When Inspiration Meets Bad Makeup...
Hey, it's happened to all of us... You get a great idea and when you try to execute your idea, your resources come up short!
That is what happened to me with this week's makeup look.
I was going to do a fresh and "springy" look featuring a favorite brand of mineral makeup.
Guess what? The colors I selected were CRAP. NO pigmentation, and they were uneven upon application. It's like there was more "filler" ingredients than pigment!
Needless to say I went through my collection and threw out more than half of my colors, and have vowed NEVER to purchase from them again. This was the 3rd time I had tried to create a look with this brand and got bad results. Not to mention this brand overcharges for SAMPLES. I'm DONE!
THE GOOD NEWS is that I was able to achieve a look that I liked by adding in other colors from other brands, so I just turned a negative into a positive! :-)
(Next time I will happily return to using my beloved Rose Marie Shadows. THEY ARE AWESOME!!)
So, here is the finished result :-) I added some cute rhinestones for accent.
Those can be omitted if you desire.
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk to lid and waterline
♥ Off-white shadow from brow to crease
♥ Purple shadow to crease and lower lash line
♥ Soft pink shadow to blend crease color up and out to lid
♥ Nyx Shimmer Roll on in Green to lid
♥ Black Shadow to outer V and crease
♥ Black eyeliner and mascara
♥ Red Cherry Lashes in 76's
♥ Rhinestones adhered with lash glue to lower lash line
BLUSH & CONTOUR:
♥ Nyx Powder Blush in Amber applied to apples of cheeks
♥ Coastal Scents Contour Palette:
Dark brown shade used to contour cheek bones, temples, nose, and jaw.
White shade used to highlight center of forehead, under eyes, tip of nose, and chin.
♥ Nyx Round Lipstick in Ceto
