HNNNNNNNNNNG. The colors are much more crisp with this lighting setup! I'm giddy. I've already noticed a color difference in some shadows. For example, the Bronze Sand eyeshadow in natural light looks a bit pinker, but applied on my lids and photographed in this light it appears more like a light, matte bronze. It reminds me of a softer, lighter version of Chickadee from Makeup Geek. The continuous light is incandescent, but the white balance setting counters it relatively well and I do minor color correction on the photos after shooting them. I'm finessing my process.
Bronze Sand is an awesome neutral, though I find it chalky. It's a bummer that Madison Street Beauty closed their shop. I use this color frequently on myself and on my clients (it's popular for brides). I added the Garnet liner because I wanted to match my shirt in some capacity. Plus, sometimes you just add eyeliner when you weren't planning on it. I love how it gives a soft, warm glow to the eye. It's a great default color if you're not sure what to pick that day. Neutrals are always a safe bet!
Opted for lip balm because chapped everything weather is nigh and my lips are already suffering. Doesn't help that I've been gnawing on the flaky pieces like some crazed self-cannibalizing weirdo.
