I came to the make-up party a bit later than most – don’t get me wrong I was interested in makeup from my teens and remember buying a few items from the Clicks sales (and hiding them from my mom) but I never really used it on a daily basis until my mid-twenties, and even now I’m not an every day make-up girl, and tend to use it more for nights out.
That being said I do see the huge benefit in using it daily – whenever I do I feel an immediate boost in confidence. My problem is time – as a mom trying to cram working & blogging into the mix and my make-up routine gets reduced to a bit of BB Cream, some mascara and lipgloss. More complicated make-up like eyeshadow never seems to happen – partly due to the aforementioned problem and also because I’m never quite sure if I’m doing it right!!
Eyeshadow can make SUCH an amazing difference to your look but it can also go horribly wrong – too many times I’ve left home looking like I’ve been in a fight… So this is where Revlon have come to my aid with their newly launched Photoready Primer & Eyeshadow Palettes.
I’m so excited about these pretty little palettes, not only are they in a gorgeous array of colour options but the fab thing is that the palette itself is laid out in the shape of an eye to help you to know exactly which colour to use wear… what a great idea! Why didn’t someone do this earlier?? Not only do the perfectly co-ordinated colours help you to eliminate the guesswork of the perfect eye make-up but the palette also comes with a primer (bottom left rectangle) that you use first to even out the lids and create a smooth canvas!
The eyeshadow is easy to blend, comes with an applicator brush and the intensity of the colour can be increased by using the eyeshadow when wet. The top coat (in the small square) adds an extra sparkly dimension!
Colour palettes featured here are:
Avant Garde (blues)
Other options available include:
I’m so excited to have some fun playing around with these colour palettes and adding more eyeshadow looks to my life! Thank you Revlon for making this a bit easier.
