Makeup Inspired by Our 5 Fav Flowers!

Flowers, flowers, and even more flowers! Summer is in full bloom, and we are thrilled. This season we have been inspired by all of the beautiful floral that has taken over the earth, especially with the Holland Tulip Festival right behind us. We were so inspired by the gorgeous colors seen in the flowers at festival that we thought it was best to incorporate them into our makeup. From eyes to cheeks and down to our lips, here are five of our favorite makeup looks inspired by our favorite flowers!

Pretty Peonies

Peonies are known for symbolizing romance, good fortune, and compassion. But what most people don’t know is that Peonies are a symbol of bashfulness due to a Greek myth of Aphrodite’s affection towards Peonies causing her to become bashful.

In honor of all of the bashful Peonies in bloom, we are bringing color to our cheeks! Reds and pinks will bring color to your face and give you a more innocent look. Keep your eyes light with shimmer to complete the look.

Orange You Glad

Don’t be scared to add some orange into your makeup routine. Surprisingly, orange works well for all eye colors and can really make them pop! Blackberry Lilies are meant to show innocence. However, with a pop of color like this, it’ll be hard to look innocent. Be bold and don’t be afraid to stand out with some orange. You’ll be glad you did.

Snow in Summer

White isn’t really seen as a “bold” or “unique” color, but once it is the focus of your makeup, things change. Dark or vibrant colors are usually used to emphasize your features. However, when you incorporate white to be the main color, your features will be striking! Follow the steps of the beautiful Gardenia flowers and its wisdom of love and purity to inspire you.

Lovely Lilac

Swap your angel wings for eyeliner wings. Line the bottom of your eyes in violet to bring a gorgeous more edgy vibe. Hey, angels can have a little edge to them!

Sun and Sunflowers
