Trish McEvoy, Clinique, MAC, and Christian Dior are some of the many makeup brands to choose from when purchasing makeup. My makeup bag contains more than just one brand, so I find myself running to different stores for different products, like Bloomingdales and Sephora. Makeup is not cheap, it’s somewhat of an investment. If I’m on a makeup run for lets say eyeshadow, I need a shadow that is colorful, striking, easy, and inexpensive because the color I want usually only pertains to a few outfits for certain occasions.
Don’t just buy a shadow for one outfit, but buy for all, and one at a reasonable price. You’re not always going to find designer-brand makeup like Chanel that is inexpensive, so try store-brand names like Sephora. I used to think that wearing store-brand makeup was like taking generic medicine from a pharmacy. I still feel that way about store-brand medicine, but not about store-brand makeup.
Sephora has their own line of fabulous makeup that is just as cool and chic as the more expensive brands out there, but at a better price. What I love most in the Sephora collection are the Sephora eyeshadows, a bakedmoon shadow, in particular. Sephora recently came out with a “Meteor Shower Bakedmoon Shadow” trio that is perfect in color and in price. The trio provides you with three colorful and glamorous shades: rich earthy brown shimmer, bronzer shimmer, and deep turquoise shimmer. The shades blend easily to create a powerful smokey eye with a sparkly finish that is perfect for the day and going into the night.
If you want a more intense look, wet your eyeshadow brush when applying the colors for a bold effect. Lastly, the darkest shade can be used as an eyeliner, so don’t worry about having to use your eye pencil. I love the shades in this trio, and they will look great with anything from jeans and a cute blouse to a striking cocktail dress at night. An outfit in the blue and bronze tones will look great with the eyeshadow shades. The trio is available on Sephora.com for $17 – check it out.
