FOTD: Aquamarine and Purple (Using Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the shimmery aqua tone of Make Magic in the Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette (you can read more about this palette here) and thought it would look beautiful on the lids alongside Heart and Harmony.  I really love how the shades blended together in this look.  I used Heart (a matte pink) in the crease and it created a blue-ish shade where the edges met Make Magic.  This step really added extra dimension to the look.

A couple of months ago, I attended a MAC Masterclass event focusing on ‘Ageless Beauty’.  You can read my first post providing background on the event here.

This particular post focuses on the content covered in the Masterclass.  The Masterclass was called ‘Ageless Beauty’, with the focus on achieving beautiful skin at all ages.  The post gives more details on the class content, skin care routine, day look and evening look.

I have written a series of posts about the event which I will be posting on the site.  Each part focuses on a specific aspect, so you can either read them all or go to the one that you are specifically interested in.  Part One (read more here) provides Background to the Masterclass (what is a MAC Masterclass, cost and booking, structure, goodie bag, after the event).  Part Two (this post) covers the Masterclass Content and Look Overview (skin care, day time look, evening look).  Part Three will provide details on the tips and techniques I learned from the event.

Four Ways With Makeup Revolution The Emily Edit The Wants Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been enjoying creating different looks using the Makeup Revolution The Emily Edit The Wants Palette  (you can see my post on the palette here) since I purchased the palette in September 2018.  I thought it would be fun to post some look ideas I have come up with using the palette.  The lighting is a bit different in some of the photos as the weather was very changeable each day, but you can still get some look ideas from the photos.

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!

Naturally Sparkly With Inglot 114 Pigment

 

Inglot 114 Pure Pigment Look

Inglot 114 Pure Pigment Look

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been enjoying trying out products from Inglot recently and picked up one of their pure pigments – 114 – to try out.  This pigment really stood out to me, as it contains a gorgeous mix of light blue, green and aqua sparkles. 

The product can give a softer sparkle when patted on dry or yield a high shine glimmer when applied damp with a mixing medium.  I think it’s such a beautiful shade and can’t wait to experiment with more combinations!

Graphic Pink and Teal Eye (Using Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette)

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette Look

Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette Look

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really enjoyed watching the recent BBC Three series ‘Glow Up’ (you can read more about the series on the BBC site here) and it inspired me to try something different on my eyes.  I thought it would be fun to play with contrasting colours and came up with this graphic, winged eyeshadow look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette (you can see my post on this palette here).  The eyes are very bold, so I chose to keep things very simple in terms of the cheek and lip colours I used (you can find out what shades I used and see a couple of full face shots below).

You can find more ideas for eyeshadow combinations using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette on the site here.

MAC Strobe Cream in Gold Lite

 

MAC Strobe Cream in Gold Lite

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I recently purchased MAC Strobe Cream in Gold Lite after seeing the product used as part of a MAC Masterclass event (you can read more about the event here).  I thought it looked – and sounded like – an extremely versatile product when I saw it being showcased at the event.   I’ve read so much about this product being amazing in magazines and online, so I thought it would be fun to try it out myself.

I’m so pleased I decided to try it out as I have been enjoying using it so much! This product gives my face a subtle ‘lit from within’, glow, making it look incredibly healthy and naturally glowy.

The cream adds in a little extra moisture to my skin and absorbs quickly to leave a non-greasy, smooth, glowy finish. I think it is a great option for anyone who wants to add some extra radiance and moisture to their face without having any tackiness or too much dewiness.

There are five shades of Strobe Cream available, as well as a mini version of one shade (Pink Lite). The range of shades means you can choose whichever one you prefer or one which works well with your skin tone.
