Recently I’ve gotten more into single shadows and depotting my palettes.
I love being able to see so many options to chose from.
Sydney Grace, Coloured Raine, Makeup Geek and Colourpop
Buying singles also gives me the opportunity to try more brands, especially indie brands that only sell single shadows.
This is also a great way to utilize more than one palette and brand.
For than look I used the following shadows:
Colourpop – Zested, West Side Makeup Geek – Cocoa Bear, Steampunk Sydney Grace – Golden Wheat, Aim High
To bring out a little more of the lilac I used Colourpop Piggy Bank gel liner.
I’d love to know what others think of using singles!
I’ve been pretty good about not making too many makeup purchases this year but I could not resist the Lust for Dusk palette
Colourpop Lust for Dusk Available on CP site
The dusk colors really appealed to me and…I hadn’t purchased a new palette in a bit, haha.
I love the subtle colors and the shimmer/metallics. I was most excited to see Miser (used on lid in this look) make a comeback in this palette (first available in LE Fortune palette).
In order to make the lid shade pop I use the NYX glitter primer.
The forumla does not disappoint, it’s easy to apply and blend. I’m excited to post more looks using this palette.
What do you think about this palette?
Not sure if the previous Colourpop palette posts count but I’m calling this V1 because I’m using shadows I’ve depotted and placed into one large palette.
This is the x-large palette I used to combine several of my small Colourpop palettes. It wasn’t an easy decision, especially since most of my Colourpop impulse buys are due to the packaging, but I love being able to see all my options.
I did have to label the shadows myself and at some point I stopped including what palette they were from but it is easy to Google the shadow name and see what palette it was in.
Shadows used :
Champs from Yes, Please Top Notch from All I See is Magic Hard from Double Entendre Elfish from Dream St Money Tree from Fortune Juicy Fruit
The highlighter is a recent Jaclyn Cosmetics loose highlighters and the bronzer is from the Tarte Ave Princess palette.
How do you feel about depotting palettes?
Returning to work after a nice long break has thrown me off balance so today is the first day I’ve done a full face of makeup.
I’ve been wanting to revisit CP Sandstone since the color story is easy to use
For skincare, today I used:
Fresh Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash Saturday Skin Pore Clarifying Toner and Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream FRUDIA Citrus Brightening Toner Fresh Kombucha Treatment Essence Dr Denese HydroShield Moisturizing Face Serum Tatcha Indigo Cream Dr Jardt+ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment (works amazing for redness!)
I like to switch up my face wash, toner, essence serums and creams but I usually try to incorporate what I listed above.
For makeup I used:
P Louise base in Rumour 2 Colourpop Santstone palette (I indicted the colors used in the picture above) Natasha Denona Magic Primer Tatcha The Pearl in Soft Light Makeup Forever Anastasia Beverly Hills contour palette Elf putty blush in Bali Maybelline Fit Me Age Rewind Concealer in Laura Mercier Loose setting powder in Translucent Wet n Wild Photofocus Loose powder in Medium (my favorite!) KimChi Bronzer in Colourpop blush in Parakeet and highlighter in Made Me Do It Pat McGrath Dark Star Volumizing Mascara
