Smudged Cat Eye | Day 4 With the Honest Beauty Get It Together Eyeshadow Palette
Leave it to the cat lady to love a smudged cat eye, hahaha! This is yet another look — I’ll say “inspired by” the tutorial card that comes with the Honest Beauty Get It Together Eyeshadow Palette.
The tutorial suggests using the beige shade all over the lid as a base, but I thought that might look a little weird on me, so I buffed the matte brown shade (Soft Bronze) on top of the beige to define my crease.
Gosh, these shadows blend so well! But that’s just one of the great things about this palette.
Can we talk about lips for a second, because I need to know if anyone else out there has been into tinted lip balms lately? They’re SO MY JAM, which is kinda funny because until recently I’ve been solidly Team Liquid Lipstick for the last few months. My previous lip logic was that if I’m going to wear something on my pout during the pandemic…it had to last long enough under my mask to ensure that I wouldn’t have to keep removing my mask to reapply it.
I know, interesting logic. ?
Turns out tinted balms are a great no-drama/low-effort option, since I can 1) easily apply one without a mirror (doing it right now, as a matter of fact), and 2) remove it just as quickly with a tissue when I’m about to mask up. Plus, hello moisture! (Side note: my lips have been dry lately.)
This sheer plum tinted balm by Origins is called Night Bloom, and it’s low-key epic in terms of moisture. I get old-school Clinique Black Honey vibes from the color because it looks crazy dark in the tube, but it’s just a sheer plummy tint when it’s applied.
Night Bloom pairs really well with mauves, taupes, browns and bronzes, a.k.a. all of the colors in the Honest Beauty Get It Together Palette. It’s also sheer enough to wear with just bare skin and mascara.
In case you’re wondering, it smells and tastes a little minty, but it’s not overwhelming.
Another thing I’ve been into: the look of barely-there blush. MAC Warm Soul is great for this!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. TGIF! ?

You look beautiful, Karen! I need to get the palette!!
I’m not huge on tinted lip balm, but I like the ChapStick Total Hydration Moisture Tint formula, available at Ulta and various grocery and drugstores-it’s comfortable, unflavored as far as I can tell, and has a good, I’m not great at guessing finishes but I’d say semi-sheer?, level of buildable color. So far I’ve only ever worn Merlot, but they have a variety of pinks as well.
I love all the looks you’ve created with this palette, but I think this one is my favorite.
Clinique Black Honey is my go-to this time of year. I still have a ton left so I probably won’t get this one but it’s lovely. I have a freckle on my lips I like, so I’m into sheer lip colors. I work from home, and lip color really helps me look best for video calls.
This is my favorite look so far! I don’t tend to use powder eyeshadow much because eczema, but I bet I could get a similar look with cream shadow.
I feel like Clinique Black Honey has no color!
I’ve always been a huge proponent of sheer moisturising lip products, which tinted lip balm is one of the many possible forms. I have tried quite a bit of products under this category and Origins Blooming Sheer is one of the best formulas. The downside is just that the bullet is very soft and breaks easy but the feel on the lips make up for it I think!
That balm really looks scary dark, I would never even think of wearing that! But it translates beautiful on the skin.
