Here is my first look using Hi-Fi cosmetics. Out of the 3 colors I used on this look, only 1 was one that I chose for myself (100 proof, this was a half off shadow as its sadly being discontinued). The other 2 were free samples included with the order. I love free samples because they're free (LOL) and because they're like a little surprise of colors you might not have chosen for yourself, but often end up loving. This is definitely the case with these beautiful colors. I really like the way this came out, these colors are gorgeous and the texture is amazing.
I'm not liking my foundation in these pics (revlon photo ready), think I'm going back to my old routine of MAC MSF natural. The photo ready looks better IRL, really bad in pics... go figure.
Color descriptions are taken from HiFi's etsy store, with the exception of ballad.
Aromaleigh eyeshadow primer
HiFi Ballad on inner corners (about 1/3)- (I couldn't find this color in their etsy store but I'd describe it as the palest green with beautiful shimmer)
HiFi 100 proof middle of lid, blended into Ballad, almost to edge of eye- (100 PROOF is a bright neon green that is fabulous!!! )
HiFi Boom Shaka Laka applied to edge of eye, V and into crease.. and along lower lashline (BOOM SHAKA LAKA is a vivid gold-green with lots of emerald glitter! Unique and beautiful!!!)
NYX black, the tiniest amount, to deepen V and lower lashline (matte black)... then buffed some more of the Boom Shaka Laka on top of it to blend it out
I used a clinique off white color on my brow bone... not sure of the name.
Ben Nye cake liner
I only used 1 brush today for the majority of the application- my Sonia Kashuk small shader brush. I did a little bit of blending at the upper edge of the greens with my MAC 224.
Cheeks are Aromaleigh Nectar
Lips are Revlon Colorstay Ultimate in Prized Peach- this stayed on allllll day
I rarely do head on straight shots, 'cause I normally get the big eye little eye thing from the flash... and it makes my nose look bigger lol.
The next color I want to try out is Arsonist, its the 2nd form the left on the bottom row pictured below. Any ideas on what to pair it with? I'm thinking yellowy gold on inner corner and some matte brown in outer V.
Thanks for looking!!
