FOTD: Ode to Vanity

21 May

Oh, how I love my WetNWild “Vanity” eyeshadow palette!!!

IDK how I ever lived without it.  I’ve used it almost everyday since I made it mine! Okay, okay enough blubberin’… on to THE MAKEUP! For this FOTD I decided to keep my it pretty simple because I was wearing a lot of bright colors… that & we were running late for worship service that day *church finger* 😉 Anyway, if you are interested in color exploration, but wanna take baby steps, this look is a great way to get it started: a neutral eye with a bold waterline.


PRIMER:Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Matte e/s primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk (lower lid) & Purple (crease)

SHADOW: On lower lid & browbone I used camel colored e/s from WetNWild Vanity palette (matte finish). I drew a line on my crease using the NYX pencil in Purple & put chocolate-brown from the CoverGirl Coffee Shop e/s palette on top of that line using a crease brush. I added matte white e/s to highlight my tearducts & matte black e/s to darken the outer v (both Shany).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline with WetnWild cream eyeliner in black.

LIPS: Carmex + Estee Lauder lip gloss in Rose

CHEEKS: WetNWild Blush in “Heather Silk” (on the apples of my cheeks)

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

Behold the awesomeness of the Vanity palette!!!


Since I mention this palette daily, I figured I should at least show it to you, right?! Let’s discuss…  the top 2 colors are excellent highlighters (i.e. tearduct & browbone), one is matte off white, one is a frosty champagne. The 2 on the middle row are good all-over-your-lid colors; matte camel (the one I use errday!) & a metallic yellow gold. *LOVES THIS*  The bottom row features a matte coffee bean brown & a metallic chocolate-brown, both are great for contouring & shading the outer v. Overall the Vanity palette is a great find, with neutral tones that will compliment any complexion & you can’t beat the price ($5)! You can get WetNWild products @ Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid & Winn-Dixie… I live in central Alabama, so your local retailers may differ.

    Ugh! You are making me want to buy this so badly! I already have the Vanity and Lust palettes, which are great! But, I so want this now…
