Blue Lagoon

I used this afternoon as an excuse to try out the Real Techniques Starter Set Brush Kit that my sweetheart best friend bought me as an early birthday present and - as expected - it's awesome! I'm a longtime lover of the Core Collection set so I didn't expect anything less. 

I put together this look using mostly brushes from the Starter Set and was so pleased with the results. I'm stoked to finally have these brushes as part of my brush kit now. I plan on writing up about both sets eventually so keep an eye out if you're unfamiliar with these brushes or have never used them before.

Also loving these lashes by Eldora right now and have some more really badass lashes by them that I'm excited to show you soon.

All of the shadows I used are from the BH Cosmetics 120 Color Palette, which is one of my favourite palettes to use when I'm using bright colours.

Take care :)
