Blue and Purple wet n wild Eyes



The Blue Had Me At Hello and Petal Pusher 8-pan palettes from wet n wild are just love. LOVE.
Affordable, pigmented palettes? How can someone not love them? You all might already know that blues and purples are among my top favorite eyeshadow colors and together they're even moreso. The deep blue combined with the glowing lighter purple make for a colorful smokey eye type look.

88 Metal Palette | Jeweltone Eyes and MAC Dupes



I did a look like this a while ago using MAC eyeshadows...Gorgeous Gold, Amber Lights, and Star Violet. It was RandomJazzica on Twitter who was wondering about product dupes so I figured I'd recreate the look using different products. I ended up using the 88 Metal Palette for this look and it turned out so incredibly close to the original version.

MAC Redhead Mineralize Skinfinish | Swatches and Thoughts



It was quite a few years ago when Redhead Mineralize Skinfinish was released with MAC's Brunette Blonde Redhead collection. I absolutely fell in love with it back then but it sold out so quickly that I never got my hands on it. Recently though it was repromoted with the Naturally collection...now it's mine! ♥

MAC Satin Taupe and Satellite Dreams | Inspired by MorenaBarbee



If you haven't heard of her, I seriously suggest you check out the lovely Rai (MorenaBarbee)from Glam Morena.She has an amazing blog and is quite the beauty vlogger as well. It was a short while ago when she did a tutorial for this look using a Coastal Scents palette...so incredibly gorgeous! The second I saw it, I had to recreate it. However, I wanted to use different products even though I have the same palette that she used, so I went with my trusty MAC eyeshadows. It just shows that anyone can recreate a look with the products they have...no need to go out and buy new things! Enjoy! :)

Urban Decay 15-Year Anniversary Palette | Teal and Brown Eyes



I absolutely love my Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette! It's still my all-time favorite Urban Decay palette. This look implements some gorgeous brown and neutral shadows, and the one teal shadow slightly smoked out. The finished look is a clean teal smoky eye that works for any eye color, but especially makes brown eyes pop.

Gold Smokey Eyes | MAC Notoriety Quad



The Notoriety Quad from MAC, part of the 2009 Makeup Art Collection, is one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes. The gold in it is stunning. For this look I used every color in the quad, in addition to two other MAC eyeshadows--Wedge and Carbon. On my lips I'm rocking Viva Glam Gaga 2 and Balmshell Yummy Mummy lipgloss. A perfect nude lipstick combo.

MAC Dazzlesphere Plum Ornament | Sparkling Plum Eyes



I was quite disappointed that this look didn't photograph and stunningly as it was in real life. The crushed metal pigments from the MAC Dazzlesphere Plum Ornament are simply gorgeous and they just don't appear that way in the pictures. Regardless, I really loved this look. Light Violet and Grape were the only 2 colors I used for this...Light Violet is AMAZING!

Sugarpill Rainbow Eye



Just a quick post for you using the Burning Heart quad and Lumi loose eyeshadow from Sugarpill! I also used Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Deviant on my waterline, and MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack for winged liner.

Enjoy!
