Unless it is for a Halloween kind of theme or a decade I’m trying to emulate then no, I usually base my makeup on colors I want to play with versus a theme.

For performances, I try to emulate the feeling of the piece on my eyes. I did a Harry Potter routine and felt like I needed to make sure each house had a color represented (except for Hufflepuff, since I was dressed like one). But in everyday life, no.

I often go with a monochrome color theme, or I try to match the mood/style of my clothing. Occasionally I’ll do makeup challenges in groups, so those could be any theme.

I sure do! At least when I’m both feeling inspired by something, plus have adequate time to get it all planned out and applied just right. These are my most enjoyable looks to do! Nature, a movie thematic, or doing a color combo that I’ve seen someone else do, but tweaking the placement of shades or style of application to better suit my own facial features and coloring. Any of the aforementioned can move me to do something more fun and expressive than an everyday look!

Depends what you define as a theme? I might deliberately choose all peachy shades or cool tones but I don’t specifically set out to do a “safari” or “pin up” or whatever else type look.

I like makeup to have a cohesive theme in a palette or collection (I’ve just ordered the eyeshadow palette and highlighter from the Zoeva Heritage collection, for example, and I’ll likely use them together at some point) but I don’t see that necessarily as having a themed “look”, so to speak.

Oh sure a romantic look with muted colors. No makeup makeup look, colorful eye look with blue greens, spring look with peachy cheeks.cat eye look, Smokey eye nude lip. Spring glitter eye. Classic look with winged liner red look.

I have to have a creative idea to know what I’m doing. .. sometimes it’s the no mascara look.

No, not really. I just go with the inspiration at the moment with the palette that inspires me at the moment.
