FOTD: Celeste e Verde

Hello everyone! I just wanted to share a Face of the Day feat. the first look I ever attempted with MAKE Colour's Celeste e Verde Palette* (reviewed) because it's such a fun look that totally goes against the fall leanings of the makeup people have been wearing this season. Although I sometimes base my makeup on the Western hemisphere's concept of seasons, I'm not going to let the onset of autumn stop me from wearing pastel blue and yellow eyeshadow!

I used Palermo, a pretty canary yellow all over the lid, fading out into the warmer brown, Brick in the outer corner, with Earth (a neutral brown) buffed out into the crease. I used my finger and the NARS Eye Brush no. 3 for the yellow lid shade, and a MAC 217 for the crease and outer corner shades.

I originally just wanted the yellow and browns, but I added a pop of the pale blue shade, Celeste, in the inner corner. I added a mixture of both Earth and Brick on the outer half of the lower lash line to anchor the look, and I applied a warm brown eye kohl on the upper lash line for definition.

Check out my mascara'd upper and lower lashes. 🙂 I managed to keep it quite neat.

I decided to keep everything quite warm so I went with Coral, a matte lip color from the palette, applied over top of the MAKE Lip Primer*. I used a really, really mismatched shade for my face base so I went to town with a matte bronzer, and then I used a cute coral blush on the actual apples of my cheeks (which I never do anymore), for reasons unbeknownst to me.

  1. Gorgeous! I certainly think these are looks that can span across all seasons! You’re making me want all teh MAKE stuffz!

  2. I have been wanting to try MAKE makeup since I first watched one of their hypnotic “how-to” videos! Plus I love the philosophy behind their brand. So tell us, is their makeup as top-notch quality as I imagine it to be? 🙂

    • They’re amazing, yeah 😀 I’ve only tried a few of their products, but I recommend them for sure. 🙂

    • Thank you! It’s hard to imagine ever needing yellow eyeshadow until you see awesome looks using it (which is what happened to me, lol).

  3. Good call on adding Celeste on the inner corner. It definitely amps up the look in such a discreet way. The pic with you looking straight on is just WHOA!
