Hello beautiful ladies,
I spent a busy month trying to create some different looks using the Pastel Goth palette and the Heat palette which I’ve included in the reviews for both of those so I won’t include them here as well.
I have been trying to use as many different palettes as possible so that I can review some of them and create a step by step look with my favourite ones.
I have five looks that I considered my favourites, not including the above mentioned looks. Having only about half the month to pick from, I tried to create new looks that might feature every time I applied my makeup.

I wanted to see if I could create a similar look to the ones created by the Heat palette. I really like this look and colours but it was nowhere near the same warm orange/brown. I do think these blended better though.

To be honest, after all the makeup looks I had been creating this month, by now I was over anything dramatic. I just wasn’t in the mood for makeup but I wasn’t going bare faced either so here’s a super natural no makeup look.
I was running a few errands so nothing overly exciting either.

Lips: Too faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Nude.

This was a trial using the Nyx jumbo eye pencil in Milk to see if I could really make the gold ‘pop’. Mission accomplished. I didn’t notice much fading throughout the day either, however, I haven’t really put the palette to a thorough test for its longevity.
Saturday = work.

I said to myself that for my first day back at Uni, I should do a nude look. I even grabbed the Naked Basics and as I’m doing my nude eye look, I think, maybe a bit of gold shimmer…….bye bye nude eye look.
I was going back to Uni after 8 weeks off so it was a shock (after having so much time to dedicate to my blog and Instagram) to have so much work straight up.
Face: Too Faced Primed and Poreless Face Primer, Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Sunlight, Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Face Sculpt and Highlight, Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder.

Lips: MAC Lipstick in Viva Glam II.

I created a sunset look for my review on the Pastel Goth using the Violet Voss HG palette, however, after playing around with the look, I much prefer these Colourpop singles. This look is actually super easy to create so I’ll be using these colours a lot in the spring/summer.
Off to Uni again today.
Face: The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer, Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Face Sculpt and Highlight, Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder.
Eyes: Colourpop Eyeshadow Singles in Full-Zip, Wait For It, Making Moves and Stay Golden, Kat Von D Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette in Star, Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Soft Brown, Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer, Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.
Lips: Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Amber.
It was interesting to note that I had used the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and Soft Matte Complete Concealer in 4 out of 5 of these looks. As I have a system that means I can’t use products twice in a row, it shows that as soon as these two are available to use again, I reach for them.
I also want to add that the first photo was taken mid afternoon and that for some reason, the lighting at that time makes me look super tanned, not because I’ve used any tanning product.
Thank you for reading my post 🙂
