flowers are the music of the ground.

I love Flower Beauty. When the line finally hit Canadian stores, I went crazy, picking up a little bit of everything. Now that the dust has settled, I am still using the products I bought. Some more than others. One that I am using regularly? Secret Garden. I fell in love with the shades instantly....but now that spring is here, this quad is  getting more use than ever. It features a deep turquoise, soft pink, lilac, and a bright green. What could be more beautiful? The combination of those earthy tones is absolute perfection.

Like the other Flower Beauty Shadow Play eyeshadow quad I own, these shadows are stunning. They are nicely pigmented and super pretty. Best of all? They are silky smooth and easy to apply. Something that really stood out to me about this particular set? The range of colours. Typically, I stick to neutrals and smokey eye looks. This quad combined bolder (yet wearable) shades with softer spring colours. That gave it a good amount of versatility - and separated it from a lot of the other colours in my makeup collection. Here is a closer look at the shades included in the quad.....

As you can see from the picture above, the shades are absolutely gorgeous. And so perfect for spring! They remind me of walking through the park or looking at a well-kept garden. What could be better than that? Lately I have loved putting together different looks with this quad. Sometimes I am all about the turquoise and green. Other times I am obsessed with the lilac and soft pink. My most recent look was all about that stunning lilac shade. I felt so inspired by it. And when it comes to putting a makeup look together.....I go where the inspiration takes me!

So, are you ready to take a look at my latest makeup look? This is Flower Beauty Shadow Play in Secret Garden:

This is one of those makeup looks that is quick and easy to do....but manages to make you feel like a million bucks. No wonder I keep reaching for this eyeshadow quad! It is definitely one of my spring favourites. I paired this eye look with my favourite NARS blush (Deep Throat) and a Flower Beauty lipstick (Petal Kiss). 

What do you think of this makeup look? Have you tried anything from Flower Beauty
