If you are not familiar with the “Inspired by…”-series, click here. Short story even shorter, I try to recreate the makeup worn by a model in the ad for a seasonal campaign with the makeup I already own.
This time I chose Lancome´s French Innocence Collection.
Paris and France really have a moment this spring. Not that I am complaining, I love France and going to Paris in spring (and eating my body weight in macarons) is something I would totally do.

What drew me to this campaign (despite the thought of macarons) was the eye makeup. The combination of green and orange, paired with a pigmented pink lip aren’t what I expect to see in spring.
And they aren’t something I would ever think of wearing, either. Greens with green eyes? Orange in the crease? I figured I would look like a parrot, but decided to give it a go anyway.
Makeup is all about leaving your comfort zone sometimes!
|Actually very happy with the look!|
After priming my lid and lower lash line with MAC Paint Pot in “Painterly”, I used MAC “Shimmer Moss” on an angled brush around my upper lash line and the outer half of the lower lash line, layering the shadow for color intensity.
Then I took MAC “Saffron” into my crease, sheering it out with a blending brush.
To add some drama, I tightlined the outer corner of my upper and lower waterline and applied Artdeco Ultra Effect Mascara.
Here a close up of the eyes:

The only lip product from my collection that came close (but still wasn’t vibrant enough) was MAC´s Lipglass in Rose Hue.
On my face I used Garniers BB Cream (Review here) and a little bit of The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 02. To get a dewy spring skin (and because Agata kept telling me to use my highlighters) I dusted some MAC Shell Pearl Beautypowder across my cheekbones, bridge of the nose and cupids bow.
