among the many eyeshadow palettes making their method into the hearts as well as houses of lovely women as well as makeup-lurving gents this holiday season, I’m betting there’s bound to be at least one (or two!) bright colors in the mix, as well as if you’re anything like me, a few of those brights can be totally terrifying.

For me, it’s usually the bright pinks…


I have no qualms about using bright pink on my lips, however my eyes are a different story. It’s like, bright eyeshadows take a different type of cajones, as well as sometimes I just don’t feel awesome sufficient to pull them off.

But I understand it’s just a specify of mind, as well as so over the weekend, I busted out a few of the bright eyeshadows I barely ever wear as well as began to experiment. I was just messing around when I stumbled on something by accident…

And quite much any type of formula should work, be it paint pot, smudgy liner or a creamy kohl. just apply on your lids, smudge it out, as well as pat your bright eyeshadow directly on top. The black base kind of grounds the bright shadow, toning it down.

For these pics, I used a layer of matte black Sephora Collection 12HR wear Waterpoof Jumbo liner in Black as well as topped it with shimmery hot pink metropolitan Decay Eyeshadow in noise (from the Vice Palette).

Noise is a lot…noisier in its pan than it is here. In the pan, it’s a hot pink with golden glitter, however smudged as well as mixed atop a black base, it transforms into a much more wearable, yet still intense, dark plum.

I’m dark skinned, as well as I like utilizing bronzer as a brow highlight. It assists me make dents in the big bronzer pans (it’s almost impossible to surface a bronzer), as well as it likewise subtly highlights my brows without making them as well obvious.

For rich lashes (and I am sure somebody has already mentioned this), as I apply, I begin right at the root of the lashes, as well as as I slooooooowly pull the clean up with my lashes to the tops, I wiggle back as well as forth gently. It combs with as well as truly coats the lashes. I likewise always do one final coat just at the extremely tip to make them look additional long.

I absolutely like the L’oreal ever Pure Smooth shampoo as well as conditioner. I never utilized to utilize drugstore shampoos as well as conditioners as well as believed only costly salon products would work on my fine however thick hair. It not only leaves my hair soft as well as manageable, however it doesn’t evaluate it down.

As a fair-skinned feline, my go to colours for eyes, lips, as well as cheeks aren’t necessarily restricted by my skin tone. With the right methods as well as a light hand, porcelain princesses can rock almost any type of look. I like experimenting with colour as well as discovering methods to make them work!

The tips of my eyebrows are rather sparse, as well as filling them in with my routine taupe eyebrow pencil looks a bit drawn in. What I do is after I line my eyes with black gel liner as well as an angled liner brush, I dab my clean to get rid of any type of super dark residue, as well as then utilize the faint amount of product delegated feather in the “hairs” in that area. I dunno, just makes them look more genuine as well as less drawn in.
