Ohhhh, it’s a good one this month
After eleven months I have finally given in Beauty Marked. Swoon. It is a blackened red, as opposed to burgundy which has more brown tones and it is full of red sparkle.
Perfect for brightening up dark mornings and dark evenings. It is not the softest texture in my palette (the matt shades are much softer) but it is definitely the most dramatic.
So, pay off on the skin. When you dip your finger in it, it looks gorgeous. On the skin, the black is not very intense but the red sparkles are very present. I have been having fun playing with the colour and a base colour underneath is definitely the way to go.
If you are going ot use a gel liner as a base, apply the shadow quickly, before it dries completely. A MAC paint pot is also a good option and if you are going to use a pencil base, a thin layer of primer will help longevity.
If you would like to see how I wear it, head over to my Instagram (patentpurplelife). If you have any suggestions for the last two spots in my palette, please get in touch and let me know.
