Green Winged Eyeshadow with Subtle Graphic Liner

I don't do green eye makeup very often just because I don't really like it much on myself, but let me tell you how much I LOVED this look. Not sure what it was, but the golden greens, pop of turquoise liner, the thick winged look, and the subtle gold graphic liner and cut of my favorite looks in a while.

Juvia's Place Mini Palettes - Swatches + FOTDs

Psst...if you're looking for affordable, crazy pigmented eyeshadows and you haven't tried Juvia's Place, you really should. The brand is inspired by the vibrancy of Africa and their eyeshadows reflect that.

About Juvia's Place:
Africa is not only the birthplace of humanity, it’s the birthplace of all beauty. Juvia’s Place was created to celebrate the rebels, rulers and queens of the African kingdoms of long ago, who emulated and honored beauty through their soulful and innovative techniques that the top beauty gurus still use today. Inspired by the queens before us, Juvia’s Place offers the richest, most vibrantly-pigmented essentials for the eyes, face and lips to take you from the office, to the Caribbean islands, and everywhere in between!

I have quite a few of their palettes and love each one, but some of their newest releases are the color specific mini palettes. The Violets, The Nudes, The Chocolates, and The Berries, all running $14 each, or $52 for the set. Keep scrolling for swatches (on dry skin, no base, swiped once)and some FOTDs!

Fall Vibes with the Juvia's Place Nubian 2 Palette

I decided to play with some Juvia's Place makeup a few days ago and the Nubian 2 palette was calling my name. As usual, I didn't really have a goal for the look, but I did forget just how pigmented Juvia's Place eyeshadows are so this look almost got out of hand really fast. I was able to save it though, and I ended up loving the fall look I ended up with. Fall-inspired makeup is my favorite!

The exact eyeshadows and placement are listed below.

Bright Glittery Eyes with Nude Lips

A few days ago on my Instagram stories I had people vote for which look they wanted me to create.

Bright or black smokey eyes
Glitter or no glitter
Nude glossy lips, bright lips, dark matte lips, or black lips

The results were SO close with all the choices, but bright, glittery eyes with nude glossy lips was the winner. I was excited because it gave me the chance to really play with the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Volume 2 palette, which is pretty amazing. The eyeshadows layer so beautifully and blend really well. I was really impressed with it!

As always, full product details are below. Oh and if you want to follow me on Instagram... @jmarieonline.
