Hello, friends! Sophia here, also known as /u/iskindoffunny on reddit, or @fbstonefacekilla on Instagram. Luna recently reached out to me and asked me to do a guest post. While pondering what to do I figured I should do a lotus-inspired look given Luna’s blog name. Low hanging fruit? Maybe… But it did inspire me! Here’s the look!

Lotus Straight On

My general idea for this look was to create a blushed, blooming effect with a lotus’ color palette. Once I had the idea for the forehead lotus, it lead the vision for the rest of the look.

I outlined the lotus freehand with NYX’s White Liquid Liner and heavily shaded  around it with My Pretty Zombie‘s Drugs Like Me Blush in MDMA.  The center is filled with a dusting of My Pretty Zombie‘s Miasma over white, the medium inner petals are just MDMA, the small petals are Fyrinnae‘s Crimson Ghost, and the large petals are Fyrinnae‘s Rapunzel Had Extensions.

I used Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless in 110 Porcelain for my base and carried MDMA down onto my cheeks, in the crease, as my nose shading, and on the chin. I wanted to be as radiant as possible so I heavily applied Hello Waffle‘s highlighter in Midna to my cheeks, chin, cupids bow, and nose and layered Femme Fatale’s limited edition highlighter in Diaphanous over it .
Lotus Profile II

In the inner corner I have Shiro’s Cake!, on the lid, Cake! blended into Femme Fatale’s Divinity, and  MDMA in the crease and blown out to the sides. On my bottom lash line is MPZ’s Miasma with a bit of Hello Waffle‘s Ocelot to add more depth. I did my brows very lightly with NYX’s Micro Brow Pencil and a sharp wing with NYX’s Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Black.

I used Life’s Entropy’s Lip Theory in Derivative around the perimeter of the lips, layered and blended another Lip Theory in Quantum over it, with NYX’s Macaron Lippie in Citron in the center.

That’s the break down of this look! I hope you like it and if you’d like to see more, check out my Instagram or keep your eye out on r/IndieMakeupandMore for an occasional post! And thank you again to Luna for reaching out and letting me share my makeup enthusiasm with all of you.
