I wish I could recall, LOL.
I’ve been doing so many one-and-dones lately that a shimmer topper on my lid feels like a fancy day.

My last two looks were complementary at best, but I did love them. Both of them were from the Norvina palette, too. My latest was the periwinkle and purple Soul and Celestial…worn with a shirt in the same darkened periwinkle color.<3 Before that, I tried mimicking Ofra's blush draping video and blended the pink eyeshadow Love into the pink blush Dedication from theBalm's Will Powder palette…obviously for Valentine's Day!

Because I’m a purple freak, it was absolutely Natasha Denona Mini Love e/s palette! Really makes the green in my eyes pop.

Nowt special but I used MAC Phloof for the first time in absolutely ages (it’s always been a favourite highlight/lid brightener for me; I am afraid to look at MAC’s site in case it’s discontinued too). I used it on my very inner corners – along the inner bridge of my nose where I have darkness or perhaps it’s just shadow from my actual nose, and along the inner 1/3 of my lid and then used another beloved old fave – the brown side of MAC’s Illusionary/Burning Ambition – on the rest of my lid and under my lower lashes. GOSH Metallic Brass pencil to line. Too Faced Sweetie Pie bronzer as a blush and I think a d/c’d Clarins lipgloss (those wonderful Gloss Prodiges they used to have) in Raspberry on my lips.

I had two looks I did over the weekend that I really liked — one from the Naked 3 palette, which to me has always seemed like a limited palette so I’ve been trying to experiment with it more. I also got Colourpop’s Stone Cold Fox, which had sold out but then came back into stock so I was really excited to play with it. I did a silver/gray eye look — normally not my favorite, since my coloring looks better in warm shades — but it looked so good, I quite enjoyed it. Those two palettes also have several complementary shades so I’m thinking I’ll combine them for a look next.

I have done a couple lately that I have really enjoyed: a neutral look from Lorac’s Noir palette, with Primrose on the whole lid, Dahlia on the lower lid and Whiskey nearest to the lashline.
A second one, is using a soft cream shade from ND’s Glam and the olive shades from CT’s The Rebel 2020 going from light to dark on my eyelids.

I did a Carmindy-inspired (although with a stronger hand than she uses-I favor fuller coverage) look Tuesday-a variation on her friend Joy’s khaki/green/gold look from Get Positively Beautiful-using Sydney Grace Deanna on the lid, Essence Bonjour Montreal 9 in the crease, and UD Stranded on the inner corner, with UD Double Life liner and Fenty Ivy League mascara completing the eye. I think it looked great, especially with Marc Jacobs Love Drunk gloss finishing off the total look!

I do so many different looks, but my favorites are always the cool smoky neutrals. I think Huda Smoky Obsessions was my favorite look.

Runners up are one I did with Morphe Bronze Goals (using the cooler smokier tones) and the bright purple look I did with BH’s Amethyst birthstone palette.
