It’s a bit annoying that none of the shades are named because it means I can’t explain to you how I did it, but I used a pale gold for the inner of the eye and along the lower lash line, the two camo green shades on the eye lid and blended into the matte black and the dark green. I love a smoky eye, I rock it all too often – but as soon as I saw the greens in this palette I knew I could make a slightly different version of my favourite smoky and I loved the way it turned out. I complimented it with Fleur Power MAC Blusher and Runway Coral lipstick by Clinique – coral and greens work gorgeously together for a Summery look!
For this look I used the very last row visible in the palette with the top coppery one in the next row. I mixed the soft golden brown tones together to create a gorgeously fiery red copper look. It reminds me of strong trees and bark, that’s why I called it a woodland vixen (i’m not just going mental haha.) This was my absolute favourite look of the three, and I think the most pigmented shades in the palette. The red tones really compliment my pale skin and I enhanced the look by using my Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Bedaub to really bring out the coppery shades. I finished the look with some pale pinks using Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lipstick (shade name unknown sorry) and MAC Pinch o Peach blush to warm up the cheeks. My Witch pressed powder combats any unwanted shine too.
Overall the Accessorize eyeshadows held up well, they didn’t blend as well as i’d want them to compared to some of my other eyeshadows, but they have really strong pigment and are soft and easy to use. Use them with a soft hand though otherwise they crumble in the pan and then they’re no good to anyone! I found lots of them worked really well with a pointed brush as eyeliner on the lower lash line, and held up for a good few hours. There was no fallout under my cheek and I found them easy to work with. Some of them aren’t as pigmented as the others, but with 32 to choose from, there’s so many options to create beautiful looks.
Accessorize’s Lovely Day palette retails at £8.95 from Superdrug and Accessorize.
