I really miss doing makeup looks and definitely need to come up with a better way of doing them with my work schedule. I am not a morning person, but I really should do them for work since I normally have to get semi-dolled up anyway. When it comes to reviewing eyeshadow palettes, I love incorporating them into a whole makeup look mainly because I find it fun and also because I like to show how the shades can be paired off with the right cheek and lip shades. Whenever I wear a ?coloured? eyeshadow, it always feels like a big deal. If I?m not wearing neutrals, I feel like the whole world is staring at me. Green shadows like those in Dior?s new Diorshow 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Khaki Design* ($69.00 CDN) are sort of neutral for me. Maybe it?s because green is still a shade of ?nature?', but I often feel like I need to be wearing the right outfit colours for green to work. Then again, I wore coral in the shots below so what do I know"
Like my previous review of the Nude Pink Design Palette (review), these palettes have a very clear formula of how to use each shade. Being a little scared of my first time with this green palette, I followed the ?colour by number? steps and it turned out alright! Excuse the messy curly hair. I can never brush it once I?ve curled it because I will just shed so much. Think of this look as ?Jungle Jayne?. I may as well have been wearing leopard print.
