Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes
Advantages: The instructions are really useful, the makeup is very good quality
Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes is a very treasured possession of mine! I wear it sometimes for an ordinary day, sometimes for a special occasion. I'm not sure if it makes my eyes big as such, but if I do say so it makes them beautiful!
Big Beautiful Eyes is a palette with a nice design inside a sleeve, which when you open up has a mirror on the top, four samples of makeup and 2 brushes, one of the two having two ends. It comes with an instruction leaflet which shows you how to use it to the greatest advantage.
The yellowy/skin colour section on the far left which is large than the rest is called "Boi-ing" and is used underneath the eye to get rid of those nasty dark circles. You use the concealer brush (they are labelled) to apply this, using both sides of the brush, and then blend it with your finger.
My opinion - This really, really works. Boi-ing makes your dark circles go away, simple as that.
The pale brown section beside Boi-ing is the base shadow. You apply this with the contour brush (after using Boi-ing), all over your eyelid from lashes to browline. This gives a subtle but noticeable lightly coloured shimmer. It is a base, and a browbone highlighter.
My opinion - It's really great because it works really well as a browbone highlighter but it wouldn't be good by itself as an eyeshadow.
The slightly darker shade of brown beside the base shadow is the contour shadow, which again (after applying the base shadow) is applied with the contour brush. You apply this shadow along the crease in your eyelid.
My opinion - This is excellent. It gives your eye really good shading and thanks to this I now always use this apply-along-the-crease tip with any of my two-tone eyeshadows as it looks really professional.
The dark brown shade on the far right is liner shadow. You use (after using the contour shadow) the square-shaped liner brush that has a really fine edge and draw the dark brown colour along under your lower lashes and the same for above your upper lashes. Also, for "more drama" as it says, you can use the liner shadow with the liner brush on the wide side and blend it into the crease of your eye crease at the outside edge and blend towads the browbone.
My opinion - This really adds the finishing touch. I always go for the "more drama" because I'm like that with eyeshadow!
After this, I apply mascara and then I'm done! It looks very professional and I find that the brown contrasts my blue eyes and makes my eyes look much more blue.
I recommend this so much, especially if you follow the leaflet. =) Big Beautiful Eyes is one of my favourite eyeshadows sets.
Summary: You'll see what I mean if you try it =P
