My stash of makeup and beauty paraphernalia is rapidly gaining momentum and getting out of control. I am making a really big effort at the moment to give away the things that I won't use and don't suit me, and use up things that I have left half-finished for months on end. On sorting through my eye shadows, I realised that I have far too many palettes that I could ever use up, and generally I only really use my Urban Decay palettes.
At the moment I am into contouring in a big way, and my quest for the perfect matte shades seems never-ending. I noticed that some of the shades in MUA's Matte Ever After palette where the kind of shades I had been looking for in blushers and bronzers, yet here they were in eye shadow form. Rules are there to be broken, and so I thought I'd see how the eye shadows translate to the face, and they actually do a grand job. I use a couple of different shades and layer them up, and they do just as good a job as my beloved The Body Shop Honey Bronzer. I can't see me ever using the Matte Ever After palette on my eyes, so it makes sense to get use from it this way.
There may be some complete gems in your makeup stash if you try using them for a different purpose - after this little discovery I am now on the hunt for my next multi-purpose product, and urge you to do the same!
