My New Obsession: Duochrome Shadows

Hey, Everybody!

I know it has been forever since I've posted a blog post!  I have been super busy (that is a good thing) and my blog got a little lonely over here. :(

Well I am back! And I am really excited about this post because it has me starting a new makeup obsession: Duochrome shadows!  Duochrome shadows are basically colors that shift into another shade, depending upon how you apply them.  They can be worn wet, dry, or over a dark or light base. You decide how you want to wear them and how intensely you want the color shift.

Duochrome shadows are not new.  Nope.  They've been around for a while.  Why am I so interested in them at the moment?  BECAUSE THEY ARE GORGEOUS!  It's like being sprinkled in magical fairy dust! :)  It's just what I am in the mood for!

Before I get into the look, I will tell you that I got this shadow on Etsy (I love to support handmade cosmetics!).  This particular shadow came from Russia, and although it is gorgeous, the shipping took a really long time and it was rather pricey.  Having said that... I am glad I made the purchase, and let's check it out!

As you can see, this shadow has a light purple base with a TURQUOISE interference.  When worn over a light base, the purple is more apparent.  When worn over a black base, the turquoise is the dominant color.  The twinkle on this shadow is amazing and a bit tricky to photograph.  But trust me, it's there! :)

For this look, I used Nyx Jumbo pencil in Yogurt (shimmery pinky-beige) as my base. So the purple was more obvious, but the green still lightly popped out.  It is an eye catching color!!

Let me tell you about the rest of the look!
