Week 7 - Essence 'Nudes' Eyeshadow Palette

This eyeshadow Palette was bought for me as a stocking filler for Christmas and I've come to love it already! One of the things I look forward to most about my days off, is spending my mornings doing my makeup and testing out new tutorials I've watched on YouTube. My morning routine when I'm not at work starts with checking my social media whilst I wake myself up, then before jumping in the shower I wash my face with Garnier Daily Energising Gel Scrub and brush my teeth with Pearl Drops 4D whitening toothpaste. I then use the Body Shop Vitamin E Eye cream around my eyes and Vaseline Moisturiser over my face and neck, and whilst I wait for my creams to set in I'll decide on what look I want to go for. Lately, this eyeshadow palette has become the base for every look - which is usually just a basic smokey eye as that's about all I can manage. Ha. 

The palette comes with 8 different shades, ranging from a pale cream to a deep brown. There are various shades that have a shimmer or metallic look to them, which creates more of a glamorous evening look. For the look in the photo below, I started with the palest colour over the entire eye lid, then applied the pale shimmer shade in the corners of the eye to brighten the eye even further. Next I applied the mid brown shade to the outer corners of the eye and the dark matt brown into the crease of the eye, and then of course - blended! Now, I am NO expert when it comes to eyeshadow, but I have found that the more times I've done this look, the smoother it looks.

This Eyeshadow palette was bought from Wilkinson's and it cost just £4. I can honestly say that for the price, these eyeshadow are the best quality I have ever found.. taking into account the 8 different shades. The colour is super pigmented and extremely long lasting, so it's perfect for a whole day of shopping or a night out with the girls. You can create a number of different looks including pale and natural, dark and smokey or super shimmery if your off to a glamorous party. Please, give this palette a go and let me know your thoughts on which eyeshadow palettes are your favourites!
