Face of the Day: Creamy Neutrals

I just recently purchased Samoa Silk and I am REALLY loving how soft or how strong it can be. This combo is a prime example of a softer way to wear it for your everyday looks. :)

    This looks so pretty on you! It’s amazing how people can look so different with using the same shade! I would look terrible in S.S. , but you and many others look beautiful with it. It’s wonderful though that we are all different in that way. If we were the same it would be boring. Although, I do wish I had your blending skills! I’ll get there. :)

      Thanks, Karah! :)
      Yes, you will get there! When I first started the blog, not only were the pictures AWFUL but my application techniques were equally as bad. Took some time and practice (and finding the right brushes!), but eventually ya get it! Keep going, gal! :)

    Hi Zabrena,

    I am a new member and I am completely addicted to your website. I absolutely love it! I have very similar coloring and features as you do so I feel like the colors you choose will look similar on me…if only I could apply them as well as you do…but I am improving. I use Mac 217 and Mac 239 brushes for all my eyeshadow application…is there another that is a must for my collection? I seem to have issues getting a good shape above my crease…or maybe I am not blending well enough? I would like the shades to appear more subtle. Any tips, videos, tutorials,or advice is much appreciated.
