A sultry look featuring berry eyes and three different lipcolors!
I did this look back around Valentine's day but wasn't sure I wanted to post it or not. It didn't turn out as well as I wanted, but as often happens, weeks later it doesn't seem as bad as I thought, lol.
I used assorted shadows from my BH Cosmetics Zodiac palette, and a sample of Stila Color Balm lipsticks with three different shades.
Keep scrolling for lots of pics and product details!
The first lipcolor I tried was a nude shade called Jessie:
Next shade was a medium warmish pink called Aubrey:
The last color I used was a plum burgundy called Elyssa:
-The Ordinary High Adherance Silicone Primer
-Wet n Wild PhotoFocus foundation in Shell Ivory, applied heavily with Real Techniques sponge
-Maybelline Fit Me concealer in Fair, mostly under eyes
-Some powder, can't remember
-Some contour, can't remember
-Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Paaarty
-Urban Decay eyeshadow in Virgin as highlight
-Urban Decay Primer Potion Original
-Matte shades from BH Cosmetics Zodiac palette
-Wet n Wild (new) Nude Awakening eyeshadow palette, matte ivory
-Kat von D Trooper liquid liner
-Maybelline Push-Up Drama mascara (not a fan)
-Ardell Demi Wispies
-Urban Decay Naked Basics palette "Venus" browbone highlight (I think)
-Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics "Blackjack" eyeshadow
-Stila Color Balm lipsticks in Jessie(nude), Aubrey(pink), and Elyssa(plum)
Sorry I can't quite remember every product I used but I'm sure it was all the usuals. I used an assortment of matte berries and purples on my eyes, as well as the peachy tan shade to blend it out. I used the matte cool purple on my lids but it's hard to see except in the close-up shots. I used the baked Virgo pink shimmer on the centers of my eyelids to create a little spotlight effect, and the baked Gemini silver shimmer shade on my tearducts as a highlight. I frigging love this palette!
As for the lipcolors, these are nice pigmented balms. I liked all the colors but my faves were the pink and the plum. Hard to say which I liked more; I think they both went really well with this look. Of course the plum shade was just a tad harder to work with since it's a dark shade. Like all dark shades, especially glossy ones, it took extra work to get it to look even, but not terrible.
Have you tried the Zodiac palette yet? What about these Color Balms? Which shade do you like the most? Let me know :)
Thanks so much for reading!♥
