The Maat Dark Temptress palette should be a staple in everybody’s makeup bag. Firstly, the packaging is to die for! I love how each item by Eye of Horus is beautifully presented. I find myself protecting my Eye of Horus makeup from the rest of my makeup, it’s special and makes me feel beautiful. I always feel like I’m using something special whenever I apply their makeup, their products are just so luxe! This palette contains all you need to contour your eyes (and face) and the highlighter can be used all over your face to bring light and a gorgeous glow to your skin. Each colour in this palette doesn’t fade, crease of fall out, they are all extremely long-wearing and sweat resistant.. Below I’ll chat a little bit about each individual colour in the palette.

Armana Light- This is the highlight colour and has a velvety satin finish. The perfect highlighter because it reflects back a creamy colour in natural light, this guarantees a glowing ‘lit from within’ finish.
Tips and tricks for getting the most use out of this shadow:
Use it as an all over highlighter.
Buff it into the high points of your face before applying your liquid foundation for a gorgeous natural glow.
Dab it into the middle of your lower lip after applying lipstick for a fuller looking pout.
Highlight and define under your eyebrows.

Ankh Odyssey- The perfect, PERFECT taupe colour. If you’ve had trouble finding the right eyeshadow colour to use for eye contour, look no further. This eyeshadow is true to colour, blends effortlessly and has a soft matte finish. This is my favourite shadow in the palette. It’s just a taupe lovers dream come true!
Tips and tricks for getting the most use out of this shadow:
Use it all over the lid as a gorgeous neutral shadow, it will really make your eyes pop.
Use to contour in the crease of your brow (I demonstrate this in the tutorial) to create soft natural definition.
Use as a transitional colour for a gorgeous smokey eye.
Use it to contour your entire face, cheekbones, temples, jawline and nose.
Gently line your entire eye with this colour for the perfect ‘no makeup’ eyeliner.

Dark Dynasty- This is a gorgeous deep brown and like all of Eye of Horus’ eyeshadows, blends effortlessly and stays true to colour all day (and night). This shadow has a soft matte finish and I find myself reaching for it all the time because of how beautiful and rich the colour is. It’s the perfect shade of dark brown that will look beautiful on every skin tone.
Tips and tricks for getting the most use out this shadow:
Use it all over the lid for a soft, smokey brown eyeshadow.
Gently smudge it along the lash line for a beautiful, soft smokey eyeliner.
Smudge it on top of any Eye of Horus pencil to create your own dynamic colour (I love smudging this over the Bronze Amulet pencil).
Layer it underneath any colour from the Isis Sun Goddess palette.
