Bella Sugar duochrome eye look

Hello ladies,

I have another look for you with eye shadows from Bella Sugar Cosmetics. It features my favorite new shadow of the moment: Chocolate Covered Blueberries.

The shimmer in low light.
In the swatches below, the first line shows the color over bare skin. The second line is the shadow over Reviva Labs Makeup Primer.
Chocolate Covered Blueberries. Brown with pale blue/green shimmer. In some lights, the shimmer reflects mint green. In others, an icy blue.

Coltt: a navy blue shimmer that can be worn as eyeliner. Coltt also makes a striking contour shade .

Morning Glory from the Wildflowers Collection: a sky blue.
Gaillardia from the Wildflowers Collection: pink with gold sparkle.

Before applying the shadows, I started with a light covering of Reviva Labs Makeup Primer as a base. Morning Glory was brushed across the lid with Chocolate Covered Blueberries in the contour, spreading out to form the cat's eye shape. I blended the two colors together beneath the eye. I would caution against using Chocolate Covered Blueberries as eyeliner on its own. The color shifts so much, you would visually lose the fluidity of the line. Otherwise, this shadow is perfection. I would love to see more shades like this added to their regular catalog.

Over the brow bone, I am wearing a blend of Gaillardia and Bella Sugar. I am really impressed by how well this company makes pinks. The pinks I have tried have a lot of life. They remind me of the warm pink tones present in a beach sunset.

I am really enjoying the shadows I have from Bella Sugar Cosmetics. I have some other eye looks planned for you in the coming weeks, including a summery blend of orange, copper, peach and gold.
