The 5 Minute Everyday Smoky Eye | Eye of Horus Maat Dark Temptress Palette

Eye of Horus are an Aussie brand I've featured once on the blog before, when I reviewed their Brow Define Pencil* (post). Winners of the Latest in Beauty Best Eye Makeup Award, Eye of Horus are renowned for their smudge-proof, long lasting formulas and their gentle ingredients inspired by Ancient Egyptians, who used only natural ingredients such as Moringa Oil to create their dark eye makeup looks. Four new baked eyeshadow palettes have been added to their line up this Autumn/Winter and I was very kindly sent the Maat Dark Temptress Palette* to try.

The palette contains 3 neutral eyeshadows, ideal for a quick and easy natural smoky eye, or even a dramatic dark look with intense shimmer if you have a bit more time;

Amarna Light - Champagne Shimmer
Ankh Odyssey - Soft Taupe Matte
Dark Dynasty - Chocolate Matte

As you can see, the pigmentation of these is amazing. They're so rich and buttery, making them a dream to work with, especially if you're in a rush (or if you're me and have a toddler climbing all over your back and a baby trying to eat your toes whilst you try and make yourself look alive at 9am). I love little trio palettes like this as they're perfect for travel and always compliment each other so it's easy to do a quick eye look. For a quick 5 minute eye, I've been using Amarna Light all over the lid and brow bone, Ankh Odyssey blended into the crease and on the lower lashline, then using an angled brush and smudging Dark Dynasty into the upper lash line for a smokey eye liner effect.

The Maat Dark Temptress Palette Retails for £22.50 and is available on Beauty Bay now. | link
Have a great weekend!
