The palette challenge – Week 1

Hello and happy new week loves! Last week I got the idea to do an eyeshadow palette challenge to use my eyeshadow palettes more. Basically I post three palettes on my instagram every week and my followers choose the one to use for the whole week. The rule is that I can use also other palettes if I need to, but I always have to use the main palette.  Last week the winner was Kiko Milano limited edition palette Light Pulse 01 pure colour extravaganza.

Ciao e buon inizio settimana care! La scorsa settimana ho avuto l’idea di fare la sfida delle palette di ombretti per usare di più le palette che ho. In pratica posto tre palette sul mio instagram ogni settimana e voi decidete quale palette uso per tutta la settimana. La regola è che posso usare anche altre palette se mi serve, ma devo sempre usare anche la palette principale. La vincitrice della scorsa settimana era una edizione limitata di Kiko – Light Pulse 01 pure colour extravaganza.

I managed to do four looks with it. Let me know your favorite in the poll at the end :*

Sono riuscita a fare quattro look. Fatemi sapere il vostro preferito nel sondaggio alla fine.

1. Pink Spring Flowers

2.Green Lady

3.Innocent Smokey

4.Welcome to the dark side


Makeup Look – Going Dark

going dark1

Well hello peeps :) Today (saturday 10th) I placed a Makeup Revolution order (which I can’t wait to receive!) and it made me wanna play around with makeup. I didn’t have anywhere to be so I thought I’d try something out of my comfort zone. I think most of you know I prefer lighter colors on my eyes and lips. At the end I really love the way it came out and I would totally consider going out like this too. I asked hubs if he’d go out with me if I wore this makeup, he said yeah sure, but you kind of look like you got punched on both eyes……:D:D:D:D:D That’s ok, he doesn’t understand bahahahaha But you know what else I love? These earrings! Aren’t they so fabulous?!

The picture below is a little foggy, I already mentioned in one of the latest makeup post that my camera was acting weird :/ I thought it was the settings, but I’m afraid my camera is dying. I hope I can fix it or I’m going to have to use hubs phone until christmas :(

For this look I used Kiko Light Impulse elegant shadows collection palette, I have never used this palette for a complete eye look. I really want to start using my palettes more and this is a lovely palette, the colors are really pigmented.  The grey in the inner corner and light brown transition colors are from the BH 120 color palette.

I even did a little contouring today and it didn’t suck. Woohoo! I rarely ever contour and that is also why I suck at it :P But yeah, I really really love how this look came out and I am now a little less scared of dark colors :)

Have a wonderful weekend sweethearts!
