For anyone that's been following my blog, you'll know that a little over a month ago, I pretty much slated the 120 Pro Palette. But now I am back with better news. And it's all thanks to Marlena from Makeup Geek. I've been following her on YouTube and I have to say she's now my ultimate favourite YouTube makeup guru. And a couple of weeks ago, she did a 'Purple Smokey Eyes' tutorial using the 120 Pro Palette. I loved the look, and Marlena made it look so effortless. So this morning I tried it out, and I have to say I was pretty impressed with the results I came up with. I think it worked this time as I've recently bought, and fell in love with, a new eye base from Gosh Cosmetics - and boy does it work! And using Marlena's technique of patting the colour onto my lid rather than sweeping it across, fall out is practically non-existent! Marvellous!
Here's the video from Marlena:
As you can see, she makes it look easy and guides you through every single step.
Here are the colours I used:
Red Circle: Highlight
Orange Circle: Pink for the crease colour
Yellow Circle: Used this on top of my base in place of Marlena's NYX jumbo pencil
Green Circle: Main lid colour
Blue Circle: Darker lid colour for outer edge of the eye
Purple Circle: Black powder to darken the outer edge and line the lashes
Here are my results:
I strongly suggest you take a look at Marlena's website and follow her on YouTube, she's truly an inspiration :]
Until next time,
