Miss G Couture is a well known online clothing store who sell the most up-to-date, on trend looks at such great prices! Obviously, when they launched their new makeup range recently I was totally thrilled, especially because I get to review a few bits for you all to see!
I actually haven’t owned any special edition NARS products before so obviously, I’m really excited for this. I’ve loved Nars in general for such a long time now though, their products are stunning! I’d happily put them in my top 5 makeup brands!
Eye shadow palettes are pretty much the most important part of your makeup collection, I mean where would you be without some stunning eye shadows to make those eyes pop? I’ve picked out the most staple eye shadow palettes on the market right now!
Well, thank goodness 2016 is over and we get to start a fresh in 2017! The past month has brought so much stress I can’t even begin to explain, I’ve learned a ton this past year though and I’ve had some amazing opportunities thrown my way and tried countless new brands of beauty products. This year will see the start of my YouTube channel and my blog will be expanding to talk about a wider variety of topics!
Makeup Atelier was a new brand to me until they kindly sent me a huge selection of products to try out but I was totally overwhelmed by just how amazing their products turned out to be, some of my favourite products are these stunning 5 shade eyeshadow palettes.
The glossy black packaging and clear window on the lid looks quite plain but is really effective and looks more sophisticated than other brands. I also love the way the whole lid bends completely backwards and makes a sort of stand so that the shadows are angled towards you as you’re trying to create a look, you don’t get this too often with palettes nowadays so it’s always a bonus when you do.
The palettes here are Brun Mauve and Wood Pink, Brun Mauve has 4 shimmery shades and one matte shade with a hint of glitter which is totally weird, it’s not something that you’d expect to find in a shimmery palette. I am literally in love with these colours, the left is a gorgeous pale pink which makes the perfect highlighting shade, next is a mauve shade which I use as a transition colour going up to my brow bone, the middle is a gorgeous rose colour with a pink shimmer running through which is perfect for the eye lid, next is a burgundy jewel shade which I use for defining my crease and then lastly is a warm brown with a small hint of silver glitter which I use in the crease also and along the lower lash line.
Next up is the Wood Pink palette which contains all matte shades, this is definitely my favourite out of the two, I’ve been really into a matte eye again recently so this is just perfect. First off is a cream shade which is perfect for highlighting the brow bone, next is a strong pink which I tend to use all over my eye lid, the middle shade is a peachy pink shade which is great (when blended well) as a transition colour, next is a burgundy colour which makes defining my eye crease such a fun task and lastly is a warm dark brown which I love putting in the outer corner of my lid and along my lower lash line.
As you can see by the swatches these are gorgeously pigmented, each swatch was just one swipe through the eye shadow and one onto my arm so you can tell just how amazing they are, they’re soft and creamy and blend like a dream. I literally couldn’t be without these palettes now, they’re also the most perfect size for carrying around in your bag and using for a quick touch up throughout the day.
The palettes are available for £25 each from Makeup Atelier, there are 24 different varieties of colours available so of course, if these shades aren’t your cup of tea then there just has to be a combination that is! Have you tried Makeup Atelier yet?
With Christmas less than a month away and knowing how hard it is to buy presents I thought I’d put together a Christmas gift guide for the beauty lovers among us with the hopes that at least someone finds that inspiration for the perfect gift!
October’s over and done with, time to hide up the Halloween costumes and start rooting around for that Christmas tree because before you know it, it’ll be December and you’ll have a million and one other things that need to be done before Christmas! For once in my life I feel very organised and relaxed about Christmas!
