Fiery

I dug out my old BH Cosmetics 120 palette today - This palette was one of the first palettes I ever bought when I first started posting makeup photos, since I couldn't afford or have access to higher end products and needed a lot of colours to play around with. 

To this day this palette still remains one of my favourites for value for money. The quality is decent and there's pretty much every colour and finish in there. 

There are quite a few brands that stock this kind of 120 palette and I'd recommend them for anybody working with a budget or first starting out. They are fantastic to practice with and mine is seeming to last forever! I hope you like the look I put together today using all shadows from the 2nd Edition.

Paint

Another brilliant use for matte liquid lipsticks is to use them on the eyes (providing they are eye-safe, of course!) and I couldn't resist using this extraordinary blue liquid lipstick by Anastasia Beverly Hills as an eyeliner. 

I simply put a little bit of product on the back of my hand and applied it as you would with any other cream, gel or liquid liner with an eyeliner brush. Paired with a matching shadow and pencil liner along the lower waterline for striking blue overload!




EYES:
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in 'Paint' to line eyes 
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color in 'Jet' along upper waterline
  • Mixture of Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Azure' eyeshadow (from the 'Shadow Couture' palette) and 'Star Cobalt' single eyeshadow along the lower lash line
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Bling' single eyeshadow to highlight inner corner 
  • Lila'lli Line. Define. Fill. pencil in 'City Lights' along lower waterline 
  • Eyeko Black Magic mascara 
  • Lash Boutique 'Lydia' false lashes 

BROWS:
