Intent and Instincts

Indeed a “Witch Tip,” but also wise words all around…

Always, always, ALWAYS trust your intuition – the “gut” is the best read of any situation you will ever have (and, you were born with it)!  And our intention will lay out the path before us – remember the phrase “be careful what you wish for,” because that is exactly what this is.  Be ultra clear with what you want, leaving a little wiggle room for the unique possibilities the Universe may see (that you do not…yet).  And trust that inner guide, for it shall ever steer you in your best direction.

Can you manifest your dreams?  Try the above and watch the magic unfold…

Kat Von D Shade + Light

I just saw this new Shade + Light Contour Palette by Kat Von D.  It isn’t surprising that companies are tying new products in to the massive trend that is contouring (I’ve written about the topic many times!) See the word “contour” and suddenly a palette with varying tones of brown, taupe or auburn, paired with some brighter, highlighting tones are “contouring.” (Should I put in the “lol” I am thinking?!) 😉

But no matter what the palette is called, or what trend it plays to, it’s always nice to have a selection to choose from – one product, many uses.  We LOVE that!

This palette features a trio of quads – Neutral, Cool, and Warm, along with a handy guide!

  1. 3 x 0.08 oz Base shades in Laetus (creamy nude), Lazarus (cool taupe), Ludwin (peachy bronze) 
  2. 3 x 0.04 oz Contour shades in Samael (dusty fawn), Saleos (smoky brown), Succubus (rich rust) 
  3. 3 x 0.04 oz Define shades in Solas (espresso brown), Shax (jet black), Sytry (chocolate brown) 
  4. 3 x 0.04 oz Highlight shades in Lucius (soft beige), Liberatus (pinkish ivory), Latinus (golden bisque) 
  5. Step-by-step contouring guide

Per Sephora: 

Transform your eyes through the art of contouring. After tapping into makeup pro secrets, Kat Von D created this first-of-its-kind eye shadow palette. It’s specially-designed for eye contouring, a groundbreaking technique once used only by beauty experts to define and enhance eyes.

I think the colors are great and, again, always nice to have a variety of options.  Keep in mind (as I’m sure you already know), you are never limited to the pairings palettes offer – mix them up and play around!  Warms and Cools and Neutrals can look fabulous together, and so long as you have varying intensities (light, mid and dark), you can contour so as you please!
