Mermaid Eyes

I was so late on the bandwagon with the 120 colour palette, but a couple of months ago I finally got round to getting one. After playing around with the colours a little bit and testing them to see the colour pay off, I was really pleased with it to say that it was so cheap off eBay! 

120 colour palette off eBay £6.45

I played around for a few days with my palette and eventually ended up with this look. I'm not really one to wear colour eye shadows (I'm more of a neutrals girl, that's probably why it took me so long to pick the palette up) and it will probably take me a while to feel comfortable wearing colours I think, but I really like this eye.

This is literally the total opposite look than what I would normally go for, but I think it turned out pretty well to say I was only experimenting! The colours I used are circled below:

The second blue shade in used all over the lid. The one on the far right in the crease and the one on the left used to brighten up and add a bit of shimmer to the lid once blended.

First off, I primed my eye lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion, as always, and applied the three eye shadows and blended them. I then added the colour below the lashes as well as adding a highlight in the inner corner. I used BarryM Kohl Pencil on my tightline, Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner to do my winged liner and finished off with Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama mascara. I think this palette is great for creative looks or parties where your make up needs to be really out there! 

Have you tried out the 120 palette? What is your favourite look to do using it?
I hope you enjoyed this post.
