blush 88 palette


Blush Professional 88 colour palette* - £8.99 from here

Alongside planning a fashion photoshoot, I always insist on doing the makeup myself. I'm rubbish with hair so never bother with it but I don't see the point in wasting money on an average makeup artist for photoshoots when you can get some materials and resources needed, watch a few youtube tutorials and do something if not near enough brilliant, then even better!

I purely got this palette to use on photoshoots. My sister is my usual model. She has been featured in a lot of my work so I don't mind using my own makeup on her (providing it all gets cleaned properly afterwards). However, I would never use my personal makeup on other people so I needed something that could serve that purpose! 

The 88 palette consists of 88 shadows ranging from pale pastels to brighter colours to the darker smoky browns, greys blacks. I was pleasently surprised how pigmented the shadows are. Even the lighter shadows in the top left area are really pigmented. I wouldn't say they're 'buttery' which is probably my favourite consistency when it comes to eyeshadows (oh naked palette, all eyes are on you), but for a price under a tenner (£10), it's got the wow-factor! As you can see, I only swatched a few of the brighter shadows and the darker green and black which I am now really excited to use properly!

I think this palette is great value of money and something everyone should have. I now really want to try all of the other products from the website!
