Trendsetting in Tokyo Looks

Hello Ladies,

My mood is a little better and I've finished cropping my photos, so to celebrate such an occasion I will do a double post today!

I finally put aside Stila's Moscow travel palette and naturally picked up the Trendsetting in Tokyo since I'm obsessed with almost everything Japanese. I will do an actual review tomorrow, but for now here are some looks I created with this palette in the past few days.

Yup, that's the same hat as seen in my flapper makeup look
First time I picked up the palette and was pretty excited about trying it... but I wasn't so excited about actually using it. I am not really happy with this look, but my makeup buddies at work liked it quite a lot so maybe I'm too hard on myself?

Used the cheek color here, I think it's pretty natural looking

Since the colors were not applying as well as I hoped for, I decided to go for a simpler look by only using the lightest colors in the palette. I added a little bit of black for the accent. Again, it turned out MEH :(

This is my favorite look but it also took the longest to create. I'm not very fast in putting makeup anyway, but with this it felt like it took FOREVER! The color just wouldn't blend! Not a good thing in my book. 

So what do you think? Should I keep trying to come up with looks that work using this palette?

  1. I have this palette and was thinking of selling it because I didn't really know what to do with it, but you have given me so many great ideas. Thanks!

  2. These are really cute! I only really got this palette because I too love all things Japanese, and while I kinda like the colors, I just didn't really know what to do...Xp
