The holiday season means holiday parties, which, in turn, usually means holiday make-up looks. For those of us who are not blessed with flawless, naturally contoured and highlighted skin, we turn to our make-up bags. I like to refer to November/December issues of fashion magazines for make-up inspiration. Most editorials and make-up advertisements have amazing
hard to recreate smokey eye looks. I especially love the YSL campaigns, I mean really can't we all rock red lips with blue eyes? Maybe I'm the
only one who ends up with raccoon chic rather than the sultry doe-eyed look I try to
emulate -we'll just blame the lighting.
Anyways, this brings me to my main point. As you can probably tell by now that I'm a huge fan of eye make-up. I consider eye shadows and eye liners the best accessory to accent a look, but finding the right ones are the hard part. However, I think I've finally found the perfect eyeshadows. I recently came across Le Métier de Beauté, a luxury make-up brand, at Neiman Marcus and immediately fell in love with their eye-shadow collection.
I ended up getting the 'Limited Edition Kaleidoscope Eye Kit, Carnaby Street' inspired by 1960's London. The color palette really stands out to me as it contains very unique colors that range from a dusky pink to a midnight navy. I especially love the packaging! The compact consists of the four stacked eye with a mirror on top. The best part is that these shadows go on smooth (barely any fall out), are highly pigmented, and are very blendable -which is an absolute must to create the smokey effect. I also found that I could create a few different shades by blending the lighter colors with a hint of the dark shades. I can definitely say that this palette is my new best friend this season.
