Christmas 2017: Reddish Eye Shadows Palettes

Reddish eye makeup is really in! Remember the absolutely gorgeous red makeup collection from Chanel? And Heat Naked Urban Decay palette?

Now, there are so many palettes to choose from, and here are just a few:

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

In my April beauty favourites I promised to swatch theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette. I actually really like theBalm eye shadows (nude Tude and Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 , and this one was not an exception.

My friend was actually clearing out her collection, and passed this onto me.  While not all shades look good on my complexion, some of them I adore, and use a lot. My personal favourites are: Matt Rossi (cool toned taupe) and Matt Kumar (warm-toned reddish brown).

As it is always with theBalm eye shadows they are very smooth and soft, their mattes are some of the best on the market, they are not at all chalky or dusty, you can see how pigmented they are, too, on the swatches below. Gorgeous, right?

One more thing which I really like is a huge mirror which is brilliant for

Beauty Inspiration: Futuristic and Dystopian

I have to admit that I am slightly obsessed with dystopian novels, and  love all those futuristic and manus x machina themes. And, yes, I do have a board on Pinterest.

It may have something to do with the fact that I did culture studies back at uni and read lots of philosophical theories on the subject.  Whatever it is, I have been always fascinated with the futuristic beauty.

Here is actually a photo I’ve posted on Instagram recently.

My Top 5 Favourite Beauty Products From Illamasqua

I’ve been thinking about this new feature something like “My Top Beauty Products From My Favourite Brands” for some time now and I thought five would be a good number…

I’d like to start with Illamasqua, as it is one of my favourite beauty brands, as you may know. And that is for many reasons that I have previously explained.

I won’t lie, it was very hard to pick up only five products as I own a lot of Illamasqua. But, after a lot of consideration, here they are!

Cream Blusher in Rude

This is the first product from the brand that I have tried and I still love it, the formula and the colour are great, I also really like the design. To read a full review and see it applied, click here.

Pure Pigment in Berber

Of course, this one had to be included,  Berber is a stunning auburn shade with shimmer, it looks gorgeous on the eyes and is actually more wearable than you may think. See it also here.

Nail Varnish in Viridian

This nail varnish is my top three nail polishes that I own, it’s a perfect dark green/blue, spot

Best Eye Shadows for Green Eyes and Emerald Green Contact Lenses

I think I have already told you several times that I am curious about how I’d look like with green eyes. In fact,  my father and pretty much everyone in his family, including my cousins, have  green eyes and blonde hair.

Luckily, these days it is easy to try both (new hair colour and even eye colour)…I actually did dye my hair blonde when I was 16, hello teen years! But have realized that I have never tried “changing” my eye colour. And I am talking about colour lenses here…

I am pretty sure that you know that the colour of the moment is Emerald Green, as  reported by Pantone. Looks  like it’s the perfect timing for trying the green lenses. For example the Acuvue 2 Colours by Johnson & Johnson which are available in a  lot of colours, including Emerald Green.

One of the coolest thing about trying on the contact lenses is the fact that you can play with different makeup shades! Although, it is “just makeup” and you can use whichever  colours you want, certain shades can  make your eyes pop, so it’s worth knowing which ones.

When you look at the colour wheel,
