This palette has 2 highlight shades. The one on the top left has a flash of lilac and pink duochrome, while the top right is just a really light violet shade. Bottom right is a deep eggplant that is matte while bottom left is a satin purple taupe. The shade in the middle looks purple with blue undertones, but when worn, there are flashes of silver and violet. All the colours in this palette are pigmented, and I personally prefer it if one of the lighter shades was made a neutral and matte lid colour instead. I’d keep the top left shade because of the lovely shift in colour. It would be great if the top right shade is replaced with a transition shade such as maybe, matte wheat or something.
Here, I created 2 looks. One for day and another more dramatic for night. For day time look, I used the bottom left taupe purple all over the lid, and the bottom right deep eggplant to line my eyes. For this particular look, it would be nicer if I used a crease shade to blend things out. I didn’t, and the transition isn’t as smooth.
For the smokey eyes, I used the center shade all over my lids, pulling it down to my lower lash line as well. I find that after blending, this shade loses intensity, so I used my ring finger to pat in the purple again, to up the intensity. With a really small brush, I used the top left colour to highlight the inner corners of my eyes. I also added the deep eggplant (bottom right) on my lash lines to deepen the look. I finished off the look with a grey eye liner instead of a black. And lots of mascara of course.
On my cheeks is a neutral pinky beige (an old Lunasol cream blush) and on my lips is Rouge Dior Nude in Charnelle 459. I personally prefer the smokey eyes with Dior Magnify because I think coloured smokey eyes are more fun. I hope you enjoyed this post, and that I’ve given you some ideas on how to wear these palettes. I’m not a trained makeup artist, but I try to have fun.
Have a good weekend!
