The perfect eyeshadow crease shade (and you already own it!)


Today I have a fun beauty tip for you. I love sharing these because anything that makes my life easier could probably make someone else’s life easier too. Does anyone else struggle to find a perfect eyeshadow crease shade? You know what I’m talking about- the shade that you tuck into your crease as a transition shade to add a little bit of dimension to your eyeshadow look. 

What’s the perfect eyeshadow transition shade? Hint- you already own it! 

I stumbled upon this trick a few months ago and I’ve been swearing by it ever since. If I mix my bronzer with my blush that I’m wearing that day, I get the perfect crease shade every time! It’s truly that simple. I dip a fluffy brush into both shades and blend it into my crease. Voila! Done. 

This is the simplest trick in the history of ever but I swear it produces perfection every time! No more guess work and less packing to do when I go out of town. If I bring an eyeshadow palette that doesn’t have what I need I’m still going to be ok- just mix my bronzer and my blush and I’ve got this. I also think it really makes my makeup come together when my eye situation perfectly matches my cheek situation. You have to try it!

In the picture above, I’m wearing the Tarte Weekender palette and it’s everything. Matchy matchy. I find all-in-one palettes to be marvelous when it comes to using this trick because everything is laid out for me right there and there is no guess work. Plus, I know my makeup will look seamless. 

In other beauty news, I’m trying something new with my eyebrows. I usually fill them in meticulously, but I’m finding I don’t mind them as much if I trim them down and brush them into place with some Brow Power. For low maintenance days or just in the morning when I’m going to the gym I really like how minimalist it looks! 

I’m also using a new skincare product by Tarte and the before/after pictures are insane. I’ll share with you ASAP since I know you’re probably curious! 

Lastly, now that I’m in my early 30s I find that my skin doesn’t look as firm. It doesn’t bother me that much but I know it’s only going to get worse over time. I always look for new things in skincare but I’m trying a facial tool that’s pretty spendy that is supposed to tighten, contour, and firm things up a little bit. I’m always really skeptical of anything with huge claims so I took some before pictures. I can’t wait to share if it makes a difference. It should be about 60 days before I see a noticeable change. 

Do you have any beauty tips or tricks for me? I’d love to read about them in the comments!
