Fun Summer Makeup | BH Hollywood Palette & Milani Foil Liner
For some reason, I've gotten back into experimenting with makeup. Something about the summer brings out the desire to be creative, I guess.
This time I'm using the BH Hollywood Palette. I've had this palette for a while, but I've not done much with it, even though I love the colors. It may be that I didn't have an occasion to wear such vivid hues. Since it's finally summer, there's no reason not to wear them!
Normally, I use more neutral colors and purples, or black and reds. This time, I try a bit of lime green and blue. I do mix in quite a bit of purple. It's hard not to. I found the matte shadows in the BH Hollywood Palette to be pigmented, smooth and easy to blend. The shimmers are a little gritty and not as pigmented, but they are still very pretty and easy to blend. This collection also comes with blush that I did not use this time.
I'm pairing the BH Hollywood Palette with Fierce Foil Eyeliner by Milani in Purple Foil (of course, purple ;). I love this stuff! It's dark, because the base is black, and it's sparkly. It goes on very smoothly, like most good gel eyeliner. You also get a nice brush applicator. The liner can be blended out to create a smoky look. I'll be sure to try that next time.
