Makeup with gray shadows from The Balm Meet Matt (e) Ador palette pushed me to philosophical reasoning …
I sit and think – how good is it – to be always dissatisfied with my work? On the one hand, this is a plus. Dissatisfaction is an extra kick. On the other hand, constant self-criticism suppresses creativity.
But today, about something else: test drive the palette, which means you will see the makeup with gray shadows from the palette The Balm Meet Matt (e) Ador. I always try new products with caution. You never know what to expect.
I wanted to keep my makeup everyday, which means no shading to the temple and eyebrows. I barely went beyond the crease of the eyelid with a squirrel bristle brush and carefully worked the outer corner of the eye.
I left the inner corner for the lightest shadows. Their satin finish allows you to simulate smooth transitions in contrast to matte shadows. This is the plus of satin shadows. I would say – a huge plus!
But from the mucous membrane of the eye, I decided to “play” and chose two shades of pencil: black and green. First I applied black, and green on top. At the junction, the colors mixed with each other and got a smooth transition. But before that, I did not forget about one important step – drying the inner eyelid, which I talked about in detail here…
I have not used shade mat and even primer, which I regretted in half an hour. The shadows rolled and the color faded.
Yes, in the 21st century there is not a single shadow that does not require a base under the shadow. Such is the harsh marketing truth.
