Snow days call for playing in makeup!
Boston got POUNDED with snow yesterday, which gave me plenty of time to play around with some new products I had. I also was able to clean all my makeup brushes and reorganize my makeup storage (hell ya, productivity)! I was able to create this look using a couple of different palettes – even sticking my brush back into the Saharan palette. Now, using it with other brands of eye shadows, it’s not as bad. I think it was the incessant layering of the thick formulas in all of their own shadows that created that undesirable result.
To create the eye look, I put ‘kitty’ from the styled by Hrush palette with a fluffy blending brush. I followed that up with a deepened crease using ‘Royal’ – one of my ABSOLUTELY favorite reds. I covered my entire lid with the ‘Fula’ color from the JP palette
– a shimmery, sparkly rose color. I topped it off with a little ‘Bliss’ back in the Tarte collection. I also recently got a free sample of the new Bite Beauty lip products and I’m obsessed. Like, five stars, obsessed. I’ve worn the color ‘Honeycomb’ for like three weeks straight. I’m not usually a vampy-lip person, but this shade SLAYS.
