You can give me the brightest, most colorful palette in the world and I’ll still manage to make a soft and natural look with it. I can’t help it. I’m just not into bright colors on my eyes. I prefer bright colors on my lips and cheeks and lately I haven’t even been into that.
I recently received this palette from BA STAR and I’m quite digging the colors. They are right up my alley! Purple, gold, taupe…yep, that’s me! Today’s look was an extremely neutral one though. It probably doesn’t look like much, but for me it was just enough to give me that ‘polished’ look. I wasn’t going anywhere and I’ve been feeling a little under the weather lately, so I didn’t feel like overdoing it.

Spicy Natural Eye Shadow Palette by BA Star
I applied the champagne color on my eyelids and under my eyebrows; the brown (which has a reddish undertone) in the crease and the purple in the outer v area to darken everything up a bit. The shadows each have a satin finish and are easy to blend. My favorite color is the champagne one, for my skin tone it’s a very nice highlight!
-Essence Blush Up Powder Blush in ’10 Heat Wave’ (first time using it; not sure if I like it, because it seemed to fade really fast.)
-Sleek Contour Kit in ‘Medium’
– Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in ‘890 Brun Jungle’
