Eyeshadows by Atelier Maquillage International

I came across this brand at IMATs this year and as a makeup artist I am always on the look out for new colours and products so I tested them on the back on my hand at the stall. To my surprise the colours were vibrant and highly pigmented. The eyeshadows come in palettes of 5, and you can buy them pre packed or make your own palette. I bought a couple of pre-made ones in Blues , Purples, Peaches, and Pinks. Apart from trying them for test shoots I tried them on ME for a TV interview I gave a few months ago. Some of the eyeshadows are light reflective and shimmery and others are matte. The real test was on a shoot I did with Actress Maia Sethna  and I wanted to create a turquoise / acqua eyemakeup with a smokey look, the colours have come out really well in the pictures. I am so impressed with them that I might buy a larger palette which takes in more of their colourful eyeshadows.
