“Steal The Look” is a new app for your phone from Wet n Wild that allows you to upload an image of your choice, and select a lip, lid, and crease colour. It then matches those colours to Wet n Wild products (I find it works best if you zoom in to get the most colour-accurate match) so you can replicate the look at home for just dollars. Seriously, dollars. Wet N Wild is one of the most affordable brands out there.
For my “Steal The Look” I went with a photo of the always-stunning Scarlett Johansson wearing some gorgeous purple eye shadow and a nude lip. I didn’t have the exact Wet n Wild products recommended by the app, but I had enough of a selection to make it work. Note: I am not a makeup artist! The main focus of this look was the purple shadow, so of course I had to use the feature Wet n Wild Petal Pusher Palette.
I started off with a layer of the Wet n Wild Intuitive Blend Shade Adjusting Foundation + Primer in Light* which is a thin white liquid with beads in it that burst open when you apply pressure, tinting the product. It’s honestly pretty fun to do, but the foundation itself doesn’t have as many beads as I expected, so you are definitely getting a light coverage product. I feel like I prefer this product for the fun aspect more than the product itself, but it would make a good first foundation to gift a teenager.
I also used a coat of Wet n Wild Megaclear Mascara* on my always unruly brows. The product was okay, it definitely wasn’t crunchy which is my major problem with brow gels, but it also didn’t have as strong a hold as I prefer.
The base of my “Steal The Look” featuring Wet n Wild Petal Pusher Palette was actually the Wet n Wild Perfect Pair Eye Wand in Lilac Smoke*, which features a cream eyeshadow on one end (which I applied all over my lid) and an eyeliner on the other. The eyeshadow is a sheer, shimmery pale pink/lavender that is quite hard and definitely not easy to apply directly to the lid, while the eyeliner doesn’t have the level of black pigmentation I was hoping for, but does work well if you want a more subtle look.
Of course this look is all about the eyeshadow, and Wet N Wild makes some amazing palettes for affordable prices, and the Wet n Wild Petal Pusher Palette* is one of them. There are some shades that are a little more difficult to apply, but my personal favourite is the browbone highlight on the right side, which I used on my inner corner.
I used the left side brow bone from the Wet n Wild Petal Pusher Palette on my brow bone, which is subtle but has a purple-blue shift to it that’s really nice. Then I used the left eyelid shade all over my lid, it’s another one of my favourites as it has a lovely gold shimmer to it. I darkened up my crease with the left-side dark purple crease shade, and added a bit of the definer shade as well. I used the left side sparkly definer along my lower lash line, along with a hint of the crease shade because the definer wasn’t quite as opaque. Then I blended, and that was it!
I coated my lashes with the Wet n Wild Mega Impact Mascara* which has a natural bristle wand that is quite easy to use and helps add a touch of volume with one coat. Plus, it’s hard to lose in packaging that bright!
The final touch for my “Steal The Look” was the lips, and I had to try one of the lip crayons. I didn’t have the one the app recommended, but I think the Wet n Wild Balm Stain in Pinky Promise* was actually an even better fit. It looks quite pink in the swatch, but it’s sheer enough that my natural lip colour shows through a bit. It’s also very comfortable to wear and easy to apply, definitely more of a balm than a stain with this shade.
