I don’t know why it took me so long to hop on the Palette Bingo train, but now that I have done it, I am pretty pleased with the look and might just have to do it more often. For those of you that don’t know, Palette Bingo is where you take a large palette like this BH Cosmetics 88 Palette in Cool Matte, number the rows and coloumns and play a little bingo. I used RANDOM.ORG to draw 5 numbers 1-11 and then 1-8. You can use any other products with these 5 colours but you have to incorporate them all!
The colours I got were: a shimmery sky blue(B), a beige(I), a brown/gold(N), pure purple (G) and a periwinkle purple(O). I played around with the colours a lot because I just couldn’t find a combination I loved especially with the darkest purple in there. In the end, I settled on this mermaid-type look that is very similar to something I wore in my first blog post – imagine that!
First, I used Urban Decay Primer Potion with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. After blending that in with my finger, I used the I shadow to set everything. I used the N shadow in the inner corner of my eye to keep it light while using the O eyeshadow in the crease. The B shade ended up on my lid and looked quite green in comparison to the crease colour. Though I liked how it looked at this point, I had to incorporate G so I deepened the outter corner and did some extra blending. I ended up going back in with some of my inner corner and lid shadow to brighten them up and create a seemless blend. To finish, I ran the Rimmel Scandaleyes eye shadow stick in Bulletproof Beige in my waterline and set it with my golden N shade to make it last. I added the Dior Diorshow Overcurl mascara onto my lashes and that’s my look!
