Hello again, welcome back to my blog! Today’s blog post is a tutorial using the ColourPop Zodiac Palette, specifically a Water Element Makeup Tutorial! I promised you four element themed makeup tutorials when I wrote my Zodiac Palette Review. Honestly I didn’t even know that Zodiac Signs had elements before getting this palette… I’m starting with the Water Element. Later this week I’ll be sharing my Earth Element Tutorial, it’s filmed and ready for editing! Next week will be the Fire & Air Elements.
The smoke has finally started clearing from our air at my home in Alberta so I was able to start filming youtube videos and photograph products for blog posts again. It’s been so frustrating, I missed a few posts because the light had an orangey yellow cast and I wasn’t happy with the way any of my photos/videos were turning out. I’m so happy to see blue skies again!
The Water Element
The Water Element Signs are known to be the “emotional” signs. I thought that Aquarius was a water sign because Kathleen Lights mentioned that Aquarius is a Water Bearer. I went and did a little research and learned that Aquarius is an Air Sign but is called the Water Bearer because of Aquarius’ ability to “carry the water”. The water stands for our emotions, so that makes Aquarius a good friend to Water Signs. Or something.
The Cancer: This eyeshadow is gorgeous! It’s a pale pink shimmer and it’s stunning in the inner corner or all over the lid. This shade is especially smooth and creamy, I love it.
Personality Traits: Intuitive, Sympathetic & Sentimental
The Scorpio: I’m obsessed with my scorpio shade! It pairs really well with the Sagittarius shade in the Zodiac Palette, Sagittarius is the matte sister to scorpio in terms of shade.
Personality Traits: Passionate, Assertive, Distrustful (yup), Secretive/Mysterious (double yup)
The Pisces: This shade is gorgeous, I wish it didn’t fade throughout the day! A setting spray helps, but I haven’t been able to lock this shade down all day yet.
Personality Traits: Selfless, Empathetic, Intuitive, Artistic
Get The Look: Water Element Makeup Tutorial
Step #1: The water element signs are all shimmers so I ended up pulling shades from other elements. I began with The Libra in my crease using a big fluffy brush. This shade is fairly smooth and it blends out well. Next I took The Aquarius in the crease just below that first shade.
Step #2: Next I took The Sagittarius on my morphe M506 and blended it into the outer corner and through my crease. This shade works really well with the Scorpio shade. Now it’s time for the Water Shades.
Step #3: On a flat packing brush I placed The Scorpio all over the outer 2/3’s of my lid. Taking The Pisces on a wet flat brush I packed this shade all over the inner corner of my eyes and all the way to the centre of my lid. This left a harsh line where The Pisces and The Scorpio met.
Step #4: To blend this harsh line I took the shade The Cancer on my finger and I placed that shade in the centre of my lid. It blended the blue and purple together really well.
Step #5: In the outer corner I placed a tiny bit of The Virgo to deepen up the outer corners of my eyes. I applied The Scorpio on the outer 2/3s of my lower lash line and placed The Cancer on the inner 1/3.
Step #6: Finish the look with eyeliner & mascara.
