When Studio Gear Cosmetics asked to collaborate, I jumped on the chance to be in a partnership with them. Their main goal for SGC is staying true to the concept that every woman deserves professional, high quality cosmetics at a reasonable price, which is a mantra that every beauty lover can get behind. 

Studio Gear Cosmetics sent over their Holiday Smokey Eye Palette, and I absolutely believe that it is a must-have for not only the holidays, but throughout the year as well. When I took the palette out of it’s cute covering case, it had step-by-step instructions for creating beautiful smokey eye on the inner lid using the colors from the palette, which was an unexpected, helpful touch. I like knowing that you can follow their guide instead of having to look up a YouTube video for inspiration. The palette comes equipped with four eyeshadow colors and one blush color in a compact small enough to fit in a clutch for touch-ups later on in the evening. Something that I enjoyed even more than all the other features was the fact that the pale and pigment-rich eye shadow and blush left my skin feeling silky smooth and relatively matte. After using the Studio Gear Holiday Smokey Eye Palette, I’m in love. I was able to create a gorgeous smokey eye with a pop of cheek color, and with a wipe of mascara and lipstick I was out the door to an evening filled with good food and good friends.
