Cherry Blossom Makeup - Ishtar Tutorial

Cherry Blossom season in Japan is honestly one of the most mesmerising floral displays the world has to offer. Not only is it visually breathtaking, with delicate pastel pink petals filling the sky and blanketing the countryโ€™s body, the signification of Cherry Blossoms in Japanese culture is pure poetry. The ephemeral nature of the flower is seen to signify destiny and karma: when one flower falls another blooms.ย This tutorial pulls inspiration from the pink hues of the flower with a soft gradient on the eyelids and pink flush on the cheeks. To finish the look Ishtar 2-IN-1 Lipstick is applied to the lips. Ishtar is a terracotta nude with a mauve undertone. Watch the tutorial below to see how we created the look.
