Fergie Wet n Wild Milano Collections

Here is a quick pictorial of a look I did using the Fergie Milano Collections palette.  I believe this is found at Walgreens only.  They has a palette with shades of purple but I opted for this one.  There are 10 different shades in the palette.  It also come with a double ended brush. I decided to apply the shadow with the brush that was provided.  I also used the Fergie Wet n Wild primer.

This palette retails for $8.99 at Walgreens

3 subtle mattes and the rest are shimmers

Double ended brush

The shadows have no names
I used this shade as my base.  I applied it all over my lid, as seen below.

I used this color as my highlight color on my brow bone (see below)

I used my finger to apply the gold shade pictured below on my bottom part of my lid.

Next time I will use a gold cream base that I have from Mary Kay before using this shade. I think it will pop more if I do that first.

I used this color on my crease...extreme close up below

I wanted to give it more depth so I used this on the crease as well (below)

I used this black color on the outer corner of my lids and blended very well (below)

I applied this shade on my lower lash line  (below)

I highly recommend applying the shadow before doing your foundation.  There is a lot of color fall out.

This is the final look.  I lined my eyes with Jordana eyeliner and Mary Kay mascara.   I also use Revlon foundation.

Final thoughts: Over all I think this a pretty decent palette. Like I mentioned earlier there is quite a bit of fall out. I think if I use my regular makeup brushes the colors will show more but the brush provided is not dense at all but a look is still achievable if this is the only brush you have.  I really like the matte colors and the 2 goldish colors.  The highlight color is very nice as well.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hello There

I can't believe this is my first post for 2015 and we are already 4 months in the year.  I am no longer working.  It was hard working for someone who always criticized every single thing I did.  With my husband working out of town, it was not a healthy place for me to be at especially since I was the only one responsible for my son.  I hated coming home in a bad mood and taking my frustration out on him.   I think I went through a time of sadness.  I would just lay on the couch and do nothing which made me even more sad.  It was a terrible cycle.  I finally decided to go back to the gym and I am starting to feel better.  My husband should be coming back home too which makes me very happy. We haven't seen each other in over 30 days.
I am going to try to keep blogging and finally giveaway the Real Techniques brush and sponge.  Follow me on Instagram: christinachains77
I will follow back as well.

Just curious: What's the weather like where you are at.  Here, it's cloudy and it may hail.  My grass is so long but the grass is too wet to cut it.

Please follow my blog and thanks for stopping by.
