Pixi by Petra, found at Target caught me with their new "Tinkerbell" palette!
Tinkerbell! Oh how I lived for the yearly holiday black and white TV showing of Peter Pan! I lived for the moment Tinkerbell appears. I would be Tinkerbell. I watched the show dressed in my tutu and ballet shoes!
Yet, I am no Tinkerbell at an AARP range age, 5'8", with long brown hair and hazel-green eyes.
Ah, this was my chance of a lifetime not to passed up. My return to the beach is a return to my childhood dreams.
The makeup is soft and glittery. In the beachy bright sun would I look like a very sad, down and out Las Vegas-has-been?
I gave it a go!
The eye-shadows do tend to float about on the eyelids even with use of a primer. Yet, I did discover to use a darker shadow over the soft glittery ones to good effect.
Even better I re-purposed the eye shadows into lipstick! Just use a lip pencil, then layer on the Tinkerbell eyeshadow, and finish with a layer of the palette's lip-color. This way the lip-color stays on forever! I did the bronzy gold under a wine color to gorgeous effect!
I am not a bad-ass, I am a good girl: yet I am not a blush-using girl. Yet again, I adore the supplied blush used to even the skin-tone. Just swept everywhere including the eyelids; if forgoing the shadow colors.
I could travel with this palette and need nothing more than a tinted foundation and mascara.
Tinkerbell, oh how I've missed you!
Now I need to find-me a tutu. Ballet slippers too!
