  • My beauty stash: Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals Eye Foils

    One of my favourite make-up trends from Spring/Summer 14 is metallic eyes. And I’m not talking fairy dust sprinkled around your peepers but full-on, creamy textures that enhance and make your eyes a focal point. So when I discovered MakeUp Revolution Awesome Metals Eye Foils, I was super excited. Not only would I be able to recreate those looks but I could do it for a steal of a price.

    A bit of sparkle on the eye

    Bring out those peepers

    The deal

    Makeup Revolutions Awesome Eye Foils are creamy eyeshadow formulas that glide on and create layers of multidimensional colour around your eye. Easy-to-apply, you can opt for a sheerer look or build up the intensity to copy the graphic styles seen all over the Paris Spring/Summer shows.

    Amazing bronze, mixing palette and primer

    And the best thing about this eye colour is that it comes with a primer and tray so you can mix and apply for a smoother finish. When it comes to eyeshadows, powders can be messy and if you don’t get it right, you can end up looking like a sparkly flower fairy (not that this is not good, it’s just not my style). The primer and tray mean you control how much colour you apply to your eyelid.

    How I use it

    I use it by itself as I’ve found that I really don’t need to use it with anything else. Simply add lashings of mascara and your eyes instantly appear brighter.  For a more dramatic look, add some liquid eyeliner to your upper lid and in an instant, you’re ready to hit the town. It’s a perfect piece to add to your kit and, thanks to the primer, lasts all day long.

    As you can see from my photo, the bronze colour, which I own, adds a sheen and shiny effect. Gorgeous and perfect for the summer months when you don’t want to wear to layer it on too thick.

    It is also available in four other shades, which include a beautiful teal metallic.

    The price

    It’s not just the finish that makes this product so special. You really can’t find anything better on the market for the price as one shadow costs a fiver. Yes, a whole five pound note. What else can you buy make-up wise that is so effective?

    The Metal Eye Foils are, in fact, one of the most expensive products from the new Makeup Revolution range. With lipsticks, eye colours and nail polishes starting from £1, and a 100 Eyeshadow Palette for just £12, this is one hell of a make-up revolution. There are also some luminous eye colours, which are perfect for festival season. I’m going to grab a couple (they’re a pound each!) for when I head to Latitude this summer.

    So what are you waiting for? Join the Makeup Revolution or head to Superdrug where the entire range is currently being stocked.
