Oy, it feels like it’s been a year since I last posted. I’ve been trying to stick to a Monday and Friday schedule but even that seems to be too much for me. I’m going to continue to keep that as a goal but more than anything I want to keep blogging because I want to, not because I feel obligated.
With that said, here is a look using BH Cosmetics Love in London palette in different lighting.
I’m surprised at how much I’m loving this cool toned palette. It’s been so easy to combine shades and they’re so wearable.
The BH Cosmetics Travel Series collection has several location eyeshadow and highlighter palettes and so far these are the only palettes I’ve tried. The destination theme is a little sentimental because they can be of places you’ve traveled to or want to travel to, which is exactly how they got me *face palm*. Once I tried the first palette I was hooked and purchased a couple more palettes.
Today’s look is using the Love in London palette. This palette has a more neutral, lighter color story than I typically gravitate towards.
The palette is about half matte and half shimmer colors. The mattes build up nicely and blend out easily. They are a little powdery but that doesn’t affect the quality.
The shimmers are nice and buttery. They can be applied with a wet brush or over a sticky primer to show up more pigmented.
I used the two mattes, Cheers and Picadilly, in the crease and to darken the crease and outer part of the crease/lid. I used NYX glitter primer all over the lid and went in with Duchess on the outer part of my lid, over Picadilly, to smoke out the look more. Then I applied Biscuit over the rest of the lid and finished the look with Palace in the inner corner.
I used Picadilly and Duchess on the lower lash line.
I loved how this look turned out and am excited up try out more looks.
