Today was a matte play day! I really wanted to use some of those Concrete Minerals Matte Pigments I have; I kept forgetting to bring them up into the makeup room and out of the office and so they have been getting neglected for far too long! I haven’t played with straight up matte pigments in a really long time, and while these are ultra smooth and easy to work with as far as mattes go, my stupid right eye was just nahhht having it and wouldn’t blend at a little part on my lid (you can see in the closed eye picture, it looks like i tried to photoshop blur it. I didn’t!)

Other than that though, I really liked this look. Generally I see people either do a super shimmery look with some mattes, or an all matte look, so I tried something different by doing a mostly matte with some shimmer. The main lid shadows are matte but the glitter liner has some sparkle, and so does the inner corner and lower lash line shades.

    I first saw your swatches of concrete minerals some time in November and I’ve been contemplating on buying them since then, I think this is a sign! :)
