Spring is in full swing and I am definitely here for it. I am all about the bright, bold and colorful and this look is no exception. With the focus on the eyes, Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows show their beauty and blendability with ease. These are my favorite shadows to work with. They lack nothing and leave me with a sense of satisfaction when used in any look.
I also used my new Armani Luminous Silk powder and it's not bad. I do like that you actually pick up product on the brush you can see it applied to the skin. It is natural and the finish is beautiful. It is pigmented so those who need a little extra coverage over their foundation will like this. However, it is delicate and you can loosen up the powder easily if you're not careful which makes me curious as to how much product you will use each time. Because you can pick up quite a bit, I can see you using this product up easily. That may be a plus or minus in your book. It doesn't bother me as much simply because I don't use one particular powder exclusively. I have yet to try this with its liquid foundation partner but plan to do so in the near future. So far, I don't have anything truly problematic to comment on thus far. So yay!
