Naturally Sparkly With Inglot 114 Pigment

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!

Teal and Brown Flying Hummingbird (Using Various Brands)

The fourth look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the Teal and Brown Flying Hummingbird.  There are so many different shades in this bird’s colour scheme – teal, green, bright blue, bright purple, brown, glints of black and white – which I thought would make for a really interesting look.  The look was a challenge for me, as it’s been a while since I’ve attempted to combine such a wide range of colours all just on my eyes! I really like how it turned out and think it is one of my favourite looks in the series.

You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

Tip: I used a wide variety of eyeshadow singles and shades from palettes for this look, as there were so many different colours to combine together.  You can read more about the shades I used below in the ‘Products’ section.

Robin (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

The third look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the Robin. Robins have a really interesting mix of colours and tones – brown, deep burnished orange and white – and so I thought this would be a fun combination to try out.  I used a slightly more red-based shade to tie in with the stereotype of Robins being ‘red-breasted’, even though they seem to be more orange-based in real life.

Flamingo (Using Too Faced Just Peachy Palette)

The second look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the Flamingo.  When I was browsing photos of flamingos online, I was struck by the variety in the colours of these birds.  The colour schemes seemed to range from cream, peach, coral, pink and vivid red.  I knew that flamingos could come in different colours but hadn’t realised there was quite so much diversity.  Nice to learn something new!

I chose to base my look around flamingos with white, cream, peach and coral-red feathers, along with black-ish beak tips (see photo below) For this look, I incorporated the white, cream, peach and coral-red on the lid and deep brown/black on the upper lashline.  I also used a bright peachy-coral on the lips to tie in with the bright coral red feathers.

Lid Looks With MAC Shiny Pretty Things Eyeshadows

 

MAC Make A Wish Shiny Pretty Eyeshadow

MAC Major Win Shiny Pretty Eyeshadow

MAC Joy To Shiny Pretty Eyeshadow

 

 

 

 

 

 

I thought it would be fun to post some simple looks showcasing the new MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows I purchased recently (you can read my post on the MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows with details, application tips, photos and swatches here).  Each of the three looks in this post showcases a different MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadow on the lid to illustrate the effect you can get with these products.

One thing worth mentioning is that the extreme sparkle, sheen and complexity in the shades shows up much more intensely in person than it does in the photos.  So you can expect much more sparkle and glitz with these products in person!

There are quite a few ways I can envisage using these products, whether you want a subtle pop of glitter or full on sparkle.  Let me know if you would like to see more look idea posts on how to use these eyeshadows!

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.

Golden Relic (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette (click here to read more about this product) to create this quick and easy golden peach combination.  I wanted to create something which looked fresh and bright on the eyes, compared to the smokey, sultry blue combination featured in my first Saint and Sinner look post here.  I used only one brush (the MAC 239) to create this look as well, keeping things nice and simple.

Emerald at Dusk

For this look, I used teal and green eyeshadows to create a fun, colourful spin on the traditional smokey eye.  I really like how teal and green eyeshadows look together.  

Tip: You could add a little lemon yellow eyeshadow in the very inner corners if you want to add even more colourful brightness to the eyes.  Black or deep teal liner along the upper and lower lashline would also add some extra smokiness to the look.

Autumn Colours with Periwinkle Liner

I felt like doing something different with my eye make-up yesterday and came up with this combination.  I added in a slick of pale blue liquid liner along the upper lashline to add an unexpected flash of colour to a peachy-pink, orange and brown eyeshadow look.

Tip: If the blue liner is too much for you, you can just leave it out and stick with the eyeshadow look.  I really liked how the eyeshadow combination looked on its own as well.

Sunset Rainbow (Using Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette)

It’s been a while since I wrote a post (work and life have been very busy recently) and so I wanted to kick-start my writing again with a bold and colourful look.  I used the new UD Full Spectrum Palette, which contains a rainbow array of colourful eyeshadows.

Tip: Lining the eyes with black liner and using lashings of black mascara really helps define the eye when using such bright eyeshadow colours.

Note: I’ll try to write a post on the UD Full Spectrum Palette soon, along with swatches, to give you an idea of what shades the palette contains.  Think bright and colourful, ranging from white, yellow, orange, coral, copper, purple, cranberry, green, blue and black!
