The Parallel Worlds Makeup Collection by Nyx

Hey Everyone :-)

Sorry if I've been a bit M.I.A. lately! I've actually been quite under the weather.  I'm recovering as best as I can and when I have the energy I've been working on a couple of posts. ☺

This is one of them!

I'm quite excited about this because The Parallel Worlds Collection by Nyx was inspired by the movie "The Mortal Instruments". This is based on a series of books that I was not very familiar with, but as soon as I found out one of my favorite actors, ♥Jamie Campbell Bower♥,  was going to be in the movies, all of a sudden I had plenty of time to sit and read!  Can you believe it?!?!

Moving on ☺

This collection is awesome.  It's $25.00 of FUN and it includes the Smokey Eye Palette which I've been wanting for some time. I find that it is quite versatile, you can create looks with this for days.  The look I created was a simple "night out" kind of "sultry" look for me.

Hope you like it!

The Tools:

The Nyx Smokey Eye Palette

With this set you get:
 The Smokey Eye Palette
Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Cashmere
Nyx Blush in Pinched
Nyx Studio Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Le Frou Frou Mascara in Black
and Soft Matte Lip Creme in Istanbul

Awesome, huh?
So this is going to be pretty easy :-) 


♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Cashmere to Lid
♥ Ulta Shadow in Naked from brow to crease
♥ From the Smokey Palette:
1. Royal Blue shadow to crease
2. Misty sparkly grey above crease
3. Black shadow to outer V and crease
4. Shimmery Beige to lid
5. White shadow lightly dusted to inner corners
♥ Black liner to lash and water line
♥ Black Mascara
♥ Red Cherry Lashes in 415's


♥ Nyx Blush in Pinched


♥ Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creme in Istanbul
I added a touch of gloss to finish the look, so I used:
♥ Nyx Round Lip Gloss in Kiss


I hope you like the look!  I really love this kit, I love that it's super affordable, versatile, cruelty free, and has some random affiliation with Jamie Campbell Bower!  All of my favorite things! ☺

Thank you so much for stopping by!
I truly love it when you do ♥
I hope you have a blessed week :-)

  2. Hey Colleen, hope you are feeling much better now. I've really missed you. You have such an amazing artistry. When I try to take out pics of my eye makeup it never looks neat. You're superb at blending and making your makeup look beautiful.
