e.l.f. The New Classics || Swatch Stories #2

Color story #2

As a true makeup junkie, it is very easy to neglect makeup that I already own in favor of what’s new. This year, to get more use from my existing collection, I have decided to start a new series: Swatch Stories. Using one palette per month, I will do weekly posts of a different color combination.

I chose the e.l.f. The New Classics palette because since getting it in my e.l.f. haul, it has truly become a new favorite of mine. To me it is like the perfect blend of the ABH Soft Glam and Sultry palettes. It has everything you need for day and night, and performs well.

From Top to Bottom: Blanc, Cosmo, Charmer, Earth

For the first swatch story, I went with four colors that can take you from day to night within themselves. Below the swatches is one of the soft everyday looks that I did with these colors.

Top to bottom: Glamour, Darling, Muse, Black Cherry

For this look I blended Darling into the crease and along the lower lash line, fluffed Glamour all over the lid, softly blended Black Cherry on the outer third of the lid, blended the two lid colors using an ultra-light hand with Muse. Then to finish I smudged Muse along the top lash line and outer portion of the bottom lashes. (Not the most flattering shot, I know. I forgot to take the picture until the tail end of my day 😩)

Have you guys tried the newer e.l.f. palettes?

Juvia’s Place The Warrior | Swatch Stories #4

The final story for The Warrior palette.

As a true makeup junkie, it is very easy to neglect makeup that I already own in favor of what’s new. This year, to get more use from my existing collection, I have decided to start a new series: Swatch Stories. Using one palette per month, I will do weekly posts of a different color combination.

This month’s palette is The Warrior by Juvia’s Place. I chose this palette because it is easy to underestimate the versatility of a neutral palette.

Here is the final set of swatches for this month:

HLU4+QZcRlyisN7xMcZwCA

Top to Bottom (L-R): Amina, Moremi, Benin, Mino

Depending where you place the dark brown shade, these colors can give you tons of looks, from a dark, bronzy smokey eye to a light, neutral look for everyday (with the brown as liner). fullsizeoutput_2e5efullsizeoutput_2db7

If you had to pick four shades from this palette to make your own versatile quad, which ones would you choose? Let’s chat in the comments below!

A new set of stories begins next week!
