I managed to get up 10 minutes earlier than usual this morning (unbelievable!) so I quickly snapped a few pictures of my makeup before I left home for work. The eyeshadow palette I used is my beloved Lunasol Chocolate Cosmos by Kanebo. Lunasol is well known for neutral eyeshadow palettes, and this one has been one of their top sellers for years! It can look bland or dupable, but the beauty of this palette is that all of the shades are so wearable and flattering and are designed to enhance the natural beauty of your eyes and complement the rest of your makeup.
Shades description (clockwise from top left)
a soft shimmery cool sandy brown
a soft shimmery peachy brown
rich chocolate brown with silver glitters
a pearly beige white with an iridescence – the texture of this shadow is different to the rest – it has a spongy creamy texture that can be used as a base as well as being excellent for highlighting the inner corner of the eyes.
I love how the iridescence of the pearly white shade shows up in this picture.
Swatches: All of these shadows are smooth and are easy to blend.
Love the finish of these shadows – they are neither too matte which can look too flat nor too shimmery. They give a satin shimmery effect with a subtle sparkle that bring my morning lifeless eyes back to life.
Some pictures of my FOTD this morning. Just a very soft and fresh makeup look I normally wear to work everyday.
