Ohhhhh! This trio is a good one! There was minimal fall out, the colors were once again quite pigmented, they were soft, easy to apply and the color combo was just fab! This trio is slightly reminiscent of my eye makeup for my wedding. I told my makeup artist that I wanted a smoky eye, but I didn't want blacks and silvers. I wanted browns and taupe, more natural colors. This palette has a pretty shimmery taupe for your eyelid, a deep, dark brown with golden glitter for your crease and a beautiful shimmery light peach color for your brow bone that on my skin doesn't really show up as much of a color it just gives off an amazing sheen that just brightens up the whole look and makes wherever I put that color look like it is glowing. You can totally vamp this look up or make it a very subtle, natural look. I vamped it up slightly because like I said it reminded me of the color palette I used on my eyes at my wedding and it was dramatic. My wedding was exactly a month ago, so I found it ironic that this palette was on the roster tonight, so I just used it as a sign to recreate my wedding eye makeup. Just because I'm more of a neutral color lover I definitely would recommend that everyone pick one up for yourself and an extra one as a backup, because I can see this palette being used every single day. I love it!
I don't know if I will get a blog post up tomorrow. Max, my dog, is sick and I am taking him to the vet. I just don't know how long all of that will take or if I will be up to blogging tomorrow evening. Then again, things might be much easier than I anticipate and I will get a post up. Who knows?
This palette was one of the ones that was beaten up pretty badly when it got to my house from Drugstore.com. The third time they shipped it, it arrived like it looks below. I figured it wasn't pretty, but it was still usable, unlike the previous two times they sent it, so I didn't chuck it. I'm glad I didn't!
I was using my e.l.f. Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Black on my waterline and it wouldn't apply properly. It felt like it was dried out. I've seen things all over the internet about holding it over a lighter or putting it in the microwave. I don't like fire. Fire and I aren't pals and the microwave was frankly much farther away than I wanted to walk. I was thinking about what I could use that didn't require too much effort or movement on my part. That's when I remembered just how much dang heat my 72W Halogen lamp gives off on top of my light box. I held my eyeliner under the light where it was practically touching the light bulb, but it wasn't, for about 10 seconds and it was perfect. It applied like a dream after that. So that's my tip for y'all. You don't have to have a light bulb that is exactly 72W, it can be much more or much less. Just like the wattage of a microwave, you can determine the length you'd hold the eyeliner underneath the light bulb by its wattage. Hold it under the light longer for a lower wattage light bulb and shorter for a higher wattage light bulb. :-D
|This picture actually turned out kind of artsy fartsy and neat looking! Ha-ha!|
|Get it as close as you can without touching it. I couldn't judge it very well while I was holding the camera. I held it closer when I wasn't taking a picture.|
That's all I've got for ya tonight folks! See you tomorrow hopefully! Here's the links to the first two Wet 'n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palettes in this series:
