I love single eyeshadows – they allow you to create your own colour stories and palettes, are great for travelling, and you can pick individual shades to customise your collection without the bulk and redundancy of buying pre-made palettes.
nowadays many brands provide magnetised palettes, from which you can pop out the eyeshadows and use them as singles, so I decided to compare my singles to those “pop-able” shades… it took me more time and effort, but I ended up with a far more accurately curated selection of my truly favourite and unique shades.
on this video, I’m focusing on the bright colours.
Your wish is my command, and, despite the internet being filled to the brim with brown and gold looks, this is my take on it, based on (despite the fail) the Samantha Ravndahl New Years look. If you decide to replicate it, do try to make the gold stripe thinner ;)
you’ll need two shades that I’d bet 99% of makeup wearers have on their stashes, and I added a bit of extra glimmer in the end.
I hope you have a wonderful week and, if you try to replicate this, let me know by tagging me on Instagram!
juicy berries, from deep wine reds to shiny blue-violets, so much to play with in this week’s monochromatic look. I ended up extending the eyeshadow up to the inner corner of my brow and out, so it became a very fun vintage-inspired glam 20’s flapper vamp thingy.
for those who got overwhelmed with the colour-picking, the blending, the expensive products and the overall faff of my previous smokey eye video, here’s a fool- proof tutorial with one eyeshadow and one brush.
