Do you ever get bored of using the same products over and over again? We sure do. This is why it is extremely important to be creative with your makeup. If you would like to be a little thrifty and nifty with your makeup, we have just the thing you would love. We have rounded up all the different ways in which you can use a single eyeshadow palette to for various makeup needs.
This is a great way to experiment as well as save on tonnes of luggage space when travelling. We have chosen the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Nude Beach because it has beautiful shades that would look lovely on every skin tone.
As a highlighter
While getting ready to go out post work, imagine the horror of realising that you have forgotten your favourite highlighter at home. Fortunately for you, shade number 3, from the palette will come to your rescue. This shimmery golden eyeshadow can easily double up as a dewy highlighter that will make your skin look fresh.
As a wet eyeliner
The fashion runways are full of models and celebrities sporting various coloured eyeliners. But if you do not have one, don’t lose heart, as you can make one for yourself using this eyeshadow palette. Sprinkle some water on an angled eyeshadow brush and dip it in the shade no. 4 for beautiful purple eyeliner that complements a range of eye looks.
As a blush
If you are someone who likes to experiment with their shades of blushes, this one trick you are absolutely going to love. After you are done with applying your base makeup, just pick up the shade nos. 2 onto a fluffy, blush brush and sweep it all over your cheeks for a super soft rosy or peachy glow.
As a contour
Contouring helps to enhance your cheekbones and helps achieve a chiselled jawline. You must pick a shade that’s a couple shades darker than your skin tone. For this reason, we suggest use the shade no. 5 to help achieve the correct shade intensity. Use a contour brush to sweep it up to the temples and into the hair line.
As a metallic lipstick
Metallic lipsticks are here to stay and you can create your own customised shade using this lovely eyeshadow palette. You can use the shade no. 1 as a metallic lipstick before stepping out for brunch with your girlfriends. Simply mix with a bit of Vaseline to give to help it glide better on to lips and stay longer.
