eBay Palettes : Rainbow Palette

This palette was the one I confessed that I really wouldn't get much use out of and I simply bought it to try. I must say I am really surprised once again by the quality of the palette and the look I managed to create! I am fully self taught in make-up and I feel that this may be my most adventurous look to date.

I felt initially drawn to the purples and blues in this palette although there is a great range of nudes and blacks to play with too. I really wanted to create a smokey eye that had a little twist of colour and I'm so glad with the results! I had to use the matte brown shade as a transition shade otherwise this look could've come across a hell of a lot crazier! Blending is definitely the key with this palette.

I applied the white matte as a base in this palette as I really wanted the colours to pop and get the best colour I could out of every shade. I then ran the neutral brown and the matte purple through the crease lightly. I decided to lighten the crease by adding the pink shade which gave a great fade through to the brow bone. The shimmer purple was then patted onto the outer and inner corners to create a dramatic look and a shimmer white on the inner lid; which I applied with my finger to get the most colour pay-off. I loved the whole aesthetic of the lid and really wanted to make it even more special by creating a stand-out bottom liner by using the bright blues in the palette! I love this as an alternative going out look and think it would look great with an all black outfit! However there was lots, I mean LOTS, of fallout from the purple shades which I anticipated and created my eye-shadow look before concealing. 

Face: Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation, Boujois Healthy Mix Concealer, MUA Hydro Powder, NYX Translucent Setting Powder, Maybelline Master Sculpt Contour and Highlight Duo.

Brows: Rimmel Brow WOW Kit and BodyShop Clear Mascara.

Eyes: As Above, Loreal Super Liner, Maybelline Master Curler Mascara.

Lips: Model &Co Lip Liner and Soap & Glory 5th Avenue Lipstick.

I've really loved these eBay palettes and think everyone should give them a go! Considering they're only £2.99 each and free delivery I really think they've done well. Just remember to conceal afterwards if your using a bright or glittery eye!
