A while ago, Clinique invited me to participate to their campaign #playwithpop. What does that mean? Basically, that I got to play with a whole bunch of their newest make-up products, which is pretty dope since I’m a huge fan of the brand, and create different looks, going from shy bambi to femme fatale.

The reference: Zara Larsson, the ambassador of the campaign. Her interpretation of #playwithpop is pretty bold, as she recorded no less than 4 different versions of her song ‘Lush for Life’. Each version has its own video and, of course, its own make-up look. It’s very well-made and pretty cool to watch, take a look here!

Last weekend, I finally had some time to try to recreate this schizophrenic move: with the help of Clinique’s precious instructions and products, I got to work on two of the four looks, the ‘nude’ and the ‘wild’. Yes, opposites! What’s the challenge otherwise? :)

‘Nude’ look

Face: blush Cheek Pop – Ginger Pop
Eyes: Lid Pop eye shadow – Vanilla Pop & Cream Pop, High Impact Mascara – Black,  Just Browsing brow mousse
Lips: Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer – Wink Pop

I gotta say I had a lot of fun doing this! While the ‘nude’ look is pretty close to what I wear on a daily basis, the ‘wild’ one is much more elaborate, which allowed me to make my first steps into the crazy world of “I’m not going to choose between eyes and lips, screw this, I do what I want”.

Looks different, right? I mean yeah, it’s a lot of make-up, and honestly it took me a while to get used to it, as I’m not used to wearing this type of make-up. But once you manage to get into character (and to stop scratching your eyes), you feel ready to conquer any dance floor. The coolest part is, if I can do it, so can you: this takes 10 minutes tops and is super easy to replicate.

‘Wild’ look

Eyes: Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes – Fuller Fudge, Lid Pop eye shadow – Cream Pop, All About Shadow eye shadow – Matte French Roast, Quick Liner for Eyes Intense – Intense Ebony, Chubby LashTM mascara – Jumbo Jet, Just Browsing brow mousse

Ah by the way, I snapped the whole process, if you missed it on my Snapchat (nadiakaraok), here it is, forever haunting the Internet.

 

Sorry for being such a dork, I kind of improvised this one and I’m not really used to vlogging, so yeah -_-
