MUA Ever After and Smokin Palette in Action

Hello everyone,

my Palette swatch blog Posts about the Ever After Matte Palette and Smokin Palette are continously the most red ones, so I figured as there is so much interest I do a blog Post with two different Looks I did with them.

Surprisingly Ever After turned out to be my favourite Palette despite me never having been a fan of Matte eye shadows. That´s a big compliment for the Palette. I use it for an every day subtle look, sometimes in a more subtle Version such as in the Pictures shown, some times using the darker shades to give it more depth. I went for a "barely there" natural look for the first Pictures. I took both Pictures with and without Flash to Show the effect :-) Top Row is without Flash, Bottom Row with.










 
In case you are not familiar with "Boardwalk Empire". This is
Gillian. She is sick, twisted, evil and... has beautifull hair :-D
With the Smokin Palette I had another Styling idea in mind. I wanted to do something 1920s flapper style. Now waves are not my strenght, but I finally found a way now to achieve them.... i wrapped my hair around a straightening iron. And achieved.... A pretty Gillian Darmoody from Boardwalk Empire Hairstyle! (which I didn´t notice until I actually looked at the photos I had taken the photos :-D)Sure it Needs more perfection, but as it was only a first try i am confident now.




 

 


 And for the Bonus I took one photo with my Vintage half moon manicure. Featuring my new MUA nailpolish in "Plum Noir".
 
So... The Ever After Matte Palette will probably remain my best pal for everyday while Smokin will get to shine when i try to make a Statement. Iam very happy with both my purchases :-)
