As a September baby, myself – I’m biased – but sapphire is my favorite of all gemstones. Blues have always held a close bond to me. Sapphire stands for wisdom and royalty. This jewel is full of history, and is involved in many different religious folklore, claiming it as a sacred stone – a gem of gems. I was really excited to create a look with the Huda Beauty Sapphire Obsessions Palette because blues are not only vibrant but they make a statement. And, since I felt a personal attachment to the palette, it was all the more fun.
Reds and pinks are not often seen as wearable on the eyes, but I’m here to tell you that if you do the correct placement, you, also, can pull it off! Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions Palette is not only stunning but represents divine creativity, which totally gives you the boost to try it out for yourself! The ruby stone also is said to boost self-esteem, intuition, and self wisdom. Shall we take a look at this symbol of true love, fortune, and loyalty?
What I have learned about eyeshadow placement is that mattes generally work in the crease. Of course, you can get creative and try out shimmers, and that’s what’s amazing about makeup – it is an art, and you can do what you like! To create this #EOTD, the deepest matte was used in the crease and under the lash line. The lightest matte and the peachy matte (which is about one shade darker) was used all over the lid with the rose gold placed in the center and inner corner.
Did you know that the most valuable topaz is the yellow-orange one? It is called the imperial topaz, and topaz is the stone of peace, spirituality, and loyalty. This palette is rich and stunning and will definitely have you feeling regal. If you missed it, I will be sharing each Huda Beauty “Birth Stone” Obsessions Palette! Yesterday, I shared the Emerald Obsessions palette. Let’s get to the beautiful and royal Topaz Obsessions Palette, shall we?
Monochromatic makeup is one of my favorite trends right now. This trend gives you the pass to wear one color in all different hues, so the Huda Beauty Obsessions palettes (which come in 5 shades) were a must have for me. I’m going to post all five palettes in their own dedicated post because I want to share the #EOTD, the swatches, and discuss how I felt about each color story. Emeralds stand for “Stone of Successful Love”, which brings freshness and vitality to the spirit while soothing the heart. Instead of envy, it inspires and embodies unity, infinite patience, and compassion.
