There’s an adage that states that you are what you eat – and maybe, just maybe – what you drink as well. If there's any truth to this, let’s toast to our favourite cocktail-inspired makeup looks, while sipping on something divine.
Celebrate this tequila-infused delicacy by interpreting its smooth yellowy-orange tones on your eyeshadow palette. We love the way this colour stands out - the perfect complement to a delicious drink that knows just how to mellow the mood. A touch of fresh avocado in the outer corner of your eye and on the lower lash-line will define this Mango-inspired look.
Long Island Iced Tea
Don’t let the “iced tea” and traditionally long, highball serving glasses deceive you: this cocktail is served with such a generous concentration of alcohol, it gives other blends a run for their money. It typically includes cola, gin, rum, vodka, tequila and more potent drinks. All these blend together into a sun-kissed amber hue. If this baby is your makeup inspiration, think of golden blushes, caramel contouring and lipstick that brings it home.
If ever there was an award for a drink that embodies all things pretty in pink, the Strawberry Daiquiri would be a strong contender. Packed with fruity goodness from fresh strawberries and lime, then topped with rum and perhaps other barman secrets; it oozes tangy sweetness. Makeup inspired by this yumminess is pink, bright, bold and ever-so-seductively tempting.
Whatever your favourite cocktail-inspired makeup is; don’t forget to own it. Make it fun. Savour it. And for goodness’ sake, ladies, wear it with a colour-inspired smile. For a change, let’s toast to our beautiful selves. Cheers!
