    Very cool! Im 29 and just starting to care and learn about makeup. I’m going to go check out their pallets for darker skin. Thanks girl!

    So useful! My complexion is so weird, I have a giant red birthmark & dark circles. This should help!

    Do you do this instead of your typical contouring? I’m about to completely overhaul my makeup drawer and wasn’t sure if I should go with a CC palette or with contouring supplies. OR BOTH! 🙂

      It really depends on where I am going and how much time I have. I deff do cover the dark eyes always. As far as contouring I like to use a powder foundation a shade darker then my skin to contour daily- it’s easy and very subtle! DEFF do both if you need to overhaul! 🙂

    What lip color are you wearing in the after photo? It looks lovely!

      Hey Ana! I am using a stain lip color and it is color blur by Maybelline in Fast and Fuchsia with a bit of gloss over it.
