How To: I started with the lightest beige shade and applied from lid to brow bone. I used the golden brick hue in my crease and under my lower lash line. I dabbed a bit of the camouflage green shade in the corners of my eye for a deeper smoky look and created a very thin, smudgy line just above the top lashes (*I love colors in this palette – it is like an ode to fall with green, red, and beige shades!). I used the purple side of the eyeliner in the waterline of my lower lash line. The Eye Tint is a really great product solo, but here I used just a smudge starting from the inner corner of my lid and lightly pulling the color out. Next, was blush: Bolero went along the cheekbone to define and add color (as opposed to just flush the apples of my cheeks), a more dramatic approach. I finished with the Sheer Lip Tint in Valentina, a gorgeous sheer peachy-raspberry.

Did You Know: As with so many of these colorful shadow palettes, if you’re a bit intimidated to mix the colors, stick with one of the dark shades for a wash of color. First, apply the beige shadow as your base from lid to brow bone, then apply either the brick or the green hue on the entire lid. Use your finger, dab the shadow in the center of your eye, then gently work it out to the far corners and back in towards the inner corners. The point at which the shadow touches your lid (in this case, the center, directly above your pupil), will be the most pigmented. And shadow in the center makes eyes appear wider and brighter.

    I love the smokey neutral look. Everything is perfection, the brows, the eyes, the cheeks, such a flattering look.

    I adore this for an everyday look. It’s so soft and girly, but with a bit of a grown up edge thanks to the hint of smokiness in the eyes. well done!
