Hey everyone and Happy Sunday to you! There’s just something about spring/summer mornings when no one is awake and I get to sit with a hot fresh cup of coffee and ponder life. To tell the truth, it’s one of the few moments during the day when I have time to myself and so even if it’s early (and it usually is!), I treasure it.
Now – onto some new makeup to show you today! I’ve used new Wet N Wild products in this look, including: PhotoFocus Foundation in Shell Ivory, MegaGlo Illuminating Palette in Catwalk Pink, and ColorIcon Ombre Blush in In a Purple Haze. I also used two eyeshadow palettes I’ve shown before: Heart and Heavy and Hieroglyphic Heart.
It’s hard to tell you which shadow I used where in this look because Wet N Wild doesn’t have individual names for shadows in these two palettes. I did use all 6 shadows for this look though!
I will tell you that I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance to start, Too Faced Glossy Black Eyeliner for tightline/waterline, Wet N Wild MegaSlim Skinny Eyeliner for eyeliner, Hope Girl and Urban Decay Perversion for mascara, and It’s Skin Babyface natural eyebrow in 02.
For blush, I used the new ColorIcon Ombre Blush In a Purple Haze. Highlight was MegaGlo Illuminating Palette Catwalk Pink. Contour was from Wet N Wild Sunset Junction Blush & Glow trio.
In a Purple Haze is a pink to purple ombre blush. I had quite a lot of fall out when I used this (which I’ve used it multiple times) so even though I love the color on me, I’m not sure I’ll keep using it.
Catwalk Pink is a highlighting palette that comes off quite sheer but it packs a punch. It also has quite a bit of fall out but I really love how it looks on me.
I’m sure you’ve read and seen other bloggers talk about Wet N Wild’s new Photofocus Foundation which claims to “eliminate white particle reflection” when taking pictures and says it has been tested under seven light conditions with the top smartphone models.
Using the match list on Wet N Wild’s website, I decided to pick up Shell Ivory. The first time I used this, I was unsure if I picked up the right shade as it looked too pale for me. Now, though, I believe it is a good match (and my bathroom lighting is off!). I really do feel like I look better in my selfies and group photos. Is it psychology or does it actually work? Who knows!
I do want to add though that the foundation has a literal paint smell. Like, a can of paint that you’d buy at the hardware store. It is quite off-putting while I’m applying it but once it’s dried you can’t smell it. I haven’t really seen this mentioned in other reviews so I did want to mention it. I also think that this might have contributed to breaking out in three different “horn” type pimples – I’m going to keep using it and watching for reactions.
Okay – have you picked up any new makeup lately and should I pick up something new you’ve tried and liked?
Oh! I just remembered I didn’t tell you what’s on my lips! It’s Wet N Wild Liquid Catsuit in Nice to Fuschia.
