I dipped into my Colour Pop shadows and whoa boy! You just need to test out one of them and you’ll know what I’m talking about. I also used my NYX colored mascara for my brow, it takes about 3 coats to cover all of my brow. If you have blonde or thinner brows it won’t take as many coats.
As a side note, I did apply the shadows with a primer. I never wear eyeshadow without a primer so these don’t get any different treatment.

Rules: Take a picture of the sim that’s normally associated with your blog (your legacy founder/lead character in your story etc.), now take away all their cc (except their hair, eyebrows, and skin color), then do a before and after picture.
Notes: I did a girls edition (or at least the more relevant girls that I have). Fenix looks like god either way and tbh for the sake of this I gave her a little more makeup than usual because I normally don’t have her wear lipstick. With Ani I’m very happy I did this because I didn’t realize how much I actually LOVE her with a complete bare face. She looks so different and kind of like this one girl I wanted to model her after.. so she might just wear some tiny lashes from now on and call it a day because I’m into it. And finally there’s Jaide.. she wears the most in game makeup because I spent the least amount of time on her custom skin. I wish I could get her lips the same texture as the one she wears in game.. also her eyes look so different without eyeshadow lol.
P.S. If you did this already then please disregard.. and if I didn’t tag you it’s because I already seen you do it ^_^
Here’s part three because everyone needs three chapters in 24 hours. There’s more angst here >:)
There will be another part after this I promise.
Roman had accused him of hating the others. How could he ever hate them? He loved Roman. Not that he would ever say anything. Not that Roman would ever feel the same. Why would he. Roman was a literal prince and he was just Anxiety. Just the monster that kept Thomas up at night, bothering him with ideas of things in closets and under the bed when he was the real monster. All he ever did was ruin everyone’s day.
Stupid foolish Roman. Of course Anxiety would get confused. Nobody had ever shown him even the slightest amount of care. A random gift out on nowhere? Of course he didn’t believe it. He himself had even joked about ‘slaying the monster.’ The monster being Anxiety of course. How had he never thought about how that might feel from Anxiety’s point of view.
The moment Roman got inside his room he shut the door and flopped into his bed, flying back through every memory where he had cast Anxiety aside and claimed all the glory for himself. How could he have done that? What sort of prince was he, to hurt those he claimed to defend?
So I have personally never checked out nor purchased anything from BH Cosmetics before. I had seen a lot of youtubers using their 120 palettes but they weren’t really anything that caught my attention (I still liked them but I didn’t feel the need to buy them as soon as I saw them). But then I happened to watch a new video (mind you this was a little while ago when it first came out) posted by Xsparkage talking about the Galaxy Chic palette and I instantly fell in love with it!
The palette itself comes in a cardboard packaging with a magnetic closure and a total of 18 baked eyeshadows. The eyeshadows themselves are actually a lot bigger than expected, they’re a little larger than an american quarter coin so you get a really good amount of product. I just love the theme behind this palette (that’s honestly what made me fall in love with it) and because they’re baked eyeshadows, the different colored veining in them makes them look like actual planets. Now onto the swatches!
These were applied on top of a Nars primer to show best color pay off when applied dry:
Sun is a bright gold with a reddish undertone
Jupiteris a bright reddish pink
Prometheus is a light red with a slight pink undertone
Aphrodite is a deep, rusted red color, very pretty shade
Milky Way is a light, pale pinkish purple, works great as an inner corner highlight
Cosmic is similar to Milky Way but is 1 shade darker and leans more purple
Saturn is a pale gold with a slight red undertone, it’s similar to Sun but a lot lighter
Venus is a gorgeous bright orange, definitely a favorite of mine
Meteor is a light, pale baby blue, also makes a great inner corner highlight
Comet is a light blue shade with a slight green undertone
Earth is a light sky blue
Neptune is a deep navy blue and is the darkest shade in this palette
Mercury is a light pinky brown
Mars is a deep reddish brown
Asteroid is a deep blue toned brown
Uranus is a bright, pale baby blue shade, it’s similar to Meteor but is a shade lighter
Moonis a lovely pale gray
Eclipse is a dark, purple toned gray, this is my favorite shade in the whole palette
All these shades have a very lovely color payoff to them and when applied wet, the color shows up even more vivid! The great thing about baked eyeshadows is that you can apply them wet without ruining the eyeshadow itself. Normal pressed shadows (if you try to use them wet) will form a hard crust on the surface that you have to scrape off thus ruining the eyeshadow and wasting product; that won’t happen with these so that’s a huge plus! If you’re not a huge fan of shimmery eyeshadows, you probably will not like this palette; there is not a single matte shadow here. And the shadows are also a little more fragile than normal pressed shadows, but the great thing about that is if one gets broken by accident, just pour a little water over it, press it down, and it’s fixed (it basically turns into wet sand when water is poured on it so it’s easy to mold broken pieces back into place)! I really love the theme of this palette and I think the eyeshadow shades are great. This palette is also suuuuper cheap and afforable as well! Perfect for any alien girl or space lover alike, definitely give it a try! :)

The thermometer landed with a soft thud on your bed before bouncing off and landing onto the floor noisily. Your head was hurting too much and every movement just seemed to made it worst, so you left it to lie on the floor as you crawled under the warm covers and picked up your phone.
‘I’m sick.’ You typed.
But he might worry..
You deleted it.
‘You don’t have to come over later.’
But you miss him..
You deleted it again and groaned. Why out of all the days, no, weeks of not seeing Hanbin, it had to be today, the day he returns from tour, that your immune system decide to fail you? You sighed at the thought, letting your hand fall onto the mattress and the phone roll out of your grasp.
Finally, after a good hour of contemplation, hesitation and more retyping of texts, you eventually decided to let him come over as planned and just try to keep a distance from him. You had to, you couldn’t afford to let your superstar boyfriend fall sick.
As usual, it was almost midnight by the time your doorbell rang. You cleared your throat and ran your hand through your unruly hair; a result of rolling around on the bed all day, before opening the door.
You had everything planned out in your head; you’d open the door, and then avoid his kiss by hugging him immediately, but not long enough for him to realize how much warmer your body temperature was. There, not a single problem at all! That was what you had thought an hour ago, before Hanbin arrived.
But now that you see him standing right outside your apartment, right in front of you, it was as though you weren’t even sick.
He was wearing a white tee with cuffed sleeves and his favorite pair of ripped denim jeans. His dark brown hair was let down, messy but soft and free from all the hairsprays which normally held it up. And he was looking down at you with that freaking smile that reveals his dimples on each side of his pale cheeks. You had always loved his bare face, without all that eyeshadow and drawn brows, though honestly it didn’t differ much because of his own good looks, apart from a few dark spots on his skin.
Damn it, why was your heart beating so fast? It had only been like what? Three weeks, since you last saw him. Get a grip, you told yourself silently as you stepped aside to let him come in after taking off his Converse sneakers.
“Hi,” you said, surprising yourself because it came out as a whisper, probably because you were sick and probably also because of Hanbin’s effect on you.
“Why are you wearing my hoodie?” He looked at you and laughed at the sight of his grey GAP hoodie oversized on you, the sleeves drowning your hands.
“I just missed your scent,” you muttered as you turn to shut the door. When you turned around, you were faced with Hanbin’s chest before he wrapped his arms around your waist and pulled you toward his body. “I missed your touchiness too,” you looked up at him and laughed, running your hands up his toned arms.
“Aish, I had to touch Bobby hyung because you weren’t there,” your boyfriend complained and sighed.
“It wasn’t like you or he minded,” you replied and he clicked his tongue, pretending to be offended by what you said but smiled again once you laughed.
“I missed you.” He pulled you closer against his body and it was at this point of time did you finally remember your long failed and forgotten plan.
“Me too.” You said and planted a chaste kiss on Hanbin’s lips, taking him by surprise not because of how sudden it was but because of how short it lasted. But before he could lean in and kiss you again, you got out of his embrace quickly and made your way to the kitchen.
“What.. That’s all?”
It was past midnight now and it was starting to become really hard to cover up your fever, which had worsened.
You were lying on the couch with your legs on Hanbin’s lap as he sat up, accompanying him to catch up on the episodes of the drama he had missed while he was touring. It took all your willpower to reject his offer of cuddling up against him. “It’s more comfortable for me like this, since we’re going to be watching like eight episodes.” That’s what you told him, but it really wasn’t. Your back was starting to ache from lying against the hard hand rest of the couch, adding to your throbbing headache. You also felt colder as the drama progressed, heck, you weren’t even watching the drama anymore.
You rubbed your arms through the hoodie, a futile attempt to warm yourself as you watched Hanbin munch on his sour cream Pringles. He looked like a kid - a really handsome kid, you thought, looking at his side profile and how his prominent jawline showed as he chewed, eyes glued attentively to the television.
“Ah…” he peeked into the long green can after his hands reached in to find out that he had already finished everything, and then turned to look at you disappointedly. Normally you would have laughed and go fetch him another can, but this time you only managed to smile back at his adorable face.
“Babe, are you okay?” Hanbin’s face slackened for a moment before his brows furrowed and his eyes darted at you with concern. “You’re pale.” The empty Pringles can was immediately put aside and he wiped his hands before touching your legs with them.
“Why are you so hot?” Now he had his body turned towards you and his hands were running up and down the sides of your calves. “Are you unwell?”
You couldn’t help but smile, seeing his worried self bombarding you with all these questions. It was comforting to know that he cares so much.
“A little.” You withdrew your legs from his lap and sat up.
“How much is a little? And since when?” He shifted closer to you, causing you to move away.
“Morning. Please don’t come too close,” you said and looked at him apologetically. Now that you were sitting up, you felt even more drowsy and you could also feel the fatigue starting to creep up on you.
“Why didn’t you tell me earlier?” Hanbin had completely ignored what you said and was already right beside you when you heard his soft voice.
“I didn’t want you to worry.”
“But now I’m worrying.” You looked up at him and he still looked concerned, but sterner. Sometimes he scared you, his face and stoic expressions which he often showed without realizing, especially when he’s deep in his thoughts or annoyed.
“Sorry.” You ran your hand through your hair nervously, trying to not look nervous, before turning to look at him again. But unexpectedly, Hanbin laughed and kissed the side of your head.
“It’s okay if you’re this cute whenever you’re sick,” he replied as he continued laughing at you, causing you to slap his thigh lightly.
“But seriously, we can’t just sit here when you’re sick. I’ll drive you to the hospital.”
Upon hearing what he said, you looked at his serious expression and laughed this time. “Hanbin, you don’t have a driving license nor a car.”
Then you watched him trying to keep his straight face for a while, before he burst out laughing. “Yah, I just wanted to sound more like a man.” He ran his hand through the ends of your hair lovingly as he said that.
“Okay but we seriously need to get you there, I’ll call a cab,” he added after touching your forehead and neck, feeling how hot your temperature was now. You sighed and nodded, you felt bad for troubling him when he finally could get some rest after so much traveling and sleepless nights of practicing.
“Don’t feel bad, jagiya.” He threw his arm around you, stroking your cheek with his thumb as he called for your ride to the hospital.
