Natural Fuchsia Look

So today I gave the Stars Makeup Haven colors a try. I found them extremely easy to use and nicely pigmented, which surprised me, since they’re pressed eye shadows. In the past I’ve found that I get better color payoff with loose mineral makeup. However, the Stars Makeup Haven shadows I tried are really nicely pigmented. They also applied and blended very easily. I was anticipating some trouble since they’ve got an almost matte texture, but they were easy to work with. I think Creme d’Nude is my perfect my skin but better lid shade. Ciao Bella! worked surprisingly well for a crease color. I love Euphoria along the lower lash line, but I think any color would work well along the lower lash line. In fact, I’ll probably try this look again using an Aqua or Teal color, since Aqua/Teal/Turquoise is like the IT color for spring, and it’s one of my favorites.

I chose to use the Purple Rain lip liner instead of Hot Pink or Fuchsia because it enhances the blue reflect of the lipstick. Seriously if you love pink you NEED Azalea Blue. It’s so gorgeous.

I really love how this look turned out. I love the bold lips with the relatively neutral eye and the pop of color along the lower lash line. I think anyone can wear a bold color along the lower lash line. However, with pinks on me, I have to not bring the pink in all the way, or I look ill.
