My blog has been quiet once again but these challenges Finnish beautybloggers come up with are so cool that I just have to take part when ever there is one. This time it’s a spring makeup theme one and Sanna from Alohair blog is behind this idea. Also Finnish webstores and Glitternisti took part on the challenge by sending us eyeshadow palettes and gorgeous glitters.



In this challenge all the participants came up with a word that reminds them of spring or summer and then we were randomly given one of those words each for inspiration. My word was verdancy.

For me verdancy is what it looks like when there are first leaves of the spring on the trees and grass has just started to grow again. The green is really bright and vibrant. On sunny mornings everything looks almost yellow tinted green. Everything looks fresh and new, skies are blue and sun is shining. So bright yellow and green eye makeup look came to mind first. For the two glitter options I had I chose the Iridescent Orange glitter that shifts to pink and green.




For the eye makeup I used the dark green and bottom left corner light cream shade from NYX Professional Cosmetics the Go-To Palette in Bon Voyage. I also used Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadows in Buttercupcake and Acidberry.
