I would like to start off by stating I’m not a professional makeup artist, any knowledge and techniques I know ,I learned off YouTube and Instagram. If did any thing wrong I’m sorry.
Now that we got that out of the way , let’s talk about the look . I had a wedding to go to today so I decided to do something different. I don’t play around with colour a lot but I decided I should do a pop of colour.So I came up with this look ⬇️.
Let me know if you guys like it. It’s my first time doing something “dramatic” ish.
On my face :
Primer: Becca backlight priming filter and Smashbox finish foundation primer.
Foundation: Makeup forever hd foundation.
Concealer : Benefit erase paste and Nars radient creamy concealer.
Bronzing and Contouring: La girl hd pro concealer in toast as my cream contour and to set it I used Kat Von D’s shade and light contouring palette.
Hightlight and baking: I recently got into baking. I usually never bake under my eyes cause it really makes my under eye area dry and it looks really bad. I bake under my contour for a sharper look so for that I used the Nyx hd setting powder And to highlight I used the becca shimmering skin perfector in Champagne Pop.
On my eyes:
I used a mix of shadows from the urban decay ammo palette and the carli bybel palette. My linner is the Maybelline gel linner. I did use some fake lashes , sorry I don’t know wheat company I just got them locally and they did not come with a brand name. I filled my brows with a really dark brown shadow, I don’t do much with my eyebrows.
On my Lips:
Mac’s lip liner in Soar and Mac’s lipstick in Whirl.
I hope this information was helpful.please let me know your thoughts and I’m open to all criticism.
As you read by the title , I’ll be reviewing the not so new Carli Bybel palette. I bought this palette about almost a month ago and honestly I have never been this impressed and excited about a palette in a long time.
Here’s a picture of the palette inside, it comes with 10 eye shadows and 4 highlighters.
There are four matte shades , one semi matte and five beautiful shimmery shades. I’ll include swatches in a bit but first I’ll would like to talk about the formula. I’m gonna be honest I wasn’t expecting the matte shades to be that pigmented but they ended up surprising me , they’re really pigmented and they feel really buttery and smooth. They blend like a dream and it’s the same with the shimmery eye shadows, the pigmentation is out of this world. They feel amazing . I personally like the shimmery ones better than the matte ones.
Eye shadows. L-No flash , R- with flash.
Highlighters. L- No flash, R- With flash.
Swatches of the shadows and highlighters. Top are the shadows and the one under are the highlighters.
From the swatches you can tell how pigmented these are , the shimmery one can be a little “crumbly” but when applied on eyes I didn’t notice much fallout. A tip to make the shimmery shadows pop even more would be to spray it with a fixing spray , I use fix + by Mac. My small problem with this palette would be the scent, now I’m not sure f every one got a palette with a super strong scent like I did but the strong did put me off at first but it’s slowly going away or maybe I got too used to it. Other than that I love this palette so much not only because it’s made by one of my favourite youtubers but also because how good the quality is of this product. It’s also a great value , it’s only for $12.50 .
I would also like to include that the features and benefit that are states in the website about this palette:
1. Highlighting powders can be used on face and eyes.
3. Paraben free.
4. Allergy tested.
5. Non- irritating.
6. Clinically proven.
7. Creuelty free.
I would rate this 5/5. I hope you like my review 😊
