If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen this look that I posted during the week. I bought the Into the Wild palette from Diego dalla Palma earlier this week. I had been eyeing it up for a while as I thought it was such an unusual combination of quite unique shades. I found it in the M&S Beauty Hall on sale and I couldn't resist picking it up despite the fact that I have more palettes than I could probably get through in a lifetime. What can I say, I'm an addict.
This palette was part of their limited edition 2019 Cruise Collection which had beautiful tropical/safari inspired products. It's still available on their website if you fancy a look. Diego dalla Palma is an Italian brand and I've only tried one product from them before now, their Ciglione Mascara which I really liked. Italy is known for manufacturing a lot of beauty products, so many brands have products that are made there. I definitely want to try out more from this brand as they seem to have a great reputation.
I went to the launch of the Urban Decay Naked Honey palette during the week and as it's inspired by the seventies, it got me researching the makeup of that era. This look was obviously subconsciously inspired by the seventies looks I saved during the week (Jerry Hall in particular). I was incredibly impressed by how these eyeshadows performed, they're so pigmented and blend with ease. I didn't think I'd be able to do a look with all four of the shades and make it work but I love how it turned out. I also went a bit more heavy handed on the blush and bronzer than I usually would to keep with the seventies feel. I used a lip combination I hadn't tried before, the Primark PS Lip Liner in Foxy Nude which is a great warm toned nude for fair skin all over my lips and some of the Alex Steinherr X Primark Plump & Glow Lip Gloss in the centre for some dimension. I'm excited to try more looks with this palette, each shade is beautiful in its own right.
I had a few breakouts this week including a huge painful one on my chin so I brought out the bareMinerals BAREPRO Foundation and it worked a treat at covering what I wanted it to without looking too heavy. It's my go-to foundation for when I need more full coverage. I think pairing it with earthy toned colour makeup helped a lot as I avoided bringing out the redness in my skin and drawing attention to the blemishes.
