The other day, I wanted to do a quick look before I went out to the store…it ended up being a super bright look with Morphe 35B (the bright palette) using NYX Milk as a base. And yesterday, I wore NYX Haze (grey lipstick) to the pharmacy…I just forgot I had it on! :3

oh absolutely! That’s when I have the freedom to try out new techniques or styles and crazy colors! And that’s the best time to play with liquid eyeliner- no pressure to get done in a hurry or be perfect πŸ™‚

Constantly, it’s what I do most of the time! I come home and after my kid is in bed, I go in the bathroom and I break out all my palettes and just mess around in the time I have before I have to shower and go to bed. It’s very relaxing. Sometimes my husband pops in and sees me looking like a crazy panda half listening to a podcast and swatching a colour on my full lid just to see how it looks at full pigmentation.

Definitely. If I have a special occasion coming up, I’ll decide what shades I’ll be wearing and I’ll do a trial run to see how it looks. And, like you, I’ll play around with my stash when I have time at home. I’ll try new techniques, etc. It’s fun. πŸ™‚

Other than swatching products when they arrive and preparing them for posting on my social media, I never play with makeup. As I said before, I only wear makeup on weekend and holidays and the rare times when I have an appointment during the week, I do try to change up the looks I create on the weekends; I do one day cool and the other warm. But that’s about it.

Actually, yes!! Sometimes before I remove all of my makeup I like to play with eyeshadows, I create some fun looks to see how they would look on me and sometimes I end up recreating them on a special day, that way I know how it looks and it won’t be my first time doing it ?

Same! I always take a baby wipe and take off one eye then go in with whatever I’ve been thinking might be fun during the day. Sometimes I just take something really out of character for me and do something dramatic with it just to see how I like it, get used to seeing my face like that.

The other thing I do is take products I don’t really use much and see if I can’t use them elsewhere. Unflattering liquid lip colours as eyeliner + a duochrome powder on top to give them more dimension for example.

I have begun to lately. It’s hard for me though because I’m just not very good at what colors will go with what, so most of the time it looks muddy and then I get discouraged. It’s easier to play when everything else looks good and I’m just trying to coordinate a lipstick.

Yes! I just did yesterday and I might again today.

I’m glad I was just playing yesterday, because I layered two lip products and the lip topper I used caused the base color to break up weirdly. I’ll need to test the topper with some other formulas to see if it does that to everything.

Oh goodness, YES!!! I love playing/experimenting and trying looks I probably wouldn’t wear at work. I’ll often do this in the evening, before bed-time. If we’re going out for coffee or a bite to eat, so much the better but even if not, knowing I can wash it all off before bed makes it even better because if something doesn’t work, no one is going to see it because I’m pressed for time and don’t have time to wash off and start again, which is what would happen if I experimented while getting ready for work.
