Worn: November 8 and October 23, 2010
Scattering Blossoms is a look that can be easily created with two importantly essential kits to every woman’s makeup arsenal: Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows Vol. III and Urban Decay’s 24/7 Jackpot. In person, the blend of these colors adds a delicate feminineness to one’s face. The scanner does not do the sketch justice, so this is a look that I will definitely take a picture of once the opportunity arises. It is also currently my favorite look, one that I would say defines the current me.
The most important thing about this look is to color one’s lower waterline with a white eyeliner. This makes the eyes appear larger. This is a technique I have learned from watching a lot of Michelle Phan’s YouTube videos. If you have a preference to not have a lot of your whites show, like Mary DuPrie stresses in her photography and modeling videos, by all means skip this step.
Next, I used Suspect as a base on my upper lid, mainly to ensure that Maui Wowie doesn’t come out too chalky white when I apply it on my inner upper corner. After applying Maui Wowie, I added Last Call (dusty pink shimmer) to my middle lid and then Rockstar (dark eggplant purple shimmer) to the outer upper lid. Touch up the colors and make sure the blending creates a soft gradient.
Finish up lining your upper lid with Ransom, drawing your line a little past your eye to create a doe-like eye. Smash that face by lining your lower inner corner with El Dorado, and close that doe-like eye by coloring the lower lid with Mildew.
