My Perfect Winter Palette Using Single Shadows!

16

I have a decent sized single eyeshadow collection that I absolutely love. Unfortunately, they tend to get overlooked because palettes can just be easier to grab for. I want to change that this year, though, and I decided to start with a winter/Christmas themed palette. I was going to talk about this before Christmas but ran out of time.

I was heavily inspired by the Oden’s Eye holiday collection that is now discontinued. I was going to buy both of the palettes they released but the fact that they were SO limited edition turned me off from buying them. I’m glad I didn’t because this palette really filled that void. 

I’m not going to technically review this palette, but I will show you swatches, describe the shades and show you the looks I created. The majority of these shadows are from Looxi Beauty but a few are from ShopMissa, Coloured Raine and Colourpop. I tried to use newer shadows but of the thirty, nine have been discontinued. I also didn’t use every shade in the palette, like I typically do, but since this isn’t a review, I don’t think that really matters.

For the swatch pictures, I took them using flash and the swatches go from left to right. Let’s talk about them!
