Spring Love Under The Wisteria Tree – Makeup Look Featuring Coastal Scents Revealed 3

SELF PURCHASED / AFFILIATE LINKS

 

It’s absolutely no secret that I love purple and those that know me, know that purple is my color obsession.  Because of this, during the Spring months I am in awe at the purple flora and fauna around me and look forward to their blossoms as they bloom.  Living in Up Country Maui a popular floral tree and flower is the Jacaranda.  It’s gorgeous purple flowers grace the road ways as you travel through the streets where I live and since it is in bloom during the spring months only, it’s a site to be seen for sure.

I considered creating a look inspired by the Jacaranda that graces Maui islanders each year, but realized that it is not the only purple love I look forward to each time.  While you will not find Wisteria Trees here in the islands (unless someone is able to plant one successfully), it is one of my favorites and I based this super simple makeup look after it.

Wisteria Purple Eye Makeup
Creating this look was simple and it’s all about blending and a soft wash of color.  I wanted this look to have hues of purple and pink for a Spring look that is sweet and definitely wearable.  To create the eye makeup – I used the Coastal Scents Revealed 3 palette and applied washes of color using my blending brush.  Using hues of purple, pink and soft shimmery champagne, I was able to create this look quickly without thinking about it.  Adding a black winged liner and a pink rose lip and the look was complete.

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette

I wanted the focus of this look to be the colors of the Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette.  I have had this palette for a few weeks now and since I own all three of them that Coastal Scents has released, I figured I would chit chat a bit about them.  Revealed 3 offers stunning and gorgeous shades that include hues of purples.  This palette was probably the one I was most attracted to because of the purple hues and purples are not only my favorite shade of color, I tend to love to use purple eye shadow a lot since it brings out my eyes.

Coastal Scents Revealed 3

Like it’s original counter parts, Coastal Scents Revealed 3 ($19.95) offers 20 shades in one palette and includes a combination of mattes, shimmer and satin shades.  I wish there were a better selection of matte shades included, but overall – the color range is gorgeous.  This palette however in comparison to the others is probably the most powdery when it comes to shadows.  I noticed that the shadows itself are much softer than the other palettes so I must take precaution when dipping my brush in to pick up color.  I also noticed that while the shades are gorgeous, some of them take more effort and layering when packing on color and they definitely need to be built up to get the desired effect.  Overall, I think I’ll still get lots of use out of this palette and I’m glad I got it on sale, but in comparison to the others, this one is not my #1 fav – which I’m bummed about since the colors alone would have made this my #1 very easily.

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Swatches

Now, since I discussed #3 I wanted to show swatches of #2 as well since I never got around to doing so.  The Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette ($19.95) is gorgeous and offers soft hues of rose tones which is quite flattering on many people.

Coastal Scents Revealed Palettes

As you can see from all of the Revealed Palettes (pictured above), they all offer different shade ranges which I think works well for many looking to have a broad range of neutral-like shadows.  Revealed 2 has similar shades in it to that from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, though I wouldn’t necessarily call them dupes.  I will make note however and state that if you are looking to create similar looks that the UD Naked 3 can and not break the bank, this palette would be a great one.

Coastal Scents Revealed 2 swatches

The Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette has gorgeous shades but I notice while they are buttery they pick up color nicely and are not as powdery as Revealed 3.  I have discussed the Coastal Scents Revealed 1 many many times, so I do not have swatches of that palette here, but overall – I think it is my favorite and if you love Urban Decay’s Original Naked Palette, I think you will surely enjoy the 1st Edition Revealed Palette as well.

Overall – I do really enjoy all of the palettes from the Coastal Scents Revealed line.  Though some more than others, I know that I will get some use from these products and have been liking them for looks that are both wearable and sultry.  I particularly love the shade range since they offer neutral type shades without being all brown and gold.

So, what is your favorite flower for Spring?  Are there any florals that will be inspiring makeup looks for you?  Do you think that makeup inspires your creativity for makeup looks as the Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette inspired me?  Comment below and chit chat with me!

Happy Spring!

    Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! Purple has been my favorite color my entire life, and yet I almost never wear purple makeup!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    I am jealous that you have Jacaranda trees. They are soooo beautiful. I hope at least my lilacs will bloom one of these weeks. We’re so far behind. I love your beautiful pink and purple look. I am amazed at the pigmentation you got from the Coastal Scents. What a bargain those palettes are!

  • ALL of the Revealed palettes are so tempting….I feel like I need them all….for absolutely NO reason other than I think they’re pretty, lol.

  • BeautyJudy

    Ok so first – you look fab in purple, love the entire look you did. Second, I need to check these palettes out and Google Jacadranda. Third, my favorite flower in spring is the lilac. There’s this one road in particular in a near by town that dips down and then back up, and as it dips down, lilacs grow UP and over the road on these large trees and its’ just stunning. It makes me happy and I go out of my way to drive down that road every year around this time. Looks like I have a weekend activity this weekend.
