Sunset Eyes ft. Sleek Sunset Palette & Sugarpill Darling

15 Jul

Hello, all! Today I felt like giving my new Sleek Sunset palette a workout. You could recreate this look using only the Sunset palette, but I added Sugarpill’s Darling and Love+ because one cannot do bright makeup without using Sugarpill. It’s the law.

Skills, Olive, skills. I’d like to think I’ve matured since then, both in makeup and in life šŸ™‚ And in eyebrows, jeez louise!sunset collageĀ  Wearing bright makeup again felt so freeing. Work has been going kinda awfully and I can’t even wear rainbow makeup to cheer me up šŸ˜¦ Ho hum, first world problems.Ā sunset collage 3 sunset collage 4

My inspiration for this look was my new elephant shirt. Cue awkward selfies.

    Eyebrow game on POINT. Seriously – could you do a tutorial or something? That’s part of the reason I hate taking makeup pictures; my eyebrows are hideous. Also: LOVE this look! It’s so smooth and it’s all blended perfectly šŸ˜€

    Sorry work isn’t going well šŸ˜¦ I hope it gets better for you!

      Oh my gosh, I’d love to! I struggled with them for so long and they still don’t look identical (don’t look too hard :)). But thank you so much, that really perked me up. Funny story but I’m in some small town in Minnesota on a bike trip and I haven’t looked in the mirror or put on makeup for 3 days, it’s been freeing šŸ™‚
