*Kryolan Shimmering Vision Interferenz Palette*
I have had this palette for a while now but I haven’t had the chance to sit down and have a play with it.
It’s a cream based make-up that is aimed for use as an eyeshadow, but they’re safe for use on the body as well.
They are all shimmery and the pigment is pretty good. They take a couple of swipes for a good opacity but taking into consideration that they are cream - its pretty good.
This palette is the only colour combination it comes in, but it covers all the necessary colour groups.
You have the top row which are the cool toned colours; White, Silver, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Purple and Gun Metal Charcoal.
The middle row are the warm toned colours; Yellow, Gold, Bronze, Copper, Bright Orange and Brown.
And then the last row contains colours including; Light Rose Pink, Red, Blush Pink, Light Purple, Teal and then Green.
I’ve tested these colours on the eyelids on their own and they look beautiful, BUT we mustn’t forget that these are cream and this means they do crease when worn alone.
When worn with an eyeshadow over the top they do grip to the skin a little better, but again, once the skin warms the product they will crease in the socket.
I’ve found over the years that less is more, and that if you apply the product to the lower part of the eyelid and drag the excess upwards (and do-not apply it close to the socket-line) then it wears better.
My favourite cream eyeshadows are Maybelline 24HR Tattoo Eyeshadows - these stick to the eye without creasing and the pigment pay-off is immense!
But the shimmer and glow of these Kryolan ones are hard to beat, it’s just a shame they aren’t durable like the Maybelline ones.
Overall all, I do like this palette and LOVE the colours!!! I would recommend it to makeup artists for photo shoots as you can keep an eye on the product and do touch-ups as necessary. AND it would be a fab product to place on the face & body in other areas, such as the cheekbones for avant garde looks!
But I don’t think this palette is suited as an eyeshadow as its too creamy to stay in place. Follow me: www.facebook.com/showmemakeup www.youtube.com/smiles2310
Spring is upon us!
I’ve created a tutorial with lips based on the oranges that we are seeing on the runways at the moment, and teamed that with its complimentary colour - Blue!
This to me is Spring and Summer!
A look that is super quick and easy to recreate. I’ve used Bobbi Brown gel liner in Ink Black to line the top lid. For the waterline I used Sue Moxley ‘Famous’ blue eye pencil. And under the lower lashes I used a shimmery eyeshadow from the same ‘Famous’ range, in a frost blue.
New makeup tutorial up on my channel - Sultry Bronzed Eyes

Ideal for summer evenings, or on holiday for that added sun-kissed summer glow!

One of the colourful makeup looks I created on today shoot for the Loreal Colour Trophy.
For the base I used Kryolan Ultra Cream Foundation palette, and I set it using M&S translucent powder.
I used a mixture of highly pigmented eyeshadows from Grimas, Kryolan & SugarPill Cosmetics -
A tip when you want colours to really pop on the skin is to use a white base before applying the eyeshadow.
NYX jumbo pencil in Milk is a great product to place down first, then blend it out & then place the eyeshadows on top of it.
It will help enhance the true vibrancy of the eyeshadow.
I place some gel liner across the top lid - Bobbi Brown Ink Black.
Then lastly I buffed some Black eyeshadow around the eye to create some depth.
I’m still just getting used to actually using Instagram for the purpose of social media as opposed to just filtering images as I did in the past - SO, if you’re on there, feel free to check mine out if you love makeup!

Another Valentines Day makeup tutorial for you!
This look has a less heavy base than my previous tutorial - the Kim Kardashian inspired tutorial.
And the eye makeup on this look has a satin and shimmer finished to the shadow, whereas the KimK makeup is matte nudes.

I’ve been having a play with the 3 new colours from SuperStar Face & Body Paints!!
Royal - Peacock - Cyclamen
WOW… They have a metallic finish & are really creamy in consistency - like none other I’ve used before.
My particular favourite is the Greeny Teal shade. And what impressed me the most with this shade is the fact it just washes off with soap and water with Z E R O staining!!
They come in 16g & 45g pots.
I can’t stress enough how highly pigmented these paints are - And the price for SuperStar paints are just phenomenal.
You can pay out fortunes on paint if you’re a makeup artist or face & body artist, but these are so affordable and are a
‘must have’ in any kit!
If I was testing out these colours against a high-priced brand unknowingly, I can bet you I would guess these to be the pricier of the two just because of the high quality.
All of their paints are creamy in consistency & you only need one coat to achieve full opacity.
The Face Painting Shop has generously given me a 10% discount code for all my followers to use against the purchase of all or any of the 3 new colours by SuperStar!
