Makeup – Sapphire Inspired Creative Makeup Look | Life of Dahlia

Hey there makeup lovers, I’ve been really inspired of late to create some different makeup looks. I want to step out of my makeup comfort zone and create some unique and playful looks. I’ve been really inspired to use colour, both in makeup looks but also matching with my wigs and backgrounds. If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed that I’m using a lot of colour in my posts.

I want my blog and my Instagram to be fun and share my love of colour. I’m still figuring out what I’m doing, and what colour themes I want to stick with. I see all these nicely styled pictures on white backgrounds and while they look lovely, I feel like it’s really hard to get noticed when everyone else looks exactly the same, I also feel like they are just not me. Like I said I’m still figuring it out and I hope over time I can get better with styling photos.


I’m trying out some new techniques that you may notice in future looks, I’ve been trying out the faux bleach brow look. It’s taken me a while to master it but it was just about finding the right products to use. I typicall mix the NYX Professional Makeup eye base in ‘ESB03 skintone’ & Jumbo Pencil in ‘Milk’ and used a disposable mascara wand to comb it through my eyebrows, In this look I just wanted a lighter brow so I went in with a Brow Pomade before hand and then combed through the mix I made to lighten the hairs.

If you’re looking for a tutorial on how to achieve a faux bleach brow you can find one on the Kat Von D Artistry Collective Youtube channel.


I’ve recently purchased some new wigs that I’ve been playing with and I hope to purchase more very soon. I love colouring my hair but I can’t have every hair colour at one time so I love wearing wigs so that I can change colour or length when I want to but without damaging my hair.

I love learning new techniques and I thought that a bleached brow or lighter brow would look interesting with my lighter wigs or for a dramatic look.


I created this look because I wanted to do something different but I wanted to compliment my bright orange wig and my background so I went with blue because I knew it would match well.
