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.

Keep an eye out for upcoming posts on eyeshadow combination ideas using The Wants Palette! 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!

Timeless Favourites: The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I thought I would kick-start the new ‘Timeless Favourites’ series (you can read more about the series here) with The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer.  Mary-Lou Manizer used to be regularly featured on YouTube and on make-up blogs as a favourite of many make-up lovers.  I wrote a post on this product back in 2016 and thought it would be fun to re-visit the product, as it is still in my collection.

I’m so glad I tried out this product again as it has become one of my favourite highlighters all over again! Mary-Lou Manizer is a pale, champagne-gold powder highlighter which can be used to add radiance to the face, cheeks and eyes.  I think it is perfectly suited to obtaining the strobing effect which is so popular right now.

Hot Magenta and Black (Using Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve really been enjoying dipping back into palettes that I purchased a while ago (from Urban Decay, Kat Von D and Too Faced) as it can be so easy to get sidetracked by all the new releases.  I really love the bold pops of colour and smokier tones in the Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette and came up with this magenta and black eyeshadow combination.

To complement the look I used: MAC Blusher in Melba (matte peach) and MAC Huggable Lip Colour in Fresh and Frisky (light coral-peach).

Rich Cocoa (Using Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love & Cocoa is a beautifully rich, metallic chocolate brown shade from the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette).  I couldn’t resist trying it out on the lid alongside Holla For a Dolla in the crease and Famous on the inner lid.

All Out Blue (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I thought it would be fun to use various shades of blue eyeshadow from MAC to kickstart my new ‘Spotlight on MAC’ series.  You can read more about the ‘Spotlight on MAC’ series here.

Some of the shades are from the permanent range, whilst a couple are from past limited edition collections.  I’ve given suggestions for permanent shades you can use in place of the limited edition ones, in case you don’t have them.

To complement the look:  I used Kiko Marmoreal Biscuit Baked Blush (you can read more about this product here) on my cheeks and Bare Minerals Gen Nude Lipstick in Nudist on the lips.

Kiko Glow Fusion Powder Highlighter in 01 Champagne

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko (click here to see the post).  As part of the ‘Metal Fusion’ collection, there are powder highlighters which are also available in the permanent Kiko range.  I already have the Glow Fusion Powder Highlighter in 01 Champagne, which was included in the ‘Metal Fusion’ collection.  This highlighter gives such a beautiful, natural glow to the face that I think it is well worth a post!

Purple Emerald (Using Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My last couple of looks with the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette) have been fairly subtle and so I really wanted to experiment with a bolder look.  This look combines together deep metallic forest green and purple eyeshadows to create a strong, defined effect on the lids.

To complement the look: I used The Balm Balm Springs Blush on the cheeks, The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer (click here to read more about this product) to highlight the tops of the cheekbones and Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paint in 610 Stripped Down (click here to read more about this product) on the lips.

Chocolate Olive Gold (Using Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is my second look using the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette).  Holla For A Dolla is a really beautiful, metallic olive green and I couldn’t wait to try it out with some of the golds and chocolate browns in the palette.
