Flat Lay Inspirations

A while back, I recreated some selfies I found on Pinterest. As an endless source of inspiration, sometimes a picture sticks with you and you want to try recreate it, or put your own spin on it. One of the boards I am obsessed with adding to is Flat Lays. I love them so much, but I struggle with coming up ideas for them. This is where Pinterest comes in!

For this post, I will share the original pin, and also my take on it. This was seriously such a fun way to kill a few hours on a laidback afternoon!

Here are four flat lays, and my recreation of them.

Flat Lay #1

makeup products

This one caught my eye, as I was really impressed that they used the actual product in it. It was splayed out so impressively, that I knew I had to try it. Although a small part of me was really unhappy about wasting a bit of makeup for flatlay purposes, I argued it would just be this one time. My take was a bit more colourful, but I have less neutral coloured tools and products, so I made do. It was definitely fun trying to arrange all the powders, creams and tools everywhere!

A lot of flat lays I see have lots of extra themed details that I don’t have, so I can’t really recreate. Ones that just have products tend to catch my eye more because of this. I loved this flat lay, as it seemed like organized chaos. The best way to run things. So I looked the photo over a few times, before collecting lots of similar makeup items I had to try recreate it. We both have the Marc Jacobs mascara funnily enough!

lifestyle flatlay

I don’t have a single slogan shirt. I really need to fix that. That aside, I said before I tend to veer away from flat lays with lots of details for decor, but at the same time I love them. When it comes to more lifestyle flat lays, the more details the better. This one had a running theme of photographs and living in the moment, so I did my own spin on it. Mine is definitely less refined, but I love how it came out all the same!

Flat Lay #4

flower flatlay

Side by Side

I wanted to end on one that was more minimal and simple. Plus, I had some fresh flowers around, so I had to include them somewhere! I didn’t have a small notebook with a cute message that included a love heart, but I did have this card. I really love this one, it’s sweet and simple.

Flat lays are seriously one of my favourite things to search up on Pinterest. The endless creativity and inspiration on there leads me down so many rabbit holes!

Have you created a flat lay recently?
