One Palette Challenge...and Tag :-)

          So you're on a deserted island. You have a boom box and your 10 favorite mix CD's of all time.  And it's a good thing, because this isn't your ordinary deserted island.  It's an island of fierce GLAM.  Along with your music selection, you have some makeup supplies to keep up with the glamorous natives. Sure, you have a variety of lippies, blushers, eyeliners, and lashes...but you only have ONE eyeshadow palette.  Just one.  And it's not your ordinary everyday "wearing this to work" kind of palette.  (Unless...well- I don't know what kind of work you do...!)

It might look like one of these:

 

That's it!
That's all you have to work with.  That and a wearable brow highlighter shade.
This is my choice for my One Palette Challenge:

     
The MUA POPTASTIC Palette

     Although the colors are beautiful, the collection itself is delightfully all over the place.  This palette didn't flow for me. I was intimidated! So my task was to create a wearable look, using only this one palette, and a neutral brow highlighter shade.



      I did it!! And how did I have the PERFECT PAIR OF EARRINGS TO MATCH?!?!?  This was a really fun challenge. I see palettes all the time with off-the-wall color combos, and why not make them work?


 So this is easy :-) 
Teal to lid
Violet to crease
Purple to outer V and crease
Pink to blend crease colors up and out to brow bone
Deep Blue to lower lashline
Ulta Shadow in Naked for Highlighter shade
 Red Cherry Lashes 523

Cheeks: Ulta Powder Blush in Afterglow

Lips: MUA Shade 7 with Pinky Natural Gloss by Nyx




Do you have a palette with "outside of your comfort-zone" colors?  Do you have the MUA Poptastic palette?!?!  Do you want to take the challenge?

I tag anyone who would love to participate in the One Palette Challenge :-)  I would love to see your creations! (Just as long as you don't come to the party with an 88 palette- LOL!!!)

Hope you are having a beautiful day :-)
Be awesome to one another ♥

xoxo,
Colleen

  2. Gorgeous gorgeous look, of course...and a fun challenge! Nice choice on the MUA...I've got the Glamour By Day palette on my August Favorites...they are a dream!

    Because I value sleep more highly than I do most things, I LOVE it when I can find a palette that turns out to be a "one stop shop" and has everything I need to create a great look (like this one!) without involving too many other products. GREAT job...love it!!
