BEAUTY BAR: Mystical Vibes

May 15th, 2017 at 2:00am

This year has been the birth of the rainbow craze. From hairstyles to frappuccinos, the trend is virtually everywhere. I am unable to casually scroll down my timeline without encountering a picture of the most vibrant bagel known to man. But to be honest, I never really understood the rainbow food hype. Is all that neon food coloring even good for you? Rainbow makeup though, that’s something I can definitely get behind. That’s why I absolutely loved this Fashionista’s mystical look and her attention to detail in creating it. The beautifully done messy side braid, layered accessories, and vivid makeup, encapsulated a whimsical vibe that won me over.

Let’s start with the eyes, which are a masterpiece by themselves. When I asked this Fashionista what inspired her to go full on Van Gogh for makeup that day, she told me that she saw a picture on the internet and decided to try recreating it. Now if you’re anything like me, the thought of putting blue eye shadow on brings back painful middle school memories. However, she most definitely proved that it can be tastefully done! The secret, she said, is to blend, blend, blend. On the lips, she wore Kylie Jenner’s metal lipstick, Heir, which is a sparkly rose gold that went perfectly with her Becca highlighter in Opal. Glow baby, glow!

The messy mermaid braid works super well with both the strapless dress and the glowy goddess makeup. It ties he whole outfit together into one whimsical masterpiece. She uses dry shampoo to add texture and body to achieve this effortless hairstyle. Layered necklaces are everywhere these days, and they’re a super easy way to add a some detail to any look. Whether it’s with a simple dress, like hers, or a white T-shirt and some jeans, they’re the perfect accessory. She also sported some assorted vintage rings, yet another detail that really made this look.

Though this isn’t exactly an everyday look, I love how fun and unique it really is. She looked like a fairy goddess from head to toe and worked it. By keeping her outfit simple and sweeping her hair to the side in the most put together, “messy” braid I’ve ever seen, she allowed her makeup and accessories to pop–and pop they did!
