Playing With Color

I've been inspired to play with color recently, so when I received the gorgeous Burberry Makeup set in the mail, I couldn't wait to give the products a test. Today's blog post is all about how I use the Burberry Makeup set to add a little color to my look.

Because I normally stick to neutrals in both makeup and wardrobe, it makes playing with color easy and fun. When choosing pops of color, I remember to keep the rest of my look clean and simple. Using Burberry Makeup Antique Blue No. 305 I added a wearable pop of blue to my lids. This shadow can be used wet or dry and is incredibly buttery and easy to blend. 


With the blue all over my lid, I used my bronzer to define my crease and blend out the blue for a smooth transition. The rest of my makeup is pretty simple with another pop of color on my lips using the Burberry Makeup Kisses Hydrating Lip Color in Russet No. 93. For my nails I used the Burberry Makeup Nail Polish Black Cherry No. 304. This beautiful deep red is dark enough to work with most looks. I love a deep red polish for fall and winter.

    I tend to play it safe with my colors 95% of the time. I go for the bolder colors if I have a special occasion or holiday like if it were halloween or NYE!

    Are you still playing around with the no foundation look? If so are you still liking it? As for me i dont have a go to color but when i do do my make i usually go with my mood if im felling fierce or fiesty i go bold if i feel chilled or lazy i usually keep it safe. But i am glad your doing more color on you it looks stunning especially because you dont go overboard i feel like you keep it clean and classy.

      For most days I don’t really wear foundation, at most a tint. If I am shooting photos or attending a day of meetings and events, I’ll use foundation. I like to keep it natural looking and show off my skin whenever I can. I’ll wear more eye makeup or a bold lip, but I like to keep things natural for my overall complexion.

    Omg, I’m dreaming of that makeup look now!

    I’m just not sure if I can make it look so stunning… Could you pls do a vid one day and show us how to layer that eyeshadow – and bronzer on the lids. Which bronzer do you use?
    Can I use the bronzer I already have..?

    Thank you for the inspiration! <3

      Thank you so much for reading! I just use the bronzer as my crease shade. I’ll try to do a live video or include in an upcoming video soon 🙂

      They really get me with the packaging! Oh the sweater was such a good find at J Crew, I think I also had a credit so that helped 🙂
