look of the day - sunrise

I really wanted to play with colour today, so I went ahead and did it! I spent the afternoon running errands and I had to wait in line at the post office for a half hour just to make a Christmas card, so I channeled my frustration into my makeup when I got home.

This look didn't start out drawing inspiration from anything except that I really wanted to colour in my brows a true red, and then I started forming a plan whilst in line. The eyes are definitely inspired by a sunrise, with a rich orange and yellow being the main colours.

I think this look could be very wearable if you just filled in your brows naturally and maybe went a bit more neutral on the lips, and maybe toned down the colours with a few more browns thrown in there. Or you can wear this the exact way it is!

The brows are a little sloppier than I had hoped, but my brows are unruly! The eyeshadow looks less bright when your eyes are open but once you close your eyes, the orange really hits you. I think the winged liner really adds to the look.
