Beautiful Creatures Eyeshadow Guest blog post

First thing’s first, hello! It’s such an honour to be on
Sabrina’s blog today as I’ve been a big time lover of A Little Obsessed for a
really long time now. I’m Jemma and I blog over at Bamboozle Beauty and like a
lot of you, I’m completely obsessed with make up. One thing I absolutely love
doing is applying eye make up. It was one area of make up that I never really
explored when I was younger – those deep colours, mascara wands that look like
they’re about to poke your eye out? Yup, used to frighten me to death. And it’s
only in the past couple of years that I’ve started wearing eye make up and the
past few months that I’ve really started to experiment with it.

 The look above was one that I didn’t plan out. For me,
that’s the beauty of make up – you’re pretty much free to do whatever you like.
And after reading somewhere that purple enhances green eyes, I raided my
collection and came across two beautiful purple colours that I had to paint my
eyelids with. The KIKO Eyetech Look Eyeshadow’s are wonderful contraptions as
they’re tiny with buildable colour. The shade I used (106) is a gorgeous bright
purple shade that really makes the eyes stand out when it’s applied sheer. They
come with their own applicator which makes applying eye make up quick and easy
– great for professional looks in an instant.

Unfortunately, the majority of the eyeshadows I used in
this look are from the Purminerals Beautiful Creatures palette which is now
sadly unavailable. The reason why I love this palette is not only because the
quality of the shadows are outstanding but because it’s very versatile and the
shades are wearable whilst allowing you to inject a bit of colour into your
look. With deep plums, stunning khakis and beautiful neutrals, there’s bound to
be a look for you to create. I used ‘Fantasy’ in the outer corner to deepen the
look and ‘Forbidden’ in the crease to make it more wearable. I love applying
shadow underneath the lash line and for this look, I used ‘Fate’ which is a
beautiful muted down bronze colour.
Underneath all of this make up, I used the KIKO Pearly
Eye Base which is a primer that’s cheap as chips and really enhances shadows
when they’re blended onto the eyes. And of course, it makes them last all day
long like a primer is supposed to. I used a combination of my two favourite
eyeliners to add definition to the eyes – before discovering the Collection
2000 Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner I could never wing my eyeliner out.
Shocking, isn’t it? And to finish the look off, I used my trusty SEVENTEEN
Doll’d Up mascara. It’s a great all-rounder as it makes the lashes longer and
fuller without any clumps.

Beautiful Creatures eyeshadow in Fate Liquid liner: Collection 2000 Extreme 24 HourFelt Tip Liner  On the waterline: KIKO Vivid Eyes Kajal and Eyeliner  Mascara: SEVENTEEN Doll’d Up 

And there you have it. The completed look. I’m pretty
happy with how it turned out. I do tend to shy away from colours but by mixing
the purple with the neutral bronzes, it created a purple eye that’s easy to
wear. I really hope you like the finished piece and if I could give you a piece
of advice it’d be to experiment. Don’t hide away from colour as you’re bound to
find a way to make it work for you.
Thanks so much Jemma for the guest post! I can’t wait to try it myself!

    This is a gorgeous look! I love how you brought shadow in the bottom lash line as well. It's too bad the palette is limited edition but your eyes do look amazing!
