Bold Green and Canary Yellow (Using Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I felt like wearing a really bold, colourful look and pulled out my Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette for some inspiration.  The UD Full Spectrum Palette has lots of bright colours and I decided to concentrate on the green, yellow and blues shades.

To complement the look I used: Makeup Revolution Spice Blusher Palette (first shade on the top left) and Kiko Glow Fusion Powder Highlighter in 01 Champagne to highlight the cheekbones (click here to read more about the Kiko highlighter).

Hot Magenta and Black (Using Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve really been enjoying dipping back into palettes that I purchased a while ago (from Urban Decay, Kat Von D and Too Faced) as it can be so easy to get sidetracked by all the new releases.  I really love the bold pops of colour and smokier tones in the Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette and came up with this magenta and black eyeshadow combination.

To complement the look I used: MAC Blusher in Melba (matte peach) and MAC Huggable Lip Colour in Fresh and Frisky (light coral-peach).

Spotlight on MAC: Aqua and Lime (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aquadisiac is such a beautiful, lustre finish aqua colour and one of my long-time favourite eyeshadows from MAC.  This particular eyeshadow is incredibly pigmented, so only a little is needed on a brush for high impact colour.  For this look, I used Aquadisiac alongside Lucky Green eyeshadow, which is another favourite of mine.

To complement the look: I used Kiko Baked Blush in Dreaming Coral on the cheeks (you can read my post and see swatches of this product here), Kiko Glow Fusion Powder Highlighter in 01 Champagne to highlight my cheekbones (you can read my post on this product here) and MAC Huggable Lipcolour Lipstick in Origami Orange on my lips.

Rich Cocoa (Using Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love & Cocoa is a beautifully rich, metallic chocolate brown shade from the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette).  I couldn’t resist trying it out on the lid alongside Holla For a Dolla in the crease and Famous on the inner lid.

I used the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette) to create this quick and easy go-with-anything neutral eye combination.  I wore this look with a red lipstick but it would go just as well with nudes, pinks, corals or deeper shades.

Spotlight on MAC: Vivid Coral and Purple (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this look, I used peachy-coral, copper and plum MAC eyeshadows on the lid, followed by a slick of NYX Vivid Brights Coloured Liquid Liner in Vivid Violet along the upper lashline (you can read more on this product here).  I really love how the purple liner contrasts and ‘pops out’ against the peach and copper tones on the lid.

To complement the look: I used  Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer in Sweet Tea (click here to read more about this product), Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Sparkling Bellini (click here to read more about this product) and Loreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in 464 Color Hype.

All Out Blue (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I thought it would be fun to use various shades of blue eyeshadow from MAC to kickstart my new ‘Spotlight on MAC’ series.  You can read more about the ‘Spotlight on MAC’ series here.

Some of the shades are from the permanent range, whilst a couple are from past limited edition collections.  I’ve given suggestions for permanent shades you can use in place of the limited edition ones, in case you don’t have them.

To complement the look:  I used Kiko Marmoreal Biscuit Baked Blush (you can read more about this product here) on my cheeks and Bare Minerals Gen Nude Lipstick in Nudist on the lips.

Berry, Peach and Lime Pop (Using Kat Von D Saints and Sinners Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I haven’t yet played around with Rosary from the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette and was keen to try it out.  For this look, I used it alongside Sacred Heart (a peachy-coral shade) and Exodus (a light acid green) to create a soft, colourful effect on the eyes.  I really like how Exodus (the lime green shade) pops out in the inner part of the lid.

I really love the bright blue (Ministry) and the lime shade (Exodus) from the Kat Von D Saint and Sinners Eyeshadow Palette (click here to read about this product, see photos and view swatches) and wanted to see what they looked like together.  I like how the lime green pops out from the middle of the lid when the eyes are closed.

To complement the look: I used Benefit Galifornia (click here to read more about this product) on the cheeks, Makeup Revolution Highlighter in Golden Lights (bright light white-gold) to highlight the tops of my cheekbones and MAC Shanghai Spice (creamy peachy-nude) on the lips.
