About a month ago I told you darlings about the awesome Finnis & Faye Bodyography event that I attended and I promised you a review on a stunning quad palette that I got to fill at the event. I chose the four shades that I most enjoyed and loved using at the event. Of course I had to actually use the eyeshadows for a few weeks to give you a proper review on it. Let’s start off by saying that I forgot the names of my shades but I do remember the shade “sable” which is the top right shade in the palette because it’s my absolute favourite one. With that being said, prepare yourself for a picture heavy post as I want to show you exactly why you need Bodyography eyeshadows in your beauty stash.
Now I might not be a pro at makeup application but I know exactly what a shadow should and shouldn’t do. Seeing that I love using my product for more than its intended purpose, a “multi-use” product is always a huge plus in my books. Firstly pigmentation of these shadows are INSANE. It’s definitely one of the best that I’ve ever come across so if you’re a newbie to eyeshadow application rather start off with the least amount of product on your brush and then build up intensity from there. The formulation of these eyeshadow are super soft but not the point where its too powdery. It blends like butter with minimal fallout which was a huge brand plus because on the day of the Finnis And Faye workshop, I wore a white shirt and I had no makeup stains whatsoever!For today’s makeup look, I teamed up with my bestie Zoor to shoot and style this look. We decided to go for a winter look with minimal makeup, a statement lip and bold brows. In my custom palette I chose two matte shades and two shimmer shades which is very versatile as the looks that can be created are endless. For this particular look we went with a sort of “Old Hollywood glam mixed with a winter feel”.
As I mentioned above, the shade “sable” is my favourite one out of the four shadows because it is so versatile. It was used to fill my brows, to contour my nose and cheeks. It gives great definition to areas that requires some sculpting and because the shades are so buttery, it blends like a dream. I’ve used my palette quite a few times in the past month but because of the high pigmentation of the shadows you only require the least amount of product which means it will last you quite some time.The size of each individual shadow is such a goodie in my opinion. It’s a tad bigger than a R5 coin which guarantees endless use out of it. I have done a more dramatic look in my Finnis&Faye Bodyography post so you can take look a look see over there and see just how amazing these shadows are. As for the staying power of these shadows? They stayed the entire day! This makeup look was created at 2pm and by after midnight they were still going strong… without a primer… even on these oily lids. WIN WIN. If you want to get your hands on Bodyography products you can pop on over to the Finnis and Faye website over here as they are the distributors of the brand. Next on my list? Their foundation and lipsticks!
