Playing with Palettes!

Well today has certainly lived up to the Sunday expectation of a 'lazy day'. I have spent the morning watching beauty videos on YouTube and I stumbled across an old video from Pixiwoo doing an Adriana Lima inspired make-up tutorial. Nic used the Sleek Storm palette and it gave me an idea to follow her steps but use the colours from my different palettes.

Top: L-R Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, Sleek Storm palette (or what is left of it ha ha!) Bottom: L-R MUA Undressed palette, MUA Heaven and Earth palette

To create this look I used a light shimmery champagne colour all over my lid, with a dark brown smudged in at the lashes and blended upwards. I then used a black to line my top lashline and underneath the bottom lashes - which I blended out. I used a gold colour just in the centre of my lid. I wanted to keep it quite natural and complementary of the rest of my make-up, so I just used mascara and the new Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof  Kohl liner in 005 Nude on the waterline - no black liquid liner.

I wanted my skin to look fresh and healthy, so I used my Estee Lauder bronzer through the back of my cheeks, a pinky-peachy Max Factor creme blush on the apples of my cheeks and then I used my 17 Shimmer Brick to highlight. I used the Urban Decay lipgloss that comes with the palette on my lips.

Avon Ideal Flawless foundation in Ivory, Lancome Fluide Illuminateur, Bourjois 1001 Lashes, VIVO Brow and Eye Kit, Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Pink, Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof  Kohl liner in 005 Nude, Urban Decay Primer Potion, Collection Illuminating Touch concealer in 2 Natural, Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess, 17 Shimmer Brick, Urban Decay lipgloss in Naked, Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Translucent.

I love this make-up as there are so many neutral palettes and eyeshadows out there - you really can 'take your pick' and create a look with different products but still end up with the same result.

Love, Juliette xo
