Natural Look

Hi everyone! I wasn’t feeling well today but I was really excited to make a look with Dark Heart Designs new collection that has been revealed! Nightmare Before Christmas! My favorite childhood movie ever! This picture unfortunately does not show all of the shimmeryness that these highly pigmented and well made eyeshadows exude.  I used three of the new colors for this natural look.  I used The Mayor,  a  neutral beige w/ purplish blue undertones on my lid. On my inner corners and browbone highlight I used Ghost Dog (based on Zero) a white with orange and red undertones. I also used my sample of Mon Ennui’s Fairytale a pink with gold reflects on my crease. My lips have Shock, a mauve with green sparkles. I have plum eyeliner and purple mascara on as well. I was really impressed with both companies high color payoff using very very little of the product.  I consider this a very important quality because you could have a ton of eyeshadow but if you have to put a ton of it on just to get it to show up that doesn’t seem worth it to me.  The quality of the lip slick is also impressive, it has high shimmer and coverage and typically I shy away from glosses because of that stickyness that occurs, this however, had none of that and was very lightweight.  The shimmer and lightness of this look really helped me not look so sick and crummy and made my eyes really open up! And I didn’t feel like I had a pound of makeup on, always a good sign of good quality makeup.
