Make Up For Ever Black Friday 2017 | Artist Shadow Palette Ideas

Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows
Much Ado About Plum

Beginning November 22nd (and ending November 27th), Make Up For Ever kicks off their Artist Shadow Black Friday deal where you can purchase 12 Artist Shadows for $75 (a $252 value). Last year, Anastasia had a 50% off sale on their single eyeshadows, and I put together some “quads” for inspiration, so here are some ideas for filling up 12 slots. If you have yours planned, I’d love to hear it 🙂 I avoided picking brow bone type shades as those can depend on the skin tone!

The first set of shades were selected to fit a plum theme–slightly cooler, warmer, and more earthy plums and taupes. If you want more mattes in yours, try switching out a few of the shimmery taupes for some of the browns listed in the Neutrals or Mattes below.

The Best & Worst of Make Up For Ever Artist Face Colors

Make Up For Ever Artist Face Colors - Blushes
Make Up For Ever Artist Face Colors – Blushes

Make Up For Ever Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is available in three types–Highlighter, Sculpting, and Blush–with a total of 34 shades available. The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush). There are three finishes–matte, shimmer, and pearl but was less obvious. In fact, the majority of the “matte” shades were more like semi-matte or natural matte where there were no distinctive shimmer particles but they seemed to take on the natural finish of the skin, which gave the “mattes” a particularly seamless finish on the skin but might be dewier on oilier skin types than desired. None of the 34 shades available were frosted or metallic except three of the highlighters (H100, H106, H312).

The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, depending largely on the shade, though they were always buildable if they were not opaque in a single layer. Some of the deeper, more matte shades were less forgiving and took more effort to diffuse and blend, even when I used a lighter hand or a more feathery brush. The texture was smooth, velvety, and moderately dense without any powderiness or dustiness in the pan. The formula has lasted between eight and ten hours on me.

B402

Make Up For Ever B402 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium orange with warm, red undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, while the texture was moderately dense and needed slightly heavier hand (or denser brush) to pickup product. For the richness of the hue, I think that type of texture made it easier to use, since it was possible to build up coverage as well as diffuse it for a softer look if desired. The powder was blendable on the skin without losing its vibrancy. It wore well for nine hours on me.

B306

Make Up For Ever B306 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with just a touch more product layered on top.

The texture was soft, smooth, and moderately dense but wasn’t too firmly pressed in the pan, so it was still easy to pickup with a brush and blend out on the skin. The blush started to look more natural in finish as I blended and buffed the powder into my skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

B216

Make Up For Ever B216 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a rich, medium magenta with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It was intensely pigmented and had a finish that looked more luminous as it was buffed onto the skin, though it was never shimmery. The blush had a smooth, moderately dense consistency that was surprisingly blendable for such an intense shade; it wasn’t effortless, but it wasn’t a struggle at all. The color stayed vibrant for nine hours on my skin.
