It’s been a long time since I did a ‘Face Of The Day’ post (we’re talking years) but I picked up a new MUA palette over the weekend and thought that the colours were perfect for a Galentine’s Day makeup look, so I had a play around with it today. I adore the warm toned colours in the MUA Burning Embers palette and knew I had to get hold of it after I saw it in one of Emma‘s videos when she used it as a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette which is something that I really want but can’t justify buying right now.

I really can’t take photos of my own face, these two were the best of a bad bunch but luckily you can see my eye makeup pretty well. I’ve been getting a bit more adventurous with my eyeshadow recently and instead of sticking to neutrals and a bit of eyeliner, I’ve been experimenting with brighter colours and occasionally glitter. I’m really pleased with how this look turned out and I think it’s quite a wearable everyday look. I actually wore something similar when I went out on Saturday night, but I added a darker brown in the outer corners, smudged some of the pink underneath my lower lash line and added some false eyelashes.

Here’s what I used to create this look:

    Do you rate that MUA palette? I’m after a palette with some colours just like these but not sure I can justify spending loads right now! I love the red tones. xx

      Yes, I love it! I think all of the colours are completely wearable and the pigmentation is great. I haven’t tried out all of the colours yet, but you can’t go wrong for £8 really.
