Film-inspired eyeshadow palettes

Something a bit dorky (but hopefully fun!) today, pals. I've been having a lot of fun lately with the Beautylish Inglot Freedom Palette tool. For those who don't know, the Freedom system is essentially a way for you to build your own customised palette - you choose how many slots you want, and then pick all your colours, and you get it all in one single palette. How cool is that? Anyway, I put together a couple palettes based on some of my favourite movies. This first one is from Tangled, my FAVE Disney movie ever.

Tangled palette
L-R top row:
450 Pearl
332 Matte
493 Double Sparkle
494 Double Sparkle
323 Matte
L-R bottom row:
58 AMC
477 Double Sparkle
26 Shine
329 Matte
65 AMC
Swatches (from the website):

The second palette I made is based off The Royal Tenenbaums. As you can imagine it wasn't terribly hard to get all the colours right for this one, since Wes Anderson films have such distinct colour schemes on their own!

The Royal Tenenbaums palette
L-R top row:
50 AMC
478 Double Sparkle
496 Double Sparkle
395 Pearl
391 Matte
L-R bottom row:
389 Matte
366 Matte
335 Matte
58 AMC
60 AMC

The only problem with the Freedom system is that while each individual eyeshadow is very reasonably priced, since you're building it yourself you don't get the discount per shadow you usually get with palettes, making each of these come out at $86, or £54. Ouch. So I suppose these are just a bit of fun, or fantasising about being so rich I could easily drop fifty pounds on an eyeshadow palette willy-nilly. Hopefully they're inspirational at least! What do you think? Do you like the Inglot Freedom system? Let me know if you'd like to see more film-inspired palettes!

    1. Thank you! Inglot has some amazing choices.

  2. Nice shades! It is hard to chose one out of so much options. Eye shades are essential part of a makeup so right shade would give you the best result.
