Makeup Tutorial | Floral Values

When I received this Wet n Wild palette, Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Illuminator and a few Revlon Colorbursts in this month's Rite Aid Network, I knew there was about to be a makeup tutorial going down. The colors are SO fun for spring time! Lord knows New England needs a hint that it's spring time. I'm talkin' to you, random snow and sleet last Wednesday morning. You are so on my list.

The Headliners: Wet N Wild Floral Values Palette, Revlon PhotoReady SkinLights in Pink Light and Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Whimsical and Matte Balm in Lovesick.

Also Used: Foundation - L'Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Foundation in Light Ivory | Concealer - MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter in Radiant Rose | Blush - MAC Melba | Bronzer - NARS Laguna | Eyelid Primer - NYX Eye Pencil in Milk | Gel Liner - Maybelline (??) 

Eyes: I highly recommend using a white base with the Wet N Wild Floral Values Palette. On the lid, we started with the "Base" color. I popped the "Definer" shade into the crease and blended. I patted the "Eyelid" shade onto my lid. I decided to switch it up and used the "Crease" shade in my outter v. Lastly, I took the "Browbone" shade, wet it and applied it to the inner corner of my eyes. Cheeks: I used the Revlon PhotoReady SkinLights in Pink Light to highlight. I also used this down my nose and in my cupid's bow. Lips: First, I applied Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Lovesick and decided it needed a little more va-va-voom so I used Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Whimsical over it. I love the combo!



Unfortunately, most of the shades in the Wet N Wild Floral Values palette were incredibly sheer (not to mention chalky) so using white will give them a nice neutral base to pop off of. I also recommend patting, not spreading the shades on. The only redeeming shade was the "Base" shade which blended and applied perfectly. The Revlon PhotoReady SkinLights Illuminator was absolutely amazing! I love the subtle highlight it gave! Lastly, you all know this by now but I'm coo-coo over these Revlon Colorburst balms so naturally, I loved everything about them!

Would you rock pink/purple eyes? How much effort do you put into a product before you give up on it?

* These products were in my Rite Aid Network box. The box is sent to me from the company. My opinions are always 100% my own.

  17. I use a pink shade for my eyes a lot, as far as trying out something new it had better impress me quickly or it gets relegated to my clutter drawer.

  21. The Wet 'n Wild palettes used to be the most amazing ever, but they've been going downhill. I rarely hear raves about them anymore. If it's a color I really love, I might work at it a little, but with so many other options out there -and even a lot of great drugstore brands - I'm more likely to return or toss something that is more trouble than it's worth. I love the lippies you got, though! sweet!
