Pop Beauty "Bright Up Your Life" Palette and Some Encouragement

pop beauty closedI bought this Pop Beauty Bright Up Your Life eyeshadow palette a few weeks ago for an 80’s party from Ulta. It retails for $24. I think it’s a decent palette, but it takes a bit of effort to build up the color even with a primer.

With all that said I wanted to swatch this because I’m hoping someone who’s afraid of color will see that it’s nothing to be afraid of. Most of these colors look pretty against my skin to me. Having darker skin shouldn’t keep anyone from wearing something. There’s something out there for all of us.

I think most of us can pull off a lot of things when it comes to make-up but we’re scared because we’re not used to seeing it. We stay in our comfort zones and don’t venture out because in our heads “this shade” would never look good on us.

I say take a shot. Practice your eyeshadow application and you might surprise yourself.
