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:

Eyes:
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

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

Lips:
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!
