Four Ways With Makeup Revolution The Emily Edit The Wants Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been enjoying creating different looks using the Makeup Revolution The Emily Edit The Wants Palette  (you can see my post on the palette here) since I purchased the palette in September 2018.  I thought it would be fun to post some look ideas I have come up with using the palette.  The lighting is a bit different in some of the photos as the weather was very changeable each day, but you can still get some look ideas from the photos.

I have given details on how to re-create the combination under each look item, along with suggestions for cheek and lip products to go with each look.

If you would like some look ideas using particular shades in the palette, or certain types of looks, let me know! I’m really enjoying playing about with it so stay tuned for more combination ideas!

Naturally Sparkly With Inglot 114 Pigment

 

Inglot 114 Pure Pigment Look

Inglot 114 Pure Pigment Look

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been enjoying trying out products from Inglot recently and picked up one of their pure pigments – 114 – to try out.  This pigment really stood out to me, as it contains a gorgeous mix of light blue, green and aqua sparkles. 

The product can give a softer sparkle when patted on dry or yield a high shine glimmer when applied damp with a mixing medium.  I think it’s such a beautiful shade and can’t wait to experiment with more combinations!

Teal and Brown Flying Hummingbird (Using Various Brands)

 

Teal and Brown Flying Hummingbird Look

The fourth look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the Teal and Brown Flying Hummingbird.  There are so many different shades in this bird’s colour scheme – teal, green, bright blue, bright purple, brown, glints of black and white – which I thought would make for a really interesting look.  The look was a challenge for me, as it’s been a while since I’ve attempted to combine such a wide range of colours all just on my eyes! I really like how it turned out and think it is one of my favourite looks in the series.

You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

Robin (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

The third look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the Robin. Robins have a really interesting mix of colours and tones – brown, deep burnished orange and white – and so I thought this would be a fun combination to try out.  I used a slightly more red-based shade to tie in with the stereotype of Robins being ‘red-breasted’, even though they seem to be more orange-based in real life.

Flamingo (Using Too Faced Just Peachy Palette)

The second look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the Flamingo.  When I was browsing photos of flamingos online, I was struck by the variety in the colours of these birds.  The colour schemes seemed to range from cream, peach, coral, pink and vivid red.  I knew that flamingos could come in different colours but hadn’t realised there was quite so much diversity.  Nice to learn something new!

I chose to base my look around flamingos with white, cream, peach and coral-red feathers, along with black-ish beak tips (see photo below) For this look, I incorporated the white, cream, peach and coral-red on the lid and deep brown/black on the upper lashline.  I also used a bright peachy-coral on the lips to tie in with the bright coral red feathers.

Spotlight on MAC: Autumnal Smoke (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve repurchased MAC Expensive Pink twice as it is such a beautiful duochrome shade with hints of coral, orange and pink.  I’ve used it with a variety of shades and thought I would try it with cranberry and a deep charcoal for a warm, autumnal look.

To complement the look: I used Clinique Cheek Pop in 02 Peach Pop (click here to read more about this product) on the cheeks, MAC Beaming Blush Extra Dimension Skinfinish Highlighter to highlight the cheekbones and MAC Brave lipstick on the lips.

Spotlight on MAC Dusky Greens (Using MAC eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAC Coquette is quite an interesting shade and a relatively new addition to my make-up collection.  Coquette looks grey-ish taupe but can look more olive green, brown or golden, depending on what other shades you use alongside it. 

For this look, I drew out the olive tones in Coquette by combining it with brown and green eyeshadows.
