Shady Lady look

Using my Shady Lady palette was awesome due to the fact that the shadows are easy to manage and are true in color. I just wanted to clarify that this palette is mostly for earthy or neutral looks...whatever color you fancy you can use to your liking.....You can use only 1 color by itself or dress it up by adding color in the crease or adding a contour color, etc.

Sure you can't really identify a bright, funky color in the palette but you can also spike it with the darkest shade for a dramatic look.

Anywho, here is the Soft greenish Taupe look I came up with:

I remember briefly talking about the palette in my May Haul posting but just to reiterate the palette can be found at Sephora.com, I'm not sure about Sephora stores, I have checked but found nothing. I found that buying The Balm products from their website are cheaper since Sephora.com will charge you tax and shipping.
The Balm also offers a few other beauty products such as lipstick, blush, and tinted moisturizer to name a few...and the packaging is quite cute as it echos a similarity with Benefit cosmetics!

Sorry...I had to!

The palette has plenty of neutral colors....and they are very versatile.....

What I used:

On the lid - Insane Jane
Contour area and lower lashline - Makeout Mary
Crease and outer V - Bossy Bobbi
Highlight and inner corner - Devilish Danielle
Upper lashline - Maybelline Line Stiletto
Mascara - Loreal Voluminous, Carbon Black
Lower lashline liner - MAC Smooth Blue Technakohl liner

Revlon Colorstay foundation makeup Natural Tan
Prescriptives camo concealer
Physicians Formula bronzer
MAC blush Peachtwist

NYX Ever liner
Sally Hansen moist and matte lip color Linen


  1. Very pretty! I love how your eyes are smoked out but soft at the same time. I never heard of this palette til now, I knew about the Balm but just didn't know they had this palette. I just checked it out on Sephora, it's pretty reasonably priced too. I may cave and get it, beautiful colors!

  2. The lipstick is gorgeous did not know sally hansen had lipsticks.
