Revolution Make-Up Review and Tutorial

One of the most affordable make-up brands on the market, especially the pricey Irish one. Revolution is a brand I have used for years, picking up bits and pieces and trying them out. It’s only in the past couple of years that they have become one of many make-up artists’ favourite brands because of how good the quality of their products is.

This is the first time I have used these products (bar the concealer) so I thought a review would be worthwhile!

Mattify – Matte and Fix Primer

After a skin consultation at the start of the year, I stopped wearing primer because I was told how much it clogs the pores. However, I really noticed how much my foundation wore off when I didn’t wear it, so back to primer it is…sorry pores! Oily skin means I need something to mattify the shine throughout the day and I was so pleased with the outcome of the Revolution primer! It doesn’t feel like a mask or too heavy on the skin which is fab because that cakey feeling is the worst! If you have oily skin as well, I highly recommend this primer. Find it here.



Conceal & Define – Full Coverage Foundation

Only recently released to the Irish market, the Conceal & Define Foundation was a hit with beauty bloggers in the UK; I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! I’ve said before how much I love full coverage foundations so when I used this I was a bit surprised, to be honest. It’s definitely a build able foundation and not straight up full coverage, which isn’t a bad thing! I can wear this to work and not pile it on and if I’m heading out for the day I can put a bit more on and build the coverage. I would recommend the foundation to all skin types, but use a primer that suits your skin underneath. Find it here.



Conceal & Define – Full Coverage Conceal and Contour

The product I had used before. The Conceal & Define concealer is a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape concealer.  This is a concealer I will go back to time and time again. It’s so affordable and the quality is so much more than your usual drugstore concealer! It’s thick, creamy and so easy to blend without those annoying lines forming under your eyes. 10/10 would recommend to a friend! Find it here.



Steps in between Revolution products

Bronze and highlight

Using the Subzero palette by B Perfect for my highlighter and Bare Minerals Bronzer to contour and warm my face.



The Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade is the brow product I will never let go of. I promise it is worth every penny (or cent to me now)!


Revolution Eyeshadow Palette –

This was only £4!!! I was so tempted to fill the basket, but mummy was paying so I didn’t want to take the piss. The quality of these shadows is unreal! I’m so impressed. Find it here.


  1.  I used the mauve shade as my transition.


2. The dark pink shade had more of an orange tinge when I applied it in the outer corners.


3. The lighter pink with a light shimmer was used in the inner corners and the bright pink (left, middle) under my lash line. I love a bright colour under the eyes!


Liner, mascara and lips

The Benefit Roller Liner is the dreamiest eyeliner I’ve ever used! It’s so easy to apply and get the perfect wing without it all going wrong (like it usually does with other liners). The mascara I have been using recently was from a goodie bag and I don’t even know the brand! The classic nude lip is Mac Lipliner in Whirl and Mac Lipstick in Velvet Teddy.


Et voila! 

The look is complete. I loved the Revolution products and will most likely be purchasing a lot more eyeshadow palettes very soon.


As I say in every beauty blog post – I love playing with make-up! I am by no means a make-up artist but love to try new products and tell you all what I think of them. Really hope you enjoyed!
