Illamasqua Fatale Eyeshadow Palette

Illamasqua Fatale eyeshadow palette £34
available online

This eye colour palette from Illamasqua has been lurking in my collection for a few months now and only now have I gotten around to testing out this gorgeous quartet of highly-pigmented shadows and love the effect they have on the eyes, worn alone or blended together. The Fatale palette comprises of four intense powder shadows with a shimmer finish and silky texture making them a pleasure to apply and blend out. For the top left clockwise we have; Bronx (a medium warm gold/copper metallic) Ensnare (a medium bright warm pink/cranberry metallic) Mystify (a dark cool brown shimmer) and Charm (a light duochrome lilac frost).

At first I was a little nervous to use these shades all together but after a little play I seem to have found a really nice way to use this daring shades to compliment each other and add a pop of colour to my lower lash line which is a look I have been loving lately. Firstly I placed Bronx all over my lid and then added Mystify through the outer corner and in the crease to darken and define the look. I then used Ensnare and and then Charm layered over the top to line my bottom lash line to give the eyes a lovely, fresh lilac finish – perfect for a fun, summertime look.

    You have beautiful skin Milly! Do you have any tips on how to keep it so nice. Mine is terrible, uneven and I suffer with breakouts which just ruin it xx
