I thought I would dip into the back of the make up drawer of dreams today and pick out something that I haven’t used for a while. This custom eye shadow palette falls into the category, although I have no idea why – the colours are really nice accent colours for me and they are a good formulation.
About 20 years ago I went to a Colour Me Beautiful consultant to “get my colours done“. I am guessing most people reading this have an idea of what that means, but in case you don’t, the consultant works out if your skin has cool or warm undertones and which tone and depth of colour suits you. I came up as a Deep Autumn and was given a palette of rusts. greens and in general “sludgy” colours.
A couple of years ago, trying on items from the wardrobe, I just felt that the colours I had been buying for the last fifteen years just weren’t cutting it any more. I did a quick colour update with a friend and realised that in common with many women my colour had cooled, and I now had more pink undertones to my face. I got a new palette of colour swatches to play with, and also put together this eyeshadow palette of custom colours for me.
I’ve stuffed this to the front of the drawer and will get this back into circulation. I’d forgotten how nice it was.
