I fully intended to get back on track with the regular blog posts this month, having some pre-wrote and everything! Then a family member became very unwell and hospitalised, the day before I were due to go into hospital for my induction! With a crazy start to parenting I just haven’t had the time to get back on track over here, though I’m hoping that may change soon as I settle fully into some kind of routine, this month’s beauty bingo challenge with AyR Galaxy seemed like a good place to start!
The rules are simple…
1. Pick your palette – I’ve chosen the Make-Up Revolution London 144 Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette for today’s post.
2. Cut out small paper pieces numbered and lettered according to the columns and rows in your chosen palette.
3. Separate the pieces into rows and columns then proceed to choosing five from each, this will determine your Bingo coordinates! Mine are as follows:
B – C8, R4
I – C6, R5
N – C7, R7
G – C12, R6
O – C9, R9
4. Get creative! You must use all five colours. Extra products can of course be used to perfect the complete look such as eye liner and mascara, so long as the chosen shadows are out to play!
For the final three months of this year I’m back to using my MURL eyeshadow palette, I’d originally set out to get this look complete and ready prepared around a month ago, alas my camera had other ideas, as the battery died JUST as I were about to photograph my coordinate swatches! Looking at the colours swatched on my arm got me feeling so enthused, too. The colours definitely look much more appealing swatched rather than in the palette as the different undertones pop and show up considerably better, you really don’t get the same effect when viewing the shadows in the pan, they seem kind of – flat. I feel my exhilaration towards this months creation were well warranted, no greens in sight and the I and O colours I feel worked incredibly well together, something I hadn’t expected! From the swatches themselves it’s not instantly obvious how these coordinates would have worked, though I feel I managed to do it some kind of justice, though I do wish I’d have used a little more of the crease and outer V colours whilst cutting back a little more on the blue (B), it’s just so pretty that I guess I got a little carried away! I feel that doing that could have resulted in a rather spot on eye look for channelling some serious Sally inspiration, too (The Nightmare Before Christmas).
So what do you think to my October contribution, would you rock this look yourself? Please do share any of your own looks with myself and Rossy as we’d love to see your talents! Speaking of which, don’t forget to take a look at the results of Rossy’s October challenge too!
