For years and years I have been building my make up collection, to the point where I need a suitcase to put it all in. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I have been obsessed with eyeshadow ever since I swatched my first product. I love the way eyeshadow can bring a beauty look from a 5 to a 10, its magical in its own right. Anyone who knows me will also tell you that I hoard eyeshadow palettes. I am a self diagnosed palette hoarder.
I can’t stress to you how long it has taken me to build my collection of shadows into the shrine it is today; I have an impressive collection of beautiful shadow palettes (all of which my mum thinks look the same, which is insulting tbh).
I am OBSESSED with red and burgundy shadows, they are beautiful on a hazel brown eye with a hint of gold glitter to make them pop. This can be accompanied with a nude lip (my go-to is Kylie Cosmetics- Exposed Matte) which makes for the perfect autumnal look with a hint of optional glitter for a girl who likes to look glam.
I will be the first to confess that my eyeshadow skills used to be catastrophic to say the least. 14 year old me did not know the concept of blending or precision, more like putting as much on my eyelid as possible and hoping for the best. It was not the best FYI.
To demonstrate this look, I’ve made a quick video for you guys in the hope that you can replicate it and feel as good as I do when I wear this look. (If you have blue eyes, I seriously recommend this look but with a dark purple and shimmer pink instead, it makes blue eyes POP and will go perfectly with the same nude lip and an iced white highlight on the cheeks). The best thing about this look is you only need 2 products and a brush to pull it off!
– Morphe 35O palette (Naked 3 palette for blue/green eyes)
–MAC 217 blending brush
–L’oreal Telescopic mascara
I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial, I also hope that you can recreate it. Let me know your thoughts in the comments as I’d love to hear your feedback as well as what type of products you like to use on a daily basis for a daytime look!
