Adding To My Morphe Palette

I don't know what it is about building my own palette, there is so much joy from wanting to own a variety of different colours but the downside is that I cannot justify spending £6+ on a single eyeshadow, I'm a cheap skate, I know. Don't hate me!
Customised Morphe Palette
Therefore, when I went on a spree of buying shadows and I couldn't help but be pleased as to how many I'd got so I had to share it with you! In this palette, my idea is to have an array of blues and greens alongside the odd purple and pink for when I want to venture into some new riveting and out there shades. You can see how I first started building this palette and what shadows I began with.

First Row
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Ice Queen £6.00
A shimmery white which is ideal for inner corner or brow bone highlight as well as a base for shadows to go onto. It can also be used on the centre of the eye if you are creating a halo effect for the light to bounce off.

Morphe Eyeshadow in Wink For Pink £4.50
When I first picked this shadow up it was an astonishing £1.99. £1.99, what a bargain! This shadow adds a lovely subtle pink shimmer to any eye look, but, it isn't as pigmented as the other shades in this palette.

Morphe Eyeshadow in Gumdrop £4.50
It's not often that I find myself reaching for this shadow in the winter, however, this fluorescent pinky coral is perfect for the spring and summer months when you are wanting to create a peachy eye look. As this colour it quite bright it is great for experimentation.

Prima Makeup Pressed Glitter Eyeshadow in Pink To Make The Boys Wink* £4.25
Pressed glitters are something that I've never experimented with until lately and this one by Prima is beyond beautiful. It is a rosy pink colour with a creamy gel-like creamy consistency which applies softly to the eyes without creating any harshness on the delicate eyelid.

Makeup Geek Duochrome Eyeshadow in Mai Tai £6.00
This unique duochrome eyeshadow has hints of pink, orange and golden yellow running throughout. Depending on the angle in which you look at this shadow, will determine its shimmer that shines through. This has to be one of my least used shades out of them all.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Confection £6.00
I love pastels shades as they add such a lovely pop of colour to the eyes for an everyday look as they are so easy to wear. Confection is a cool-toned muted mauve which I prefer to use in the crease as a transition colour.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Morocco £6.00
Morocco has to be one of my most reached and used shadow out of this palette so far. I am forever using it in the crease as a warm transition shade as it works perfectly for that. It is a gorgeous matte, burnt orange with a hint of rustic red running throughout, which will suit all skin tones.

Second Row
Makeup Geek Duochrome Eyeshadow in Rockstar £6.00
This icy grey eyeshadow has an iridescent purple and pink sheen running throughout. Rockstar is definitely for those of you with pale skin, not only this but, be sure to pick yours up ASAP as this shadow is going to be discontinued!

Prima Makeup Pressed Glitter Eyeshadow in Liquid Gold* £4.25
This pressed glitter is one of my most used in my collection due to its wearable, everyday properties. It's a wonderful yellow toned gold which works well all over the lid or in the inner corners for a pop of colour. Gold can be used within nearly every look which is why it's got a huge dent in the pan!

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Shore Thing £6.00
Shore thing is a beautiful pale aqua, mint green shade represented within the name by the shore. This matte shade is such a refreshing pastel which can work in conjunction with neutral shadows as well as colourful, outgoing looks.

MAC Eyeshadow in Humid £13.50
Even though this shadow is the most expensive one out of the lot, it has to be the most pigmented one too. It's definitely not your everyday shade but, it's a garden green with golden shimmer running throughout. Not only is the colour payoff incredible it also blends seamlessly.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Shark Bait £6.00
As far as blue and greens go, this has to be one of my favourite colours. It is a lovely medium deep blue with teal undertones; an aquatic shade. Once blended out thoroughly it turns into a green, true teal shade which works well in conjunction with brown eyes.

Prima Makeup Pressed Glitter Eyeshadow in Out Of The Blue* £4.25
I find myself using this glitter along my lower lash line quite frequently and I love that I can use this there without worrying that it's going to smudge or move into my eye causing me any hassle. Out of the blue, as the name suggests is a beautiful blue bordering along the lines or aqua and turquoise. I cannot get enough of this shade it's gorgeous!

Morphe Eyeshadow in Sapphire £4.50
This deep cobalt blue is such a refreshing shade due to its sapphire colour and reflexes. Although this shade is shimmery, there is no detection of any glitter particles which is a great thing as I hate it when there are chunks of glitter in an eyeshadow.

Third Row
Prima Makeup Pressed Glitter Eyeshadows in Your Turning Violet, Violet!* £4.25
This is just one of the purple tones which I want to contain in this palette. It is a creamy violet shade, which borders on the bridge of a pinky purple, with hints of plum running throughout. The reflexes on the glitter give a unique grape colour pay off.

Morphe Eyeshadow in Royalty £4.50
Royalty is a deep and dark, grungy purple with brown undertones. It's an essential for creating a smokey eye look due to its vampy shade and matte finish. I find that it is best to use this shade in the outer third or crease of the eye to deepen up any look.

I don't reach for this palette every time I create an eye look but there are definitely shades that I reach for quite often. I adore how my palette is coming along so far and I cannot wait to purchase some more shades. What shades do you recommend me to get? Have you got any of these? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
