Ready, set, go! The World Cup officially starts today and I am so excited, although I’m not a devoted football fan I’m sure we can all agree that the excitement of the World Cup is something we can all enjoy celebrating and I adore watching the matches, especially when England are playing, of course.
As the World Cup officially kicks off today, I thought it would be fun to share my excitement the best way I know how, by creating a World Cup inspired makeup look. Eek! So today I present to you my makeup of the day, world cup fever.
World Cup Fever
The World Cup is being held in Russia this year, so I decided to use plenty of blue and red shades for this look, as the Russian flag is made up of blue, red and white. I decided to focus my attention on the eyes for this look as I’m sure you’ve all probably worked out by now, I’m a big fan of a bold eye. I used reds and blues, white glitter in the inner corners and on the lashes and underneath the bottom lash line I used yellow, green, blue and red along with a blue eyeliner, as one of the anthems for this years World Cup is ‘Colors’ by Jason Derulo so I wanted to incorporate some more shades into my look.
I also had some fun playing around with my contour, using blue and red eyeshadow instead of a bronzer. I drew a blue line by where I would contour just to add a little fun and creativity to the look, as the World Cup is a big event after all. Why not go all out?
I decided to keep my lips quite simple for this look so as not to distract from the bold eye and face contour. I used my favourite red lipstick from Max Factor in the shade Ruby Tuesday to tie in with the red theme and brighten up my face a little.
