Swamp Queen Palette | Tarte x Grav3yardGirl Summer Look

finally got around to using my Swamp Queen, tarte x grav3yard girl palette over the weekend. It has been a while since I ordered it from Ulta, but I was wearing the right colors Saturday night to pair with an eye look. I also used some of my new ColourPop products, which I unbox in this video.

As you can tell from the hyperlink above,  I started a new YouTube channel and am really excited about it! Please subscribe if you like Blush and Lipstick.

Here’s the look!

I will provide a step-by-step application on how to get this eye look.

  1. Apply Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion (in original) on lid and a little above the crease.
  2. Using the Makeup Revolution Affirmation palette and a firm eyeshadow brush, I applied the matte white shade on my lid up to my brow bone.
  3. Taking a fluffy blending brush, I applied natural peaches from the Grav3yardGirl x Tarte Swamp Queen palette in my crease, blending up.
  4. Once I had the right color with natural peaches, i took a firmer blending brush and applied dogmain the crease, slightly below natural peaches, and in the outer “v” of the eye.
  5. Using the same firm eyeshadow brush I used to apply that white matte shade from the MR palette, I applied sassy bun on my lid, adding a little glam to the look.
  6. If needed, reapply natural peaches to the crease to soften the look a bit.
  7. Using a clean, fluffy blending brush, blend the crease up a little more to get rid of harsh lines.

YouTube Channel Launch & First Video

So, I took the plunge. I finally launched my YouTube channel. Now that I am 98% settled into my new house, I figured today would be a good day to film my first video. I didn’t film anything too intense, just a haul video of my latest ColourPop purchases. If you like this blog, like what I post and want to see live action tutorials, please subscribe to my channel. Here’s my first video below!

Makeup Revolution and ColourPop

Now that I have my office/vanity room set up, I’ve been able to organize everything so it’s super accessible. Over the weekend I had to venture out for lunch in San Francisco and decided to play around with my new Makeup Revolution Affirmation palette. Super affordable, the colors are quite pigmented and who doesn’t love 32 shadows for $15. The look pictured below includes the affirmation palette, as well as ColourPop’s liquid matte lipstick in the color Trap. Read below to see how I got this look. If you’ve created a similar look, please let me know! I’d love to see it.

  • Eyeshadow Primer Potion by Urban Decay (placed on lid up to brow bone)
  • Affirmation Eyeshadow palette by Makeup Revolution (see image for step-by-step placement of color)
    1. Using a clean eyeshadow brush, place color A on lid up to brow bone.
    2. Using a clean blending brush, place color B in the crease, blending in windshield wiper motions. Blend color B into the outer “V” of the eye, placing a little on the outer corner of the eyelid.
    3. Using the same eyeshadow brush you used to apply color A, apply color C on the eyelid, covering any empty spots with color C. Apply color C on inner corners.
    4. If necessary, apply color B into the crease again to deepen the color.
    5. Using a clean fluffy blending brush, blend crease out so lines aren’t as harsh.
    6. Using either a clean eyeshadow brush or an eyeliner brush, apply color D to brow bone (under eyebrow) to highlight.
