Collaboration with Bek featuring the BH Cosmetics 'Forever Nude palette & giveaway

So this is my very first collaboration with another blogger & Instagram beauty guru from Australia.
Bek & myself have both got a penchant for buying & trying all types of beauty products from makeup, face creams to anything new & old on the market.

For today we both decided on creating two looks, a day look which is done by me & a night look done by Bek using our BH Cosmetics Forever Nude palettes.

An exciting giveaway will also be available as a thank you to our amazing followers!!

Quick review on the palette itself:

I had one of those instant impulse buy moments when I saw these on Instagram & just had to have them. I purchased a bundle of items from BH Cosmetics as the shipping is really only worth it if you are buying in bulk.
Right now BH Cosmetics is selling the Forever Glam palette at 48% off which brings the price to $11.50 which for me is a bargain for such an elegant everyday palette.

The Palette itself is so feminine & girlie, it comes with six eye shadows (2 matte & 4 shimmer), 2 cheek colours, a highlighter & 2 lip colours.
I found that the eye shadows are very blendable but the lighter shadows barely showed up on my dark skin but the darker shadows worked perfectly & will be something il use for night looks.
The lip colours weren't the everyday shades id use so instead I used my own lipsticks but from a value point of view these were great.

Onto the tutorial:

For my day look I wanted to keep it simple but sultry. This is something you can wear everyday & doesn't necessarily take up a lot of time.
I very rarely have time to apply eye shadow on a day to day basis with my busy schedule, so for me this was such an easy tutorial.

I used a my Urban Decay Primer Potion as the base for this tutorial, you will see how these shadows barely showed up on my skin which was a little disheartening but keep in mind that i have seen the same shadows used on people with lighter complexions & they looked amazing.

1. I used the highlighter in the palette to shade my brow bone & brighten that area.
2. Next I used the matte pink/berry shade all over my eyelid as the base & just a little blended up past my crease to the outer corner of my eye.
3. I used the light shimmer purple shade for the inner half of my lid.
4. Using the lightest eyeshadow I placed a small amount on the inner tear duct of my eye.
5. For the eyeliner I used NYX super skinny marker in 'carbone black' & Jordana best lash extreme mascara in '301 black'.
6. With my eyeshadow now complete I then went onto my everyday makeup using Tarte amazonian clay foundation in light medium beige, Mac pro long wear concealer in NW25, Ben Nye Banana Powder to set & highlight under the eyes, Mac MSF 'medium' for all over face powder, Mac 'sun power' for contouring my face, the light peach shade in the BH Cosmetics palette as my blush, Mary Lou-Manizer for highlighting & finished off with a spritz of Mac Fix+ to set my face.
7. Last but not least I used my favourite combo on the lips  with Nars velvet matte jumbo lip pencil in 'sex machine & Face of Australia lip liner 'tender berry'.
