Following on from last weeks post: Whats In My Kit – Eye Products Part 1: Cream Shadow and Gel Liner
, this is part 2: Powder Eyeshadows & Primers. As I said in the previous post, I have moved away from powder eyeshadow over the last couple of years and so I only keep about 4 or 5 different palettes on the go at one time now.
Above are the main ones I use at the moment. I won’t list each colour name and so on as we’d be here all day, (also because I don’t know them, other then “that deep blue one”) but I will tell you which brand they are from and so on.
I have a bunch of MAC eyeshadows, some of which are in a MAC palette and some are in a Coastal Scents palette. I have an INGLOT 10 pan palette and also a large magnetic palette from Make Up For Ever. I use this palette the most (the actual palette itself) as its magnetic and I put various pans in it for different jobs. In in right now as you can see from the above picture are some MUFE diamond eyeshadows, some loose MAC pans and some neon pans from Coastal Scents.
Additionally, I always carry at least one of the Coastal Scents 88 Pan Eyeshadow Palettes. Honestly, this always has the *exact* colour that you need when you are imagining a look, and takes up little space in my kit as well as being incredibly pigmented and good value. The above picture is of the 88 Original Palette.
The Kyrolan Aquacolors are also a staple in my kit, although they are not powder. The range of colours is just amazing and the payoff, when mixed with a little water is immense. I always have a few of these knocking around my kit depending on the job and again, they are very good value for money. Kryolan rates very highly with me in general. Their Dermacolor Concealer Palette
is never far from reach, amongst many others.
And now on to primers! Although MAC Painterly was in the previous eye products post
, it also doubles up as a primer quite frequently. I am also never without Urban Decay Primer Potion, Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch or the amazing Lemonaid by Benefit.
And so that concludes part 2! Look out for part 3 next week; Pencils, Mascara & Lashes!
