Amuse MATTE-C Single Eyeshadows

These eye shadows are super duper pigmented, but some shades can be a bit chalky, as seen in the pictures above of shade #B2 which is a bright yellow. Even they are suppose to be matte, some of them come across as a satin pearl finish. But they are still pretty and long lasting! I got them for a .99 at a local discount store, but these can be found on for $1.25 each.  NET WT: 0.21 OZ/6G
Overall Rate:20
Pigmentation: 5
Price: 5
Longevity: 5
Packaging: 5

★bombshell beginners guide★simple blue smokey eye using eyeliner pencil (no makeup brush)

This eye look was achieved using l.a. colors "electric blue" eyeliner pencil, and false lashes. No makeup brushes were used. I used my fingers to apply concealer and smudge eye liner. Eyeliner was added to top and bottom lash line, tight line and waterline. False lashes #015 were added for dramatic effect although not required for this look, mascara or none at all would be just as fabulous. This a easy and simple look to do for a beginner who wants to dapple in color or someone who doesn't have a lot of makeup choices on hand, but still wants to look glamorous.
