Weekly Work Look #2: A Touch of Spring

Another week, another work look! Yay! I'm really pleased you all liked the concept of this series, I just hope I can continue to come up with looks that aren't too samey!
So this week I swatched and reviewed the MUA Pretty Pastel's palette and as I always like to do a look with the palettes I review to try and show how they perform, I thought what better opportunity! 










 I kept the lid pretty neutral, with liner as always (although this look would look nice without too!) and used a matte brown eyeshadow in the crease (I used MAC Moleskin but Urban Decay Buck/Naked would also work!) I find with these shimmery pearly eyeshadows, it can be easy to go overboard on frost, so the matte brown keeps everything nice and wearable! I then added a pop of the cute mint green shade under the eye, following the shape of the wing. I think this adds a nice pop of colour, really brightens the eye and looks fresh faced and very "spring" like! 

First shade for brow highlight, second all over the lid, third shade as the minty green under the lash line.

I hope you liked this look and will maybe even try it out yourself!

  1. Love this! The mint shade underneath the eye is lovely. I wish I put more effort into my work make up but I always end up sleeping in instead haha. xx

    1. Haha I think its because I work nights, I don't seem to be in a rush to get ready as I don't have "mornings" as such! I get to spend a little bit more time on it :)

  4. The contrast between the lash line/lid shades is lovely. I never really bother with eyeshadow on a work day (mostly because it takes me so damn long to get ready as it is) so I give credit to you :)

  17. I find most of the shadows from the pastel palette really chalky and they just come out white. This look is very pretty though! xx

    1. Ah thats a shame you didn't get on with it, I found it was OK pigmentation and definitely needed a good sticky base to shine!
