I’m a big fan of Colourpop’s products. One of my favorites is their eyeshadow. This color is a Vanilla Matte and was first only available n the Kathleen Lights collection but is now also available by itself. I like to use this as a base for an eye look and/or as a brow bone highlight. Right now I am not going to repurchase as I have a ton of other eye shadows and base products to go thorough but I would highly recommend it and I’m sure at some point I will buy it again.
While I was laying in bed last night I was thinking about how I was going to do my makeup the next day (please tell me I’m not the only one who does this…. ) and thought to myself “I haven’t used the Naked 3 in a long time I’ll use that! ” Well… I was really planning on doing something adventurous but I woke up late and while I did end up using the Naked 3 I did a simple look.
-Nooner and Limit used in crease
-Factory used over eyelid and lower lash line
-Strange used under eyebrows and in inner corner
Starlooks Luscious Longwear Lip Pencil in Naked (I can’t find on their website 😦 but their other lip pencils are between $13 and $16 )
I was planning on just numbering the shades in the palette but I found the pictures below on BH Cosmetics Instagram and apparently the shadows have names although they aren’t on the packaging.
I have Elizabeth Motts Thank Me Later Eyeshadow Primer all over my lid. I then put Bone all over over my lid up into my crease. Then I used a mixture of Burnt Sienna and Chocolate Brown in the crease and really defused it with a fluffy crease brush. Then I used Shell Beige on the outer and inner portions of my lid leaving the middle section of my eyelid clean. Then I popped Yellow Gold on the middle of my eyelid. I chose Pale Ivory and Lilac Pink mixed as an inner corner highlight. In the second pictures below I used a mixture of Slate Gray and Shimmering Charcoal on my lower lash line and Avon SuperShock Gel Eye Liner Pencil in Aqua Pop on my lower lash line.

I’m a die hard Jane Austen Fan. If it has her name on it I’m in. Now I’m also a purest so don’t go around trying to make my beloved Jane Austen into something she is not. All that to say, I”m also a weirdo and love the horror/thriller genre. When I heard that Pride and Prejudice was going to be mixed with Zombies, I knew I had to see it. It would either be an epic fail or something amazing. And it was something amazing; now you totally have to suspend your belief but it was over all an enjoyable if not ridiculous movie made all the more wonderful by Matt Smith as Mr. Collins. Seriously I laughed hysterically every time he was on screen. Enough with my movie review; I bought the BH Cosmetics Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Eye shadow and Cheek Palette and also the Lip Gloss kit.
I decided my eyes needed something a little more later in the day so I added an blue liner underneath my lower lash line and I love the way it looks!
