2014 #FIFAWorldCup Inspired MakeUp #1 - Brazil

So, World Cup fever doesn’t necessarily have to revolve around the actual soccer ball (or football) itself.

 Especially for us chicas, the FIFA world cup gives us more reasons to rock bright and colourful looks during the tournament. (Not that we need any reasons to – but as I grow older, I tend to stay on the “safe side” and haven’t been exploring colourful FOTD as much as I used to do. Is it just me or are there anyone else with me? :P) 

So,after a random playtime and experiment last Friday in conjunction with the open ceromony of 2014 Brazil FIFA World Cup, I decided to create this ThroughBeautyEyes 2014 FIFA World Cup Inspired Make Up series. 

This series will consist of make up based on the World Cup theme over the couse of this tournament - not neccessarily in the order of countries I support!

Of course, Brazil will be the first instalment in this series, being the host country and all ;)

These are the palettes I used to create this look but feel free to make use of whatever colours you have in your stash - all you need is bright yellow, green and dark blue eyeshadows. AND of course, a very good blending blush!

2014 #FIFAWorldCup Inspired MakeUp - Brazil 

1. After priming your eyes with a primer and set the base with a cream eyeshadow (I used NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk and Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Edgy Emerald here), gently pack on the green eyeshadow on the centre of the lid, leaving out the inner and outter corner of your eyes.

2. Then, apply the dark blue eyeshadow at the outter corner of your eyes, creating a "V" shape and bringing it slightly into your crease.

3. Next, apply a bright matte yellow eyeshadow (using Illamasqua Hype from the Fundamental Palette) at the inner corner of your eyes, dragging it down to your inner tear duct area/ lower lash line.

4. BLEND, BLEND & BLEND all three colours together. You may lose some of the intensity of the colours, just go back and pack on more colours and blend it until there are no harsh lines and reached the intensity you are looking for.

5. Line your upper lash line with either a black or dark blue eyeliner and create a wing.

6. Then, line 1/3 of your bottom lash line with the same eyeliner and connect it to the wing.

7. Set the eyeliner with the same blue eyeshadow that you use on your outter V.

8. Line the middle (1/3) of your lower lash line with the green eyeshadow you used on your eyelid.

To finish off the look, apply a few generous coats of your favourite mascara (mine is Dolly Wink volume mascara - no surprises here) and to magnify the effect of this look, you may add on some falsies but I wasn't quite up for that. ;)

I am quite lucky to be work in a rather casual environment - that means no warning letter for rocking up to work with these colours. :P

What countries would you like to see next?
