Matte And Shimmer Makeup Balance

Products Used:

L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in "bronzed taupe" | Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil in "brunette" | Physicians Formula Eye Booster Eyeliner in "black" (one of my fave liquid liners!) | Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in "brash blue" | L'Oreal Voluminous False Fibers Lash Mascara | Mary Kay "shy blush" (seen here) |  Stila Stay All Day Foundation in "light" | | Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in "elusive." 

I am a big fan of mixing up my matte and shimmer makeup products.  I don't like a face full of shimmery things or a completely matte face - it feels too flat and uniform, I'm all about balance.  When I start doing my makeup, there's usually one specific product I'm feeling at the moment and start from there. Whether it be I'm in the mood for matte purple eye shadow or super glossy lips, I take cues from what I initially want to work with and balance out the finishes from there.  

With this look it all started with my brand new Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm and worked from there.  By the way, I LOVE this lip crayon.  It's not so matte that it dries your lips out or looks crusty, it's just the perfect matte finish and feels like velvet, seriously.  This rosy shade "elusive," is super easy to wear and now I want to try their more bold colors!  So since I knew I was working matte lips in a very soft color, I decided a shimmery eyelid on top was in order along with a punch of bold color on my lower lash line of blue to spice things up!  I am pretty fond of how it turned out.
