It’s finally here! My third and final post on how amazing I found the makeup from my mini haul!! (Thank you if you have taken time to read the previous two, if you haven’t… You should!) In this ramble I wanna show you how great my new favourite eyeshadow palette is. Revolutions ‘Fortune Favours The Brave’.
With an incredible array of colours from mattes to high shimmers and glitters, you can create any look you desire from casual, to sophiscated to a super glam evening look! I wanted to do this post last, as over the past couple of weeks I’ve been building up a few pictures using different shades on the palette to show you guys.
The quality of the eyeshadows are amazing considering the super affordable price. They are so easy to blend, I use the double ended brush that comes with the palette as well as Revolutions eyeshadow blender (shown in Revolution Mini Haul – Part 1!) to apply. The eyeshadows are also so, so pigmented that the colours honestly look as great on than they do in the palette!
The beautiful ‘Fortune Favours The Brave’ eyeshadow palette features a clear overlay sheet with each eyeshadow shades personal name. I have featured the particular ones I have used captioned under each picture for you guys to feast your eyes on!
Have any of you beauties grabbed yourselves a palette?
These days it’s all about nude colours with one main focus, James Kaliardos, backstage at Rodarte, applied pale colours to the models faces and a shimmy eyeshadow with a bold deep burgundy colour emphasising the lip…
… Where as at Oscar de la Renta Diane Kendal used thick black liner with a contrasting pale nude to create a bold striking cat-eye look…
My go-to look revolves around a big bold eye as the focus of my face, this is achieved with a simple smokey eye, using a selection of four coloured eyeshadows, my favourite being a range of Browns and shimmery cream colours.
To start off with I use Simple Kind to Skin Day Moisturizer which you can BUY HERE on their website, throughout this time of the year my skin really dries up and flakes, this Moisturizer is super thick and skin rejuvenating and looks completely flawless under bareMinerals Pure Brightening Serum Foundation! For highlighting I use Soap and Glory Dirty Works Concealer/highlighter (now so ancient it no longer exists online, but forever treasured) only needing a slight smudge to cover up any under eye bags and for priming the eyelid before the shadow is applied.
For the first steps of the eye shadow I applied the palest matte cream colour from No7s eyeshadow pallet, using a thin eyeshadow brush I used the darkest brown on the Bonjouris Smokey Eye Trio in Nude Ingenu to darken the eyelid crease; starting from the very outer corner and working my way into the inner corner.
Using the single No7 eyeshadow colour in shimmery grey I then outline the dark brown (this time beginning in the inner corner and bring it out to the outer corner of the eye) to blend into the previous colours that I originally used to base the lid with.
When it comes to eyeliner I am so indecisive, the eyeliner I use each day is always depending on what flick I’m feeling, included in my go-to look is my fine line eyeliner, created using Miss Sporty Cat Eyes!! Using Tinted Primer by Benefit in Mink Brown I lightly traced my eyebrows to darken, being careful not to stain the skin whilst doing so! I used the same tinted mascara to base my eyelashes with before using a dark black to thicken both top and bottom lashes.
To finish off my day-to-day look I use Perfecting Veil by bareMinerals and Grape-Vine Baby Lips lip balm. – I am totally obsessed!!
