Pride Edition : Makeup & OOTD

To celebrate this weeks pride event in Newcastle I thought I would share the look I went for and a few insights on how I celebrated pride with my friends.

Unfortunately I was working during the time the pride festival was on the town moor so I missed on that part but that wasn’t stopping me celebrating on the night so as soon as I got home me and one of my housemates began to get ready to make sure we were ready for when everyone else came back. So we begin the glitter journey to how I achieved my makeup pink look. I’m going to insert some close up pictures and after the details of the products I used and links to where I got the glitter from.

Review: Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette

I’ve finally got my hands on this gorgeous eyeshadow palette! So HAPPY! Hannah, one of my housemates, had an amazing trip to the Big Apple and I couldn’t help but ask her to get me this palette on her trip. Ever since seeing it released on the Tarte website I knew I had to get my hands on it and now they finally are. But with it being an American brand that was a difficult task as I wasn’t willing to pay shipping tax and no English websites sold it to my knowledge. Down below is my review of each colour with swatches & in another blog post I’ll be looking at the different eye looks that you can do with this palette.

Okay to start, the packaging is stunning! The simple black and gold makes it look very sophisticated and a palette you would front face on your makeup stand. It comes with a handy eyeshadow look book which goes through what colours you could use to create some looks.

The first matte row is the perfect combo for a warm natural eye and i am in love with the shade ‘classic’, its the perfect all round lid shade for a base and a bonus is that its creamy and easy to blend. The shade ‘smoked’ is so pigmented however not as creamy as the over shades which made it a little harder to swatch. These colours I can see myself using daily.

For the second row I think that the shade ‘vintage’ is a perfect lid share again like ‘classic’ its so creamy. The darker shades ‘no filter’ and ‘vamp’, be careful with them in a good way they are extremely pigmented and a little goes along way.

The third row consists of more pinkish tones, ‘chic’ and ‘profesh’ are going to be beautiful together and ‘mod’ will definitely be getting used for a crease colour. I only had a slight problem with ‘drama’ that is was alittle harder to swatch as it was patchy in colour.

The fourth row is perfeccct for a warm toned smokey dark eye night out kind of look, ‘indie’ and ‘bold’ are lovely by themselves and the shade ‘punk’ is the black everyone needs in a palette.

Regarding the shimmers I was very surprised by these and in really in the best way. The first thing is the what I thought the blue shade ‘trendy’ was but it turns out to be a duo chromed shade was so unusual, I don’t own anything like this shade so I’m looking forward to trying it out. When I first swatched the shades I must admit I wasn’t impressed with how blinding they weren’t but I came back to the palette the next day and tried again and this changed my mind completely. The pictures below show this, maybe I just had to take off the first layer for the colour to come through but now I love these shades on my eye lid and can see myself using them for a long time.

I would 100% recommend this palette to anyone who loves mattes, it doesn’t have the most bright in your face kind of colours but that is what I love about this eyeshadow colour. Has anyone else tried this palette? What did you think of it?

Current Makeup Set Up

Moving house really made me think about how little storage I had for my makeup, it was all in bags that I rummaged through everyday, messy and didn’t look like I was taking care of things that I loved. To change this I searched through the trusty amazon website and found a lovely practical acrylic holder which I had to get!  (Its the first one if you type in the search bar ‘makeup holder’ for £12.99) I couldn’t find a make-up brush holder  I liked the look of online so I browsed the Wilkinsons and found a bathroom toothbrush holder with a white reflective mosaic pattern which is perfect to hold my makeup brushes in and it was only £3.00. Having a new makeup storage area and organised draws makes it so so so much easier to do make-up on a morning, I’m still not there I need to find something to put my lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes in I’ve got waaay too many to store on this one set.
