Quite a difference
I was browsing Ulta the other day and saw these cute little Revlon eyeshadows. Each one was about $2.00 and I loved the color options. After a little bit more investigation, I saw that you can link them together and essentially create your own little palette.
The following is a very simple step by step, using the new colors from Revlon as well as products I already had.
*I have searched high and low online to link to these eyeshadows and they are nowhere to be found. Sorry about that. If you have an Ulta near you, pop in and check out an end cap near Revlon. That’s where I found these!
eyelid primer: Paint Pot in Painterly by Mac
eyeshadows: Revlon ( Blush, Taupe, and Cocoa)
double ended brush: bareMinerals (similar)
fluffy brush: Sephora
(not pictured) tight angle brush: ELF (looking for a new one, not in love with the ELF one. This one looks good!)
Using your ring finger, apply a bit of lid primer all over eyelids.
Apply taupe eyeshadow all over lid.
Using a crease brush, press darker cocoa eyeshadow into crease.
Using a tighter, smaller brush, apply lightest eyeshadow, blush, right above the lash line to “brighten” up the roundest part of your eyelid.
Finish with eyeliner and mascara!
lipstick: Revlon Lip Butter in SweetTart
Fairly simple, right? While these shadows don’t compare to my Mac eyeshadows, they are pretty good for the price. If you are going cheap with eyeshadow, make sure to invest in a good primer. That will help them give you the most color payoff as well as staying power.
