A make-up post for you on sunday! I'm still playing around with my Etam eyeshadows and I will be playing around with this gorgeous Sleek palette I got for a couple of euros from fellow blogger Nathalie, I can't wait! So much make-up, so little free time!
So this color is, I think, my favorite of all the colors I have from Etam Beauty. It's this gorgeous mermaid-y blue-green color with lots of sparkle that creates a beautiful depth when you put it on. I absolutely love creating dramatic smokey eyes with this color, but it's also very wearable in a more subtle way.
From left to right: vert étoilé over primer, a blue base and a green base.
I CAN NOT stress enough how much fun it is to play around with bases. Especially with colors that are kind of holographic and have mulitple colors in them, it can make a world of difference and basically gives you a new color with every base. If you have some creamy eyepencils laying around, definitely try it out!
This is the look I did! I put a darker blue in the crease, a blue-green highlighter by essence in the inner corners and the rest is all vert étoilé!
For the neutral lips I used a nude lipgloss by Essence, which my sister swatched here. It goes with everything, costs less than 5 euro and feels really silky on the lips, so it's a big yes too. It doesn't last a very long time, but it's easy to reapply and I'm used to the reapplying, so for me that's not an issue.
HOW ABOUT THAT EYESHADOW THOUGH? Jebus, I can't stop looking at it. I keep looking at my swatched hand and thinking, everytime the light changes, "OMG IT SPARKLES". I'm a simple gal, people. So another BIG triumph for the Etam eyeshadows! My favorite thing about this eyeshadow is that it makes me feel like a mermaid, and mermaids are majestic as hell.
What's your favorite fairytale creature and CAN YOU THINK of a more majestic thing than mermaid eyeshadow?
