If you can get your hands on a wet n wild I ♥ Matte palette, I highly recommend it. It is AMAZING.
For this look, I only used the matte palette. Only. It's what makes me love it...it has a great combo of neutrals and brights, making it be totally versatile.

Yup. Another look featuring Bare Escentuals. This time though, instead of using The Playlist palette, I'm using two beautiful bareMinerals eyecolors. Angel (bottom lashline), one of the brand's newer colors, is a bright and vibrate, matte violet. True Gold (my lid color) is the most gorgeous warm yellow gold. The name says it all. It really is a True Gold.

Hi, my name is Amy aka LadycrowX!
I have been into makeup since 2008 when I got hooked on watching Youtube tutorials. I currently write a blog called The Crow and the Powderpuff where you'll find posts about Makeup Tutorials, Product Reviews, Product Swatches, and anything pertaining to beauty. I am currently in the process of moving further into beauty subjects as well such as Nails, Hair, and Fashion.
I also have a Youtube channel where you can find video tutorials of the looks I do.
In my spare time when I am not blogging or doing makeup you can usually find me playing video games, watching anime, reading, or doing anything involving nerdiness. I enjoy fantasy based movies, books, and games.
I did this look based off an old look I had done a while back and I hope you enjoy it!

If you've been reading my blog lately, you know of my adoration of the new bareMinerals pressed palettes, namely The Playlist, a Limited Edition 8-color palette released for the holidays. This look is perfectly wearable and slightly smokey making it work for both day and night, and would look great with nearly any lipcolor.
