The BareMinerals "Degree Of Dazzling" Holiday Set includes 20 miniature sized eye shadows, perfect for any mood, outfit, or occasion. In my opinion, this is one of the best value sets they have launched in years. The finishes and the color range are flexible for any personality...and while it is geared towards the Holidays, this set can merge well with running errands and work too.
-There are 4 finishes to play with from creamy velvets, high shines, and sparkling glimmers, to deep liners.
-There are 5 color families, warm neutrals, seductive greys, perfect pinks, majestic purples, and luscious greens.
|Yoga // Black Leather // Lagoon // Toasted Espresso // Starry Nigh|
There are a few options to apply the liners.
1. If you want a soft look, use them dry.
2. For a smoldering creamy finish, mix a small amount of the shadow with PrimeTime eyelid primer (half/half).
3.To achieve fierce definition, run your liner brush under some water and mix the powder in the lid for a liquid liner.
|Iridescent Iris // Rose Gold // Deep Sea // Pewter // Stay Golden|
The High Shine shadows are perfect for Holiday parties! You can also create a foiled effect by applying them with a damp brush!
|Golden Pear // Violet Spell // Ginger Sugar // Silver Dollar // Strawberry Mouse|
The Sparkling Glimmers are feminine and subtle! I love the tiny sparkly they have! They are effortless, and chic! So pretty!
|Velvet Nude // Velvet Emerald // Velvet Mauve // Velvet Charcoal // Velvet Lavender|
The Velvet shadows have a matte finish, without looking "cakey" or dry. These are great for a soft everyday look, used on the entire eyelid as your base color. You can also use them in the crease with a dramatic smokey eye to blend and create a soft finish.
