As anyone reading this blog can attest, I am a bonafide makeup junkie.
I spend a ton of time playing with makeup and reading about it and yeah, buying it, so I definitely know my way around an eye shadow palette or a tube of lipstick.
But just because I'm a makeup enthusiast (sounds better than fanatic, doesn't it?), that doesn't mean that I know everything about the topic.
In fact, there are plenty of things that I'm kind of clueless about when it comes to makeup.
So I thought it might be fun -- and helpful -- to do a series of posts where I pose some of my makeup questions to you guys and see if you can offer up any tips, tricks, or suggestions.
(And if you have a makeup topic that you're struggling with, feel free to leave a comment or email me with it and I would be happy to use it for one of these posts -- because if I can't help you, I'm sure someone else reading this blog can.)
My first dilemma is hot pink or magenta eye shadow.
I have several palettes that include bright pink shades, which are gorgeous and I'm totally drawn to.
|Some of the hot pink/magenta shades in question -- Sigma Redberry Rose, Too Faced Totally Fetch, Sephora Little Mermaid Sha-la-la, Urban Decay Junkshow|
The problem is that I have no idea how to use them in a way that's wearable with my skin tone.
I'm super pale so they're going to make a seriously bold statement on me, and I really don't want to wind up looking sick.
So... what's your favorite way to wear hot pink eye shadow without it making your eyes look totally bloodshot and infected?
