I hope you are all well and have had a great first week whether you were back at school/college/work! Since I last posted the holidays have sadly ended and I am back to having lots of work and studying to do aaah! I’ve decided that I am going to have a set day when I post to make things easier which will be a Sunday and sometimes an extra bonus one! With my rambling out of the way, for this weeks post I’m back with another makeup tutorial!
The lovely people over at Seventeen kindly sent me another package which included one of their ‘easy on the eyes’ palettes in ‘the big smoke’ which I have had a lot of fun experimenting with! They also sent me some other products that will be featured in an upcoming post. As I already had their other palette in ‘birthday suit’ I thought I would share with you a daytime and evening eyeshadow look using these palettes and let you know what I think of them! I hope you enjoy lovelies…
The looks I have gone for is a pinky copper eye for the daytime using the ‘birthday suit’ palette with a hint of smokiness for the evening using ‘the big smoke’ palette.
Daytime Eyeshadow Look ‘Birthday Suit’…
- First I took the eyeshadow primer and placed that all over the lid to prime them for the eyeshadow. I never used to bother with a primer but after using the one that comes in the palette, trust me it makes all the difference!
- Next I took one of the cream shadows in ‘burnt copper’ and placed that all over the lid. The metallic eye creams can just be used alone also!
- Then I took a lighter shade ‘sun kissed peach’ and placed that in the inner corner blending darker towards the outer corner.
- Finally I took ‘warm ivory’ only in the inner corner of my eyes and on my brow bone to highlight. Adding a lighter shade in your inner corner gives the illusion that your eyes are more awake!
This palette is now my new favourite eyeshadow palette that I have ever owned! You may or may not know that I have an obsession with rose gold and copper so to me having a palette dedicated to those shades…I’m in heaven! Theres always shades that I wouldn’t use in palettes but not in this one! I know I’m going to love and wear every shade in this palette as they are so wearable and come with a whole different range of finishes.
This palette is great for in the daytime as it has natural, neutral shades but with a bit of shimmer at the same time! Both palettes come with a range of 8 matte, shimmer & pearl powders, 3 metallic creams and & eye primer with a dual ended application, mirror and get the look guide! How amazing!?? The thing I love most about this palette is the huge mirror and the fact that it includes a primer! What a marvellous invention!
Usually in palettes the applicator is just a dual ended sponge like brush which aren’t the best, however I have been the brush that comes in these palettes as they are a lot different! They are an actual brush that are so easy to use and blend. As it is double ended, I use one side for the primer and the other for the shadow but each to their own!
Evening Eyeshadow Look ‘The Big Smoke’…
As you can tell by the name, this palette is all about the dramatic smokey eye so I thought this would be perfect for the evening look! If you prefer wearing more natural shades like me it does still include some golds and neutral shades. You can wear these shades as little or as dramatic as you like!
- First I took the primer just how I did in the previous look.
- Next I took a beautiful gold shade called ‘illuminated bronze’ and again took this all over the lid.
- Then I took another metallic cream in the shade ‘cool aluminium’ and placed that in the inner corner of my eyes to add an extra bit of shimmer.
- Finally to make this look more smokey and dramatic, to define my eyes I took the shade ‘cocoa brown’ and placed that in the outer corner continuing to blend. This shade could also be used to line the eye. You could miss this step out if you wanted but I thought I would give an option if you like a more smokey effect!
That brings me to the end of my daytime and evening eyeshadow looks using the Seventeen ‘easy on the eyes’ palettes. I’m not a makeup expert by any means but I hope this post helped on how to create some easy eye looks! Thankyou so much for reading as always and I hope you enjoyed this post! Comment what your favourite look was and if you would like me to do a full review on these with a few other Seventeen products?? See you in my next post,
