I'm always up for unexpected makeup inspiration, but I'm also trying to stay healthy these days. That's why I thought to take inspiration from my favorite healthy(ish) snack options.
Snack #1: Banana Bowl
This snack is a bowl with banana, walnuts, almonds and some honey. I hardly ever have a sweet tooth, but I do love bananas. It's also a great for those who prefer to de-dick a banana before eating it.
For this look I used Urban Decay Vice4 to create a warm brown crease. I highlighted the inner corner with a gold eyeshadow. Gold is just a fancier interpretation of the color yellow, right?
On the lid I applied Foxy from Naked2, which is a very banana-colored eyeshadow. I finished the eyes by adding some glitter bits, which represented the sheen of the honey.
Snack #2: Egg, Zucchini and Eggplant on Toast
This is a bit of a big snack but a good one: grilled zucchini and eggplant, seasoned with some ras el hanout (a Moroccan spice mix — it's the best) and a fried egg on toast.
For the eyes, I mostly took inspiration from the vegetable part of the snack: the brown and purple tones from the eggplant, and green from the zucchini.
The most egg-yolk color I could think of was OCC Lip Tar in Bèta. It's so bright it wouldn't even photograph normally!
Snack #3: Yogurt and Stuff
This snack is soy yogurt with whatever I can find. This time it's pomegranate seeds, dried cranberries, almond slices and some chocolate sprinkles.
On the eyes I used a really pomegranate shade; Aniseed by Sleek. For some reason, it turned out very pink on camera, though. I combined it with some dusty pink colors from Naked3, and on the middle of the lid I added a shimmery white to represent the yogurt. I added a black cat eye as a barrier (otherwise it can look like you've been crying) and also to represent the dark chocolate.
For the lips, I went for MAC Red with some Candy Yum-Yum in the middle.
I never thought I'd take beauty inspiration from my foods like this, but it did help me come up with that cool pink-ish red lip in the last picture, and I used my Bèta Lip Tar for the first time in ages. Not a bad experiment, right? I don't think Tim O approves of my healthy interpretation of his series, but that's okay.
