Here’s my amateur hour take on intentional motion blur using some of the new Makeup Geek Soft Focus Colors and a couple of Devinah Cosmetics Xploders pressed pigments. I just felt like messing around and doing something different than I normally do with my photos. In the slider, the second and third images are the standard-edit and unedited versions so you can actually see what the products look like on the skin.
Makeup Geek Soft Focus Colors Used (see swatches):
- Lavender Dreams – Outer transition area
- Bellini – Inner transition area
- Code Blue – Outer lid, outer lower lashline
- Mint To Be – Inner lid, inner lower lashline
Devinah Cosmetics Xploders Pressed Pigments Used (see swatches):
- Everlasting Gobstoppers – Center of lid, applied over Too Faced Glitter Glue
- Marshmallow Pillows – Inner corner
The Makeup Geek shades worked out well and were very pigmented for being lighter, bordering-on-pastel shades. They blended easily and were very buildable. The Devinah Shades are very shiny and sparkly and make most other shimmers in my collection look dull and muted in comparison. They do have sparkle fallout and quite a bit of it. Just be aware before using them.
