I’ve been toying with this idea for a while. I’ve been following makeup brand’s Instagram accounts for a while now and they post incredibly pictures of different looks.
Most of them are too polished and fake. Don’t get me wrong. When people completely transform their faces and conform to the same standard that makes them look all identical, I can’t really stand it.
If you follow or know about makeup artists Nic and Sam Chapman, that’s the kind of approach I love. Both of them have repeatedly said they like that smudgy, imperfect style and that’s what I’m a fan of.
Instagram makeup is not really my cup of tea.
One of the things I absolutely adore, though, are editorial looks. Put some weird colours and creative shapes on a model and I’m in.
With this post, I wanted to highlight the fun and mostly non-wearable looks that I wouldn’t mind having of my own face. Even if they don’t suit me.
These four looks are not particularly out there, but they caught my eye and I wanted to share them with people, so… here they are!
These are the kind of colours I LOVE wearing of my eyes and even though for a day-to-day basis it’s too much, I’ll love to have the time and the skill to pull this off!

This look is so basic without the blue lashes but it’s actually something I can wear and it’s pretty similar to what I do every day. I love the brown eye with the yellowish undertones and the blue mascara give the entire look a colourful and fun vibe.
If I could, I’d wear this everyday.

Although I’m not a huge fun of metallic makeup, this stunning look by russian artist Anastasia Plotnikova is something I would definitely wear to a party of a night out.
I am in love with the khaki green with gold reflexes! So stunning! And paired with the metallic silver is just magnificent. Next time I want to do a different look, I’ll try to recreate this. I already know it’s not going to come out great!
And last but not least, this look is from the Italian MAC’s Instagram account. The products are not in the description and I HATE glossy lip but this was too stunning to be left unmentioned.
