FOTD: Blue Had Me At Hello

I've had this Wet n Wild 8 pan palette for so long now, MONTHS, and I never used it until today.

It's not that I forgot I had it, I was just a little intimidated by the colors. So bold! But, I have been feeling a little braver as of late since I got my NYX shadows which are bright and bold.

And, my Pretties, this is what I came up with...

Wet n Wild Blue Had Me At Hello
Colors I used:
1st Column, 1st shadow: Browbone
2nd Column, 2nd shadow: Eyelid
2nd Column, 3rd shadow: Crease
2nd Column, 4th shadow: Definer

Face:
Avon Healthy Makeup Mouse Foundation
in V201 Medium Beige.
Avon Anew Age-Transforming Pressed Powder
in E220 Tan Beige.

Cheeks:
Avon Smooth Minerals Mineral Blush
in M01 Golden Glow.
Avon True Color Blush
in Classic Aura.

Eyeliner: E.L.F. Liquid Eyeliner in Black.
Eyeliner: Profusion Eyeliner Pencil in Black.
Mascara: Revlon CustomEyes Mascara in Blackest Black.

Eyeshadows:
Teal on the lid.
Sparkly black in the crease.
Navy blue above the crease.
Shimmery white on the browbone.

Lips:
Lipstick: NYX Round Lipstick in Thalia
Lip Gloss: Avon Perfect Wear in Perpetual Pink
I am really happy with the way this look turned out! The colors are so pretty and they are very pigmented. I am enjoying this palette very much. Such a shame I waited so long to try it out!

I was iffy about NYX Thalia but I think it's the perfect lipstick for this look. Very subdued color.

Do you like?

Luv & Luk,

  4. @Jessy, thank you! Blue is a last choice for me. I love it on others but on me, the verdict is still out. LOL. Thanks for the compliment, though :)

    @socialitedreams, thank you! Yeah, I was sticking to the rule of a bold eye with a neutral lip :) I'm glad you liked it.

    @Love, Destinee, thank you very much! I'm happy to read such nice comments. Well, now that you've seen it in action, I hope you use it soon. I'd love to see the look you come up with!

  9. @makeupbyjem, thank you! I have to admit, Thalia is growing on me :)

    @frugalspender19, thank you! I was hoping this combo was going to work. I'm glad I got good feedback on it! LOL, I always do my makeup after I get dressed so my makeup usually matches my clothes. Bad habit!

  11. @Huda Kaake, thank you! This look made me feel like I did in the beginning of my makeup love. I used to feel like the looks I did were amazing. Then I started seeing all these real MUAs and I felt like I couldn't compare. I know I don't! LOL but this look gave me a little confidence :)

  18. This palette would intimidate me, I dont think I could really pull off blues. But this looks so good on you! I am loving it with your brown eyes :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Amber, yes you can pull of blues, I've seen it on your blog...and greens...and anything would look great on you with your light skin and colored eyes. You have amazing eyes period. Sometimes I feel weird wearing such bold colors and I wonder what others think of me in public but I like the way I look with bright eyes, LOL, so it's all good :)
