i usually don`t have inspiration,to be true… i know how to do my make`up and it looks really good,but i like to diversify the make`up look,so i watch fashion shows,tutorials on youtube,stars on the red carpet,beauty editorials… may sound stupid…. but this things never cease to keep me inspired 🙂

New products Ive bought, new makeup collections, what Im wearing, a certain look Im going for, a specific colour combination that Ive seen somewhere… Really, everything around me inspires me to do pretty makeup, haha 😀
I also love looking at peoples FOTDs online to get inspiration 🙂

Usually my emotions. If I wake up feeling down, I wear brown to warm me up, its like a comfort thing. Colour effects my emotions and mood strongly, so I use makeup to balance me out when I feel off. If Im feeling pretty good that day, or Im going somewhere special, I do my makeup to reflect my mood.

I mostly get my inspirations from favourite celebrity make-up looks..love Nicole Scherzinger, Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears at her prime

Although I have started collecting pics of looks I like, I never feel adventurous enough to start and try recreating them. So my biggest sources of inspiration are bloggers and YouTubers.

Well I got a lot of inspiration from you ofcourse, from Karen, Makeup Beautyblog, some Dutch blogs and the Make up artists at MAC 😉

A lot of times, my inspiration for a daily look comes from the clothes I am wearing & the color combos they have on them. When I am itching to do something more out of the box, I draw inspiration from beauty blogs, youtube videos, fashion mags, etc.

Yeah new products I’ve just bought or looks I’ve seen in tutorials or in magazines or on telly. I try to link things in with what I’m wearing but sometimes I do it the other way round and my clothes match my make up. I tend to do a huge colourful look if I’m not feeling my best, it brightens me up and bit and i can hide behind it easier.

Makeup blogs like yours and Karen’s, editorials on current trends, sometimes other women on the street, but i think for the most part is just my mood or if I’m inspired by a bright/dark lip or an intense smokey eye…

I love experimenting with my makeup – lately I’ve been uncovering some shadows I haven’t worn in a while. It’s the equivalent to shopping in my closet to freshen up an old wardrobe!

From blogs, youtube, just from seeing what I have…from clothes(like if i see a color that i wish was an eyeshadow). Definitely magazines, red carpet events. From other people’s makeup.

Base on what I feel like and the occasion, the products I recently bought and I could see which colours I would like to work with. Graduating from a design program, I can easily dream up tons of looks without too much help.

I circulate my make up and try to use everything at least twice a year (I have a big collection), so tend to pull out certain products that I use any given week, eg this week I’m using my YSL eyeshhadows/palettes. So my looks are based on whatever products I’m planning on using that week, and I wear clothes according to that too. Sounds anal, but I need to do it like this, otherwise I’d never use half my stuff, lol.

I think alot of my inspiration comes from things I see at work. I work in a “crafty” type store. I may decide one day to try to copy the pattern on a piece of scrapbook paper or something weird I saw the day before. Odd, I know!

For evening look:
runway, magazine, celebs, bloggers and youtube gurus like u.

For daily makeup:
mostly the color of my clothes and my new products.
