Has anyone else ever been afraid of color when it comes to wearing eyeshadow? I use to always stick to a neutral color scheme and never steer far from it. Covergirl “Golden Sunset” to be exact! I mastered applying these Covergirl shades on me, and it became the look that worked for me. Any eyeshadow to match my natural brown skin worked for me. But change is always good and a little color pop can add some spice every now and then.
Smokey eyes were not my friend as it seems to be treacherous for most. I must laugh behind that. As I struggled to be able to complete such a task of a smokey eye without looking like a raccoon in the end. The smokey eye look always seemed to make me look dark around the eyes as if I needed any help with that. Working on my skin became my focus because of dark circles around my eyes and skin discoloration. I certainly did not want to add any eyeshadow that was going to enhance that. Becoming a makeup artist and playing with colors has changed my entire outlook on the smokey eye. I learned when in doubt, just keep blending!
One of the palettes I recently was given as a gift was the Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Palette with 35 shades. It is absolutely AMAZING! An investment well worth it. The color payoff is well worth the purchase. I love pigmented eyeshadows and if you do too, add this to your kit. These shades are pigmented, apply well, and blend smooth. There is no build up and difficult time attempting to move the makeup. I applied a clear gloss to the top of the eyeshadow shades when completing a recent look and the end result was gorgeous. The eyeshadow shades stayed in place where applied although the top gloss was added. I knew when I saw this palette on display it was a must have!
