Evening Eyes with the Clinique Holiday Make-up Set

Clinique Holiday Make-up Set* from Selfridges
Eye makeup is something I rarely take a risk with. For those of you that know me well, you will know that a simple cat-flick with my beloved liquid liner is all that graces my eyelids on a daily basis. But when Selfridges got in touch and asked if I’d like to try out the Clinique Holiday Make-up Set there wasn’t much of a hesitation on my part – with two Cream Shapers for Eyes, High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara, eight All About Shadow Eyeshadows and two double-ended brushes, it was definitely something I wanted to add to my collection.

All the colours are quite daring and I was definitely a little scared. However I wanted to try and create something a little different and see what I could get away with. Luckily, I have a very wonderful make-up artist friend, Zoe, who very kindly said she’d work her magic and create an evening time look with the palette for me...and here are the results:
I wasn’t expecting to, but I absolutely love it!! (Zoe, you’re so talented! ;)). The deep purple really makes green eyes 'pop' and although it's not a colour I would've considered beforehand, it’s really shown me that I need to take more risks with my makeup and that even the most daring colours can work. The mascara has to be my favourite item in the set, seperating the lashes beautifully and adding huge amounts of volume - it's easily the most impressive mascara I’ve tried in a long time – new holy grail?

To create the look Zoe used 3 of the shadows (the dark purple, lilac and golden brown) and both the cream shapers. The shadows are super pigmented and have a beautiful shimmer to them whilst the cream shapers are true to their name and on application are incredibly creamy, easy to blend and stay put. Personally, I think it's so refreshing to see some vibrant colours in a palette and to include the shapers is a genius idea.

We’ve even filmed a tutorial for my YouTube channel that will be live over the weekend, so keep your eyes peeled and make sure you’re subscribed if you’d like to see a step by step of how we achieved this :)

What do you think? Is purple a colour you’d go for now?
