Today I thought I’d share four tips for using Tarina Tarantino’s Magic Hour Cream Shadow in Nebula from the Starchild Odyssey Collection (also in the collection, a silver called Starchild and a navy called Meteor Night). It’s available at Sephora for $19, and for the money you get a pretty big pot! It’s a limited edition, but there are also some gorgeous colors (Black Diamond, Purple Velvet, Golden Shadow) in the permanent line. You can still get this one now, which I suggest you do, because all of the Magic Hour Creams are so pretty and versatile.
Nebula looks almost white in its pot when it’s first opened, but when you start to swirl your finger in it a gorgeous purple comes through. It glides on very smoothly, which is why I’m a fan of cream shadows like these. It’s also very sheer, so you can layer and build it up, which makes it perfect for daytime or night. Also, blending with your fingers is a breeze because the warmth of your fingers softens it up.
Ways You Can Wear It
- Use it as a liner! It looks particularly gorgeous with blue eyes, but I’m sure it would look stunning decorating just about any eye color. Also use it to line your top or bottom lashes, or both!
- Wear it as a shadow. One of the more obvious choices but still very pretty. The first layer is sheer, but it builds up to bold! Also, if you want longer lasting color or a bolder punch, start with a purple shadow underneath! I use Of Summer from the Romance collection, but I believe any sheer/pale lavender would look great!
- Use it as a cheek highlighter. Put it at the tops of your cheeks, nose, and chin for a litter glimmer. This color looks very pretty with light pinks and beiges and gives you a very dewy look.
- Use it as a brow highlight. Now this one is different. As stated above it looks lovely with blue eyes, so if you’re doing a purple or blue look and need a highlight, give it a try. It gives a little color without being overbearing!
