Pantone shade No. 16-1546 (Living Coral) has been declared the color of the year for 2019.
Ready for a warmer weather, and willing to try the Electric Palette from Urban Decay I created this look:
The eye shadows are highly pigmented, they have zero fall out and they blend like a dream. Watch the video to see swatches and how the eye shadow performed.

Even though The Ultimate Velvet Collection by Lisa Eldridge is currently out of stock, I was lucky enough to put my hands on Morning Velvet, a bright orange red perfect for a bronzed skin. The unique velvety texture was a challenge to photograph.
If you were ever intimidated by a red lipstick, it’s not the case with this one. You know how a matte lipstick can be sometimes hard to apply, and you have to moisturize your lips really well before wearing it? Well, it’s not the case with this one because it applies like a dream. It does not pull your skin and has a soft, creamy consistency. The pigmentation is phenomenal and you don’t even need a lip liner. I do recommend using a lip brush just to perfect the contour. You can wear it as a stain for a more natural look, or go full on and enjoy a bright good old red lip.
I wore this the whole day, ate, drank and it lasted. The best thing is that it wears out gradually and it leaves a nice stain on the lips. Unlike other matte lipsticks that dry out your lips, Morning Velvet feels comfortable and creamy.
