I picked up the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette last month when I was in Paris and I have to say, I have been heavily using it since I got home. As in, it has not left the top of my vanity this entire time as I have been using it almost every day. It is a simple neutral palette but I’ve seen it pop up so much on blogs and YouTube over the years that when I finally saw it in person, I had to pick it up. I find it to be a very well-rounded palette with lots of potential. I’ve been challenging myself to get outside the box with my makeup this year and this palette and I’ve been able to create a variety of looks with this palette.
The Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette’s packing is sleek and made up of cardboard with a magnetic closure. It’s quite thin which I think would make it excellent for travel. It includes 10 different shades which include matte, metallic and satin finishes.
One of my goals for this year is to experiment more with makeup and really work on improving my eye makeup game. Winged eyeliner is definitely a component of this, so be prepared to see more wings! This makeup look is from Sunday and the motivation behind for me is a little trip down memory lane. Sunday was, as you all know, was the Super Bowl. Sports are not my thing, I think it’s great that people are into watching them but I’ve just never had any desire to get into it. However, it did get me thinking that the last football game I watched was when I was in high school when I would regularly go watch my school’s team, the Hammarskjold Vikings, with my friends. Some of my best and worst memories were at those games so today I’m sharing with you the red and gold (our school colours) makeup look I created inspired by these memories.
After sharing a glittery makeup look last week using the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in the shade Glamrock last week, I was inspired to use it again. This time though, I wanted to use it as a pop of glitter in an eye makeup look that would combine both cool tones and warm tones. I knew that my brand new Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette was up for this task. I don’t often blend cool tones and warm tones but after creating this look, I am questioning past practices because I am in love with how this look turned out! I’m also questioning why the heck I don’t do winged eyeliner more often, but enough of me gabbing about the look, let’s take a look at it, shall we?
