So its spring here in the beautiful Cape Town (glad I no longer endure English winter). The lovely Michelle from Luxury Cosmetics sent me the Stila In The Moment Eye Palette which is a shimmery palette with pretty shades for spring and then darker purple, bronze and black to take your look from day to night.

I decided to try the lighter shades and then blend in the darker prurple to create a pretty spring eye and then apired it with a Stila lipgloss to keep the look really fresh and summery.

Stilla Palette


Purple eyes

For my face: I buffed in Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and contoured using Hoola by Benefit.

For the eyes: I used thed an eye primer before applying the eyeshadow. Then to base the lids I took the lighter shade Desire and applied over my lid up to the crease, then I took the gold/champagne shade Wonder and applied that over the lighter shade. Then with a Mac 217 blending brush I used light and dark purple in Impulse and Glance and blended into the outer corner of my eye slightly winging out and I applied under my eye the darker purple in Glance. In the outer corner of my eye I applied the Smudge Stick in Tantra that came with the set and then blended it in. I finished off the eye with some mascara.

Lips: I applied the Stila Lip Glaze in Passion Fruit to give a pretty lip and not take any focus off the purple on the eye.

The Stila palette is great as you can create a pretty day look for work or when going out in the day and then to take it to a night look you can blend the darker shades in to create a smokey look.

Watch this space as will be filming a video tutorial using the palette.

Hope you enjoyed my post. x
