A few weeks ago, I was enticed by the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Holiday Eye Shadow Palette. Perusing Macy’s for Christmas gifts, I figured it would be OK to treat myself, especially since it was extremely affordable. The Anastasia eye shadows on their own are $12, so 14 of them for under $40 is quite a bargain. The shadows are great quality, they are extremely blendable and you have an amazing choice to create lots of looks. They are mostly shimmers with very few matte colors, so you have have to reach into your personal collection to create a more defined shape.
15-year-old Me stands in front of a mirror inspecting the day’s outfit. It is my favorite, a red cotton collared shirt with sleeves that go past the wrist and a pair of true blue jeans. Which eye shadow should I match with this look? I wonder. Blue or red? Well, red’s too loud for school, so I’ll just go with blue.
