It’s the 21 Days of Beauty at Ulta and now is such a great time to stock up on favorites or try new things! Today, March 20th my all-time favorite eyeshadow base, MAC Paint Pot, is 50% off making it just $11.00!
I used Painterly for years before I ventured into Soft Ochre. Then I tried Bare Study and Vintage Selection. Every single one is beautiful on it’s own, or used under eyeshadow as a primer. It preps the eye perfectly for eyeshadow to blend seamlessly. It’s truly one of the easiest makeup items I’ve used for years and years, and it always delivers results.
Also 50% off today is the Sara Happ The Lip Slip Luxe Clear Gloss. I haven’t tried this product personally but at only $10 today it’ll be hard to pass up. It comes highly reviewed and seems like a great gloss to wear alone or over a lipstick!
There are even more items on sale today, and for the rest of the 21 Days of Beauty event that runs until April 6th! You can check out the calendar here to see what is on sale!
I wanted to change up my eye makeup look and shot a little step by step eye tutorial for you using a pretty new palette by Tarte. It’s the Keep Calm Sunnies On palette and it’s filled with beautiful shades for spring and summer. I actually loved the blue Pool Party shade (color me shocked!) and was inspired to use it as eyeliner in a very subtle way. The result was beautiful and I’m actually planning on recreating the look and amping up the blue even more.
I started, of course, with the MAC Paint Pot in Vintage Selection. This is a pretty shimmery shade that was too pretty to cover up, so I simply added the shade Spring Break from the Tarte palette to the outer corner for depth.
Then I used a small pointed brush, like this one, and pressed some of the blue shade from the palette onto my lash line. I added the thinnest line of chocolate brown eyeliner to my lash line simply to fake the look of thicker lashes, but not necessarily to add definition to my eye if that makes sense.
I finished with Benefit Roller Lash mascara on top and bottom lashes, and my lipstick was a new addition to my collection in the shade Medium Rare of the Liptensity Lipstick by MAC.
Do you have your eye on anything specific that is on sale during the 21 Days of Beauty at Ulta? I may have to pop in to the store on April 4th to grab the Buxom palette because it looks pretty perfect.
