This lookbook was meant to be posted weeks ago, but my husband unexpectedly had a furlough week in July, and was at home with us, so I took advantage and spent time outdoors. Then of course I hosted a pop-up so I was busy with all that. So now, I am back-tracking on posts, but good news for you is, I have content to put out 🙂
Admittedly, this would have been a great lookbook to have back in June, just in time for pride month. But as usual, I procrastinate.. Even so, once I created my first Pride makeup look, I instantly had the idea to do each color individually to create several monochromatic looks, with the exception of one*.
Since I had trouble with a few of the shades in my Pride look, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to get to know each shade better. I am aware that reds, blues and purples can be really hard to make, especially vegan, so it was a challenge to work with a few but this was good practice to see what works and what doesn’t. I am noting that I do suffer from dry eyelids every once in a while, which could have contributed to my struggle, but I honestly felt like I had an easier time with this palette this time around.
I absolutely adore these shades! This look does lean towards mustard tones, but more the better because I will be able to use these shades in the fall. Couldn’t help but take inspo from Jennie and wear a top to match my makeup as well, so thanks for that gorgeous!
Shades Used: Yosemite, Paloma, Firefly

Another beautiful look that was so fun to make! Green is another one of my favorite colors so I was so pleased to see that the darker green shade didn’t muddy up the look.
Shades Used: Peaky, Tank, Reagan

Blue & Purple Two-Tone
I had to do these two colors together because I had the hardest time with them when I did my Pride look. I did not want to bother with doing both of my eyes with each color so I opted for this two-tone look. As you can see, I didn’t have a hard time with patchiness the way I did before.
Shades Used: Cannoli, Thatcher, Bailey, Sadie, Pretty Girl, Confetti

It has been a while since I’ve done red eyeshadow looks and I absolutely love them. There is something about red makeup that feels so powerful yet feminine? Anyway, I really enjoyed working with these shades.
Shades Used: Casey, Pepper, Strawberry

Lastly, another orange look! I know you guys are probably tired of seeing these already which is why I won’t make a big deal about it, however, I will* say that the shimmery shade, Tsuki, seemed like the least pigmented out of all the shimmer shades. I find that a bit disappointing because it is a pretty shade and it has potential.
Shades Used: Millie, Zuma, Tsuki
