Perfect Summer Palettes!

3 May

Every year Spring/Summer rolls around, I get so excited to use my bolder and brighter lip colors, eyeshadows and blushes! There is no better time to incorporate beautiful color into your makeup routine. This Spring/Summer Lorac released 2 great colorful palettes that are sleek and perfect for travel as well as reasonably priced at $24. Both palettes feature 10 shimmer and matte shadows which include 2 oversized neutral shades allowing countless color combinations. The palettes are quite similar, so if you can only afford one, don’t worry!  One palette (After Glo)does feature some brighter colors than the other palette (Summer Glo) which you will see in the pictures below! It is just a matter of taste and whether you want to remain more on the “neutral/colorful” side or the ‘bright/colorful” side.  Either way, these palettes are PERFECT for summertime and are So pretty!

Having trouble creating the perfect smokey eye? I found something you will LOVE!    This genius palette is brought to you by Jillian Dempsey and Avon. The palette includes slightly shimmery, highly pigmented complimentary colors to help achieve the perfect smokey eye. The cool packaging separates colors into sections that mimic the shape of the eye so you know where to apply each shade. The Kit is available at Avon for $9!!!!!!! What a steal!


There are 4 shades in each Palette and there are 4 different palettes available including Purple,Cinnamon,Smokey and Aqua.

Find your Perfect Purple

18 Apr

Of all the colors in the rainbow, besides neutrals I think purple is the most wearable shade when it comes to eyeshadow. It’s not as girly as pink yet not as risky as blue. I have brown eyes and wear all eyeshadow colors but I love the way purple looks most. From lavender to lilac and plum to eggplant, purple shades flatter all eye colors.  You can go for a single shade look or smoke it out, the possibilities are endless! I really don’t believe in makeup rules but I know there are definitely pairings that look better than others. Here are some complimentary color combinations depending on your eyes.

Brown eyes: look beautiful with warmer purples and accented with bronzes and golds.

Blue eyes: look so pretty with cooler shades of purple and accented with greys.

Green eyes: Green eyes look absolutely amazing with ANY shade of purple and especially with eggplant and plum tones. Green eyes and purple shadows are a pair made in heaven. The color combination really POPS!

Remember these are combinations that work for sure, but any shade of purple may  look gorgeous on you no matter what your eye color, so TRY shadows on! you never know until you do.

Here are some pictures of purples on many different eye colors and shapes; different skin tones as well.
