Focus On is a work in progress. Have you ever talked yourself out of buying a product because the color was too odd, and you wondered how often you would really be able to use it? Or, you know those colors you LOVE because of some hidden versatility that you never imagined when you bought it? I do that ALL of the time. In the interests of loving what I HAVE, and learning its limitations, rather than relying on the influx of new colors, I will be doing this post every Saturday, focusing on a new color from my collection, with examples of past work, ideas for other uses. Please feel free to suggest colors you wish to see, or uses for the ones listed, or let me know what your favorites are for future posts
On recommendation from Pumpkincat210, today’s color is Club. It’s a rich, chocolate-y brown with a vibrant teal shimmer and a hint of mossy green. I’ve seen some similar tones from other companies-because it’s very versatile. Bare Minerals Bon Bon has a slightly more prominent shimmer, and Urban Decay Misdemeanor is a paler gray base.
Update-Whoops! Forgot to post a swatch first!
This look demonstrates two points. Applied wet, Club takes on a lovely pine color that makes a superb eyeliner. Also, orange and corals can make the hint of green come out, even over a neutral primer.
