My favourite eye palettes

Hi Honeys,


So this week’s So Project is all about eye-shadow, OoOo!


Eye-Shadow is a product that provides colour to your eye to either add colour to your face or to bring out the colour of your eye by using nude colours etc.


In this post I am going to show you my favourite eye-shadow products that I use on a day to day basis or for a more glam look on a night out.


For my Everyday eye I like to stick to nudes and gold’s, For this I use my MUA Undress me 1 & 2 palettes, these are £4 each from superdrug or from MUA’s website. This are such gorgeous colours and super pigmented and also a fab dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 1 & 2 palettes, If I am wearing a really bold lip for a night out, I will also use these palettes to pair a nude eye with a really bold lip.  


Some days I like to just wear a shade on its own, other days I like to mix colours. My favourite at the moment is a matte pale shade all over my lid and up to my eyebrow, a shimmery pale shade all over my eyelid and a dark gold or brown colour in my eye socket crease and on the outer corners. Then I blend this all out for a quick and easy everyday smoky eye!


For my evening/glam look I like to do a typical black and grey smoky eye, I think this looks beautiful teamed with a nude lip or with a bright coloured lip such as a deep red or bright pink.


I like to use my L&B smokey eyes palette for this, I picked this up from boots earlier this year in the new year’s sale, I add the white shade all over my eye up to my eyebrow, and then the light grey shade on the outer half of my eye and the darkest black shade in my eye socket crease and along my lower and upper lash line. I then blend this all out with my real techniques blending brush.


For a ‘pop’ of colour:

I don’t really like adding colour all over my lids, as I find it looks too 70’s/80’s and quite tacky, well on me anyway! I love my colour eye-shadows and adding a pop of colour to my eyes every now and then, especially purple as I think this looks gorgeous with a blue eye. So to add colour to my eye, I do either my every day or evening/glam look and then I add the ‘pop’ of colour by picking the shade I want and adding this to my eye along my top and lower lash lines like an eyeliner just slightly thicker and blended out more with brush. This shows off the colour to match your outfits and eye colour but subtitle without looking like you have just walked out of a 80’s rave! I like to use my MUA Immaculate collection palette for this as it has a wide range of colours.
