Serenity + Scott Makeup Look

Press Sample (the mascara, I bought the rest)
The biggest find for me at The Makeup Show Chicago were items from Serenity + Scott. This relatively new company puts out quality shadows and has some prepacked very attractive palettes.  Fellow blogger Jessika from Polish Insomniac and I went nuts over them and we bought identical palettes! We also had a chance to meet the owners, who not surprisingly are named Serenity and Scott. It was a joy talking with them and learning about their brand, which they obviously put a lot of care and thought into.

So, today Jessika and I are each doing a makeup look using the same general products: The Serenity+Scott Smoky palette, Serenity+Scott Mascara (they gave this to us, we bought the rest), Serenity+Scott tinted brow gel, Serenity+Scott lipstick, and Make Up For Ever HD blush in number 315.

The star of this show really is the palette. Serenity + Scott nine pan palettes are $80, but you get a full size shadow in each pan that is ultra pigmented. There is no particular need for primer with this shadow, although I tend to use primer all the time anyway.  The Smoky palette is gorgeous. Every shade is very wearable for just about any skin tone and the matte black is one of the best I have seen in awhile.

See how pretty it is? I could have taken photos of it all day. I just love looking at it! Serenity + Scott are known in particular for creating makeup for bridal looks, and this palette would be great for that. They also have a separate bridal palette and you can order pans individually from the company to create your own palettes. Individual pans are $8 and an empty palette is also $8, which is quite reasonable, especially given the quality. They are not limited to bridal by any means though and also have some bright colors in their runway palette.

Paired with the palette, I used a tinted brow gel in Copper Auburn and Serenity + Scott Mascara. The brow gel is a nice product that comes in four shades.  The mascara comes in a clear container and you can see that it is full without any sort of false botton, something that Serenity made clear was important to her. So no shortage of product on that! I liked it just fine and it is quite buildable.

While I liked the brow gel and mascara just fine, what I really loved aside from the shadow was the lipstick. This the shade My Favorite ($16), which Scott told me really is his favorite, hence the name! I applied it over a tinted lip pencil and do not remember the brand or shade now, but it was a fairly neutral rose shade and it ever so slightly darkened it in my look, which I liked. This shade is one of those that I think just about anyone could wear.

Jessika and I also each bought Make Up Forever HD blush in shade 315 at the show, so we decided to use that in our looks as well. Here is a swatch.

Here is my finished look. I used a combo of the taupe and mauve type shades on my eyes with a bit of white underneath on the brow bone. I tend to squint when I smile, so it makes showing shadow looks difficult for me, but I also got a couple of  photos looking down to show the shadow a bit better. The photos are done with my iphone, which is not my preference, but hopefully it gets the general look across!

So, there is my Serenity + Scott makeup look. I really can’t recommend them enough. The brand is also cruelty free. You can buy them at the Serenity + Scott website. Now, go see Jessika’s look using the same general products here!
