Warning: This is going to be long and by long yes I do mean even longer than my last post :)
Several days ago I opened up my mailbox and saw the most beautiful metallic pink package I have ever seen. It was sent to me by the wonderful Miss. Stella of Stella Starish Cosmetics. <--- Click the link to check out her website! Honestly opening it seriously felt like Christmas in July. Inside was the cutest Hello Kitty card with a handwritten message and a P.S. that said she had included some goodies for my daughter. Now anyone who knows me knows that I have an eight year old named Alyssa who is basically my clone. We act alike, talk alike and in our free time play with makeup. Stella had sent her some adorable nail decals and some candy. This not only made Alyssa’s day but to me shows how caring and sweet Stella is.
Now for my goodies! She sent me a pair of lashes, nail decals and a metallic silver drawstring bag filled 13 eye shadows in every color from pinks to blues to yellows to greens. She did a wonderful job choosing them for me because they are all colors that I would have picked myself. The shadows come in 5 gram sifter jars with a gold Stella Starish label on top. Each one is shrink wrapped and even has a sifter seal sticker so you know for sure that you will receive them in perfect condition without losing any product. I quickly opened and swatched them and then spent the next several minutes just staring at the beautiful, sparkly, pigmented colors on my arm. I was so anxious to try them that I decided to do a look right then.
Since I am now the proud new owner of this blog I thought I would try doing a little pictorial to go with my look. I hope that it is helpful and I would absolutely love to hear your feedback. Is this even helpful? Is it something you would like me to do again? I would also LOVE to see pictures if any of you try this out. Oh and a huge thank you to my favorite 8 year old Alyssa for her being my photographer!
Using a fluffy shadow brush apply a matte nude shadow like Urban Decay Foxy all over from your crease to your brow.
Using that same small flat shadow brush and same patting motion apply a bright pink like Stella Starish Eros on the other half of your eye.
Now use a fluffy blending brush (my all time must have favorite it the MAC 224)and that same bright pink shadow and blend it up into your crease. Also blend the line in between the pink and white shadow on your lid.
Then fill in your brows and apply liner to the top and bottom lash lines winging it out on the sides and creating a small point in your inner eye.
Now apply some mascara and lashes
For your lip use a shimmery nude like MAC Pretty Please and blend it with a shimmery light shadow like Stella Starish Circinus.
