Review: Makeup Show Goodies
I choose these colors with bridal makeup in mind, but it’s an overall great pallet for any occasion. I choose white to use as a base, highlighter, and mixing color. The matte cream color is perfect at brightening and highlighting the eyelid. I wanted a shimmery champagne color as a highlighter to use in the inner corner of the eye, on the bridge of the nose, and above the cheek bones. Peach is an amazing color for adding depth to the crease. Taupe is a wonderful neutral shade on the crease and is a flattering color for most skin tones. Warm brown is great to contour with, as a bronzer, and to use on the crease. Brown is a must for every pallet, it’s a useful color that can be applied on the eyebrows, the crease, and as an eyeliner. If you want to create a smokey eye, purple is a good alternative to gray. It’s also a color that pops in pictures. Use gray for a subtle smokey eye which can also be very neutral. Black creates drama by emphasizing the eyes. No pallet would be complete without it.
Colors: 327, 467, 337, 446, 373, 335, 612, 348, and 63.
I love that you can create your own pallet by choosing four colors. I decided on picking colors that were universal and compliment most skin types. I wanted a mauve, peach, bronze, and pink.
Colors: 27, 29,32, and 30.
Pink, berry, peachy, nude, and red are staple colors to have in your kit.
Colors: 29, 48.83, 80, and 12.
This beautiful pale pink lipstick is perfect with any smokey eye.
This powder keeps my makeup intact for the whole day!
This concealer is a smooth formula with impecable coverage. It’s not cakey, but build-able. After using this concealer, my dark circles were erased and my eyes looked more awake. I believe concealer is the one makeup product you can splurge on since it’s like a magic eraser that works wonders.
This is one of the best gel eyeliners I’ve ever used. My eyelids are a challenge since nothing seems to ever stick. Cailyn eyeliner gel is waterproof and stays on the whole day. Plus, it comes with a brush so you can take it on the go.
This is my all-time favorite bronzer. The color irresistablement gives me the perfect sun-kissed glow.
I’ve heard so many amazing things about the Beauty Blender so I had to see it to believe it! Now I understand what all the hype was all about. It’s a foundation applicator that creates a flawless complexion and leaves your skin looking airbrushed.
I passed on Bdellium brushes last year, but I couldn’t resist this time around! They are affordable and sturdy. I purchased the Studio Line eye brush set. It has almost every brush you would need for your eyes. The 12 piece eye brush set includes: 785S, 780S, 778S, 776S, 772S, 766S, 763S, 760S, 755S, 733S, 714S, and 710S.
I also decided to purchase a few more brushes: a fan brush (925), a kabuki brush (957), an bent eyeliner (708).
Everyone raves about Mario Badescu, so I had to see it for myself. I chose the vitamin C Serum to even out my skin tone. I’ve only been using it for a week and I already see a difference.
I had a wonderful time at the show. It was amazing experience learning new makeup techniques from prestigious makeup artists and other industry professionals. I was even fortunate enough to meet Lorie Taylor, Smashbox Cosmetics’ global pro lead makeup artist, who I admire.
