Who would have ever believed that highlighting flaws, faking skin texture, and artificially mussing up brows would be a makeup trend? The “Boy Beat” has been going around Instagram and the beauty community for a few weeks now, so I thought I’d give it a shot myself.
Khaki and olive green tones are so flattering on a spread of complexions. If you’re like me and love a good neutral look, the green-based neutral color can really add a twist to an otherwise boring color palette.

I scored the Kaleidoscope Dreams eyeshadow palette and Beauty Beam highlighting palette for 50% off at my Sephora. After both watching Youtubers rave about the shadows and seeing beautiful swatches on all of my feeds, I decided that the collab lived up to my non-neutral palette standards.
