I tried a few products from celebrity makeup artist Jay Manuel’s Beauty collection. Jay Manuel has a beauty app (you can get it in the App Store, it’s free) that helps you matches colors for you using a photo. In the app you can either take a selfie or use a photo already in your album. I chose taking a selfie with no makeup on. Don’t take your selfie in direct sunlight, or else it will wash you out. Try to take a photo in a brightly lit room to get the best matches for makeup. I tried a few times and finally got a great natural lighting photo.
I will start with the Narcotic Eyeshadow Quad, it is a great combination of colors. I loved all four of them so much. They are the perfect combination for a beautiful smokey eye. You can layer the colors to make them super opaque or you can make them a sheer smokey eye. Combine all of them or just use a couple, it’s completely up to you. I think these colors will flatter all skin tones and look great on anyone. I used Narcotic with the both of The Ultimate Pencils in Naked and Glow. It gave me the perfect smokey eye for a night out.
I also tried a neutral quad, Trance Eyeshadow Quad, I love the colors, I used them during the day as well as the night. My eyes are dark brown and these shades really made my eyes look bigger. The colors really compliment each other and you can get really dark pigment by layering them. They are a great nude eyeshadow. I also used them with The Ultimate pencils in Naked and Glow.
The Ultimate Lip and Eye Pencils are great, I recommend both Naked and Glow for anyone. I used them both on my eyes and my lips and they blend well and are great nude liners. Glow has a bit of sparkle in it so I used it in the corner of my eyes to give my eyes that extra twinkle. I use Naked in my lower waterline of my eye and it made my eyes look brighter and bigger. It has been my favorite neutral colored pencil for my eyes. I love how easily they glide on and how the color is evenly applied.
