Look of the day: Red & White

Today, I was supposed to have a shoot with some friends, just for fun and for our portfolios!

However last-minute things fell through so I stayed home, and played with some makeup. When I first started doing makeup I bought a 120 palette thinking it was the greatest thing alive, I quickly found that it fell short when it compared to professional brands but I still have it for personal use.

One of the  things I find severely annoying about my 120 palette is the fact that the shadows are so soft the dang things keep breaking.  I wont touch it for 6 months and somehow 3 of the shadows will be shattered.  I think they have tiny time bombs in them.

You can really tell the shadows are sub par just by looking at them, Maybe I will redo this look with my sugar pill burning heart palette when I get it just so you all can see the comparison!

Anyway here is just a quick eye look I did, while looking for something to do.

I only used the 120 palette, + a black ben nye cream + a lip tar in feathered for a white base.

Quick and easy!

p.s.  excuse the brows I really need to go get them done 😉

Yaby Palette Review: Dramatically Neutral Palette

Finally the day has come!  That day I promised you months ago, and the day some of you have waited for through my inconsistent blogging and less interesting topics.  The review I have been waiting for as well.

I FINALLY got my Yaby Pearl Paints Palette and my Yaby Dramatically Neutral Palette.  I actually got them a few weeks ago but wanted to use them and make sure I could give a thorough, well thought out review.  I guess I was also a little too excited and couldnt get my thoughts together at first.

In the first lets talk about the dramatically neutral palette.  No matter how many times I have been told yaby is designed to lighten your kit and the shadow palettes are small etc etc,Nothing prepared me for how small.The actual palette  is  a little less then half the size of my 120 palette, the eyeshadows are smaller then a dime. The palette case is  clean and white and has a large mirror finished mixing palette on the back, its meant for mixing first and foremost not for looking in while touching up which is why it is a little warped.

After getting over this initial shock, I began to experiment and play.  I purchased (or rather asked my wonderful bf to purchase for my birthday) the dramatically neutral palette chiefly for the fact, as much fun as bright colors are neutral colors are your staple and you will use them for plenty more then half the work you do.  Remember when I say neutral I definitely don’t mean boring, this yaby palette is packed with gorgeous browns, sparkling bronzes, and some bright shimmering silvers and blues.  The only disappointment for me was the purples, which are quite dark, and very matte.

Now the best part. The shadows are pigmented! Really pigmented, and they show true to color on camera, everything from my dinky digital camera to big professional cameras with lights and all that good studio stuff. I used them on a recent photoshoot for an actresses head shots and they sure looked amazing.  I will post those pictures when I get them so you can see for yourself.

All in all I think it was a worthy buy, if i get the something brights I am pretty sure I would never have to buy another eyeshadow again because with all three yaby palettes I would be covered.  The little buttons of shadow are small, but so pigmented and wonderful I need to use less, plus they arent breaking my back with extra weight in my kit.

I would buy again.

Now for what the public wants:

Swatches and photos

Ps. I am only using the 120 palette for measurement I AM NOT saying the 120 palette and the yaby palette are any way alike or that the 120 palette is anywhere near the quality of the yaby palette.
