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: 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.

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: 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.

I mentioned in my recent ‘sneak peek’ post (you can see the post here) that one of my favourite YouTubers, EmilyNoel83, has launched two palettes, in collaboration with MakeupRevolution.  The two palettes – The Wants and The Needs – are amazing and I have really been enjoying playing with them.

Today’s post features ‘The Wants’, an eyeshadow palette with 24 eyeshadows spanning a wide range of colours, tones and finishes.  The shades in the palette have been created to inspire you, as well as to keep you in your comfort zone with your make-up.

I absolutely love this eyeshadow palette, as it has an amazing range of colours, tones and finishes, all for just £15.  I would highly recommend the palette to anyone who wants to try out lots of different, great quality shades at an affordable price.

You can read my post on ‘The Needs’ Palette here.

You can view eyeshadow combinations and look ideas using The Wants Palette on the site here! I’m really enjoying playing around with it and creating different looks.  Let me know if there are any shades you would love me to showcase in looks!
