Taking you back to your Fergie days. You’re welcome.
Speaking of glamorous, my best friend got me the prettiest palette for Christmas. The palette I am referring to is Stila’s palette called: Eye’s Are The Window. It’s the “mind” palette. This luxurious palette features beautiful colors which includes: brilliance, instinct, reason, imagination, observation, thinker, genius, wit, creativity, understanding, perception and intellect. How creative of color names?
I am just now trying this palette out and it is definitely for people who loves their nude colors. The palette shows up on your skin a lot lighter than the pigment shows on the palette. The shadow is very nude and it appears that way when you apply it. During my first time applying, I used brilliance to draw almost a liner where I would expect to put my eye liner. I always start off with a black or dark color to first illustrate my liner and then I go on with the choice of colors on my lid.
After applying brilliance, I went ahead and filled the lid with intellect and really packed it on to see the full color. In the crease, I did a bit darker of a color and used understanding. Blending that, I went on to use the color: genius. A blend of those colors was really pretty considering I have hazel eyes. Since I wasn’t trying to coordinate with an outfit, I had a little fun with it. It was also a little bland for me but that did not stop me from using my sparkles. I opened up my Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay. I decided to use “verve” which is a white pigmented shadow that had sparkles in it. I topped my whole lid with this and brushed it up a little bit until I met my eyebrow. I love feeling glamorous and rocking that sparkle. Mine as well have fun with it while you’re young right?!
If you’re also in the market for some sparkle I would recommend using the NAKED Illuminated ball. It is literally perfection. I have had mine for a little over a year now and I am obsessed. I put it on my face every single day. It’s a nice shimmering powder for your face and body. Fun fact: It’s also vegan!
Filling in my black shadow with my self sharpening smashbox eyeliner, it creates the perfect look for your everyday use. I get this from Ulta Beauty or Sephora and use the color “Raven“. After perfecting the wing, I move on to the mascara. For the mascara, I use a couple of different ones depending on how my lashes are looking that day and depending on how thick and bold I want them to appear. For tonight, I just used the Urban Decay “Perversion” mascara. I do not use water proof mascara only because I find it ridiculously hard to get off at night when I want to go to bed. For special occasions, I am sure it would work better but have never had a problem with this mascara lasting me the whole day. I am also a huge fan of the “Better than sex” mascara by Urban Decay. That has been one of my ultimate favorites.
That completes my eye look for tonight and I am definitely loving the new Stila palette. It is perfect for days when you don’t want to over do the whole makeup thing. It’s very elegant and clean looking and that’s what I love about it. Sometimes, I do not want to go with the whole smokey eye thing and this palette will be perfect for everyday use. Top it with some fun lipstick and call it a day! One of my favorites is of course a pink sparkle lipstick which is apart of the “Vice” collection by Urban Decay. I love the color of it and the longevity. The lipstick’s name is Big Bang – Metallized: bright pink sparkle.
I hope I’ve inspired you to try out some new colors and really have fun with your palettes. Each one can do something different for you, and don’t forget to spice it up with some sparkle!
