New Make-Up

Happy Saturday everyone!

Being a make-up addict is something that is so wonderful, and so dangerous at the same time. Wonderful in that it allows me to be creative, but dangerous in that I would be willing to spend every penny I ever earn on make-up. I wish that was an exaggeration.

Recently, since being paid, I treated myself to a couple of new bits, and I think this is something I will do every month - treat myself to some new make-up. At the end of the day, I work for it, so why shouldn't I spend a little bit on myself!?


 Shades (Left-Right): Azure, White Out, Burnt, Pearl, Scene, Rare.

I am highly impressed with this palette, especially for the price I paid. For £2 per shadow, it is completely worth the risk as to whether the pigment is going to be good or not. As you can see from my swatches, the pigmentation for the majority of them is really good! I was a bit disappointed with Pearl, but I am going to use that as an all-over shade before putting anything else on so it doesn't bother me too much. 

The shadows are so creamy and easy to blend, and makes the perfect palette for someone who is starting off with make-up. There are a lot of neutral colours to choose from in the eyeshadow range. The great thing about this palette is that you can mix-and-match with highlighter shades, contour shades, blush shades, and I think they're also bringing out some lipsticks that can click into the palettes too! 

Here is a look a did with this palette (with a little step-by-step tutorial) using the red-toned shadows:

1. Start with an all over colour - Pearl is perfect for this as it matches my skin tone. This will help blend the shadows in nicely together. I brushed this all over my lid right up to the brow-bone.

2. Run Burnt through the crease, and keep blending it further up the brow using Pearl. This will help the shadow blend seamlessly together. I then ran a brown colour from the Morphe 35W palette to darken the crease further. 

3. Using my finger, I then pressed the shimmer shades from this palette onto the lid. Starting with Rare, I pressed this all over the lid without going past the crease. After blending that into the crease colour, I lightly pressed Scene into the very centre of the lid.

4. This is the part where I add liner and finish of my face makeup. The liner I used is a liquid one from Collection, and is one of the best eyeliners I have ever used. I find that it's so easy to glide onto the eyes into the shape that you desire. I also put Burnt and Rare along my bottom lashes.

5. Here I used Estée Lauder's Little Black Primer to prime my eyelashes ready for the Estée Lauder's Sumptuous Extreme Mascara. I then ran the Little Black Primer through my lashes once more to set them in place. This combination together is so nice, and the Little Black Primer helps to fan the lashes out so that they're not clumpy in any way. 

Here is the finished look. Excuse the terrible lighting and awful hair, my ring light is on charge and my hair needs washing. I finished off with my NEW (squeeeeee) Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny. One of the two a purchased with this months pay check - the other is Celebrity Skin. Both lovely colours!!

So that was my new make-up that I have been waiting to rave about. I highly recommend those palettes to anyone - beginner or advanced - so creamy and nice to use!

I was also wanting your opinion guys... should I start doing tutorials on a YouTube channel? I have wanted to do them for a while, and I can imagine it's much easier than taking photos after every step? What do you guys think? Leave me a comment or drop me a message! 

Until next time, my lovelies!
