Mixing Palettes

Lipstick: Bare Minerals Gen Nude in Mantra


This may have been waaaay too much of a heavy eye look for work, but I fancied having a play with my palettes. I do tend to stick with just one palette and a few singles when I create an eye look, however today I fancied mixing some of my current favourites together.

I used a mixture of the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette, I ♥ Makeup Mint Chocolate Palette and the Colour Pop Dream St Palette. These three palettes actually compliment each other really well. Yes, I probably could have got this look using just one item, however I did want to see how well different formulations of shadow would layer together.

Every single shadow blended together beautifully and was surprisingly long-lasting. Yes, makeup does tend to be non-existent by the end of a night shift but some of the shadows are clinging for dear life. I wouldn’t feel comfortable walking around the shops like this, but the eyes do still look okay.

Do you mix palettes regularly? If you do, which ones do you tend to mix together?

Have a lovely day, and take care.
