Makeup Revolution #Slay palette!

Hey guys, so I guess you could say I’ve jumped on the peachy eye shadow band-wagon. Never in my life would I have ever thought I would wear orange eye shadow. Honestly, what is my life these days? I'm almost 28 and I’ve started wearing colors on my eyes I never would have even considered a year ago! So needless to say, I’m going to tell you guys what I did to get this look using the Makeup Revolution #Slay Eye Shadow Pallette! First things first, I am one of those weirdos who does their eye shadow before their face makeup. I always get fallout under my eyes and on the tops of my cheeks. If I do a winged eyeliner, I’ll do it after the rest of my makeup, but before my mascara. Otherwise my lashes get in my way, lol. For a primer, I use the Hard Candy eye shadow primer “Eyes the Limit”. It has a silky creamy texture with a little nude color to it. Now to the fun part, the colors! I recently bought the Makeup Revolution palette called #Slay. It has ten very pigmented shadows in it, only four of them are the matte. That and the fact that there were warm shades in it, is what pulled me in. I love a good satin or shade, but mattes are perfect for transitional shades and more glam looks. Although shimmer and glam go hand in hand lol.

I start out with putting the shade ‘Great’ all over my lids, making sure to put it on while the primer is still tacky. There is a fine shimmer in it, so it helps if the primer still has some stickiness to it. I then put a little of the golden bronze ‘Impress’ on the inner quarter. On the upper part of my lid I put a light wash of ‘Destroy’ and ‘#Slay’ make everything blend out softly. For the crease I tap into the orange ‘Impress’ and ‘Killed It’ for that reddish peachy vibe I’m focusing this look on. I blend until I like the level of hazy soft blending. If the color isn’t as vibrant as I want, I add more and continue blending. The outer corner and into the crease I blend in the color ‘Hit’. If I’m wanting to keep it less smoky, I skip the last step and I’ll maybe add some ‘Queen’ to warm it up even more. Today I am skipping ‘Hit’ and just adding ‘Queen’. Next I use a warm soapy wash cloth and wipe away any fallout, with this palette I haven’t had much at all.

Now time to beat my face. I always make sure I have a freshly washed and moisturized face! I use the Biore charcoal face wash and the Nicel Daily Repair with Vitamin A and Retinol. For primer I use the Elf Mineral Primer in Green to reduce the redness on my cheeks, in the creases my nose and any redness from blemishes. On days I was more of a full coverage look I use my Real Techniques Perfection Complexion sponge damp. For foundation I’m currently using the Cover Girl 3in1, I make sure I blend down the neck. Otherwise you’ll end up with a “mask”, which just isn’t cute lol. I recently purchased two new concealers, the Ulta Full Coverage waterproof concealer in Light Warm, it’s the lightest shade with a yellow undertone. I also got the L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealer in Light Ivory. I’m still testing them both out right now. So far I like the Ulta one for under my eyes and on any spots. But I also like the L.a Girl one for the same things. I just don’t know which I like better as of right now! For setting and caking everything I am in love with the Coty Airspun loose face powder in Neutral Natural, it’s so silky and finely milled. I bronze and pretend to contour with the Wet N Wild Coloricon Contouring Pallet in Dulce De Leche and I use my favorite, yet discontinued Avon blush in Classic aura, it’s a natural tone pinky mauve. I highlight with a highlighter I made myself that’s a soft frosty pink, I’m obsessed with it. To finish up everything I lightly pencil in my brows with the Jordana fabubrow in dark brown, then I brush it through. It is too dark for me so I have to use a light hand with it. For mascara I use the Holy Grail, and always trusty Maybelline The Rocket in Waterproof. After my mascara dries I tight line and line my waterline with Rimmel waterproof sparkling black eyeliner. After that, use a little of the orange ‘Impress’ and ‘Queen’ to lightly smoke out the lash line! I recently bought a J.Cat kissproof liquid lipstick in Champagne Buzz, I love it! It’s very thin and pigmented for being only like four dollars. Right now I don’t have any setting spray, so I use water in a spray bottle to settle down the powders and prevent them from looking cakey. Although it doesn’t do anything but setting everything down, I still use it for now. I need recommendations for a setting spray that won’t break my bank, and that will hold up to sweat lol. If you know of any good ones, hit up the comments section.
