Steph: Hey guys, and welcome back to my channel. Today’s video is going to be a full-face First Impressions… I will say a couple of the products are not First Impressions, just because I didn’t have anything new, but most of the products are new to me, and a lot of the things you see on my face right now are actually from one single palette, and that’s what I’m most excited about to share you because I recently found it, fell in love with it, and I think you guys will, too.
It is the brand Deck of Scarlett, and I just think that the concept of them is so cool. They are a subscription service… So, you get a new palette like this every two months… First of all, I just want to say this packaging is stunning. I will take this out of the sleeve and kind of go through all the shades with you guys, give you guys the names and all that stuff in just a minute, but I just want to sit here and explain what it is. It’s a subscription service, you get a new palette every two months, and they aren’t tiny little trial size, these are full-size palettes. You get three eyeshadows in here, a blush, a highlight… I got two lip colors, and then I also got an eyeliner in my box.
So, you kind of have a full-face in one little travel-friendly palette–which I appreciate–and the thing that I think is just the coolest about this, is each one is a collaboration with a different Youtuber. So, they’re kind of just helping spread love in the beauty community here on YouTube, which I always think we could use more of. This one is a palette with Nazanin Kavari, and she is stunning. I actually found her because of this palette, and she’s absolutely beautiful.
So, I just think the concept of it is so cool. I was so impressed with all the products in here. As you can tell, that highlight is just…it’s really good, and I think it’s just cool to do things like this because then you get something new… You don’t know what’s coming, and you get to kind of step out of comfort zone a little bit and just try new things. The price on this is just amazing, and they’re going to give you 10% off… I have a link in the description box, but you get this palette every two months for the same price as one thing at Sephora.
So, if you’d like to see these products put to use on my face, as well as some other really cool First Impressions, then just go ahead and keep on watching.
Let’s talk about the actual box. This month, you actually get a black felt-tip liquid liner, and then you get your palette. When you pull it out of the sleeve, it is the same photo, but it has this really cool artwork on it. I really love this packaging, I think it just looks really sleek and sophisticated, and then once we open it up, then we’ll talk about all the colors.
The first shade is “Sho Cute,” and it is a pastel pink with a sliver kind of shimmer to it. Then the middle shade–I love–this is called “Taj,” and it’s kind of like a neutral, just medium-brown. Perfect for the crease.
Then the one we’re going to be actually using on our lids is called “Feeling Peachy,” and it’s this gorgeous peachy shade that has a really beautiful golden shimmer to it. It’s not glittery or chunky at all, it just has that beautiful sheen.
Then, for the face products, first is the “Baby Doll” blush. Usually, I don’t go for a really pale pink, but this looked beautiful on the cheeks, and it was super pigmented. You’ll see that in the tutorial. The highlight is called “Yasmin,” and this is a beautiful highlight. It just gives a sheen to the cheeks that looks like one of those glowing-from-within highlights. It doesn’t have any glitter or anything like that, just a beautiful sheen.
Moving on the lip shades, “Majesty” is a nice everyday pink; it’s not too pink, it’s totally wearable, and it has lighter formula than the next one. Birthday Suit is a full-coverage, light-brown shade that I love.
Now, let’s start with a tutorial. I already primed my skin with Steel of Radiance primer and then for foundation, I am using the Tarte Clay Stick Foundation stick. I am in the shade medium-neutral, and I love this. I use this, just not on camera, and it gives such a nice coverage to the skin. It’s not super heavy, and it’s not drying at all. It just looks like naturally beautiful skin, and then I’m blending all that in with this L’Oréal sponge. I do really like this one… I actually like the [INAUDIBLE 00:04:11] better though.
No need to tell you guys what’s coming next: it is the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector to cancel out my dark circles. I focus that more towards my nose where my circles are…they’re darkest, and then I will go over that with Tarte Shape Tape, and I am highlighting the skin and covering up those dark circles with that. I use a shade light-medium, and I’m just applying that right over the Becca and then down the center of my face, so hitting the bridge of the nose, the chin and then the center of the forehead.
To set the concealer, I’m using my Too Faced “Born This Way” loose powder. I really like this one, especially because it has just a little bit of luminosity to it. So, I’m just setting underneath my eyes and then along my smile lines. I just kind of bring it down the smile lines because that’s where the foundation tends to break up the most. Then, to bronze, I’m using the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Bronzer… I adore this bronzer. It just gives you the most beautiful bronze to your skin without looking like you’re wearing bronzer.
Moving on to the eyes, I’m just taking some Tarte “Shape Tape” and applying that all over the lid. This is my favorite way to prime my eyes, so I will just apply this and then set it with a little bit of that translucent setting powder, then it’s time to jump into this beautiful palette.
I’m taking the shade “Taj” first, and this is super pigmented. I did not expect it to be that pigmented, and I use a very light hand whenever I’m applying shadows. It’s really, really pigmented, and I’m just taking that on a big, fluffy brush and applying that into the crease… Like I said, this is like a light-neutral, medium-brown… This is perfect for the crease.
This isn’t new, but I just wanted to add a little bit more dimension, so I’m taking this orange shade from the Smashbox Cover Up palette, and I’m just applying this right over where we applied “Taj” before, but keeping it just a little bit lower and closer to the lid.
I really wanted to elongate my eyes and kind of make this a little more smoky, so I’m taking that same palette… I just picked up that the espresso shade on this tiny little brush. This is actually the protector for the Deck of Scarlett palette: I just use that to make a nice, clean, sharp line on the outer corner, and then I’m just darkening up that area and bringing up a little bit of that into the crease as well.
For the lid, I’m taking “Feeling Peachy” and applying that all over. This shade is so beautiful, I love shades like this. You guys know that, and I think this would be beautiful in any look like this that’s just a little bit more dramatic or just kind of washed all over the lid with mascara and super glowy skin. It would be perfect for the end of summertime as well. So, I’m just packing that all over the lid, and I’m really trying to bring that up and make my lid space just look a little bit bigger, and then I’m going to take out that liquid liner from the palette and just give myself a nice little wing, nothing too dramatic. I’m pretty impressed that I got this on camera.
You all know I was always a brush lover when I came to liquid eyeliner, but my past couple tutorials, and using this one, I think I’m back on the felt-tip train. That’s what I started out with, and they’re just so easy to use, and I love this one, it has a nice tiny tip, so it makes making a nice sharp line really easy.
Then, I’m going to in and add some mascara. This is the new Dior pump mascara. Then, I’m going to add some Lilly lashes, and these ones are really beautiful, they really go out on the ends… They flare out a ton, so if you’re looking for something that’s going to make your eyes really cat-eye, then these are the lashes you want to pick up.
Now, I’m just lining my waterline… I already did my upper waterline, and then I’m lining my lower waterline… This one is one of the Smashbox gel liners, and then I’m taking “Taj” and lightly running that all the way across my lower lash line. You don’t have to do that part, but I feel like my eyes look weird if I don’t. Then, I’m taking a little bit of that “Feeling Peachy” and adding that right into the inner third of the eye; I feel like it just brings everything together, and it’s a fun little pop on the lower lash line.
So, now I’m picking up the shade “Baby Doll” and applying that… This is what I mean about using this as a way to get out of your comfort zone; I usually would never pick up a really pink blush, but it beautiful on the cheekbones. I really like this blush. Then, I’m using the PUR “Contour Diaries”… I’ve really been enjoying this lately, and I’m really just keeping this towards the very back of my contour. I didn’t want to bring it down too far, and then I always just add a little bit on the sides of my chin.
This was the favorite part of this whole palette: the highlighter. I would honestly buy this palette just for this highlight, it is so stunning on the skin, it’s very, very glowy, but it doesn’t look like a bunch of product. It looks like your skin is just naturally super glowy and healthy. So, I applied that to the tops of my cheekbones, my nose, and my chin, and then I’m also taking just a little bit on this teeny, tiny brush and adding that into the inner corners of the eyes.
Then, it’s time for the lips. I’m using this lipliner from Make Up For Ever, and it is the number 12.
It’s really close to the actual lipstick, and I’m just lining my lips with this–I’m not doing anything too crazy–then, I’m going to be using “Birthday Suit.” “Birthday Suit” is the one that is a full-coverage lipstick, and this is another one that’s kind of more out of my comfort zone because usually, I think browns look beautiful on everyone else and not really on myself, but I really enjoyed this shade, especially with this color we have on our lids.
