Starry eyed

Following the launch of her revolutionary Nude Obsessions eyeshadow palettes, beauty mogul Huda Kattan has another treat for your eyes.

Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde

Whoever said “sky is the limit” has clearly never met Huda. This months she is taking her latest launch into outer space with a new Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde 18-well eyeshadow palette.

The combination of shades are not of this earth and are designed to help you create the most unique and dazzling makeup look. Packed full of cosmic pinks, galactic blues and tantalising teals that create endless colour combinations so, amidst the constant calamity of retrograde, your eyes will have nothing to worry about.

Quick science lesson, Mercury retrograde is an optical illusion where the planet appears to change course and move backwards in the sky. This celestial body some 48 million miles away from Earth might make you unusually clumsy and forgetful, but Huda’s team can be thankful to this phenomenon as it has inspired the name for the palette.

The name came to them during the last Mercury Retrograde in March and coincidentally enough, this galactic beauty of a palette will be launching on the day the next retrograde begins: October 31.

Can’t wait to get your hands on it? Here are some of tips from the beauty maestro herself:

  • Build your base with matte shadows
  • Pick-up the metallic shades using a dense fluffy brush in small circular motions and apply on your lids for a metallic finish
  • Build an extra layer using your fingers or a sponge brush for an extreme foil effect
  • Add some pop using the glitter powder
  • Top up your look with the multi-reflective shadows for a pearlescent glow

Mercury Retrograde 18-Well Palette Launching on Shop Huda Beauty on October 24 and in-store and online with retailers on October 31.
