BEAUTY || Eyes Uncovered Palette 

Happy Tuesday my lovelies, 

Eepp, it's been a while since I uploaded a makeup look, but I plan on changing that, with this and many more coming your way soon! There was no intention to purchase this palette, non what so ever! I've been collecting a few too many lately and I told myself I wouldn't need more for a while. But this, this was on offer and cost me a total of £2.99 and for 6 shades, that's pretty AWESOME in my book. 
So I'm not very good on the reviewing thing, I'm not very good with tutorials either...it's these sort of posts I try and write over and over again so bare with, if I don't make much sense. I picked this up with the idea that I could all shades to create one look and it worked wonders for me. As you can see from the swatches above, the colours have pigment to them. Four shimmer shades and two matte, which I believe works great together. Going from left to right the shades are; Parchment - Rubble - Under The Moon - Drift Wood - In A Nutshell - Eclipse. Now the exciting part, my attempt at a tutorial. I covered the base of my lid with the lightest shade PARCHMENT, then gradually blend the next two colours RUBBLE & UNDER THE MOON into the inner corner of the lid, doing this creates a highlight in the corners of my eyes. Using DRIFT WOOD I went to the centre of my lid to begin building the smokey effect. This blended with the lighter shades creates a great blend when I later added the darker shades. Using a slightly angled brush I used IN A NUTSHELL in the outer corner and crease of my eyes. I did this slowly and gradual so I didn't over do it this created the definition. Finally I used ECLIPSE on the outer corner, however when I use darker colour such as this one, I tend to only use a small amount and blend gradually again so it's not overdone. I just use a little on the lash line to create a cat eye flick effect with the shadow and continue to blend. To complete this look I smudge and blend DRIFT WOOD & IN A NUTSHELL onto the lower waterline.
For this particular look I didn't add any liner as I felt this worked perfectly, however some days if I wanted that fuller definition I possibly would add liner. 
...I'm almost obsessed with how this turned out, yes, definitely obsessed. 

And there you have it, my mini review/mini tutorial. I hope this gives you some insight as to how I smokey eye or inspiration to create a look similar to this. I'm going away in August and I've been told I can't overpack my bags, which means I'm already trying to narrow down the makeup I'll be taking. However due to the size and the selection of shades, this already made the cut and will be joining me while I'm on holiday. 
Have you tried any of the Eyes Uncovered Palettes, which is your favourite?

  2. What a bargain!! I personally prefer more pink-y toned eye shadows on me, but these sorts of palettes are perfect to pick up cheaply to try out some new looks

  3. I was so surprised at how well these cool toned shades work on your hazel (or maybe they're green? They're beautiful anyway) eyes! I have hazel eyes too and would usually go for warmer tones, but looking at these I reckon I could pull it off! And especially as the palette is so reasonably priced. This was a great post & tutorial, well done!
