I love using these as a base for my eyeshadow instead of the plain nude base. I love doing a look where I can matching the color of the color tattoo to the eyeshadow on top to really amplify the color. I use the bold gold the most and find that all of these shadows makes my eyeshadow last all day long with no smudges or discoloration. These act great as a base or a stand alone color for a quick pop to your eyes.
I have always been impressed with the quality of the NYX brand considering that it would be labeled a "drugstore product". I have owned countless higher end shadows but somehow I always end up doing down the NYX aisle first over any other product. Many would compare NYX to MAC seeing as how they make similar products but NYX sells for 1/3 the price. Instead of the usual $20 mac single shadow you can purchase one of these for around $4.00. These single shadows are super pigmented and look amazing on also they come in a wide range of colors for plenty of options.
Start by prepping the lashes by adding a base to them in order to make the cobalt blue stand out even more
I used NYX jumbo stick in milk and just ran it along my lashes
Next I put on the blue mascara this one is in inky six by Butter
Add as many coats as you need
This is optional but you could put on eyeliner that matches the shade of blue to give your eyes that extra pop.
I used NYX liquid liner in extreme blue

To compliment the purple and pink sequence stripes you can always add a dress underneath in the same color such as the one pictured above.
These Chanel sandals are the perfect shoe to wear with this look. Because of the heel they can easily be worn with this look in the day or the night.
Next to NYX Physicians Formula has to be the best drug store makeup on the market. I only use Physicians Formula gel liners so when they released this palette I was super excited to try it. In general I am never attracted to palettes that contain just basic shades (I already have my basic nudes and blacks cover) so I always look for colors that instantly catch my eye. This palette was no different. With its bright colors and interesting packaging I knew that I has to buy this. Although I visually love the colors I have to say that the pigments are a little lacking. Without a primer you can barely see the colors and some of the purple shades are no different then the others. However, when you combine the light purple, pink, dark purple, and light chartreuse shade together and blend them out it creates a very playful and visually interesting eye, you just need to apply a great primer first.
Although this palette does not contain names for the shades it does contain these looks on the packaging. I used Milk by NYX as the primer on all of the shadows
This palette is my first and only palette by Sugar Baby and I absolutely love it. The pigments are fantastic alone but stand out even more with a primer. This is defiantly not a palette for daytime but would work fantastic at night or at a party. I love that they included the glitter liner in the same turquoise color as the shadow so you can amp up your eyes 100 times by adding this on.
