The Modern Renaissance Series: Flower Power

Lately, I’ve been playing with my makeup more and more, turning out really fun looks. I decided to experiment with the more orange colors from the Modern Renaissance Palette. The colors are really bold and pigmented; they looked beautiful on the eyes, and I decided to step the look up by gluing some flower petals to my face. In this post, I’ll be sharing the steps I took to achieve this fun, floral look.

I prepped my skin with the Too Faced Hangover Primer, then evened out my skin tone with the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation (I wrote a review about it here!). I concealed my dark circles with my beloved Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, and set my whole face with the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder. I bronzed and contoured my face with the Benefit Hoola Bronzer, and gave myself a flush of color with the Nars Blush in Gina. I highlighted my nose, cheekbones, and Cupid’s bow with the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle.

For my eyes, I took the shade Golden Ochre from the ABH Modern Renaissance Palette and applied it all over my lids as a base. After that, I applied a mix of Raw Sienna and Burnt Orange on my creases as a transition shade. I took the shade Realgar, a matte brick orange, and applied it over my lids and on my lower lashline. I blended it in really well, and then I took the shade Red Ochre, a deep sienna, and applied it to the outer corners of my eyes. I took my Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in the shade Copper and applied it on my inner corners to brighten up my eyes. I finished up my eyes with a generous coating of the Maybelline Lash Discovery Mascara on my upper and lower lashes, then I groomed my brows with the Glossier Boy Brow. For my lips, I used my MAC Lipstick in the color Chili. You can leave it at that, or if you’re like me, you can take some eyelash glue and apply Gumamela and Santan petals onto the sides of your face.

And there you have it! I really love how this look turned out, and I’m excited to create more colorful and creative looks like this.
