Pinks & Purples Eyeshadow Palette

I thought I would share with you guys bit by bit how I organize and store my makeup.

So I am going to share with you one of the most loved parts of my kit, my eyeshadow palettes! I'm going to start with my pink/purple palette 'cause it's my favorite and it contains some of my 'go to' colours. Having brown eyes I always feel that purples in particular do flatter my eye colour and make my eyes stand out. 

My eyeshadow palette is the new style MAC one. It comes in 2 parts, the outer case and the insert. The outer case can hold a few different inserts (for example the lipstick insert featured in my previous post)  but the eyeshadow one holds 15 pro palette eye shadows. 
I think having the eyeshadows in a palette rather than individually is soo much easier. Everything's in the same place and it makes organizing your make up a lot quicker and simpler! 
You can de-pot your individual eyeshadows to go in to the palette, which I can show you in a later tutorial if this is something you would like to see! 

So anyway, heres my Pink / Purple eyesadow palette. These are a selection of my favourite and most used shades. 

My Top 5

This is one of my favorite colours to use as a highlight in the inner corner of the eye when creating a smokey eye.  

One of my 'go to' colours. Looks great on pretty much anyone. Nice as a highlight on the brow bone, or inner eye or a base colour all over the lid. 

 I don't use  this one as much as I would like to. Its a lovely lilac shade with blue tones. Its a great colour to really make your eyes stand out. 

This is my must have colour for a purple eye makeup. The colour is so pigmented and vibrant.

This is a must have for the ultimate purple smokey eye. Its a deep burgundy purple with a slight glitter .i use this all the time in to outer corner and the crease of the eye. 

I would love to hear your thoughts, or if you have any links to posts you have done on eyeshadow palettes or makeup organizing I would love to see!

Until next time,

    1. Thanks so much for you comments Kelly, really do appreciate them!

      I know they are quite pricey, have to build them up bit at a time so it's not so expensive! x

  2. Sketch, Naked Lunch, and Cranberry are some of my favourites!

  3. Love this palette :) I bought my first MAC quad last month, Sketch was one of my choices :) Typically I wear Satin Taupe on the lid, Twinks on the outer half, and Sketch through the crease, looks so pretty :)
