I tried Orange eyeshadow the other day and surprisingly I liked it. I don’t know why, maybe it’s just the way I applied it. I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette ‘Soft Glam’ with the Zoeva basic eye brush set.
I read that Kim Kardashian uses her concealer as an eyeshadow primer, so I tried it and it works a treat. Saves me buying primer and it’s quicker. Then instead of powder I set my eyes with the creamy/white shade that is in pretty much in every palette, normally used for highlighting, but yeah I’m lazy so I use it as my base.
Using the ABH ‘Soft Glam’ I used ‘Orange Soda’ as my transition shade. I fluffed it out from my crease up, leaving my mobile lid clear. I then went in with ‘Burnt Orange’ just above my crease to define and blended it out with ‘Orange Soda’. I didn’t want anything too dark but I did want something a little smoky. So to add depth to my outer corner I used the shade ‘Sienna’ it added the depth I wanted and didn’t make me look like a panda. Which is always a plus. I put the shade ‘Bronze’ on my mobile lid. It’s almost like a shimmery glitter, well … bronze. Then to highlight I used ‘Glistening’ to brighten my inner corner and brow bone.
So yeah, don’t ask me why but I liked it this time.
Carrying on with the philosophical questions, I tried this technique with pinks, didn’t like it. that actually surprised me, because we all know how much I love pink eye-makeup. During the week I created a sort of smoky soft socket effect with pinks and I really liked that look. Also tried a halo effect with ‘Dusky Rose’. But I really want to try a more vibrant pink, it’s just debating how.
Now you know my blue eyeshadow, that I love so much because it gives me ultimate mermaid vibes …. it’s MAC …. I’m going to have to throw it away aren’t I. WHY ME!!!! It’s tested on poor little animals. All the little fluffy rabbits and mice, the feels. I can’t do it, it has to go.
Also, I stupidly decided to dye my hair back blonde. My hairdresser did a really good job and I’m so greatful for that but OMG is it dry. I had to drown my hair in aragan oil and leave my conditioner on like a hair masque. I’m just wandering around with my hair in a French plait to avoid heat as much as possible. But I do really like it, I’m just trying to find a color that is less damaging to my hair. Let my roots grow out ….
Seriously though, I’m trying the new TRESemme Repair & Protect 7 range to see if that helps.
