When it comes to our beauty routines, it can’t be denied that a classic cat-eye or bold red lip (or even the two paired together) are our mainstays. But sometimes we just need to switch things up, ya know? As our wardrobes slowly start to brighten, we’ve been dreaming of ways to incorporate that same feeling into our makeup looks as well.
If you’re feeling inspired by the beauty in our latest fruit-themed stylebook, Freshly Picked, perhaps you’ve been wondering how to achieve the eye-catching watermelon-inspired eyeshadow look shown above. Well, today you’re in luck! Check out all the steps, below, and be sure to let us know how you intend to sweeten up your style this spring!
Watermelon Eye Shadow Tutorial
Black liquid eyeliner
2. Using an eyeliner brush, apply a line of green shadow below lower lashes. Next, line your lower waterline with the white eyeliner.
3. Using your black liquid eyeliner, carefully dot from your outer eye up to your outer brow bone.
4. Apply mascara to upper and lower lashes. For an even more dramatic look, dip a brow brush into the green pigment and carefully apply to brows.
Where would you wear this fruit-tastic look?
I am all for inspired makeup looks, but there is such a thing as an “inspired” interpretation and a “literal” or maybe “costumey” interpretation. This look falls more into the latter category. Sure, you can have fun with makeup, no one is saying NOT to have fun with it (I do it all of the time!), but you are billing this as a wearable look and that’s simply not the case with the green eyebrows and the mismatching lips.
You could have made it more inspired by filling her brows (not that she needed it) with her natural color and kept the fuchsia to the crease and put a more flattering satin pink on the lid; or, you could have kept the fuchsia on the eye and lined the waterline with a green over the white because the white with the green has a disconnect feeling to me. A warmer pink would have suited the look better over the baby pink chosen. It’s like she’s wearing two different looks over one cohesive one.
Of course, this is all my own opinion. Someone else might think it’s beautiful, but I generally think it was a brilliant idea, but poorly executed. I think Julia Graf generally did a much better interpretation a few years ago.
The eye makeup is fun but those brows… D:
I love the pink lipstick with the red hair.
I’ve done watermelon eye makeup years ago, and had received a lot of compliments (sans green brows though). It’s cute for spring and summer ^.^
Katie Grant, thank you for leading me to Julia Graf; Fascinating!
All I need to know is what lipstick that is!
