Do you ever forget how much you love a particular makeup product?
Today I was using Wet n Wild's Comfort Zone palette as I was getting ready for Beauty Broadcast Live, and I feel like I fell in love with it all over again. I was saying on the live show that I normally think of this as a green palette and forget that the other half is filled with equally gorgeous neutral shades. I used my go-to shadow application format with this look. I'll share the details in a minute- first let's talk about what's on the face!
-Too Faced Air Buffed BB Creme (Cream Glow) - dislike! Claims to be "complete coverage"... it's not.
-Revlon Colorstay Concealer (Light)
-Bare Minerals Well Rested (to set concealer & brighten undereyes)
-Makeup For Ever Pro Finish Powder (128 Neutral Sand)
-Essence Sun Club Matte Bronzer (Sunny)
-The Balm Instain Blush (Houndstooth) -review is coming!
-Sigma Eyeshadow Base (Persuade)
-Wet n Wild Color Icon Palette (Comfort Zone)
-Milani Ultrafine Liquid Liner (Black Vinyl) - upper lashline
-Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil (Zero) - waterline
-L'oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara - upper lashes
-Maybelline Lash Discovery Mascara - lower lashes
-Salon Perfect Demi Wispies False Eyelashes - not pictured
-Anastasia Beauty Express for Brows & Eyes (Brunette) - not pictured
How I got the look...
-Prime the eyes with Sigma eyeshadow base
(all shadows I'm referring to in the Wet n Wild palette are from the left side)
-Apply the Browbone shade under the brow and around inner corner
-Apply Eyelid shade all over the lid
-Apply the dark brown Definer shade on the outer corner of the eye, lightly in the crease, and smudge it on the lower lashline
-Apply the medium brown Crease shade just above the crease to soften the look and add some warmth
-Extend liquid liner just past the lashline
-Apply black pencil to waterline

-Too Faced La Creme Lipstick (Nude Beach)
-NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss (Crystal Soda)
Hope you enjoyed the look! This is definitely my go-to shadow format, and I enjoy it because of the way it frames my eye and give it a bit of a lift. All of these shades have some shimmer, and normally I might try to throw a deep matte shade in the crease, but I actually think all of these colors blend really well without looking "muddy". The Wet n Wild shadows are so rich and soft, and I love how it only takes a little bit to get the look you're after. The lashes are definitely key also. I love the thickness that the Demi Wispies give!
