, right?)
