Midnight Blue FOTD


Hey everyone! I'm back with another FOTD today! I was browsing through the clearance section at work the other day and found this gorgeous Hydro Smoke shadow duo from LA Splash. I'm generally not a fan of dark blue shadows on myself, but this one is so shimmery and gorgeous that I just couldn't turn it down for $3.99!

The pigmentation of the blue shadow was awesome. It looked fantastic over the Cottage Cheese NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil, but the black just couldn't get dark enough. I had to follow it up with my all-time favorite black shadow: Milani Pitch Black.

There was also a lot of fallout with the LA Splash duo. I always do my eyes last and I totally regretted doing that today. I had to clean up with Q-Tips, concealer, and more pressed powder.. but the finished look was fantastic and totally worth it!
