One of my assignments in class was to create a makeup look that is inspired by or complements an accessory. Each of us brought in accessories, placed them all in a bag and then blindly pulled one out. I pulled out a floral headband, which reminded me of an angel, so I set forth to create an angelic makeup look.


I used very light, shimmery eyeshadow and kept the brows as natural looking as possible. I wanted to create an intense glow, as if from a halo, so I used plenty of highlighter on the cheekbones, nose and forehead, and light pink blush on the cheeks. I also used a nude-pink lip liner with a silver gloss on top.
