My makeup skills in the eye department are seriously lacking, and to that end I'm a massive fan of the simpler the better motto. When it comes to the whole shadow thing, I'm all over the whole one shade smudged all over the lid thang; it's quick, easy to master and simple enough for my poor blending abilities to cope with. And there's one palette I've been lucky enough to get a sneak preview of this month where every single shade perfectly fits the bill - the Zoeva Rose Gold Palette.
My favourite shade in the lineup - Copper is King - is a warm metallic copper that blends out beautifully over the lid (with the help of my Zoeva Crease Brush) to a cooler, almost burgundy tone, giving the impression that you've gone to a lot more trouble with the shades than you actually have. The formula of the shadows are great - extremely pigmented and blendable and all the colours, apart from the green, which I'm going to have to work out a more subtle way of using, are really wearable and pretty on the lids.
I decided to crack out this palette to do my makeup before a party the other day (so sorry the photos aren't close-ups but I hope you get the idea - I'm the one in the middle for those of you who don't know), and with my wash of smokey colour covered, the rest of my makeup looked a little like this:
NYX Taupe (as a contour)
MAC Hue (thanks Beth;))
Smudged out smokey perfection, this palette is out soon, so sorry for the teaser, but I'd definitely recommend you getting your hands when it does - definitely not one to miss out on!
