H&M Hello Kitty Palette FOTD

This palette is a gift from my best buddy :D Lots of love for her! :)

The colors are pigmented and gives good color pay-off when swatched and also on lid. I didn't expect much from the brand's makeup but this palette surely did not disappoint.

However, this palette is definitely more suitable for creating smokey look rather than every day look.

Here are the swatches:

The pearly white e/s is usually used to highlight brow bone and as a base near the inner third of eyelid. The bright blue e/s is applied in for the middle of lid area. Build the color up to near outer corner of the lid. Apply the black e/s at the outer third corner of the eye and blend up towards the crease to create depth. Finish the look by lining the upper and lower lash line. Layer the liner with a hint of the bright blue e/s.


[I replaced the black e/s with a purply-blue shimmery e/s from NYX in 122 Morocco for less smoky eye (make sense??? :P)]
