I love this time of year! I love the colours and the warmer clothes. It is now I can start using all my favourite shades when creating a make up look and I feel at my most inspired.
For day four of my Blogtober challenge I am going to be talking to you about three eye shadow palettes that have the ability to create some amazing Autumn inspired looks. Each one has something different to the other and each has a different price point so I hope you find something you like. Let’s get started:
It wouldn’t be Autumn unless I was talking about the Morphe 35o (£23 for 35 shadows, both shimmer and matte). Now yes this has now been out a while but this is a cult favourite with so many. The one pictured is the original 35o as Morphe have now created a matte based one, a shimmer and the 35o2.
The colour spectrum in the palette just fits so well with the season, I just grab for it as soon as September begins.
The palette includes plenty of nudes to use as a base and build up the transition area, you can then warm this up with the large selection of browns (both cooler and warm toned). My favourites are the luscious burnt oranges and reds, in particular the shimmer red to the bottom right. I die every time I look at it.
I really enjoy Morphe palette’s and think they are great value for money. The 35o is no different, the shadows are smooth and soft with great blend-ability. The colour pay off in this palette is so good. They are a little messy so I do my eyes before the rest of my face when using these but other than this it works like a dream.
The second palette I chose was the Huda Obsessions (£25.00 for 9 shadows) in Warm brown. This is quite pricey considering the size of palette you get but it’s so travel friendly, I use it mostly on a night out or if I’m away and need something small but quality.
Shade wise you have different choices to the 35o. I find the colours a lot deeper and more intense. The plum and purple colour are so rich along with the red to the top right. Plus the gold shimmer in the middle is out of this world (swatches don’t really do it justice).
Usage wise I really like the formula of Huda shadows, they always seem to get the shade range right within their palettes so you can create a look with each shadow blending into one another seamlessly. The have a buttery texture which is easy to move and blend into the eye, they have a good pigmentation and create little to no mess when using.
MUA Ever After matte palette is great if your living on a budget or just want to save a few pennies. The palette photographed has now been discontinued and reborn into the Undressed palette (£4.00 for 12 shadows) with a few shimmers added.
I picked this purely for the colour choice. The blue/green is such a lovely colour to create an eye look with a difference. The shadow quality is not as good as the other more expensive palettes and it is a bit of work as your going to have to build up the colours to create a nice gradient but for the price its not terrible. The formula is quite dry and chalky so priming the eyes and making sure the primers dried down would be good before applying these.
Let me know what you think about these palettes. Have you tried any of the ones mentioned? What eye looks do you like to create during the season?
Another thing I’d like to know is is anyone really ampping it up Make up wise for Halloween? Comment all your thoughts down below and lets get chatting.
Hope you’ve enjoyed reading, next post is tomorrow.
