On my many trips to my drugstore of choice, (Walgreens!), I was shopping for items that I needed and yet I always find myself checking out the cosmetics aisle! I always gravitate towards the eyeshadows because as we all know – you can never have enough! In particular, I was looking for a color palette because the manufacturers do all of the color pairing work for you!
What did I walk away with? Wet-n-Wild Color Icon Eye Shadow in Pride (shown above). This color collection gives you three complimentary shades in a matte finish and a highly pigmented effect. That’s cool for me because I have a day and night look all in the same palette and the combos are endless! The colors are deep so you don’t need a whole lot. The only drawback is the color can fade after awhile, so I definitely suggest using a eye primer to solve that problem! The price can’t be beat either ($4.99 at Walgreens) and that definitely gets brownie points with me!
So how did I rock this eyeshadow today?
- I first applied the white color shade in the matte finish and applied to my eyelids.
- Then I applied the medium green color (also matte finish) and applied to my creases. I used my index finger to make sure I blended the two colors really well.
- Finally I took the blue color (in…you guessed it! Matte finish) and applied a little bit to the corners of my eyes and blended it in.
I finished my look with Sparkle Berry lip gloss from Mary Kay and here’s the final result:
