UV Glow Makeup

 

Hey Everyone 😊

 

For today's post I wanted to share with you some fun and creative experiments I did using some UV Glow makeup. I had recently been researching UV Glow makeup for some upcoming project ideas, and I came across an incredible palette that I wanted to share with you!

I've been having a lot of fun with it, and I think the pictures turned out striking. 

It's amazing to me how in the presence of black light, the colors look like laser on skin!

I found the palette HERE on Amazon and I am very impressed with it! The colors are WATER ACTIVATED, and dry to a flexible finish. They are very pigmented, easy to work with (& clean up is a breeze!). I think the overall payoff is STUNNING. 

The only thing to keep in mind, is if you perspire the colors won't last, and they do become dry and flaky after a while. I'm sure a fixative could be applied to make it last longer, but I will need to look into one that won't interfere with the intensity of the UV effect. 

 

Here are couple pics from some of the looks I toyed with:

 

 
 

 

Tell me what you guys think?!

Have you tried working with this type of makeup before?

Thank you for visiting! I always love it when you do 💗

Inspired Makeup Look: Doja Cat



Hey Everyone 😊

I know it's been a minute since I've done a blogpost, so I am excited to be BACK with a makeup look that I have been SO EXCITED to do for a very long time!!
This makeup look is SO dreamy that I simply COULD NOT try my hand at creating something similar and with my own twist.
If you've seen Doja Cat's video for "Say So" you KNOW that look I'm talking about. If you haven't, I am attaching my inspo pic!
I also want to say that I think Doja has got some of the BEST makeup looks lately, and I am L.I.V.I.N.G. for her.

Enough babble.
