I absolutely adore the Makeup Revolution Shimmer Bricks, in particular the gorgeously pigmented colours in Rose Gold. But due to my very pale skin, I can’t really use it as a highlight or bronzer as the shades are just too dark for me. It does however make an excellent eyeshadow palette and at only £3, it might just be the most pigmented and shimmery palette I own. So I decided to play around and see what I could come up with.
I’m not quite sure why I’m so pale here, I’ve been a bit under the weather and I’m also trying out a new to me foundation which I was matched for in store. Oh well, if I’m going to get away with looking like a ghost, it’s going to be in the month of October! I might have to go to town with the bronzer next time! I was also having one of those days where I hated every single selfie I took of myself, so I picked 2 photos which showed the look best.
I used the orange shade all over the lid with a hint of the reddish shade along my crease. I then added a little definition to my eyes by applying the brown shade to the outer corners. The lightest, highlighting shade looks super pretty in the inner corners and I also applied a little to my lash line to try and soften the look. The shades are SO pigmented, I don’t think I could wear all the shades at once for a day look. They would however be absolutely fantastic for a party or festival though! But I felt very autumnal when wearing them and it did lift my mood despite my terrible cold.
Do you sometimes use makeup products for different things other than their intended purpose?
