Giraffe Inspired Look. ღ

Haii! This past weekend, I visited the zoo/refuge & it was so neat. I hadn't been in a long time & it was awesome to see all the beautiful animals. One of my favorites, were the giraffes! They were gorgeous & seemed friendly. Haha. They came as close to us as they could & stared at us. I wanted to make a makeup look inspired by them & here's what I came up with.


1.) Highlight & Transition: I used a matte flesh tone color as my highlight & then an orangy color in the crease. (Wet N Wild's I♥Matte palette)
2.) Crease: To define the crease more, I used a color darker in my crease & blended out the edges. (Naked from the Urban Decay Naked Palette)
3.) Golden Lid: I then placed a gold color all over the eyelid. (Half Baked from the Naked Palette)
4.) Blend: Taking a shimmery pinkish color on a fluffy brush, I then blended out the inner-mid crease. (Toasted from the Naked Palette)
5.) Outer Crease: I took a dark shimmery brown & placed it in the outer eye. (Darkhorse from the Naked Palette)
6.) Blend: Blend it the edges & where the other shadows meet.
7.) Inner Eye: With a pencil brush, I dabbed a shimmery light shadow in the inner tear duct area. (Virgin from the Naked Palette)
8.) Liquid Line: With a black liquid liner, I lined my top lid, with a dramatic winged eyeliner. (Wet N Wild Water Proof Liquid Liner)
9.) Pencil Line: With a black pencil liner, I tightlined the top & my waterline. (Wet N Wild Pencil Eyeliner in Black)
10.) Define: I used a dark grey color to define & darken the outer eye. I mixed the shimmery brown & the dark gray color into the lower lash line. (Darkhorse & Creep from the Naked Palette)
11.) Lashes: To finish off the look, I applied a black mascara on my top & bottom lashes & then applied some short but full falsies. (Mabelline The Colossal & Ardell Lashes in 101 Black)
12.) Conceal: As a finishing touch,, I then conceal under my eyes & set with a powder.  (Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer in Light & Wet N Wild Natural Blend Powder in Bare)

MAC Reel Sexy • Sinful Colors Pucker Up: I loooove this lipcolor combo! I really like the orangy-pink lipstick alone but love it with this gloss too. The gloss is more of a milky pink but it looks prettier than I expected with this lipstick. It's bright, fun & a great Summer color. I'm usually a pink lip kind of person lol but I've been trying different colors lately & I'm loving it. Corals & oranges have been my favorite!

Sinful Colors in Vacation Time: This is literally my third attempt at giraffe print nails lol. My first attempt reminded me of banana pops & chocolate lol. My second, I did a sparkly lavender background with a too-bright orange pattern on it. I didn't even bother to take pictures of it, it was so bad lol! This was the only one I was pleased with lol. I hope you enjoyed the nails & the makeup look! Thanks so much for stopping by. xOxO
