pastel colors in eye makeup

Last year I wanted to paint in pastel colors when I received a package with a palette “By BEAUTY BAY The Pastels Palette”.

The palette By BEAUTY BAY The Pastels Palette disposes to a calm and spring look, which I wanted to complement with eyeliners in the same range, but from a different company – Dulzura Cosmetics UV Pastel Liner Collection.

As you can imagine, I decided to keep reviews on cosmetics to a minimum. According to statistics, only a few are interested in them. Therefore, in order not to upset that small number of review lovers, I decided to sometimes combine reviews with makeup, like today.

Here she is – the inspiration for today’s look: the palette of eyeshadow “By BEAUTY BAY The Pastels Palette”.

It’s easy to guess what I liked about her. Of course, the range and combination of shades. Despite the abundance of palettes on the market, I have not seen anyone like her.

She dictates a certain image that cannot be made “heavy”. With her, you will always get a light and airy eye makeup.

The quality of the palette itself is so-so. The pigmentation upset me. Several coats are required for the color to be visible. Therefore, makeup with only one palette seemed boring to me and I added color accents using the Dulzura Cosmetics UV Pastel Liner Collection.

They work on the same principle as watercolor. The amount of water determines how bright or faded the line will turn out: less water – brighter color, more water – dull color.

There is even nothing to say about resilience: it is absent. Makeup will drip if water gets on your eyes. Therefore, I use it when I am sure of the weather outside the window.

And to make the makeup look spring, I decided to supplement it with freckles. It is with them that I associate the warm season. So they had to be drawn using the Soft Brown Natural QT Mark Freckle Pen from ColourPop.

By the way, a pointless thing and do you know why? Because the highlighter works the same way as the eyebrow highlighter I’ve been using for freckles since 2017. If you are interested in step-by-step instructions, then to you in the article “How to draw freckles: life hacks of makeup artists”

And even if the “special” marker is inexpensive – $ 8, but why buy it if it is no different from thousands of other eyebrow markers. They even have the same palette: light brown. Here’s the whole review for you: capacious and to the point!)
