I am going to go backwards and start with my observation. I am in an eyeshadow RUT. Which is just fucking ridiculous because i have about fifty palettes, not to mention trios, quads, duos, and singles. I have come up with a simple solution–I am just going to limit myself to ONE palette for an entire week at a time! I hope this will force me to be creative and get to know my palettes more intimately and form longer stronger bonds with them. God, that sounds like relationship advice..”you need to spend more time together as a couple”.
It’s true though–your makeup IS like being in a longterm committed relationship. You have committed yourself to look fabulous and to use these tools and products to do so. Sometimes it’s love/hate–those days when you just can’t get your wings to work, your foundation is for the wrong season and doesn’t match, you sneeze during mascara application. Sometimes, you neglect your makeup partner–you might go a day (or twenty) without touching it at all. Your relationship could be abusive–left to melt in a hot car, dropped, smashed, unwashed brushes, cracked lids. But at the end of the day you love them and they have the capacity to make you your best you.
THus I am going to introduce you to the palette this week. I am actually already on Day 2 of this palette. A month or two ago Hautelook had a beauty bag from Crown Brush for sale, and I am a sucker for beauty boxes and bags.
Hopefully I can make this a Sunday thing…summarize the looks of a palette and show the flexibility and variety of which each is capable. Maybe I will be able to pick favorites! HA.
Did any of you grab this Hautelook bargain? Or does anyone else want to do my palette challenge?!
