Do you copy makeup looks you've seen in photos?

I can’t remember the last time I did it! I’m sure I’ve done it a few times but for the most part, I just look at the colors in front of me and something comes together, LOL!

All the time. It’s one of the many reasons I love to see your makeup looks here, especially the more neutral and smokey ones that are more in keeping with my personal tastes and stage of life. But all of them are always so inspiring, Christine, even if they aren’t looks I’d replicate for myself.

Yes, but they are reposts of Douyin makeup rather than western looks. I love the blush placements they are using. I put it under my eyes/outer corner of the eye. I find it works better for my face than the traditional apples of the cheeks.

Only very rarely, and it has to be something that will work with my eye shape. I actually DID copy that stunning look you did years ago using Chanel Empriente du Desert quad, though! Because that looked so nice on me and brought out the green in my eyes, I have done it quite a few times since. Mostly, I will ONLY do looks that I’ve seen other hooded eyes folks do, and sometimes will tweak looks that I’ve loved that a few non-hooded eyed, non-almond shaped YT’ers have done. Although 95% of my eye looks are all my own, yes, I do a few here and there that I’ve loved on others!

I wouldn’t say “copy” as much as “use for inspiration.” I often bookmark looks I like and then make them my own and even plan outfits with them. It’s actually similar to my process with recipes and cooking, now that I think about it. These are my only two creative outlets, but I love them!
