How To Create The Matcha Meadow Look

The obsession with matcha lattes is ever-growing, so it’s no surprise that Matcha Latte Makeup is the next trend to hit our FYPs. Putting a colourful twist on the original creamy latte makeup trend, Matcha Latte Makeup uses pops of green to draw attention to the eyes. We’ve packed our Botanical Palette with the perfect shades you need to recreate this look for yourself, with a touch of the wild sprinkled in for good measure.  

Step 1: Matcha base

Prep your eyelids with the By BEAUTY BAY eye base. Next, take the shade Matcha from our Botanical Palette and sweep over lid, blending it up to your brow bone. 

Step 2: Define your crease

To add some depth and dimension to your look, take the shade Mushroom and buff into the crease of your eye. If you have a hooded lid, place the colour slightly above the crease so that the colour is still visible when your eyes are open. 

Step 3: Highlight your inner corner and brow bone

Apply the shade Amazon to the inner corner of the eyes to brighten and open the eyes. Taking the shade Lily, follow by highlighting the brow bone to give the illusion of a lifted brow. 

Step 4: Define your lash line

Using a fine tip brush, create the effect of thicker lashes by gliding the shade Oak along the upper lash line, flicking out as you reach the outer corner to accentuate the eye. For added drama, follow by pressing the shade Myrtle along the lower lash line. 

Step 5: Complete with mascara

For the perfect finishing touch, complete the look with our By BEAUTY BAY High-Key Volume Mascara.

How to create the Lavender Luxe look

Confirmed by The Golden Globes, purple eyeshadow is the new it colour for 2024. Amethyst makeup and cosmic eye looks in particular are taking the beauty industry by storm, featuring purple hues with varying levels of intensity. Whether you’re buffing out a lilac smoky eye or packing on deep plum pigments, the options are endless for your next purple eye and we’re obsessed with them all. Recreate our purple-inspired Lavender Luxe look with the Botanical Palette to stay on top of the trends. 

Step 1: Create your wing 

Prime your eyelids with our eye base. Next, apply the shade Eggplant to the outer-half of the lid with a fine-tip brush, creating a wing shape. Buff out the colour with a fluffy brush, leaving the wing defined.  

Step 2: Buff and blend

Blend the shade Quartz into the shade Eggplant, bringing the colour over the lid and into the inner corner. 

Step 3: Highlight the inner corner and brow bone

Accentuate and brighten your eyes by applying the shade Savanna into the inner corner. For a lifted look, apply the same shade to your brow bone. 

Step 4: Define your lower lash line

Using a fine tip brush and the shade Eggplant, gently press the colour onto the lower lash line for extra definition.

Step 5: Apply mascara

Complete your purple-inspired look with our High-Key Volume Mascara for extra drama and definition.
