Beauty: Frontcover Eyeshadow Palette

I tend to always keep my eye make-up the same, perhaps I’m stuck in a rut or perhaps I just know what works best for my eye shape either way it’s time to try some new eyeshadows.

The Frontcover Cosmetics “Hot Shades Cool Colours” is the perfect palette for this with 18 exciting shades plus a sweep of gold.

Frontcover Cosmetics create ready to wear make-up gift sets inspired by catwalk trends – each set focuses on a different theme. The collections are contained in a magazine cover style box with photographic instructions from a make-up artist on how to create the different looks.

The Hot Shades Cool Colours Collection is inspired by the intense colour blocking from the catwalks and includes the hottest shades of the season. The packaging of Frontcover collections has put me off in the past, the boxes can be large and cardboard which aren’t practical for travelling or on the go make-up. However this product is brilliant, it comes in a sturdy plastic box which is much more concise due to it’s double layer function.

Pop open the top for the vivid domed eyeshadows and then slide the bottom layer out to reveal more subtle tones.

So when you manage to open the top layer (which can be a struggle to open) you are in for a treat. Below are just a few examples of the many, many looks you can create with this palette.
