A hilarious play on words there, I think you'll agree...
It seemed even more difficult than usual to drag my bones from my bed this morning. Then despite a lovely shower using Villainess products (more about them coming up in another post), I still felt sluggish and could muster no enthusiasm for getting ready for work. I wasn't sure what to do regarding make-up and then I decided to use my new Yaby palette for inspiration.
I decided a little twist of colour might help get me going, or at least help me feign the appearance of being full of verve and dynamism. High hopes indeed.
I then took a teal blue shimmer pearl paint (third from left, second row down) and smudged it along the lash line before winging it up towards the outer end of my eyebrow. I then used a MAC 217 to gently blend the teal up slightly and soften the hard edges. I used a tiny bit of the deeper teal shadow (top row, third from right) to intensify the colour and continued to blend and soften. I highlighted the brow bone and inner corner of each eye with a shimmery cream shadow (top row, fourth from right).
I was really impressed with the Yaby shadows and pearl paint I used. The colour is true to the palette, even with the tiny bit of product I needed to use. They spread well across the lid, even on top of the UDPP. Blending was easy yet I lost none of the intensity of colour. The look lasted well throughout the day too and I didn't have any creasing. I'm looking forward to trying more looks with the palette.
FYI, The finished 'd-eye-namic' look (there is just NO stopping me) was helped somewhat by a decent amount of MAC Select Moisture Cover concealer to disguise the bags under my eyes. Thank Yaby it's Friday.
