Quite recently, I bought a new eyeshadow palette (no surprises there, huh?), and I was very very excited as I have never owned such a palette before. The palette in question is the Makeup Revolution Palette in Redemption, and it only cost £4 from Superdrug (you can find it on the Superdrug Website also) so I'm pretty annoyed that I have never thought to buy one before.
On the few occasions I have used it so far, I have very much enjoying wearing it and am finding it incredibly easy to create all sorts of looks with it due to the versatile colour selection. Therefore, today I thought I would just show you one of the looks that I am currently loving to create with this palette, and am using as my go-to eye look right now...
This look was super easy to create and I just used five of the 12 shadows available in the palette to create it (I have noted which ones in the image above, if you too want to create this look!)
1- Firstly, I just took the really light matte shade from the palette and put it all over my lids and also just into the arch of my brows. I did this both to get a base for the rest of my eyeshadow, and to add more shape and highlight under my brows.
2-Using the brown shade which is also matte I just covered most of my eyelids, as this brown is quite light and just works well to start building up the colour with.
3-This brown is darker and also shimmery. Yet again I just applied it over my eyelids, making sure to get a little deeper into the crease this time as I began to add definition to the look. This shade also just adds a little sparkle and light to the eyes after previously using two matte shades.
4-Next, I swooped some of the really dark shimmer shade right into the creases of my eyelids and blended out until the shadow was dark and defined, yet not too severe and clunky.
5-Finally over the top it I just dabbed on some of the silver glitter shade which just really lit up my eyes. It adds a very wintery spin to the look, which is something I love due to the fact that I normally opt for nude eyes.
And above is the finished look, plus the rest of my makeup! (My eyeliner is the Soap&Glory Supercat and my mascara is the Benefit Roller Lash, both of which are available on Boots.com). I really like the subtlety of this eye look (it works really well day or night), as well as the fact it's not really the typical eye look that I would create.
It was really fun actually showing you all how I create a certain makeup look in this post, so it will definitely be something that I would like to do more of in the future...
