FOTD: Rose Gold Smokey Eye (Using Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I recently posted this look on Instagram where I used Rose Gold, a beautiful shade from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette (you can see my post on the palette here).  I combined Rose Gold with other brown shades from the palette and some black liner to create this slightly smokey look.

FOTD: Yellow and Coral (Using NYX Swear By It Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I created this look using the NYX Swear By It Eyeshadow Palette (you can see my post, see photos and view swatches of this palette here) some time ago.  My look was inspired by a look I saw Allie Glines create on YouTube.  She based her version on a look created by someone else too (I’m not sure who, unfortunately).

I used similar tones to Allie Glines on the eyes but I chose a coral lipstick instead of the red which she used.  I’m a huge fan of MAC Toying Around Lipstick, which is a beautiful, Amplified finish, medium bright coral shade and thought it would work well with the tones on the eyes.  This particular lipstick shade was limited edition but I think other brands will have similar shades.

I’m planning to post more of the looks I have created using this palette on the site, so stay tuned! You can find looks using this palette on the site here.

FOTD: Subtle Plum Eyes and Bold Lips (Using NYX Swear By It Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really enjoy using the NYX Swear By It Eyeshadow Palette (you can see my post, see photos and view swatches here) but for some reason, I never got round to posting looks I created using the palette.

This particular look uses plum shades from the palette to create some subtle definition on the eyes.  I chose to keep the eyes quite pared down as I wanted to wear this beautiful deep plum lipstick, MAC Huggable Lipcolour in Cocomotion.  I must have forgotten to write down the exact shades I used from the palette to create this look as I can’t see them in my folder (sorry!) but I remember using a combination of the plum shades in the first column (top down).

I’m planning to post more of the looks I have created using this palette on the site, so stay tuned! You can find looks using this palette on the site here.

Purple and Coral (Using Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really love the combination of purple and coral, either in an eyeshadow combination or on the eyes and lips.  For this look, I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette (you can see my post on the palette here) to create a bronze and purple eye.  I applied Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Peach Beach (you can see my post on these lipsticks here) to give a peach-coral finish to the lips.

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.

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).

I’ve been really enjoying creating various eyeshadow combinations using the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette (you can see my post on this palette here). I felt so inspired by the colour scheme that I have been using it regularly for my eyeshadow looks.

I thought it would be fun to post four different colourful combination ideas using the Riviera Palette. Each of these looks is pretty quick to create and gives a lovely, colourful effect on the eyes. 

I tried to keep the number of brushes I used to the minimum to keep things nice and simple.  The majority of the looks use just the Real Techniques Crease Brush for the crease, outer v, highlighting the browbone and blending and the MAC 239 for the lid.  I also used the Kiko Eyes 61 Graphic Eyeliner Brush (a square edged, thin eyeliner brush) for looks incorporating eyeshadow along the lower lashline.

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.
