Hello everyone! I’m Karoliina from Bones & Lilies. Luna asked me to do a guest post and I was very happy, I love this blog! So here’s a little look I did today, just for you
I used the new palette by Sugarpill. It’s called Sparkle Baby and it has a wonderful pastel theme going on. I was a bit hesitant at first, since I’m not the biggest fan of pastel shades, but the colours go so well together and have a gorgeous water color effect that I think I’ll be using only this palette for some time!
Sparkle Baby palette. From left to right: Kitten Parade, Frostine, Candy Crush and Hotsy Totsy. I really love how much effort Sugarpill puts into the palette design, the visuals are always different and have a theme!
I used Frostine, the lavender shade, for the inner corners and as a brow bone highlight. It looks a lot darker on the palette than on skin, with my skin tone it worked really well as a highlight. Frostine has a little bit of sparkle, but less than the other shades.
On the lid is Candy Crush, a light blue/aqua. It’s very sparkly and very light, a very pretty shade on its own, too. I’m also an avid Candy Crush Saga player so the name appeals to me ;D
For the crease I chose Kitten Parade. It’s a light peach colour with a gold shift. It’s the reason I originally was interested in the palette, just the name of the shade alone is great, and I love peach tones with a shift, like Sugarpill‘s Asteria and Fyrinnae‘s Rapunzel Had Extensions
To darken the crease further, I added a touch of Hotsy Totsy. It’s the darkest shade in the palette, a dark cool toned pink. It blends very nicely with Kitten Parade but I wouldn’t put it next to Candy Crush. I padded some Kitten Parade on top of Hotsy Totsy to blend it in better.
All in all I really like this palette. The water color like effect is something I like very much, and not all shades can be used for it. Sparkle Baby has the perfect light, pastel toned shades that have lots of sparkle to really bring your look to life in sunlight!
And one more artsy shot to show how the shades blend together nicely!
