In November last year I was asked what I wanted for my birthday and as a Beauty Pie subscriber, my Sister in law suggested I could try some Beauty Pie products if I wanted as I’m not (currently, but will be!) a subscriber! I did jump at this option and sent a list of things I wouldn’t mind trying. This is what I got:
Ultra Pro Colour Gel Eyeliner – ‘Very Pretty Plum’ – I love a nice soft eyeliner and hate anything scratchy! This gel eyeliner pencil is easy glide so applies easily without dragging on my lid. The colour has a great payoff and once it is on it doesn’t budge! Such a lovely shade too and something different to a typical brown or black eyeliner that I usually go for!
One Powder Wonder – Having heard great things about this powder I thought I would give it a go. I have a lot of loose powders but have been on the look out for a translucent powder compact that I could put in my handbag. This powder is fantastic! I swipe it through my T-zone and it takes down shine and sets my makeup perfectly. If I am simply wearing SPF or a BB cream and have a bit of excess shine, this is great to just take that down. It sits beautifully on my skin and doesn’t cake up or affect whatever I’m applying it over. I do think it helps to blur my skin a little too. Super lightweight and doesn’t dry my skin out either. I can’t rave about this powder enough!
Easy Smokey Eyes Perfect Pocket Palette – I have to be honest, when I first tried this, I didn’t rate it! I found the shades to not give great pigment and they seemed a little chalky so I put it in my draw and didn’t really use it. Fast forward to last week and I thought I would give it another go…let’s face it, I’ve got plenty of time to play with makeup at the moment! I started with the centre shade but decided to use it with a wet brush and pressing it onto my mobile lid. It looked beautiful! The shimmer really brightened my eyes. I then took the 2nd shade and pressed this into my crease (and slightly above as my eyelids are hooded) and it gave my eyes definition. Lastly, I used the far shade in the outer corner and through the outer part of my lower lashes. I also popped a little touch of the 4th shade in the centre of my mobile lid. I hadn’t intended on wearing any makeup that day but was pleased with how the eyeshadow had turned out, so I completed the look! I’ve totally changed my mind on this little palette, it really is a perfect easy smokey eye palette!
These are the items I used to complete the look:
