VALENTINES DAY LOOK ♥️

Happy Valentine’s Day my pretties. Even though it was yesterday but if you’re in a different county it maybe today! But my darling partner came home on his work lunch break holding a beautiful red rose and a box of chocolates for me. He’s so sweet, I’ve eaten the chocolate already which is probably no surprise to anyone but I had one of those moments where I didn’t realise the box was empty and I reached in for more and my body was overcome with a feeling of sadness/regret/embarrassment/shock. Do you know the feeling?

Regardless I created a Valentine’s Day inspired makeup look! I’ll list down what products I used down below and link the site where I purchased them for you all! Let me know what you think in the comments! 💋

I created a look using this adorable little palette for you all so keep reading if you want to read my thoughts and I promise I wont mention projectile vomiting again… Starting from now…

TOOFACED CHOCOLATE CHIP EYESHADOW PALETTE

Does anyone elses family do Kris Kringle? I think that’s how its spelt or also known as ‘Secret Santa’? Well for anyone that doesn’t know, everyone puts there name in a hat and who evers name you get, you have to buy them a present and not let them know you have them. I got my sister in law and I got her,Velvet teddy mac lipstick. Aren’t I the best! BUT her boyfriend had me and I 100% know she helped him out with the present because he got me the ‘Too Faced Chocolate Chip Palette’! Hahaha does he know what Mecca is? Regardless. Thank you steven!

This palette is super cute! Its of course chocolate scented and while putting this on, my daughter legit came over and asked me if I was eating chocolate and if she could have some. Which isn’t an unusual question because I will quite frequently hide and eat chocolate but that just helps describe how good it smells!

They picked 11 shades out of the original ‘Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette’ and turned them into mattes to create this little guy! I love the colours in this and I love how it has more then one transition shade. I wasn’t quite sure about the cool toned shades in this as they are foreign to me but they are so pretty and can definitely see myself playing with them when I grow some balls!

26913613_10156017712234137_1874192534_n
Swatches left to right, White Chocolate, Matte Gilded Ganache, Triple Fudge, Matte Marzipan, Semi-Sweet, Strawberry Bon Bon, Matte Candid Violet, Matte Hazelnut, Matte Crème Brulee, Matte Cherry Cordial, Matte Champagne Truffle.

They swatched so well and the pigment was definitely there! I was a bit disappointed in the shade, ‘Matte Gilded Ganache’ and ‘Triple Fudge’ as they weren’t as Khaki as they looked in the pan. For some reason while swatching these I liked my finger, maybe because I was hungry and sleep deprived but I shit you not they taste like chocolate!!! You could eat these but I wouldn’t suggest doing it hahaha!

I did a eyeshadow look so you can see how it is on the eyes!

Eyeshadow look using the ‘TOO FACED CHOCOLATE CHIP PALETTE’

I used the shade, ‘Matte Crème Brulee’ in the crease and blended the colour up just above the brow bone. I then dipped into the shade, ‘Matte Cherry Cordial’ and packed that into my inner and outer corner. I blended that in and dragged it up into my crease leaving the centre of my lid. I then packed the shade, ‘Strawberry Bon Bon’ onto my lid for a matte halo eye look! I then used the shade, ‘Semi-Sweet’ on my lower lash line!

26941195_10156017721664137_1321967998_n

The shades I used were a lot cooler toned then I anticipated and they were a bit tricky to blend out then I thought they would be! I had trouble getting the colours seem less just on the outer part where I blended them. I’m not sure if its because they were a bit chalkier of an eyeshadow then I’ve used in the past!

BYS BERRIES VS ABH MODERN RENAISSANCE SHOW DOWN!

Happy Thursday dolls! How has everyone’s day been? I’m actually so exhausted. School holidays are kicking my ass. My kids are well behaved but then go from 1 to 100 and it lasts all fucking day! I spend all day cleaning then by tea time its fucked again! I also could be tired because I’ve been sitting up all night watching Ultimate Beast Master on Netflix! Its so good! Its like Ninja Warrior but way more dramatic and hilarious!

I’m actually so excited about uploading this post and when this idea popped into my mind I was like ‘YESSS IM A FUCKING GENIUS!!!’. I mean, this has no doubt been done before but I’m actually so happy with how it turned out!!!

So, today I bring you, BYS BERRIES VS ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS MODERN RENAISSANCE PALETTE! I will do one eyeshadow look, my right eye will be ABH Modern Renaissance and my left, BYS Berries! Its always been said that the berries Palette by BYS is the perfect dupe for the ABH Palette but I’ve never really tried a look to confirm this until now! Not to mention the price difference from the two! So keep on reading if you want to see how this turned out!

Left, BYS Berries Palette. Right, ABH Modern Renaissance Palette.

As you can see in the photo above, both palettes have very similar colours but in different order and lay outs. I’ve clearly had my BYS Palette longer too! But how similar are they!!!

BYS Berries is left and Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance is right. Personally the ABH is slightly more pigmented and the shimmer shades are brighter but its pretty close! Id also like to mention that I feel like Berries Palette has more of a purple reflect to the shades then the ABH.

So when creating this look I used, ABH on the left and Berries on the right and I used the closest shades for each step and I’ll go through with you what I used and swatch comparison of each colour.

For my transition colour I used in the ABH, ‘Raw Sienna’ and BYS I used ‘Toffee’. Now as you can see in the photo below, the ABH shade is much more pigmented so I had to build up the colour on the BYS side but we got there!

26696914_10156001789609137_2018446980_n
Left, ABH shade Raw Sienna. Right, BYS shade Toffee.

I then went in with the shade ‘Cyprus Umber’ from the ABH and ‘Shaded’ from the BYS. I used these shades in my inner and outer corner for some depth to create a halo eye! Once again I had to build up the BYS shade slightly to match the ABH side but these colours are buildable I found!

26696625_10156001789449137_1964440449_n
Left, ABH shade ‘Cyprus Umber’. Right BYS shade ‘Shaded’.

For the centre of my lid on the ABH side I used ‘Primavera’ and BYS side I used ‘Glow’. The shades together there isn’t much difference but I did find the BYS shade was much more buttery! I had no trouble applying these to each lid and didn’t need fix plus for added intensity! I also used these shades for my inner corner highlight!

Left, ABH shade ‘Primavera’. Right BYS shade ‘Glow’.

For the lower lash line I went in with the same transition colours as above, on the ABH side ‘Raw Sienna’ and BYS, ‘Toffee’. Then over top of that and closer to the lash line I went in with ‘Red Ochre’ on the ABH side and ‘Royalty’ on the BYS side! Slight more pigmentation on the ABH shade as you can see below!

Left, ABH shade ‘Red Ochre’. Right, BYS shade ‘Royalty’.

So this is the final look! ABH right and BYS left! I cant tell a difference at all! Can you guys?? The BYS Berries palette is a ABH Dupe! Lets be real! Besides having to pack more colour on the BYS side it worked and I even asked my partner if there was any difference in the two and he couldn’t see it! MIND BLOWN!

So I hope you all enjoyed my little experiment! I had so much fun creating this look for you guys and I’m super stoked with how it turned out! Also a little side note!
