BH Cosmetics Forever Nude & Forever Glam // 2 Palettes - 2 Looks

BH Cosmetics is a brand I've always admired and trusted. From my beginning days of watching YouTube beauty videos, I've always been in awe of the pigmentation and beauty of their palettes. When I received their 'Forever Nude' and 'Forever Glam' palettes, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to finally start featuring beauty looks on my blog. Up until this point, I've done basically only product reviews, and I thought it would be fun to show you a couple of looks using their amazingly versatile palettes.

As soon as I laid eyes on the BH Cosmetics Forever Nude Palette, I knew it was a match made in heaven. We all know I love my nudes. What makes the Forever Nude palette different from all of the other nude palettes I own, is that this particular palette features not only neutral eyeshadows, but neutral blushes, lip colors, and a highlighter. It's literally a one stop shop for creating everyday make-up looks.

On a daily basis, I like to keep my make-up pretty light. Even though I'm usually wearing tons of make-up, I like to give the impression that it was effortless. For the first look, I began by moisturizing, priming, and then applying a BB cream all over my face. I wanted to create a clean, fresh base before using the colors from the palette. For the eyes, I began by using the cream colored eyeshadow as a base. I then put the pink shade all over the lid and used the mauve shade in the crease. I really wanted it to look as clean as possible, so I made sure to blend really well. I finished the eyes off by applying a few coats of my favorite mascara. For the cheeks, I used the pink blush and lightly dusted it on the apples of my cheeks for that perfect flush. Lastly, I mixed both lip colors to create a natural pop of color.

I was most excited to create a look using the BH Cosmetics Forever Glam Palette because it's a bit out of my comfort zone, and I was looking forward to exploring a more glamorous look. Similarly to the Forever Nude palette, the Forever Glam palette includes six eyeshadows, two blushes, two lip colors, and a highlighter. However, these two palettes couldn't be any less similar. The Forever Glam palette features vibrant pops of color that you can't help but get hypnotized by.

As I mentioned, I tend to stick to neutral shades, so for this look I really wanted to do a 180 and layer on the color. I began by moisturizing and priming like I did for the first look, but this time I opted for a full coverage foundation instead of a BB cream. I consider this look more nighttime, party appropriate, so I felt foundation was the way to go. After applying my foundation, I applied the copper shade to my lower lid. Next I applied the purple shade all over the lid, and the glittery navy blue to the crease. After blending, I wet my shadow brush, and went back over the lid with the purple shade. I then added black eyeliner to my lower lash line, and piled on the mascara. For cheeks, I applied the shimmery peach blush, and for lips I went for hot pink. I never would have imagined I'd feel so comfortable with such vibrant, bold shades..but I did!
