This week marks a momentous occasion. For some people, dare I say most people, this would not be an occasion at all. It would be a normal, everyday action that you wouldn’t bat an eyelash at. You see, I ordered my very first, honest to goodness, non-drugstore make up palette! I spent hours upon hours trying to find a palette that fit within my budget, brands that I want to support, and the colour range that I like wearing right now. So, which palette did I end up ordering?
The Be Beautiful Face and Eye Palette from BareMinerals!
I think in the next few months I’m going to finally splurge and order the Naked 3 palette- I love the blush nudes, but I don’t know that I’m quite ready to pay $75 CAD for it without any skills to actually use it. From all of my research, it seems that BareMinerals is a good brand for sensitive skin, and I love the colours here! I’m finally going to try different combinations, I like that this palette isn’t overwhelming in colour choices.
While I don’t know that I will use the blush in the bottom right corner (it’s a little dark for my pale tone), I think that I will actually be able to use the rest of the palette. That has been the biggest stumbling block on for me actually purchasing a palette- if I don’t feel like I’m going to use the majority of colours, I don’t want to spend $50+ on a palette when I’m not using it. Because I’m super pale, I tend not to wear darker colours- the wrong colour, and it can easily look like I have a black eye.
So, beauty bloggers- and really anyone who knows make up- please link me any basic eyeshadow tutorials you know of! Be it a written step by step tutorial or a Youtube, I’m entirely open and looking for guidance. Feel free to share as many as you want!
