Happy Friday dolls!
I was initially going to post my review of this palette today! I literally just finished editing the video and photos for it, and was ready to post, but I really liked the looks and thought they deserved their own post so I’m writing this up real quick.
I’m thinking I will post the palette review tomorrow so I can be free to post my full April 2019 Boxycharm review on Monday. So for the first time in possibly MONTHS, expect a post from me on the weekend! LOL.
Anyway, I do miss doing lookbooks and/or posting makeup looks for you, I know a lot of you really enjoy those and I seriously enjoy writing these posts as well. I will have to step my game up, huh? Ok.. I’ll stop there and let you see these looks I’ve created.
#1: Glitter Gala
This was the first look I created. Since it was a “festival” palette I wanted to do something that I don’t normally do, so I went ahead and used both of the glitter shades. In the end I really liked this look and loved the glitter formulas, I’m glad I paired this look with a purple lip, because the look stands out.
I applied these shades on a dry base, meaning I set my primer with powder before applying the shadows. I wanted to see their potential without using any “tricks”.
Shades Used: Epic, All Night, Wild Child, Fireworks, Gypsy, 24k Magic, Free Spirit
#2: Warmed Sunset
I have a tutorial of this look on tomorrow’s video. It will be a review/tutorial of this palette, but since this look was created, I’ve had more time to test it and put my thoughts together. The in-depth review will be tomorrow’s blog post!
Anyway, since it was a look I filmed, I decided to do something quick and simple because elaborate looks do take me a while to film. This look also kind of showcases the kind of looks you can create with the mattes that are available in this palette (only four), without dipping into the purple and pink.
Shades Used: Epic, Hidden Desert, Sunset, All Night, Free Spirit
#3: Purple Aura
The final look is more intense than the other two and this is because I used the “wet” technique. I applied the shadows without setting my primer, and therefore getting more pigment out of them. To say the least, I was not disappointed with the pigment using this method, I think the shades look really stunning and gorgeous.
I paired this look with a purple lip again to match the eyes with my lips. I also used a creme eyeshadow on top of Gypsy on my lid because I felt like a bit of shimmer was missing on the lid. I like the look of it, but I think next time I won’t use the creme eyeshadow.
Shades Used: Wild Child, Epic, Gypsy, Free Spirit
Don’t forget that this palette’s review will go up tomorrow! 🙂
Which look is your favorite??
Have an amazing weekend loves!!
