Hi MUA fans!
I'm Kim from the 'Kimpants Makeup' blog, I've been writing my own blog for a few months now. I post my makeup looks regularly and I'd say 99% of the time there's at least one MUA product involved.
I always tweet MUA when I use their products and they always reply or retweet, but I never expected any more to come of it...
Until now of course! I was contacted on Twitter by Xavia who works for the company. She asked me to email her as she had a question for me. I didn't want to get my hopes up - it could have been anything - but of course, I did secretly have my fingers crossed for something exciting and rightly so, because she wanted to ask me to write this guest blog post for them!
They sent me these:
The new Mrged Eyeshadow Tios and their Lipgloss Trios as well!
The first thing that stood out when I opened them was how pretty the eyeshadows are - they look like little planets. Planets full of joy and glitter! The colours are gorgeous too, as are the colours of the lipglosses. I couldn't wait to try them out and they definitely have lived up to my expectations.
I also just want to point out that even though they did send me these, if I hadn't liked them, instead of doing a big, old, fake post, I would have emailed them back to see if I could swap the products for something else - I wouldn't have wanted to use rubbish makeup as much as you probably don't want me to recommend it to you!
So anyways... In the video below, I'm going to show you how to create this day to evening makeup look using the trios (and a clever tip for adding some extra drama to the shadows too!).
Most of the colours in the trios compliment each other well, so you could easily vary this look to suit what colours you're wearing or what colours you prefer, as long as you have your lights/mediums/darks in the same places. For added intensity I'd also recommend adding a matte black shadow in the crease, but I wanted to show a look you could create just using the trios. MUA do a great matte black which I use religiously. (Shade 20)
As you can see from the picture as well, there are plenty of shades of lipglosses to choose from, from pretty pale pinks and nudes for day time, to brights and darks for evening. I actually wore the dark colour that I used in the evening look all day today - it lasted really well and didn't dry my lips out in the slightest. Good stuff, yes?
So, I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and picked up some tips on how you could use these trios. This is just a small fraction of my MUA eyeshadow collection, so if you want to see more looks using their shadows, you can find plenty in my blog!
Thank you so much to MUA for giving me the opportunity to write this guest post!
