Makeup Inspiration

Whenever I have time to look around the Internet, I would always first scan through posts or blogs of makeup artists and other makeup enhusiasts like me. I do this to look for makeup inspirations because they say that the only limit to one’s creativity is their own imagination. So since I have gone through post natal adjustments, this method has been helping me pump up some creative juice from within me.

It was last year when I came across this photo over Pinterest. Pinned it to my wall as one of my makeup inspirations, it was only until recently that I got the chance to create my own version.

It took me a while to do a version of this. When the eye shadow palette i ordered online from Enhance Cosmetics came, I instantly had this picture in mind. So without further ado, here I did a purple version although since I was using an iPod front camera, the colors didn’t really pop out.

I’d do more looks and blog about the eye shadow palette next time. Maybe if I will have the luxury of time, I’d do a tutorial.

So what do you think? Did I come close? 🙂

Online Buy: URBAN DECAY BASICS

I was just so happy when I checked out “Stuff In Style” Instagram and Facebook accounts, chose the item I want, and settled payment because the package arrived the following day!  Honestly, I didn’t expect it to arrive that soon since my payment pushed through late in the afternoon and delivery usually takes 1-3 days.  And so you can just imagine my delight when I received the package.

What did I buy?  It’s URBAN DECAY’s BASICS eye shadow palette.  Why I bought it?  Hmmm, let’s say being a stay home mom got me a little bored 🙂  And I was just too weak to resist URBAN DECAY and the ease of buying online.

Without further ado, I opened the most awaited package…

Opening the package

Of course I wasn’t able to contain my excitement that I immediately used it and tried it out.  Having nude shades, I opted to go for a make-up look that is suitable for daytime or when you will go to office or a corporate meeting.  I used a very light coverage foundation, as my skin is not really used to foundations.  I also didn’t have concealer here as I’m not really a big fan of it 🙂  Forgive my eyes’ puffiness for I sleep really late.  I believe no concealer can do the trick here hahaha!  For finish, I put a very light pink shade lipstick from Maybelline.

Using URBAN DECAY BASICS Eye Palette

So, what’s my verdict of the eye shadow palette?  FABULOUS!!!  It blends really well, although on me, the shades became a bit darker when applied.  Happy that it gave my money’s worth 🙂
