Purple shimmer look

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!

Matte Eyeshadow Look

I rarely do all matte eye looks, but this week I’ve been wanting to use red lispticks and want to keep the focus on the color so I decided to give it a go.

Sydney Grace: Dirt Road, Be The Sunshine
Makeup Geek: Cocoa Bear, Dark Roast, Mocha
Coloured Raine: Gingerbread
Colourpop: She’s in Bold, Liquid Courage, Overtime

I had to really build up Dirt Road on the lid, and go back in after I darkened the look. I think it may just be too light for my skintone but in the end I liked the way it blended out and came through.

What are your favorite eye looks?
