Here are the swatches of the new Coastal Scents ‘Revealed 2’ palette!
As you may have seen on other posts & reviews on this eyeshadow palette, it’s a great dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette.
It contains both matte & shimmer eyeshadows, as well as light & dark shades.
My previous post is of my tutorial using this palette, so do check that out if you’re interested in see what this palette can do!
How to fix a broken eyeshadow!!
I have a more in-depth tutorial on this process on my YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/smiles2310
*Break up the remaining powder eyeshadow
*Pour in some IPA (alcohol 99%) and mix to a paste
*Cover with some fabric or tissue, and press down on the eyeshadow pan using something of a similar size; this will soak up any surplus IPA and leave a nice print on top of the eyeshadow
*Leave for a couple of hours to dry out!

Younique Moonstruck Minerals Pigment
I was sent these two pigments to try, and I have to say I really like them.
The two colours I received are ‘Curious’ and ‘Confident’
I particularly love Curious as its a beautiful iridescent Opal shade. And being as it is iridescent, when the light reflects off of the product it gives off a subtle Lilac / Pink appearance.
Usually with pigments I find they can be a little overpowering and often with this kind of tone they diminish any base colour they are placed over.
But this Younique Curious pigment is quite sheer which I am a massive fan of. You could place this pigment over any eyeshadow base and it will simply add an iridescence to the colour as opposed to covering it up and making it look Silver - which most other brands usually do.
The other shade, ‘Confident’, is like an Antique Gold colour. Again, very beautiful when the light hits it, the Gold pigment reflects wonderfully and is so eye-catching.
This is strong enough to be worn alone or over a dark eyeshadow colour such as rich dark Brown or a Black, for added depth & dimension.
The pay off of this particular shade is extremely good. You only need a small amount to gain full opacity.
If you wore this alone you may find it would crease in the socket line after a while as a lot of pigments do-so due to their texture, so I would advise using a good eye primer beforehand.

They have a wide range of colours available in both shimmers and matte colours - 15 shades in each category.
Practicing with some Purple for tomorrow’s photo shoot!
It’s all about the pout, it enhances the gradient I’ve created - that’s my excuse ;)
To create this lip I coloured in the entire surface top & bottom with NYX jumbo pencil in ‘Milk’
Then I took Sugar Pills Purple eyeshadow to outline the lips.
Using a clean flat brush, I pulled the purple down towards the centre of the lips, and upwards on the bottom lip to meet the middle.
On the centre I placed Sugar Pills Pink eyeshadow and blended it into the Purple.
Once I had a nice gradient, I took a white eyeshadow & just patted it into the very centre of the lips.
I used concealer to clean up around the edges and make the colour really stand out.
I received these eyeshadow samples from Sigma Beauty today, and I absolutely loved the Coppery Peach shade called ‘Reveal’
So, I decided to have a play, and I created a cut crease using the darkest shade ‘Eiffel’ to contrast against this beautiful colour! Shame the photo doesn’t do it justice.
I love nude eyeshadows, with a softly defined socket & a hint of shimmer on the lid. It’s the best way to create fresh looking eyes without looking like you’re wearing tons of eyeshadow.
I used Honey Lust mixed with All That Glitters, both by MAC, on the lid up to the socket.
And on the centre of the lid, I placed a touch of Shroom over the top of those colours, also by MAC - this makes the eye appear larger.
Using a Brown gel liner as opposed to a Black one is so much softer. Especially on a mature eyes.
To softly define the socket, I used a matte Brown eyeshadow by Louise Young.
I prefer to use a matte Brown as this sinks the socket where you place the colour, meaning you can create any eye shape you wish.
If you were to use a shimmery Brown it would reflect light, which pulls that area forward, defeating what you are trying to achieve.

I had a play this morning with some Lit Cosmetics glitter in ‘Beach Baby’.
I used a cream eyeshadow by Illamasqua called ‘Intrude’, to define the socket like crease, and I used Anastasia Beverley Hills ‘Brow Wiz’ to define my brow.
I also applied their highlighter ‘Duality’ on my brow bone to make the brow appear cleaner & enhance its shape.
To line my upper & lower lid, I used my Black liquid liner by Lime Crime in ‘Quill’.
