Most of the eyeshadows used were from an Ulta kit that came out this past Christmas; it was a gift and I’m not sure it had a name, but I do know it wasn’t a permanent product. I also used a white eyeliner and black gel eyeliner from Wet ‘n’ Wild, Blushing Beige lipstick from Maybelline, e.l.f.’s brow powder, and Revlon’s Photoready Cream Blush in Pinched.
