Five Neglected Palettes: Winter Edition

Neglected Palettes Winter

I had a lot of fun posting about my five neglected palettes that I was going to use more during the fall. That post was inspired by Chelle of Makeup Your Mind and her YouTube Video on the subject. I ended up doing a few makeup looks for the blog using my fall selections so I thought I’d pick five new ones to focus on for winter. I by no means exclusively used these palettes during the fall but  I did make a point to reach for them more often. So let’s take a look at what I’m going to make a better effort to use this winter! It’s a perfect time to revisit old favourites that have become neglected as this month’s theme for the Canadian Beauty Bloggers is Shop Your Stash! Continue reading

Neglected Palette Makeup Look: Morphe 35O Palette

Morphe 35O

Another week, another neglected palette makeup look! This week I’m using the Morphe 35O Palette which was another one mentioned in my Five Neglected Eyeshadow Palettes post. When I see the Morphe 35O Palette I instantly think of a warm orangey makeup look, so since I have done that before many times, I thought I’d focus on the brown shades in the palette to switch things up a bit.

Neglected Palette Makeup Look: Colourpop Hi-Maintenance Palette

Colourpop Hi-Maintenance Palette

I’ve got another makeup look for you today using one of the palettes I talked about in my Five Neglected Eyeshadow Palettes post. Today I’m using the Colourpop Hi-Maintenance Palette. I think part of the reason this palette gets neglected is because it’s a quad. Nothing against quads but my general preference is bigger palettes. I like having lots of options to avoid repeating the same look with it over and over. However, it is a great palette – I love the colours in it and the formula is great. It deserves more use! Side note: I could have sworn I had posted a look using the gold shade previously which is why I used the pinks… however… in looking at my previous post about this palette… well… it’s pretty darn similar. But, I’ll share it anyhow! Continue reading

Neglected Palette Makeup Look: Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

In September I posted about some makeup palettes that were getting some serious neglect that I was going to make a point of using more this fall. My plan was to follow that up with a makeup look using each palette so this month I am going to work on doing just that! Today I’m featuring the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. I typically do a warm and orangey or a pink makeup look using this palette so this time I decided to do something a bit different. Continue reading

Five Neglected Eyeshadow Palettes

Neglected Eyeshadow Palettes

After an evening of cruising YouTube, a video by fellow Canadian Beauty Blogger and superb YouTuber, Chelle of Makeup Your Mind caught my eye. These days a unique video topic on YouTube is pretty far and few between but somehow she always manages to keep it fresh! The video that caught my eye this time was her 5 Neglected Palettes I’m Using This Autumn video. If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it. It really got me thinking about my neglected eyeshadow palettes and which ones I am going to make an effort of using more this fall.
