Yellow, Orange and Purple Makeup look with Sobe Botanicals

With this look I tried something different. I watched a video a long time ago about how some people use concealer as an eyeshadow base instead of getting an actual base. I wanted to see if a concealer would work the same so I applied an anti-crease primer, then applied concealer cream to my lids and blended with my ring finger. I applied the shadows and at first I was thinking it seemed to be the same. But once I started's not as good. The shadows lost their shimmer and turned out much more dull and looked matte to me. So I would not recommend using concealer as an eyeshadow base!

Regardless, I still like how this turned out. :-)

I made zee necklace. It says:

"That is not dead
Which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons
Even death may die.
 H. P. Lovecraft"
