Do you know when you see something and just know it’s going to be great? It’s the best feeling, and one that doesn’t happen too regularly. So, when Stila’s Perfect Me Perfect Hue palette appeared a few weeks back, I got rather excited.
I fell in love with the packaging first, and it would be hard not to! The compact is sizeable enough to hold five good sized shadows and two blushes comfortably, and it’s a stunning brushed gold. The lid is also covered in a self-coloured leopard print which is just adorable!
The Perfect Me Perfect You palettes are available in three colour ways – Fair/Light, Medium/Tan and Tan/Deep. I was sent the lightest option, and for my colouring, it’s perfection.
Fair/Light is the most perfect mix of cool, blue toned pink, and slightly warmer peaches. If you’re looking for a palette that’s going to leave you looking natural and groomed – this is the compact for you!
The Perfect Me Perfect Hue palette is a real lifesaver in the mornings! It takes the guesswork out of makeup, and I love the fact that each product serves a purpose (which Stila have helpfully included on the base of the compact).
Working from the top, I cover my entire lid, all the way to my brow bone in the base (top left) using a fluffy brush. Then, I buff the highlighting shade (top centre) into my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes. It’s seriously brightening, and it eradicated the damage done by late nights! I then buff in the taupe (top right) into my crease, making sure that there are no harsh lines. Then the fun begins! Using my ring finger, I then pat the centre glitter shade onto my lids. I’m obsessed with the texture of the shadows. They’re all buttery smooth, with wonderful colour payoff, and they are perfectly bendable. To finish my eyes, using an angled brush, I smudge the deep chocolate brown into my lash line, making sure it’s not too harsh a line.
Then, once I’ve applied my bronzer, I swirl a little of the peachy blush from my cheek bones up to my temples, then add a little pop of the blue pink blush to the apples of my cheeks. The formulas of both are just dreamy and add a believable glow (which is very necessary on these dark mornings!) which lasts all day. I’m so glad that I’ve discovered this little gem – I’m currently contemplating which bits and bobs to take with me on a few trips I have lined up, and I know this one is coming with me!
