I'm It's that time of year where everyone starts preparing to go back to uni, college or school. It's always the best time to get organised again and to buy cute stationary (any excuse!)

I've put together a little post to help guide you through some points that always helped me.

Sunday 7 August 2016

One thing I always find is missing in my make up collection is a good nude eyeshadow palette. I always find it difficult finding day to day colours that work with every outfit. I was on the look out for a palette which could offer me neutral bases and strong pigmented colours so sharpen up my crease.

I wanted a mix of golden tones, warm chocolate browns and muted pinks and purples. I wasn't asking for much hey?

I've seen so many around but when I swatch them the colour doesn't look as pigmented or they crease and so I fall out of love with them as quickly as I fell in love.

That was until I found two new palettes on my latest trip to Boots. These two are compact palettes so ideal to throw in your make up bag and can be used on the go. Perfect for holidays!

Th first one is by Collection. A brand I've been absolutely loving recently. Their products are all amazing quality and the price is absolutely unbeatable. Their eyes uncovered palette comes in 3 differ colour options. Nude bronze, nude grey and a nude palette. I picked the nude bronze palette as I felt this had all of the colour options I wanted in my collection.

From left to right the colours are;

The Ivory shade is a matte colour. Ideal for use all of the lid whilst the other 5 shades are all a shimmer colour these are perfect for creating a sharp cut crease or a smokey eye. 

The palette also comes with a handy brush. The only thing I can say would be useful would be to add a mirror so you can use the palette on the move.

This palette was only £3.99 so it was definitely a steal and I can't argue with the price and quality of these colours.

The second palette I picked up has to be my favourite. It's the sleek palette. Another brand I've been seeing and hearing a lot more about and I can definitely see why! I picked up the Anew day 430 palette.

This palette has 12 shades. 7 shimmer shades and 5 matte shades. These shadows are super pigmented and glide onto your kids feeling so silky smooth. The colours range from nudes, golds, browns and muted nudes and mauves. It's the perfect palette to create multiple looks to match any outfit or event.

10.Carpe diem

This palette also comes with a brush and a mirror the full size of the palette making it easier for make up on the move or for touch ups throughout the day. This to me is the perfect palette to take on holiday as the shimmer shades are perfect to glisten in the sun and with the colour options means you'll only need to pack the one palette.

This palette was £7.99 from boots and can't wait to try some of their other palettes.
