Melt Blurr Look

Melt Blurr Look

I played around with my Melt Dark Matter stack on Saturday to create this Blurr look. I hadn’t used my Melt eyeshadow stacks in a while, so I thought they would be fun to pull out. I also tested out a new foundation which is, sadly, too dark for me. It gives great coverage though.

As you can tell, Fair Honey is too dark for me. It’s too bad because it’s a really nice foundation. It gives good coverage and it’s comfortable to wear. Plus it’s vegan. It comes in 16 shades, so if one matches you, you might like it.

I’m still not that comfortable with brown eyeshadows, so I thought it couldn’t hurt to play around with these. You all know I love my Naked Basics palette, which I’ve gifted to friends, given away on my blog and it’s part of my current UD giveaway. It’s so versatile! And while I don’t normally pair it with other brown shades because I like to use complex duochromes or brights, it works pretty well to complement the Melt Dark Matter stack.

What have you done to get out of your comfort zone lately?

  • I always think that browns look so great with blue eyes! I have opposite colouring of you: dark brown hair, olive skin with yellow undertones and dark brown eyes and brown tones are really my ‘comfort zone’. I use brown shadow mostly when I’m in a hurry and want to look a bit polished with very little effort.

  • Brown look great on you! I love this combo and the bold lip really makes it.

  • Soft neutral eye look with a gorgeous fun lip – yes… you are rocking it. I love you in browns… it just makes your eyes sparkle.

  • I agree with Brooke! Your eyes are just glowing! Browns may not be as fun as your usual brights, but wow are they flattering on you ?

  • Wow, I really love the neutral brown eye with the bright lip color! Absolutely stunning!

  • Nice to see a neutral brown eye look. Those Melt Stacks are definitely appealing to me. Too bad, the Tarte foundation was too dark. Could CoverFX Drops lighten it up enough to make it wearable?

  • I love this look on you, such a beautiful take on a brown smoky eye with bold lip. And again, your lashes, I can’t get over them!! So long and luscious!

  • I am incredibly pale and have been searching for the right coverage for over a year. While doing research I stumbled over a new product. Bare Minerals illuminating foundation. They come in single boxes or if you get lucky, a box of three. The foundation, application brush and finishing powder. I went to Ulta first. They had shell and didn’t know it went lower. But it was close but not in stock in the 3 pack. I made them call another store and still nothing. I went to Sephora, the girl was wonderful, helped me find my color, porcelain, and even though I couldn’t get the 3 pack. Soft release so not out and I’m kinda upset about that since the brush is as much as the entire kit. Misleading promotion. But it’s wonderful foundation. I wore it out in the Texas heat and it worked amazing. If you don’t like bare minerals I was shown Tarte and I pointed out it was a thicker full coverage and I needed a lighter, breathable coverage. I was shown the CC cream in the lightest color and it was amazing. I may go back and get it just to switch up depending on what my needs are. Good luck
    I love your blog so much.

    • Thanks for the tip! My perfect match is actually the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops in N10. However, I was told the tarte foundation was awesome so I should try it, so I bought it to review. As you can tell, it makes me look like I have a tan 😛
      I’ve tried the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Gel in Opal, and that mixed with the Custom Cover Drops is nice. I didn’t like the pressed bare minerals foundation.

      • I actually looked into the cover fx drops because of your success. But it meant needing something to mix. When I stumbled over the bare minerals one, it had some of the same qualities of the cover fx. Brand new, not even fully released. This isn’t the other foundations. I was really very impressed. And to find a skin match was awesome. You should get a,sample and Check them out. Or not. Have a great one and hope your eyes are continuing to heal well.

        • I’ll check Sephora for a sample 🙂 Thanks for the tip! My eyes are continuing to heal. The only issue I have now is light sensitivity and that I’m still putting drops in a few times a day.

  • I’ve been trying to wear more bold and bright lipsticks because I usually just stick to more natural colors and occasionally a retro red.
