Mr. Martin assigned us a project where we have to do something new that benefits us. I chose to expand on my creativity and challenge myself by doing a new makeup look each day of the week.
In my regular routine, I never had lots of time to try something new, I always stuck with the same routine of a basic neutral colored look.
Since we are on quarantine and have all this extra time, I figured I could spend time doing colorful eyeshadow looks and going outside of my comfort zone. I started to experiment with colors like orange and red and even green. At first I did not have confidence on how things were going to turn out, but by the end I was proud of myself. The looks cme out much better than I thought.
One day, I did this rainbow look where the colors of the rainbow were only at the very top of my eyelid. This was hard to do because this look required patience and a steady hand. Another look I did was an orangey red eyeshadow with a bold red lip. This look was actually even more out of my comfort zone because I covered my whole lid in shadow and then added a colored lip which I never do.
The hardest part for me was coming up with the looks, so I made sure to look up some inspiration from artists and influencers to help me come up with what I wanted to do. I hope to eventually be able to do enough looks like these, so I can eventually be able to do them without looking at someone else as a guide.
