Rainbow Rave

A new look! Bright colors!

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Nyx Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil: Milk
Inglot Square Eyeshadow 371 Matte
Inglot Square Eyeshadow 60 AMC 
BH Cosmetics 88 Matte Palette
Elf liquid eyeliner Black(don't recommend)
NYC High Definition Volume Mascara
MAC Studio Fix powder

Okay, not my most interesting look, but I wore this to a neon dance over the summer. It was simple and it looks great on brown eyes.  I really wished that I had those eye shadows that glow under black-light by Sleek.  That would have creeped people out, though. Those or Sugarpill eye shadows would have been fantastic.

I hope that you enjoyed this look anyway, despite its simplicity. See you next time!

Hoola Bronzer

 Review time! One of the most renowned bronzers of all time. 

I love the packaging of Benefit powders.

 Okay, let's talk about this brush. Usually, brushes that come with powders are crap. They are a bad size, shape, and material. This brush, on the other hand, is great. The shape is fantastic for fitting right underneath the cheekbones. It's nice and dense and picks up powder well. Love.

Look at that color. Not too muddy, not too red. I've heard that people are supposed to choose a bronzer that has the undertone that you naturally tan to, and my undertone is just brown. Some people tan redder and some people tan yellower. This is perfect for brown.
This is the color. It's nice and powdery so that it blends well, but not so much so that it just brushes right off.  Perfect.

I cannot say enough good things about this powder.  It really is worth the $28 (or whatever it is). The color is fantastic, the texture is fantastic, the brush is fantastic. The packaging is the slightest bit shock resistant, so if you drop the box the powder doesn't break. At least it hasn't for me. The one things is that the mirror could be larger.  Buy this now!

Quick Tip: Not Wasting Powders

Hey, all! I'm back with a quick tip for you on how to use the last little bit of a powder.  Ever find yourself trying to get all the bang for your buck that you can by shoving your face brush into the corners of the pan just to get only the tiniest bit of powder on your brush.  It ends up taking forever to put on your face.  This is what I've been doing for a while that really helps get everything out of my powder that I can.

My most recent powder. It was just alright; I'll probably review it eventually.

I smoosh the end of my brush around the ring of the powder to break it up.

I put it into a clean pan that I've been using for this purpose for a while.

Empty pan!

I dump all these old powders together and then you shake them up to create a fine powder that you use like a loose powder.

Now, this works for me, but it won't be favorable for everyone.  It's just a lot quicker to get a good amount of powder on your brush this way than rather than in a tiny ring. Tell me if this works for you!
