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.

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.

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.

I’ve been really enjoying creating various eyeshadow combinations using the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette (you can see my post on the palette here).  I just love this palette!

I thought it would be fun to post four different combination ideas using the Norvina Palette.  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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lime Ministry (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
