FOTD: Changeling

I haven’t posted a makeup look in ages. In fact, I haven’t created one worth documenting in ages either. I did this waaaay back in April. Whoops.

This look started out with the intent of using TopShop Chameleon Glow Changeling, but the name of the shadow and its incredible color shift kind of took over and it evolved into this.

Aaaand I just realized that I never did post pics of that gorgeous eyeshadow! So, here you go:

TopShop Chameleon Glow Changeling

Looks mildly interesting in the pan. Reddish with a green shift. Okay, what makes it special?

Feast your eyes:

How pretty is this?? It has such a delicious, delicate iridescent sheen, and that color shift! I don’t have anything else like this in my stash. It is utterly unique.

FOTD: I Feel Like A Million Dollars

fotd i feel like a million dollars day

I finally got to play around a bit with the pieces I picked up from the Rosie for Autograph makeup collection. Since it’s still new, and I’ve been getting the most traffic from those search words ;) here’s a day-to-night FOTD!

I know my swatches makes it seem like the eyeshadows aren’t hyper pigmented, but they’re not slackers either. I’d say they’re about medium pigmentation. They build and blend easily, and I love how beautifully they reflect light.

Inventory, London 2015/2016 – Blushes, Bronzers, Highlighters

It’s no secret now that blush is my Kryptonite. I brought way too much to London, and I managed to pick up a few more. Oops. Between this stash here and the one I left back in Hawaii, I think it’s safe to say I can go on a permanent no-buy for blush, and I’ll be set for life.

I also brought my entire collection of loose powder everything, in hopes that I’d use them because I have less options. Not so. I don’t have the best set-up for makeup application, and these are too messy to deal with most days.
