FOTD: Wet 'n Wild Fergie Desert Festival

For my FIRST ever post, I am going to show you a new look I created, using primarily the Wet 'n Wild Fergie Desert Festival  eyeshadow palette. Here's a photo of what the palette looks like:


(I think you can see why I chose this palette from all of the others! 
Beautiful, warm colors.)

The tones of the colors are well pigmented for the most part but challenging to work with. However, I like a challenge and like to see if I can work with whatever product I have! The most pigmented colors are the orange, yellow-gold, and brown shades, with the nude shimmery shade at the top left being the worst of the bunch. I was very, very disappointed in this shade! I love to put a lighter color on the inner corner of my eyes and above the brow bone to complete my look. This shade was WAY to light for my liking. 

If you would like to take a look at additional swatches of this palette and Fergie's other palettes in this collection, I'd recommend checking out Nouveau Cheap's review.

Now... here is one look I created using this palette!
(Other products used are listed below)

Eyes: Urban Decay Original Primer Potion, Wet 'n Wild Fergie's Desert Festival eyeshadow palette, MAC Zoom Lash, Milani Liquid Eye Liquid-Like eyeliner in Aqua

Lips: Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in 01

Face: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Compact in Beige Rose, Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer

For my face, I started off my using the concealer underneath my eyes and applying the foundation using Ecotools' Bamboo Finishing Kabuki brush, which applies this foundation lightly and evenly to my whole face.

Then, I used my eye primer over both eyes. I took the yellow-gold shade in the Wet 'n Wild palette to the inner corners of my eye. After, I took the orange shade over the rest of my eyelid. After this, I used my finger to create somewhat of a v-shape with the dark chocolate shade on the bottom right of the palette. I then blended well using my fingers. I know, I know, you're all SHOCKED that I'm using my fingers, but sometimes, I just get lazy, and I enjoy using my fingers to put on makeup :)! Especially since this palette can be a challenge to work with and requires some nudging to work well. I only tend to use eyeshadow brushes to thoroughly blend at the end. Next, I applied the eyeliner on the bottom, inner rim of my eye. I have found Milani Liquid Eye Liquid eyeliner to be FABULOUS! Stays very well on my bottom, inner lashline. I also applied this from about half of my lid to the corner of my eyelid.

After this, I applied the lipstick straight from the tube.

Hope you enjoyed my first FOTD! <3

Until next time,
