I went to the zoo with my sister and our kids last week and had a great time. There is a newer exhibit in the Jacksonville Zoo called “Land of the Tiger” and I am obsessed with it. I have been in love with tigers ever since I can remember. When I lived in Mississippi, the school I attended was very small. Small enough that it was K-12 all in the same building. Eventually they built an elementary school across the street but I went to school in the same building for 12 years. Our mascot was actually a tiger. I think seeing tons of pictures of this beautiful creature while in those walls really left a lasting impression on me.
My son snapped this picture with a cell phone while we were there. Maybe I should get him to start taking my makeup look pictures because he did a fabulous job! I took dozens of photos of this tiger and NEVER got one this good. haha I was so inspired by their beauty that I was dying to do an inspired look with some new Summer goodies I have.
Gah… such a beautiful animal. Anyway. I used colors that I found similar. Don’t get me wrong… I am not doing crazy tiger stripes. I am making a seriously wearable Tiger inspired makeup look.
A Tiger’s eye is my favorite. I love that it is completely lined in black and even has a flick. Hence the term “cat-eye”! I tried to stick with shades that were natural in the coloring of a Tiger.
Butter London Wink Cream Shadow in Randy to darken outer corner
Essence Stays No Matter What Whipped White Frosting on inner corners and lightly on brow bone
Essence Sun Club All In One Bronzing Highlighter to blend crease
Cattiva Black pencil on waterline
I hope you enjoyed my inspired look. Now I want to know what in nature inspires you. Is it a flower? Is it an animal? Is it something man made like the blacktop or architecture? Tell me in the comments below!
