I miss you all! ❤
I am so sorry that it has taken me a long time to post anything in general. Have I mentioned how busy I have been? Literally no time for my blog at the moment. 😦
Hopefully after this weekend things will go back to normal (somewhat) and we can get back to makeup. Speaking of makeup, I will be doing a 12 Days of Christmas thing over on my Instagram which will be STRICTLY makeup looks. I’m really excited for it because it’s kind of like a mini challenge but not really and it has been a LONG time since I’ve done this kind of thing in a while.
Anyway, if you want to see those looks in real time, go follow me over there! I am hoping I can do some kind of recap for those of you who don’t follow me/don’t have IG, etc.
But enough about that, let’s get to this lookbook which will be brief. The palette review will be up soon-ish in the next week or two 🙂
P.S. I didn’t take the best pictures of these looks because I kind of forgot to as soon as I was done with the look… Also, I am trying out different settings on my camera, so I’m sorry the lighting seems off in each one. Not the greatest natural lighting here either..
#1: Smokey Neutral
First Impressions: Some shades blended well and some required more buildup (Forever, Editor, and Dessert). Dessert also looked a bit patchy on the outer corners. The shade Spark was hard to transfer onto my eyelids using a brush so I resorted to using my finger.
Shades Used: Natural, Forever, Editor, Dessert, Spark
You can’t tell in these pictures how patchy the darker shade was, but my first impressions of this palette were not great.

#2: Gold Spark
The first photo looks MUCH better than the second, it was one of those days where I couldn’t take a good photo so these photos don’t do this look any justice.
Shades Used: Natural, In the Crease, Define, Highlight, Sweet

#3: Monochrome Copper
By the time I created this look, I think I had gotten the hang of how to use most of the matte shades, so this is probably the look I like best out of all. It did require more buildup on the crease, but it still turned out okay.
Shades Used: Natural, Upbeat, Epic, Blend
I do like how good these shades look together. They blended nicely into each other and at the same time kind of stand out a bit from each other.

#4: Orange Glow
My one attempt to make a look a bit more “bold” which didn’t turn out as well as I hoped, but I’ll take it. I think the lipstick shines more than the eyeshadow, like it could have been a bit more pigmented or something… And trust me, I tried..
Shades Used: Upbeat, In the Crease, Glow, Highlight
Alright, these are the looks I came up with for this palette. To be completely honest, none of them are my favorite, though I do like Monochrome Copper the best. It was one of those palettes that didn’t spark any creativity or joy, as dark as that might sound. I will have my review up as soon as I finish writing it up and editing the photos, etc.
Thanks for stopping by and not forgetting about me! T_T
