I love green eyeshadow. I don’t consider it to be an everyday color but I will still collect all the green shadows like a racoon collects shiny objects
My latest acquisition is the Juvia’s Place Rebel Quad

The Quad is actually much darker in real life and not having a base or crease color stumped me at first.
I used Limone Squeezy
from the Colourpop Limoncello to use a base/crease color.
What are you thoughts on this color story? Is it something you’d pick up if you don’t already have it?
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?
These days my car selfies are looking a little different
My car lease was up and I’m trying to decide if I want to get another car or use alternative transportation given how little I leave my house and how close my job is (and working from home plays a big impact too)
I want to try to test this out for a month or two and how I feel afterward. I’m also hoping that not being able to just jump in my car and go somewhere will help curb my spending habits. Fingers crossed!
Maybe I’ll get a moped or scooter, haha.
Here is what I look like under the mask today
Lancome Clarifique Exfoliating & Hydrating Face Essence with Glycolic Acid (gifted) Supergoop Mineral Sheer Suncreen spf 30 PA++ (gifted) Colourpop Rendezvous palette (discontinued) , Cool Breeze shadow stix Natasha Denona Metropolis palette and setting powder Morphe 25B (to set shadow base) Tarte Ave Princess contour palette Tarte four pan blush palette (discontinued) and BB tinted primer broad spectrum over CYO foundation (discontinued
I was reall impressed with the BrowGal brow pencil (received in Boxycharm or Ipsy). It’s soft and makes it easy to fill in your brows AND it comes with a built in sharpener
Have you used any of these products?
