Red Rainbow (Using Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette)

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around RED, the first colour in the rainbow.  I always gravitate towards yellows or oranges when using red eyeshadows, so this time, I combined the red with hot pink, lime green and blackened-brown.  The tones I used are a bit more subtle, so you could use similar shades which are bolder for an amp-ed up version of the look.  You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

The Rainbow Series includes looks based around each of the colours of the rainbow.  You can read about the series and view more posts here.

Tip: I’m using the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette for all of the looks but you can substitute in eyeshadows from any brand.  The NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette in ‘Brights’ is a great dupe for the Urban Decay Full Spectrum and cheaper (£16 instead of £43).  You can view the NYX Palette here.

I recently posted an article on Urban Decay Thunderbird eyeshadow (you can read more, see photos and swatches of this product here) and wanted to share a look using this product.  I used black eyeshadow, a shimmery light peachy-brown eyeshadow and a little black eye liner to add extra smokiness to the look.

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.

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.
