Vera Mona Lotus Palette — January 31, 2017

Vera Mona Lotus Palette



Hey guys! Today I thought I’d share this Vera Mona Lotus Eyeshadow Palette with you. 

So, as you can see, it comes with a dual ended brush and a pretty large mirror. But there’s something different about this palette. It has an insert that’s made to clean your brush between colors. Kinda cool, huh?

Here are swatches for you:

And that’s all for today! I’ll see you soon!

Face of the Day  — January 28, 2017

Face of the Day 



Hey guys! I was thinking pink today. Here’s how I accomplished this look:

  • I used a Sigma e40 to apply the upper left color from the Morphe 9B palette as a transition shade
  • I used to same brush and the bottom center color from the same palette directly on top of that
  • I used a Sigma e58 to apply some NYX Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base in White to my eyelids 
  • I used a Sigma e55 to apply upper right color from that same Morphe 9B palette to my eyelids and lower lash line
  • I got an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush damp with some Mehron Mixing Liquid and used that to pat on some Violet Voss Glitter in Penelope 
  • I then threw on some Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening mascara 


  • I used a Morphe m439 brush to apply some Inglot YSM Cream Foundation in 43
  • I the concealed under my eyes with some LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Natural and blended the crap out of it all with a Beauty Blender 
  • To set that, I used a Morphe e41 to dust on some Jouer Mineral Powder in Perle Natural 
  • I bronzed a tiny bit with a Sigma f40 and Anastasia Fawn
  • I then blended all over with a Morphe m530
  • To add a bit of color, I added some Jouer Powder Blush in Peony with a Sigma f15
  • I then once again blended with a Real Techniques Multi Tasking Brush 
  • I used an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 to fill in and shape my brows with some NYX Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate 
  • To highlight my brow bones, I used an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush and a bit of NYX Cosmetics Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Lace 
  • For the glow, I used a Morphe m310 to dust on some Dose of Colors Baked Highlighter in Peach Glow 
  • I threw on some Ardell Wispies with some Duo Eyelash Adhesive 
  • To finish off the look, I added a bit of NARS Lipstick in Mayflower

And that’s all! See you soon!
