1960s Twiggy Style Eye Makeup Tutorial

Fall Colors: Zoya Sunset Palette

The latest palette from Zoya is the Sunset Palette. The Sunset Palette is filled with the rich, beautiful colors you see in Autumn. I think they look like Thanksgiving! There are 5 saturated cream polishes and one Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm in this collection. The colors are warm and brilliant. A perfect pop of color against this seasons beautiful neutral sweaters! I have included Amazon Affiliate Links in this post to help you find pretty things. Or a perfect match for a rusty monochromatic look! All of you with warm skin tones are going to love this collection!   The colors are opaque and provide smooth coverage in 2 coats. My swatches are two or three coats depending on the color.

Best Pink Nail Polish 2021: Zoya Rose Palette

Being a fan of rose and berry nail colors, I just love this palette from Zoya, the Rose Palette!!! It is a gorgeous collection of nail polish colors for the fall season and beyond. Having a pink themed wedding? You may find the perfect nail color to compliment your theme here in this 5 color collection. This collection also includes a Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm in the shade Starlet which coordinates perfectly with the nail polish colors in the Rose Palette. I like that Zoya has included a lip gloss to match their nail colors in this collection! All of the polishes in this collection are creams. My shimmer fans, you will have to add a topper to get your glittery fix. All of these colors are opaque with two coat coverage although, I find I like two of them best with three coats. All of my nail polish swatches were finished with Zoya Ultra Glossy Seal. It's good stuff! It dries quickly to a super shiny finish. Let's have a look at this beautiful collection.
