Creating Fantasy Palettes

Creating Fantasy Palettes

If I had to pick a favorite makeup item, then you know it would be eyeshadow. Up to 2019, I was mainly focusing on buying stand alone palettes. But last year I wanted to try more indie brands and a lot of their shadow is only available as single pans. So I became more focused on my single shadow collection. Still, I struggle to wear these and make combinations. I mostly reach for one or two shades at a time, so I high time to try and make a change. Let’s see if I can draw some inspiration for using my singe shadow collection to build some custom palettes with curated color stories.

JCAT Loose Pigment Mirror on the Wall

JCAT Loose Pigment Mirror on the Wall

Time for something a little different on the blog. I try out a lot of eyeshadow, but mostly those are pressed shadows in premade palette form. What I review less is single shadows, let alone loose pigments! I only own a handful of loose pigment shadows and for good reason: they are messy to use and come with so much product that you will never use it up. In short, there never is any reason for me to invest the money into this kind of product. However, when I was in NYC last October, I wanted to track down JCAT Beauty as it was a brand I hadn’t tried yet. Their one product that stood out to me was their Vanity Goddess Chromatic Pigment in Mirror on the Wall.

If you saw Thursday’s video about neutral palettes, you will have seen me feature the Dose of Colors 5 pan monochromatic palettes as some of my favorite picks for a neutral matte palette. These palettes feature small, curated, monochromatic, matte color stories that are cleverly laid out and that is why they are so easy to use. So easy in fact, that I have been using these two palettes for nearly 2 years now without ever featuring them on the blog. High time to make a change! Meet Marvellous Mauves and Blushing Berries.

My Booktube Channel

Apart from makeup I love books and so I decided to start 2020 with a new Youtube channel. Yes a booktube channel. Because I felt it would be better to split up my content into different platforms. By now I have posted 5 videos on the channel and I felt I could share them with you on here. What I will do from now on, is once a month I will post one of these overview posts of what went up on my Booktube channel. If you’d rather subscribe and stay up to date of my book videos that way, my channel is called Floating in Books.
