Happy Sunday (Bah, Monday is a few short hours away)! I'm sharing my first post today for Antipodean Beauties! In case you aren't familiar with it, Antipodean Beauties was created by Omega from Fashion Adjacent, with the idea of bringing together all participating Australian and New Zealand bloggers in a weekly challenge. The theme changes every week so participants are free to join in whenever they can. I won't be giving up on Aqeela's weekly makeup challenge, I'll just participate in both when time (and energy) permits!
This week's theme is glitter, so here is what I came up with.
It was a bit challenging as I don't really have many glitter products (aside from nail polishes, but I wanted to come up with a makeup look to really challenge myself to step outside the box), but then I remembered an untouched 'lol' Starry Night eye palette I had in my makeup drawer. 'lol' stands for 'lots of love' and is a budget brand carried by Kmart.
Keep reading after the jump!
I had a bit of trouble with this because the 'lol' palette has a cream formula and basically caused major creasing every time I blinked! The palette also didn't have as much glitter in it as I'd have liked; the look was a bit more sparkly in real life but the flash washed it out somewhat.
Would I buy another 'lol' palette? Probably not; to be honest, I wasn't overly impressed with the quality. Doing this one look used up most of the pans from the three shades I chose (second and third shades - silver and black from the top row, and the first shade - white glitter from the bottom row).
