Makeup Monday ~ Eye shadow fun

Happy Monday! Y’all are not going to believe the last few days! My hubby and I have been busting tail to get all kinds of projects done around the house, that I simply cannot do by myself. I have been falling asleep at an insanely early hour, compared to my usual. My husband’s company called today and told him he would not be returning to Texas on Wednesday, which was the original plan. The area he was working was hit quite hard by Hurricane Harvey. Thank goodness he came home when he did! My thoughts are with everyone in Texas today, and in the coming weeks. Living in a coastal state, I know what they will be dealing with.

I have gotten several deliveries over the last few days, so I thought I would play with some eye shadows today. I wanted to step outside my comfort zone, as far as colors go. Here’s what I played with today:

Aren’t these some awesome colors?? Also, can you believe I have never used NYX or BH Cosmetics‘ eye shadows before today. Crazy, right? And considering how well these shadows performed, I can’t believe it took me this long!

I used the matte coral/orange color in the NYX palette, and the foiled orange from BH. I also ran the foiled orange under my lower lash line. The matte shadow blended out incredibly well. I had to apply the foiled shadow with a dampened brush, but that’s not at all unusual. I never thought my skin tone looked great with warm colors, but I was wrong! It actually makes my skin look more tan than it actually is, which is zero tan hahahaha I don’t love how my eyes look with liner in my waterline, but today was all about stepping outside my comfort zone.

Considering this is a first impression review, I am highly impressed!! The NYX shadow blended sooooo well!! The foiled shadow was quite easy to apply, both on the lid and under the lower lashes. Why have I waited so long to try these shadows!! I could have avoided a lot of heartache (and saved a ton of money) if I had tried these sooner. I came across BH Cosmetics from Taylor from the YouTube channel ThaTaylaa. She’s one of my favorite influencers and she talks about BH products a lot. (Keep your eyes peeled for a first impression review of another BH palette soon!)

Have y’all tried these brands before? Did you have a similiar experience? Lemme know!
