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.

Urban Decay Thunderbird Eyeshadow: Quick Smokey Eyes in a Flash

 

Urban Decay Thunderbird Eyeshadow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Urban Decay Thunderbird eyeshadow is one of my favourite shades from the brand and was added to Urban Decay’s line-up of permanent single eyeshadows in 2017.

The tone of this shade makes it a go-to for me whenever I want to create a quick, smokey look.  I enjoy combining various colours but sometimes it is just nice to use one or two singles for a look with minimal fuss.

I haven’t seen folk talking about this eyeshadow, so I thought I would put a post together for those of you who love smokey eyes and want an easy way to get them with minimal fuss!

Smouldering Silver and Purple (Using Kat Von D Saints and Sinners Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was really eager to play with the deeper, smouldering tones in the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette (you can read more about the palette here)  and came up with this smokey look.  I used Sacred Heart, a shimmery peachy-coral shade, to blend out the crease and add some warmth to the look.

To complement the look: I used Kiko Baked Blush in Marmoreal Biscuit (you can read more about this product here) on the cheeks and Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipstick in Devotion (you can read more about this product here) on the lips.

Black and Gold (Using Urban Decay XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to do something different in terms of eyeshadow placement and colour combinations and came up with this look.  I used bright gold and black from the Urban Decay Vice XX Ltd Reloaded Palette to create a strong, contrasting effect on the eyes.  The black is meant to be very defined in this look, which is why I haven’t blended it out or softened the edges. 

To complement the look: I used The Balm Greatest Hits Volume 2 In The Balm of Your Hand Palette for bronzer, brusher and highlighter.  I finished off the look with MAC Syrup on the lips.

Face of the Day: Adapted ‘Son of a Peach’ Look (Using The Too Faced Sugar Peach Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last week, I uploaded a post featuring the new Too Faced Sugar Peach Palette (you can see the post here).  I’ve been enjoying using the palette and trying the shades out in different ways.

For the look above, I used the ‘How to Glamour Guide’ that came with the palette and followed the steps for the ‘Son of a Peach’ look.  I adapted the look slightly to suit my own make-up style and preferences.

I think that this look can go with so many different types of lip colours.  I used the Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipstick in Breakfast Club, which is a vibrant, orange-red shade, in the photos above.  Click here to read more and see swatches of the Peach Kiss Lipsticks!

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.

Too Faced Sugar Peach Wet And Dry Face & Eye Palette

 

Too Faced Sugar Peach Wet and Dry Face & Eye Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last week, I was browsing in Debenhams and picked up the Too Faced Sugar Peach Wet and Dry Face & Eye Palette.  The palette didn’t really stand out to me online but in person, it looked so beautiful! I’ve been playing around with it and think it is amazing!

I love the versatility, scent and glowy, wide-awake look that this palette gives to the eyes, cheeks and face.  The palette also looks – and feels – so luxurious, special and classy, making it a real treat to use.

I think that the Too Faced Sugar Sweet Palette is definitely worth a look if you want a daily palette to make your whole face quickly appear brighter, glowy and healthy!

NYX Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette

 

NYX Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette in Hooked on Glow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some time ago, I posted a sneak peek of the NYX Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Hooked on Glow’ (you can see the post here).  The palette really caught my eye due to the beautiful mix of peach, gold and brown shades in various finishes and tones.

I’ve been using the palette for quite a while now and think it is amazing! The range of colours, finishes and tones makes the palette extremely versatile, whether you want to create easy daily looks or more complex combinations. The eyeshadows are beautifully pigmented, smooth and last well on the lids.  Win-win for me!

Spotlight on MAC: Going for Green (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Green is one of my favourite colours to wear, both in terms of eyeshadow and clothing.  I thought I would play about with some MAC green eyeshadows and came up with this green combination.

To complement the look: I used Benefit Rockateur blusher on the cheeks and MAC Fresh and Frisky Huggable Lipcolour on the lips.

Spotlight on MAC: MAC Satin Taupe Eyeshadow

 

MAC Satin Taupe eyeshadow

Combination using MAC Satin Taupe (more details below!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I first started getting into MAC make-up, Satin Taupe had cult status amongst make-up bloggers and users.  The shade was regularly mentioned as must-have, due to its ability to look amazing on the lid all on its own or when combined with other eyeshadows.  No matter how much time has passed, MAC Satin Taupe is still an eyeshadow I find myself reaching for and one that continues to be a staple in my make-up collection.
