Louise Young - Essential Eye Palette

I am EXTREMELY impressed with my new Louise Young Essential Eye Palette. 

Louise Young is based in the UK and has been a highly successful make-up artist for over 20 years working in film, fashion, television and theatre.  Louise is very well known for her range of top quality make-up brushes and has now launched the Essential Eye Palette as the first item in her cosmetic line.

Here is a snap of me wearing it at work after 9 hours wear, in a very simple application.  I applied Too Faced Shadow insurance first for maximum colour payoff. 

My colleagues had no idea why I was taking a photo of myself at my desk!

One of the things I love about the shadows is the creamy matte texture.  After consistent use of the Urban Decay Naked Palette over the last few months, it has been so refreshing to switch things up and put the shimmer on hold for a while.  I found with this palette I could create both warm and cool looks depending on my mood, by adding the coral shade into the mix.  You can also use the coral shade as a blush if you use a light hand.

This palette will be travelling around Australia with me, as the colours allow for a variety of looks.  The palette is sleek and contains a small headed flatbrush and a large mirror.

I purchased mine for 30 pounds (GBP) from
