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!

Kiko ‘Green Me Collection’: 02 Feisty Saffron Eyeshadow Palette (re-released in 2019)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last year, I posted about the Kiko 02 Feisty Saffron Eyeshadow Palette, which was part of Kiko’s limited edition ‘Green Me’ collection. Kiko has released the Green Me collection again this year and included the 02 Feisty Saffron Palette.  I thought it would be helpful to flag up my post from last year, in case you are considering purchasing this palette.  I thought that this palette was a great smaller and cheaper alternative to Urban Decay’s Naked Heat Palette and Tarte’s Toasted Palette.  

Last year’s post included a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko.  Click here to see the post.

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.

This post provides an overview of all of the looks included in my recent Rainbow Series.  The Rainbow Series includes looks based around each of the colours of the rainbow.  You can read about the series and view each of the original individual posts here.

This post provides a short summary of each look and two face photos for each combination.  You can click on the links for each look (under the eye photos above and on the titles for each look below) to view more details on how to re-create that particular look, see more photos and see what cheek and lip products I used.

Tip: I used the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette for all of the looks but you can substitute in eyeshadows from any brand.  The NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette in ‘Brights’ is a great dupe for the Urban Decay Full Spectrum and cheaper (£16 instead of £43).  You can view the NYX Palette here.

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around VIOLET, the seventh colour in the rainbow.  For this look, I combined violet with orange, coral and copper to create a fun contrast of colours on the eyes.  I often wear purples with blues or pinks, so it was fun to try out a different combination.  You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around INDIGO, the sixth colour in the rainbow.  I was a little bit nervous about this colour, as I don’t normally wear dark, satin shades on my lid.  I like how it turned out, though, which shows it can be fun to experiment with different looks.  You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around BLUE, the fifth colour in the rainbow.  I’ve not combined bright blue with hot pink before so I thought it would be a fun combination to try out.  I think this is one of my favourite colour combinations from the series so far!

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around GREEN, the fourth colour in the rainbow.   I decided to combine the greens with dark indigo in the outer v for this look, as I usually veer more towards wearing greens with yellows.  I’m enjoying how this series is encouraging me to try out new colour combinations!  You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.
