EOTD 3.4.08 - Hard Candy SONIC

I have been out of commission recently due to work and being sick (not a great combination), so I decided it was time to play with makeup, as that always makes me feel better! I have had a Hard Candy pallet sitting my makeup box for months: SONIC. It is full of great neutral colors seen below.






I used the white as a base, as it has a great golden undertone to it, which is hard to see in the pallet above. I foiled it on using mixing medium thanks to Vanessa (3 parts water:1 part glycerin) on the inner portion of the lid. On the outer corners, I used the golden olive color and blended it into the white. In the crease, I used the dark black with gold flecks.

Let me tell you what - the whole mixing medium thing has improved my makeup application and staying power so much, it's hard to believe! I had always used water, but this makes such a difference - thanks Vanessa!!







Here are the swatches from the pallet, in order as to it's location - these are great everyday colors, definitely!!

  1. OH. MY. GOODNESS. My jaw fell to the floor! That is SOOOOO pretty! I love gold and yellow gold, even gold with a copper base, and this just looks so divine on you!

    I am really glad you liked the mixing medium and that it worked out for ya and noticed a difference, starting out in makeup I used water only to have my eyeshadows disappear in the middle of the day, but this gives it some staying power!
