These are looks I did in the week but they both failed.
I was trying to recreate an Alicia Keyes look but it didn't come out the way I wanted it to. I used the E.L.F. Luxe palette. I applied the crease color too heavily and the lid color should have been softer.
Also I was watching a Youtube guru: TheIslandBeauty and saw her use the MAC 217 and blend out the NYX jumbo pencil in Milk on her eyelids. So because these pencil always crease on my oily lid even using UDPP. I decided to blend it using my 217 rather than my fingers and I added my colors and the look wasn't doing it for me, I think its the colors i used which were from the 120 palette.Also I placed tape at the edge to get a clean sharp edge...hmmmm...my blending got too messy there...lol...
Also for my color combination I just choose colors that I thought would show up on my skin tone. As you can see from the hot pink, it was fading. So I need a better base for that hot pink. Being that its a matte color pink, I think the 120 palettes matte colors texture aren't the greatest. Apart from that, I will search for that right base to use these matte colors with. I think my next option is the Mehron AQ palettes (as soon as I purchase them).
Anyways more looks coming soon and definitely some reviews!
