Harry Potter Houses: Hufflepuff

If you haven't figured it out already by the name I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, I've read all the books several times and after seeing the last movie I really wanted to do some HP inspired makeup. So I'm going to do a series of looks for the four houses starting with Hufflepuff.

Hufflepuffs colors is yellow and black but I also wanted the makeup to reflect the traits of the houses and Hufflepuffs is described as valuing hard work, patience, loyalty, and fair play. So I didn't want to do anything to over the top and I ended up doing a black liquid eyeliner with some yellow on the lid.

Purple Lust

Another one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes is the Wet 'n Wild Color Icon Palette in Lust. It has six purple shades (several who is supposed to be good MAC dupes.)

On the plus side all the color have fairly good pigmentation and there are three matte shadows as well as three shimmery and all the colors complement each other very well.

On the negative side the shadows can apply a little patchy if you don't use a base, also the matte shadows tends to not have quite as good pigmentation as the shimmery ones.

All in all I think this is a really good palette especially for the price. So if your on a budget or you just want some more purple eyeshadow I would absolutely recommend this.
