Get Ready With Me: Morphe 35p Palette

Sunday, 26 June 2016


After a great reaction to my 'Get Ready With Me' on Snapchat yesterday I thought I would do a detailed step-by-step post of how I did my makeup yesterday. I recently purchased the Morphe 35p Palette from Beauty Bay and I'm seriously impressed with the quality of the shadows considering the palette was such good value. I'll have a full review of the palette up in two weeks or so when I've tried a good few of the shadows and played around with it.

1. Eye Primer: I used an Elf primer that I've had for ages & I set that with the white eyeshadow from the palette.

2. Transition shade: I used the shade marked above as my transition & I blended it into my crease & just up to the brow bone with my Blank Canvas E25.

3. Defining the crease: I placed that deeper purple shade on the outer corner of my eye and blended it using small circular motions with the Blank Canvas E26. Keep the shade concentrated in that area of the eye, making sure to not blend it up as far as the transition shade - it will just look messy. 

4. The statement shade: The most statement of the shades in the palette - all of the sparkle!! I packed this all over the lid using a flat shader brush (I just used the one from the Naked palettes as they pick up product really well)

5. Repeat step 3: Just to darken up the look & intensify it a bit more - This time I used the Blank Canvas E32 which is a tapered blending brush so it's great for detailed blending.

6. Repeat step 2: I always work backwards once I've applied my eyeshadow to my lid so I follow up by blending another small bit of the transition shade with the same E25 brush.

7. Concealer: I apply two concealers because my skin is in an awful state after the Leaving Cert :-(  I used Catrice Camouflage Cream  & Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer - I'll have a post of my top 5 concealers next week so stay tuned for more details about those.

8. Foundation: L'oreal True Match - I'll also have a post up about my favourite foundations :-)

9. Brows: Sleek Brow Kit

10. Liquid Highlight: Mac Prep & Prime Highlighter in 'Light Boost' & I blend it with a damp Real Techniques sponge. I set it with Bourjois Java Rice loose powder.

11. Back to the eyes: I then went back in with the transition shade on my lower lash line with the Blank Canvas E23. To finish off the eyes I popped a bit of Mac Extra Dimension eyeshadow in 'Ready To Party' all over the lid to make the makeup pop. I used the Blank Canvas E24 brush to apply it. And lastly, a bit of Bourjois volume 1 second mascara.

12. Contour, blush & highlight: I used the Pippa Palette {Review coming this week!}

13. Lipstick & liner: Mac 'Soar' lipliner & Mac Mineralize Rich Lipstick in 'Pure Pout' 

What do you think of this look?

And have you tried any Morphe products?
