BRIGHT Hot pink and Purple Look


FaceFront Cosmetics sent me a few of their products to try out and so far I am really impressed! I have frequently been sent samples by mineral makeup lines before. Quite a few of these companies I didn't even bother featuring on my channel - usually they were chalky, didn't stick, or the colors were just plain dull. I didn't want to promote any products that were not going to work, quite simply. So far I have tried out a few of the Paint Me Perfect Loose Mineral Eye Pigments and I am really impressed! Color payoff is excellent, and they don't even have that typical mineral eyeshadow texture - they really are more like pigments to me. The finish is great, nothing too sparkly and full of chunky glitter. They also sent me some of the Fresh Ink Pressed Eyeshadows but I have yet to really try those out. I'll do a more in-depth review soon when I have some time to take pictures. And also exciting, because I like their products - FaceFront agreed to co-sponsor for a contest I'll be doing later this year! Yay! So some of these products will be available to my subscribers. But shhh - no more details quite yet. ;)


Enjoy this fun, summery and colorful look!

  16. Thaks so much for the tutorial, the look is beautiful!!! I love FaceFront..I have Death by Rubies, among others. I'll have to get Little Gremlin though. Just from a purely photographic standpoint, I love the way the reflection looks on the closeup of your eye. Are you in front of a window?

  36. you are a gorgeous person inside and out. i watched your video on your channel, third shift, where you encourage people to not focus exclusively on looking good, but being someone who is concerned about not ONLY what's on them, but what's around them. i know you don't like being called a role model, but i think that you would make a great role model if you wanted to accept that term!
