EOTD: Coastal Scents Revealed 2

Hi lovelies!

So, I went out the other night, and decided to play around with my new Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette ($19.95) to see what kind of fun nighttime look I could achieve.

Coastal Scents Revealed 2

This is what I came up with:


I am going to apologize in advance if this comes off as being overly complicated; it is a pain in the ass   little bit difficult to explain a look when the eyeshadow colors do not have names; I had to assign the colors numbers in the order I used them, which makes it a bit monotonous, but we do what we can, right?

To get this look, I applied Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer all over my lid from lashline to brow. I then applied a thin layer of Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in Inked in Pink all over my lid to set a base.  Using the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette, I applied color number 1 as a transition color, sweeping it onto my entire crease and blending out. I applied color number 2 to my lid, up until the crease. I then took color number 3 and used it to deepen the outer half of my crease. I used color number 4 on my outer v, blending it ever so slightly into the outer crease, and then used a tiny bit of color number 5 to add a little more depth to the outer v. To get a bit more of a gradient effect, I used shade number 6 just above the transition color, and then shade number 7 to highlight my brow bone. As a final step, I dipped a pencil brush into color number 8 and used it to brighten my inner corners and smudged a little underneath my inner lower lash line, and I also swept a little bit of number 2 on my outer lower lashline.

To complete the look, I applied Wet n' Wild On the Edge Creme Liner by Fergie in Little Black Dress to my upper lashline, winging it out a bit. I used Revlon Colorstay Creme Gel Eyeliner in Charcoal on my lower waterline. I applied two coats of MUFE Smoky Extravagant Mascara in black to my upper and lower lashes, followed by Eylure Naturals Eyelashes in No. 031.

I have to say, the more I experiment with the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette, the more I like it! There is a lot of versatility in this palette; at first glance, many of the colors do look quite similar, but they really take on a life of their own when applied! You can create endless looks with this palette, from sparkly night-on-the-town to subdued-work-day. I'm so glad I decided to purchase it, and I highly recommend it!

What's your current favorite versatile palette? Do you own the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette? If so, do you have a go-to combo?

Thanks for spending some time with me today; until next time...

Live a beautiful life!
