With spring just two months away how can you not daydream about an Escape to Paradise?!
This color palette from Artistry available on March 1st is truly a cosmetic escape from the winter blues.
The compact – which holds four eye shadows, two blushers, one highlighter and a bronzer – comes in a sleek and stylish case and offers a soft, seasonal selection of pastels and neutrals.
For my first post on divalicious blog, I got to test the palette on the diva herself.
Here’s the step-by-step on how I created the look (scroll down for photos)…
I first highlighted under the brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes with Fusion, a champagne shimmer.
Then, at the outer corner and through the crease I swept the gold flecked, Bone.
Next, I dabbed my brush in Iris, a shimmering lavender, and Lotus, a light pink, tojust the middle of the lid and blended it outward to give a hint of color.
Finally, I ran the Island Violet eye pencil along the upper and lower lashlines. The pencil glided on smooth and swiftly and I blended the line with the easy built-in smudger.
To complete the eyes, I applied two coats of mascara (not included in the kit).
For the face, using a big blush brush, I swept over the entire Golden Glow cheek quad, brushing up and outward starting at the apples of the cheeks.
In keeping with the soft, sultry look, I picked a pale gloss for lips to finish the look.
(NOTE: Puppylicious Gianni Versace even got in on the action!)
