Sunday Stash Shopping #15 featuring LORAC Garnet

Today’s stash shopping is more of me experimenting with the shade Garnet in the Lorac Pro Eye Palette. If you haven’t read the review or seen the swatches, please click here to have a look first. I also made it convenient for you so here are the swatches again.

Many of you love Garnet and so do I, so I feel obligated to create a couple of ways to use it. I was a little ambitious with the first try, and used quite a few colours. I used some complementary shades, and since Gold is also a favourite, I paired them both together. I used Garnet at the center of my lids, Gold on the inner corners and Deep Purple to add definition on the outer corners of my lid. I then used a green liner (Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner in Jade) to line my lower lash lines before using Gold on the inner half and Garnet on the outer half. I also used a black pencil to draw on my waterline before finishing off with mascara.

The green liner really brought out the brown in my eyes.

After the colourful attempt and tedious blending, I wanted something simpler so I tried Garnet with Black. Basically, it is Garnet on the inner half of the lid and Black on the outer half. On the lower lash line, I pulled the black nearly halfway in and added some highlight on the inner half with Lt Bronze. Then line with black liner and finish off with mascara.

How would you use Garnet? Which one of the above do you prefer? I hope you liked today’s little experiment!
