Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m going to be showing you one of my easiest eye makeup looks using one of my oldest eye shadow palettes in my collection. Recently I’ve been lacking in the eye shadow department and excluding it out of my everyday makeup routing to save 5 minutes every morning. Now I feel like I’ve been transported right back to the beginning and I’ve forgotten what does what. After turning back to what was at one point one of my favourite palettes, I wanted to give the luxury of Estee Lauder’s sculpting eye shadow palettes another go to remind myself as to what all the fuss was about and lemme tell you – it did not disappoint.
After receiving a Estee Lauder gift set for Christmas from my Grandma one year when I first started getting into makeup, this Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow palette was one of the only eye shadow palettes I had. It consists of 12 different neutral toned shades and 2 blushes. It was the perfect palette for beginners and overall a perfect palette for natural looks that can range from a no makeup – makeup look to a smokey eye. The darker colours I love to blend along my outer V for a bigger, more defined eye look and when I’m wearing a natural glowy look I effortlessly use the white shades for my inner corners.
Because of the variety of natural tones, this palette is perfect for creating the angel eyes effect too. It has 4 slightly shimmery shades that all blend together perfectly. In terms of quality, they’re not the most pigmented but in my opinion they’re just right. They have an easy build up but also it isn’t likely that you’ll apply too much on one brush and regret it afterwards either.
(The look I did above was by using light golden colour along my lid and blending a dark brown shade around my outer V).
This little 9 shade compact eye shadow palette (below) is again perfect for natural day to night appearances. The use of light and dark shades makes it accessible to either dress down or dress up. As you can tell from the photo, I’ve literally hit pan on a shade which just proves how much I use it. The black can be used as a powdered eyeliner or you can brush a natural colour all along your lid to complete your look. I personally do this with the brown as it creates a deeper effect to my crease and makes my eyes appear bigger and more vibrant.
Then for the lashes I used the Sumptuous Extreme Volume Mascara for thick, long natural lashes that last throughout the day and don’t smudge every time I blink.
If you’d like me to review any other products like this please let me know in the comments and I will try my best to do so! Also, let me know what kind of looks you’d create with this palette?
