Acid Green Devil (Using Kat Von D Saints and Sinners Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really fancied trying out Vestment (a deep metallic blackened teal) with Exodus (a light matte acid green) together and came up with this eyeshadow combination.  I added in Devil (a matte orange) into the crease to add some warmth and a punchy twist to the look.

To complement the look, I used Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in ‘Lolita II’ (a medium warm terracotta-chestnut) on the lips and The Balm ‘Balm Springs’ blusher (a matte medium dusty, earthy rose) on the cheeks.  You can read more, see photos and view swatches of Lolita II here.

Golden Relic (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette (click here to read more about this product) to create this quick and easy golden peach combination.  I wanted to create something which looked fresh and bright on the eyes, compared to the smokey, sultry blue combination featured in my first Saint and Sinner look post here.  I used only one brush (the MAC 239) to create this look as well, keeping things nice and simple.

Classic Grey Taupe Eye (Using Kat Von D Saints and Sinners Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really fancied trying out a more neutral combination with the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette (see my post on this palette, including photos and swatches here) and came up with this light greyish-taupe look.

Combination Ideas: This look is classic enough that it can go really well with all sorts of lip colours.  I wore this combination with Too Faced Wham lipstick, a creamy, glimmering berry shade with pink, silver and purple sparkles.  You could also try this eyeshadow with pinks, reds and deeper berry hues.

I recently purchased the new Kat Von D Saint and Sinners Eyeshadow Palette (click here to read about this product, see photos and view swatches) and just couldn’t resist trying out Ministry on the lid.  For this look, I combined it with Stigmata, Crucifix and Relic to create a smokey yet colourful look.

Emerald at Dusk

For this look, I used teal and green eyeshadows to create a fun, colourful spin on the traditional smokey eye.  I really like how teal and green eyeshadows look together.  

Tip: You could add a little lemon yellow eyeshadow in the very inner corners if you want to add even more colourful brightness to the eyes.  Black or deep teal liner along the upper and lower lashline would also add some extra smokiness to the look.

IT Cosmetics: ‘It’s Your Complexion Perfection’ 4 Piece Collection on QVC

QVC UK started selling IT Cosmetics last year and since then, I have been eager to try out some of their products.  As of last week, QVC UK started selling the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream as part of a special 4 piece collection.  I’ve heard a lot of great things about this product (Emilynoel83 loves it), along with the other items in the collection, and so I couldn’t resist ordering it for myself.  The collection was also available last weekend for a ‘Today’s Special Value’ deal of £47.89, rather than £65, as part of QVC UK’s Beauty Weekend.  So I just had to get it!

I thought I’d do a post showing what the collection looks like and giving a quick overview of the products inside.  I’ve just received the set and not yet had a chance to play around with the products.  I  might do a few other posts providing more information on what I think of the products once I’ve used them and more detailed product pictures  (let me know in the comments section if you would like to see these types of posts).

Blue Warmth

For this look, I used coral eyeshadow in the crease of the eye to add some subtle warmth to a bluish-violet combination.  Adding a little blackberry eyeshadow in the outer lid helped tie the coral and blue-violet eyeshadows together and added some extra dimension to the look.

Autumn Colours with Periwinkle Liner

I felt like doing something different with my eye make-up yesterday and came up with this combination.  I added in a slick of pale blue liquid liner along the upper lashline to add an unexpected flash of colour to a peachy-pink, orange and brown eyeshadow look.

Tip: If the blue liner is too much for you, you can just leave it out and stick with the eyeshadow look.  I really liked how the eyeshadow combination looked on its own as well.

Sunset Rainbow (Using Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette)

It’s been a while since I wrote a post (work and life have been very busy recently) and so I wanted to kick-start my writing again with a bold and colourful look.  I used the new UD Full Spectrum Palette, which contains a rainbow array of colourful eyeshadows.

Tip: Lining the eyes with black liner and using lashings of black mascara really helps define the eye when using such bright eyeshadow colours.

Note: I’ll try to write a post on the UD Full Spectrum Palette soon, along with swatches, to give you an idea of what shades the palette contains.  Think bright and colourful, ranging from white, yellow, orange, coral, copper, purple, cranberry, green, blue and black!
