As soon as I saw the City Chic Etched Floral Dress it was love at first sight! From the bold floral print to the tulle skirt lining, I knew it was the perfect dress to have me feeling girly and glam!
But what I was most drawn to was the pretty colour palette - baby pink and lime green separated by bold black lines - it was just screaming for a fun makeup look to wear with it!
Because the dress is such a statement piece I wanted to complement it with a strong eye look and an understated nude lip.
Get The Look
Hydrate and prep the skin using Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist and then apply NYX Studio Perfect Photo Loving Primer to the entire face to create a smooth base and to reduce any visible pores.
Conceal under the eyes and using Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer and set the eyes and face with a translucent powder.
Bronze and contour the face using Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in 'Luminous Bronze Light' then define the contour and bake using a dry Beauty Blender and Eve Lom Mineral Powder Foundation.
Add some colour to your cheeks by mixing 'Mood Exposure' and 'Dim Light' from the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette and using a fan brush lightly highlight the tops of the cheekbones, cupids bow and brow bone with 'Champagne Pop' from Becca Cosmetics.
Shape and feather the brows using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in 'Medium Brown' and with an angle brush fill in using the Taupe shadow form the Bobbi Brown Brow Kit. Lightly apply the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel to hold any natural brow hairs in place.
To define the brows and brow bone take the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer on an angled concealer brush and lightly apply under the brows and blend out.
EYES + LASHES
Apply Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer on the eyelids to create a smooth base.
For my eyes I used shades from the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca eyeshadow palette but feel free to use your favourite eyeshadows to create this look.
With a small fluffy brush apply a hot pink shadow (I used 'Swoon') to the outer corner of the mobile lid and with a clean fluffy brush blend like you've never blended before so you don't have any harsh lines!
Once done get a flat brush and pack on a light pink shadow to the main mobile lid (I used NARS 'Andromeda' Dual Intensity Eye Shadow) going slightly over the hot pink shade.
Then with a clean fluffy brush lightly work over the two colours fusing them together but without removing too much product.
Line the lower lash line and waterline with a lime green eyeliner pencil (I used Mac Cosmetics Technakohl Liner in 'Metallic Lime') and then using a pencil brush take a lime green shade (I used 'Vinyl') and blend it over the top, lightly smoking it out.
To give the illusion of brighter, wider eyes lightly apply a loose pigment to the inner corner area of the eye (I used Mac Cosmetics 'Naked' Pigment).
Create a winged eye line using Sephora Liquid Liner and coat the lashes with Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara before applying SocialEyes 'Tease 2.0' Lashes to add some lash drama!
To define the lash line and hide the lash band, sweep the Sephora Liquid Liner over the top lash line.
Line the lips with Too Faced Perfect Lips Lip Liner in 'Perfect Nude' and fill with Rimmel London 'Lasting Finish By Kate' Nude Lipstick #45 for a barely there lip.
This look is perfect for any special occasion, a wedding, races or for high tea with your besties and you can swap out the shadow shades to suit your eye colour (i.e. If you have brown eyes you might want to have green shadow on the lid and pink shadow on the lower lash line). Plus it's such a classic style that it will see you through from Summer to Spring!
