The post so nice, I’m sharing it twice!
This post was written for & previously featured on my past blog, Beauty Bylaws. It’s a post I really enjoyed photographing and writing, though, so I’m sharing it again today. 🙂
Have you ever looked down into your makeup bag and seen a theme? Sometimes it’s a group of products from the same brand or three different dramatic black eyeliners that you use to create your 60’s inspired makeup looks, or in some cases, it’s less of a theme and more of an aesthetic. The other day, I went to add a lip gloss to my makeup bag as I was getting ready for work and I realized that it was chalkful of gorgeous jewel toned colours. Sapphire, Topaz, Amethyst, you name it, my rather plain bag was speckled with these rich, earthy colours in some shape or another. And so, I did what any other self-respecting (occasional) blogger would do: I dug through my makeup collection to grab a few more of these beauties, took out my camera and got to snappin’.
So…what did ya think!? Aren’t they STUNNING? I have to say, though I don’t use all of these products all of the time, they’re kind of like the pride and joy of my makeup collection. Well, how could they not be!? They’re beautiful, versatile, unique and eye-catching. They’re like Pokémon but better. They’re pretty. Precious. Gems, even.
