120 palette tropical


Its gray and gloomy today so I decided to go for some crazy brights for my eyes.  I barely use my 120 palette.  The colors are all pretty and well pigmented, but they are quite soft and messy.  With a sticky base, these shadows are pretty great.  Too bad the palette has a weird, old lady, perfumey smell to it. 

I used a new liner brush today and I still have to get used to it... liner looks a bit wonky.

MAC Strobe Cream
L'oreal Studio Secrets Perfecting primer, dotted onto nose and under eyes (this helps hide my pore-tasticness)
MAC Moisture Tint Tinted Moisturizer- Light
MAC Studio Fix powder- C2 dusted very lightly to set
NYX Pinky blush
NYX Taupe blush to contour

Aromaleigh eye primer- light
120 palette white gold, yellow, orange, blend of 2 pinks and black for lower lashline
Ben Nye Toast on brow
Ben Nye Black cake liner
Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion- Very Black

Lips are Barry M Pinky Peach lippie with NYX LaLa gloss


  1. thanks Charlie!! I need to dip into this palette more :)

  2. I love the way you faded the colors into each other and blended out the edges in the crease :)

  3. Gorgeous! And I hear you on the old lady perfume - yuck.

  4. I was tempted to try the 120 palette but decided I have too much makeup for that...old lady perfume smell? Gross!
    Anyway! The look is so pretty! I like how you blended them. It's either a sunset or mango look to me. :-D

  5. You have such lovely cheekbones :)
    Love the gradient effect, and the cat liner is too cute with it.

  6. @Phyrra- thanks! these colors blend surprisingly well though you have to be really easy with them as they fall out like crazy

    @Lillian- thanks sweets!

    @Kathy- thanks, yeah just a weird scent that reminds me of my grandma's ancient makeup lol

    @Blix- yeah, I so didn't need this palette but its fun to play with (besides the stink) thanks!!

    @Cydonian- thank you!! The contour definitely helps them stand out ;)

  7. This is so pretty! I really want that palette, all these looks are so inspiring and I'd love to try them out!

  8. Thr colors look amazing together! Looks lovely on you!

  9. It looks like a sunset ^___^ very pretty

  10. Ooo so bright and cheery. Gorgeous!

  11. Joy- thanks so much :)

    SS- thanks!! a bit of red and it would have resembled your fire look

    Style- thanks sweets!

    Zombie- yes, a definite change for me :)

  12. That is a really cool way to use yellow! I personally.. dislike the color because yellow accessories and such clash with me. I think it's my paleness-ness XD Keep these tutorials coming!!! :D
