Hi loves! Okay you knew I was extremely excited about the Illamasqua products I picked up right? Well I was excited, I already created a makeup look, pictured it and have a quick post for you today. I think the haul amped up my creative juices, and I felt very inspired. Hope you like it.
This was my first time playing with this palette and actually this type of eyeshadow texture. I found that this texture worked best with finger tips, I’ll explain what I put where. I really have enjoyed this palette, but I think it is perfect for those days when you want a really quick makeup look and can swipe on shadows with your fingers. I think I will be wearing in the morning as I need a quick look that is fast and presentable.
Okay let’s start on products used before I start going into what I put where.
- Illamasqua Reflection Palette
- MAC Carbon (matte black)
- Illamasqua Pure Pigment in ‘Beguile’
- 2True Liquid Eyeliner
- Avon Supershock Pencil Liner in Black
- BareMinerals Lash Domination
- False Lashes (sorry I don’t know which ones!)
So what went where? The first thing I did was use MAC Carbon to draw in the cut crease line and blended upwards. I then added Graphica (the grey from the palette) and blended it in. Next using my fingertips I applied Dart (toasted bronze) all over the lid taking extra care with a detailer brush just below the cut cease line. I think took the pale shimmer colour Pericipe on my fingertips and added it to the inner corner and under the brow bone. Next again using my fingertips I added Acute (ash taupe) under the lash line and blended in the pencil eyeliner to define the area more. To add a bit more oopmh I added Beguile to the inner corner and finished the look with liner, mascara and lashes.
I think the next look I’m going to create with this palette is going to be a more wearable every day one. Do let me know if you want to know what that ends up looking like! And yes I do have green eyes guys I’ve been wearing brown contacts all this time – surprise! Just kidding, green contacts in that look so obvious! I hope you liked today’s post it was short and sweet and speaking of sweet.. I have a perfume post coming up soon!
