And welcome to the first of my lovely new feature: FOTD Friday. (For those of you who don’t know: FOTD stands for Face Of The Day.)

On Monday I wrote a review for Makeup Revolution’s amaaazing 144 Ultimate Eyeshadow Collection Palette. It’s my new baby, cost me a grand total of £10 and offers a choice of 144 (yes, 144!) fabulous shades.

Now, usually, I’d probably use about 6 of these colours and ignore all the others. But I thought it’d be quite fun to challenge myself to use every single one of them over the coming months (years?).

So here we go.

I think I’m a bit in love with this look.

It’s a bit bolder than I usually go for, but I was wearing all black at the time and felt like a vampire vamp look was what I fancied. And I actually really like how it turned out! Pretty and and sexy all at the same time, and absolutely perfect for Autumn.

I’m definitely going to be keeping this one in mind for Christmas Party season!

These are the three shades I used from the Ultimate palette.

The furthest one on the right is in my inner corner, the bottom one is covering my eyelid and the top one is on and under the outer corner of my eye.


Concealer: Collection’s Lasting Perfection Concealer in 01 Fair.
Foundation: NONE. (Cos I was feeling braaave…)
Eyebrows: L’Oreal’s Brow Artiste eyebrow pencil in Blonde.
Eyeliner: Collection’s Extreme 24h Felt Tip liner in Black.
Mascara: No. 7’s Exceptional Definition mascara (review coming soon cos I’m flipping in love with this stuff!)
Lipstick: Kate Moss for Rimmel in 107 (an Autumnal gem).

  • Love this! Glad you are back into beauty blogging as I am sure your recommendations will be fab. I need to get on the make up rev bandwagon – I really want to try some in store but every superdrug I go into never has them!! The colours really remind me of some I have in a sleek palette that I must get out again xx

    • Thank you Suze! Isn’t it fab? I’ve seen so many people rocking this colour lately. It just works for pretty much everyone! :) xx

  • You’re right, this is perfect for the holiday season! Love that lip colour in particular, wish I was brave enough to wear that shade.



    • BE BRAVE MARTA! :) why not try it with a plainer eye, maybe just a slick of black eyeliner and mascara? I just stalked your blog profile and I really think it would suit you :) xx

  • A+ for the look. I love pink on the eyes and those shadows are really pigmented BTW. :-) Gorgeous!
