Product Spotlight: MUA Pro 25 Shade Eyeshadow Palette Tropical Oceana
I’ve become more adventurous with my makeup lately by trying new colors and products that are outside of my “comfort zone.” Everyone has a comfort zone when it comes to their beauty routine in some way. Some people might be very outgoing with changing up eyeshadow shades and liners, but may stick to the staple of using the same mascara. There are others who have signature lipstick hues and shades they always wear. Some people, like me, gravitate within the realm of neutral makeup ( also known as the no makeup makeup look ).
Today, I decided to challenge myself and create something very different: bold eyeshadow colors. It’s not my first time to create dramatic and saturated color looks; I just don’t do it very often. Also, when I do tend to find colors that work, I’ll cling to them and make them part of my secondary comfort zone. I realized there are a lot of colors in my palette that I’ve either just swatched or worn briefly just to see what the color looked like on my lids. Most of these colors I’ve never returned back to and it’s because I either didn’t have the confidence to or just got busy and forgot.
Fridays are perfect days to try out new looks for me. I can get comfortable with eyeshadow changes and refine my technique enough so it plans come up for the weekend, I have a new look to rock out. It’s always a good idea to test a new hairstyle or makeup look/product before debuting it at an event or on a date. You can troubleshoot anything you need to, so nothing unexpected pops up at the last minute.
MUA’s Pro 25 Shade Eyeshadow Palette in Tropical Oceana is the palette I’m working with today, and here are three really great looks you can achieve using this fabulous palette.
- All over color with bold mascara and brows: To achieve this look, choose one of the more vibrant colors in the palette. Use a flat shading brush to pack the color onto your lid, then a fluffy blending brush to diffuse the color upward to your brow bone. Be sure to use a very black mascara to make your eyes pop, and use a brow gel or pencil that is the same shade of your brows. This will give you a really simple, yet powerful look.
- Three tone look: Choose the shade you wish to feature, then use your flat shading brush to apply the color onto your lid. Then chose the shade darker than and lighter than the primary color. Blend the lighter shade from the inner corners to the middle of your lids with a fine detail brush and use the darker color in the crease. Again, I would skip the liner and use just a really dynamic black mascara with this.
- Pop art line: This is really simple. Make sure your brows have been groomed and are done, then dip a thin liner brush into the color of your choice. Proceed to create a mid-thick line ( as if you’re doing a dramatic cat eye ) along the upper lash line on your eyelid. Then finish with a bold mascara. This will be more of a “naked” look, but it makes a big impact.
