Not all makeup artists have an excessive makeup collection, but they do have more than your average. Mine has grown and grown over the years, more so since creating tutorials on YouTube.
Thanks to many generous brands I’ve been able to sample products before their release and share my thoughts and opinions with you guys! That has led to my ever-growing repertoire of makeup!
Since I filmed my room tour I have had many requests to film a makeup collection, so here is part one of what is hiding in my makeup drawers. Part two will be up tomorrow, featuring my SFX kit and my pro makeup kit that I take out on jobs with me.
Worth The Hype: Stila
Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows
When Stila launched their Magnificent Metals Eyeshadows back
in 2013 they were met with mixed reviews, some people hated them, others
thought they were OK whilst others swore by their beautiful foiled effect. Four
years later, Stila went back to the market with their Glitter & Glow Liquid
Eyeshadows, a gorgeous glitter suspended through a liquid and they were met with
an incredible response. I was excited, but also apprehensive at first as I’ve
always found glitter on the eyes to be trouble-sum despite its beauty… However, with these beauties my
concerns were gone quicker than you could say glitter, from the moment that I
applied just one swipe to my eyelids. The eyeshadow is formulated as a creamy
liquid, and each shade starts off with great pigment, followed by a matching
glitter which corresponds beautifully to each shade, creating a fantastic product. Unlike
loose glitter, these are fallout free, and stay where you put them instead of
moving all over the place, and there is no need to use an adhesive of any kind.
The glitter is the perfect size and shape, large enough to make an impact but
small enough that it feels comfortable on the eyelids. Once applied you have a few minutes of play-time, meaning you can either sheer out
the shadow and glitter for a beautiful subtle effect or build it up and layer
it for more intensity. Shortly after the shadow and glitter dry down to a stay-put,
long-lasting finish that withstands creasing, smudging and fading for hours on
end. All in all, I think these shadows are fantastic for anyone wanting to add some glitter and glam to their makeup, regardless of their skill level.
