When I’m going somewhere and starting to collect makeup, often the complexity of the selection relate the palettes of shadows: I want to take all at once. Each is special to me. Usually ends the fact that leaving a minimum of two. And on the question of travelling with me “Why do you have TWO palettes?” astonished, popping eyes: “And what else? In one I like this violet shade with shimmer, the other with a matte black, like no other”. And in the end a couple of times, but the trip will take advantage of each. Eye makeup, typically the main focus in my image, so experiment with color combinations I love. And how – tell us below!
Shadow to eyelid Distortion Eyeshadow Palette, Urban Decay
A compilation about the shadows, can not do without Urban Decay palettes. This is the real holiday: updated palette with interesting shades, the original box and, as always, wonderful quality – love it! Brought her from new York in February this year and since then I take with me almost every trip. The Distortions palette – 10 colors + 5 colors-the transformers (white pigments with a variety of special effects). Indulge in all their imagination and create interesting combinations.
I like this technique: take Mind Game with a brush slightly soaked in water, so the color turns pinkish. As the bottom liner shade shade Shag. For dark brown eyes recommend to try such an option shade on a movable century matte-black Blackout, and on top of it put the purple Rogue. Get Smokey with a slight glowing effect. Alternative Rouge can become saturated shades with shimmer, Velvet, Srash Ralk Shag, First Offense – they are great “lie” in matte black and make the look more expressive. Light Mind Game and Blur can be safely applied under the eyebrow and to use instead of a highlighter. But it’s all my experiments, and for beginners in makeup in a palette held by the special lines that show how you can combine shades together.
Price: 4 200 RUB
Palette eyeshadow Chocolate, Too Faced
No, it’s not real chocolate, but fashionable and stylish palette Chocolate Bar Too Faced. But the powder of cocoa in the composition – the real!
And now about the shadows – what I like about them?
1) In 16 shades. Pale pink, cream, bronze, brown, purple, gold and 10 all different – with them you can create any makeup for each eye color. Nude day or evening smoky with this palette, everything is possible.
2) easy application, good durability and excellent feathering. Despite the fact that the shadow is dry, the eyelids are kept to 5-6 hours (after I renew for the intensity, if needed). Usually paint brushes for makeup, but if you are in a hurry, and at hand is nothing, can quickly fill the pigment on the eyelid with fingertips and still turns accurately.
3) For the chocolate flavor, of course. The smell is incredible!
4) For the original, but lightweight packaging.
Finally I will talk about what color I often use for my dark brown (or black) eyes.
Pale pink with a Champagne Truffle shimmer use as highlighter and often put under the eyebrow. It can also be spread on a movable century, and in the outer corners of the eyes add a dark (e.g., brown Gilded Ganache, Triple Fudge, Haute Chocolate).
Shades that is perfect to use solo – Marzipan, Strawberry Bob Bon, Canded Violet, Black Forest Truffle, Amaretto.
Often use for the bottom liner of the following colors: Creme Brûlée, Semi-Sweet, Hazelnut.
In addition to the palette is signature Glamour Guide where you can find three already-created image. Get inspired!

Palette Chocolate Gold, Too Faced
And this is the updated version of the previous samples: spoiler – did not disappoint. When I raised the “chocolate” cover, there was a feeling that opened the treasure chest, so brightly gleamed the shadows. Gold Chocolate Gold, fuchsia New Money, green Money Bags – the three shades that I like in the Express mode to cause solo. In a more complex makeup, they will put bright accents. The palette also includes matte shades: Cocoa Truffle, Decadent, Rollin’ in Dough, So Boujee. In the photo I use shining Rich Girl, adding in the external corners of the eyes Holla For A Dolla.
One of my options evening look: for all mobile eyelid apply New Money, in the outer corners of the eyes shade black Decadent (it is important to make a feather carefully, it takes time), in the crease for a smooth transition – purple Livin’ Lavish, in the inner corners of the eyes distribute “shining Nude” Rich Girl, the eyebrow – Drippin’ Diamonds and the lower ciliary contour highlight shade Holla For A Dolla. Comes with the manual, which also offers two options of make-up. Interesting fact – the shadows contain natural gold, and cocoa. Washed a single towel makeup remover (favorite told here), when it held pretty well.

Palette Back Talk, Urban Decay
I think many familiar with this situation, when from the airport on arrival should not go with a swollen face and bruises under his eyes, and almost “on the ball” (those who fly often on business trips, where every hour on arrival painted, take note). New UrbanDecay saves a lot of space in your bag: consists of eight eyeshadows (there are like sudovye and bright) and of the four pigments (two of highlighter and two blushes).
Shades 3Sheets (light pink), Bare (soft beige with shimmer), Curve (color ashen roses, also with shimmer) I use the solo when necessary on the run to spread the product on the eyelids (fortunately, tushuyutsya excellent). Shade (purple glitter), Attitude (fiery shimmer), WTF (matte brown) and 180 (dark brown with shimmer) – bright and saturated colors quite unusual for eye makeup. My favorite technique is to apply over the entire mobile eyelid Curve and create a fire haze at the outer corners with Attitude, mucosa to emphasize the 180-th and under the eyebrow to distribute the highlighter PartyFoul.
Now let’s talk about the pigments for the face. I really liked the cool pink CheapShot gives a blush like after hour walk in the winter woods. But DoubleTake warmer will perfectly emphasize the tan. In a palette of highlighter two – LowKey (peach) and PartyFoul (cold pink). Stable, does not crumble, are applied “on the run” (in our case – on the fly :)) – great! And it also comes with a mirror that the magnet is attached to the palette. It is easy to detach, so as not to keep packing on weight makeup. The novelty is left to chance – now it is my indispensable travel companion.
Price: 3 950 RUB.
Palette eye shadow ShapeandLight, KatVonD
This year the brand along with the store chain Sephora has come to Russia. Katherine von Drachenberg – or just kat von Dee was once filled tattoo friends, leaving school, not even dreaming of their own brand. Writing about your Hobbies two books and opening his own tattoo parlor, she thought – why not base his beauty Empire? And she is perfectly turned out: the brand has been around for more than ten years!
The first thing in my hands I got the palette. But it is the most unusual – not just for makeup, but for contouring eyes! Included is a manual that tells how to visually lift the outer corners of the eyes, how to accentuate the line of the eyelashes how to visually change the shape and make the eyes look more deep. I am particularly fond of a matte black (perfect for Smokey), and grey (I would even say, the shade of color of asphalt, sometimes use it solo or combine with a graphic black arrow). The shade of the well-shaded and give a matte finish.
Price: 3 440 RUB.
