Subtle Green Shadow and Freckles

As the weather’s staying nice and warm (thank God!), I’ve been loving wearing more natural looking makeup. Now this doesn’t mean less makeup, it just looks like I’m wearing less – but this has meant that I’m missing out on colourful eyes. Not that I ever really wear them, but by being more natural, even a bit of smoke is out of the ordinary.

I was recently watching Hey Claire’s Peek A Blue video on YouTube and loved that she created a natural looking makeup with a little hint of blue and I immediately felt inspired.

By using just one brush and a couple of greens from the amazing Pretty, Fun and Fearless Palette Volume II by Chloe Morello and Ciate London, I created a natural yet colourful look and it’s actually one I can see myself doing on the regular.

To add a bit more of a natural finish, I gave myself some freckles and finished it off with a nude matte lip – although a glossy lip would also look super fresh. So if you liked to know the products I used to create this, please carry on reading.
