Pink and Blue Eye Look

Hello readers! So you guys may or may not know that I'm really into pressing my indie eyeshadows. I actually don't hate them in their loose form or anything but I find that there are a lot of benefits to pressing my shadows. Pressing them is more storage efficient and travel friendly. I save time by not having to unscrewed 5 jars in the morning. I often discover that pressing shades help with pigmentation too (especially Femme Fatale eyeshadows, they are like butta now). I've managed to press a good amount of my collection thus far and my most recent endeavor has been pressing nearly all of my Darling Girl shadows into a convenient palette. I'm just 2 shadows short (!!) of pressing a full palette. I have a pressing tutorial and pressing collection post in the works for those of you who are interested in learning how to press for yourself. 

Now getting back to today's post, most of the shadows showcased below are some recent additions to my pressed palette. In the pan, Taystee Girl looked like a pretty baby blue with pink iridescence. When placed on the eye, TG transforms into nearly a solid ballerina pink because of the strong duochrome. This unintentionally turned it into a Cotton Candy inspired look! Or a baby shower look, whichever you prefer. Taystee Girl is a perfect example of how duochromatic shifts can come out even stronger when pressed.
