    Favorite pastel-colored beauty product? I’m pretty anti-pastel as a rule, but someone already said Up the Amp – if that counts as pastel, that. Love Up the Amp.
    Favorite smoky eyeshadow? All of them? My go to easy smoky eye is with Mac Copperplate, which is my go-to for a lot of things. But I love smoky eyes, and do different greys, bronzes and navy all with a fair amount of regularity.
    Favorite vampy lip color? Not great with vampy. I have pale skin and dark hair and wind up looking like morticia almost no matter what I do. I do have a nice oxblood lipstick from sephora though. Don’t remember the name. It was meant to replace some old drugstore “blood” colored lipstick I had in high school that is long since dried up and out of production. Can’t remember when I last wore it.

    TheBalm Stubborn. It’s a light peach color. Perfect base if you want anything darker in the crease. I like how it’s not too frosty. Also NYX Angel blush.
    Ulta Gold Dust(?), a slightly cool toned chocolate brown. It’s my go to brown. Not matte, but not too shimmery and not frosy. Just a slight shimmer to give it “life”.
    L/s – it’s a ridiculously cheap European drugstore brand, Miss Sporty l/s, something like Seduction(?) if I remember right. It can be worn dark, but I actually like to sheer it out for a MLBB shade. It’s a cool plum/red. Love it!
