Ooooo shiney! ooo ooo ooo sparkley!! Magpie! magpie!
But yeah the sparkle/shimmer is over the top sometimes.
Have you ever done makeup for someone who's skin drinks up color? As in you apply a dark or colorful eyeshadow for example, and it just blends in/goes away? I don't know if I'm explaining myself well, or if it matters even. I've been 'solving' it by buying very dark, or very pigmented colors. (I have a lot of Loreal's HIP line).
I just feel like a weirdo.
