Everyone has a certain set of colours they feel the best in and the most themselves in. I’ve always been a neutrals girl – bronzes, browns, and champagne colours are my preferred cup of tea. That being said, there are so many flavours of tea out there, and life would be boring if we only over drank the same type every single day. I’ll stop with the tea analogies now. In the world of eyeshadows, I consider neutrals to be the Earl Grey and English Breakfast of the eyeshadow world. Gorgeous, classic, and wonderful, but you shouldn’t necessarily limit yourself to them. There are so many other colours out there – like blue eyeshadow!
I never really loved how I looked in colourful eyeshadow until recently. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved playing with colour – but I felt a lack of inspiration for a while. I decided recently that I needed to get back into what made me fall in love with makeup, and that’s experimenting; just sitting down, playing with products, and seeing what comes out of it! I’ll be sharing more makeup looks like this blue eyeshadow halo eye regularly here on my blog, and on my Instagram!
Affordable Palettes To Create Colorful Looks:
I’ve been playing with 2 palettes from BH Cosmetics for a couple of weeks now, and I’m so obsessed with them! I love how this blue eyeshadow/halo eye turned out! I’m planning to do a full review of the palettes soon, so stay tuned for that! They are such great palettes for anyone wanting to add some fun and colour to their collection – and they’re extremely affordable!
These are the colours I used to create this look:

The time has finally come for a makeup declutter! Well, technically the time came long ago, but I couldn’t seem to bring myself to do it. To say that my makeup collection is cluttered would be a gross understatement; I’m a makeup-hoarder, and not afraid to admit it.
Why I’m Decluttering
In the past, I’ve been quite a makeup-shopping addict. Buying new makeup every week was normal, and always made me happy. It was a way to instantly improve my mood – I wanted to collect as much makeup as I could. 2018, however, has definitely been a time of change. I’ve started to shift into more of a minimalist mindset and realize how much product I’ve accumulated that I truly don’t need – and how desperately I need a makeup declutter. I think we as humans fall very easily into the trap of over-abundance. We think that the more we have, the happier we will be. It got to a point where I simply was overwhelmed by the amount of product I’ve accumulated and wasn’t using it effectively. There is so much that I don’t use, don’t like, and quite frankly a lot that just needs to be thrown in the garbage.
Join me in this makeup declutter as I attempt to tackle the mess that is my makeup collection. Stay tuned for the next video in this series!
