Did you watch the Oscars last night? I'll admit, I didn't. I don't really get into the award shows. What I do though, is scour all of the photos of the stars on the red carpet the next morning. I never went to my high school prom, and I had a shotgun courthouse wedding, so having the chance to play dress up has eluded me my whole life. So, for me, there is something magical about seeing all of the celebrities looking gorgeous, dressed in the best fashions, jewelry and makeup.
While I may not have had the chance to get gussied up myself, I do love to play with makeup! I was recently surprised with an amazing assortment of cosmetics from Borghese.
I love to change up my make up look, so I tend to go for eye shadow palettes. It's a great way to mix and match shadows to create a new look every day. For my every day look, I like earth tones, and the BorgheseEclissare Color Eclipse Shadow and Light Luminous Eye Palette has every color I need to keep a fresh, natural appearance.
When I am going to an event like a wedding or baby shower, I think the Borghese Eclissare Color Eclipse 5 Shades of Torrid has nice, peachy colors that give a soft, glowing look. When I want to go a bit more dramatic, like on date night with Jason, I'd go with Borghese Color Eclipse Eclissare 5 Shades of Sultry. It has every color needed to get a sexy, smokey eye. Round off the look with Borghese liquid liner.
I have tried many shadow palettes over the years, from drugstore brands to department store shadows, and can honestly say that the Borghese shadows are by far my favorite! They glide on smooth and even. I can wear them all day without fading or crease build-up. The palettes have a magnetic closure, so you don't have to worry about the case popping open, causing the shadow to break and get all over your bag. The liquid liner is easy to apply. With the precision tip, it's simple to put it on exactly where I want it to go, and it doesn't take much pressure to get the liner to adhere to the lash line.
I don't normally wear color on my lips, but I do love a good gloss every now and again. I really like the Borghese Eclissare Color Eclipse ColorGlass Lip Gloss. There are 9 beautiful shades to choose from, so I can go from barely there color, to va-va-voom, depending on where I am going. It also glides on smooth, and doesn't feel goopy or sticky. It is long wearing, so you don't need to reapply often.
