How To: This look is about the eye, so I made sure to go big. I started with the middle shadow shade – a shimmery pale gold – and applied as the base, from lash line to brow bone. I used the gold color on the entire lid, followed by the light matte brown in the crease. I applied the dark brown shade to the corners and smudged under the lower lash line for a full eye (not necessarily smoky as I didn’t smoke out the top much). Lastly, I lined the upper lash line with the same dark brown hue by using the applicator that comes in the palette (a great trick that I learned from Megan McIntyre of Refinery 29. I used the sheer beigey-pink Dior Addict Lipstick on my lips as well as the apples of my cheeks, a genius trick that Violette, a Dior makeup artist, taught me while in Paris last year. For some added highlight, I dabbed my finger into the center shadow and applied to brow and cheek bones.

Did You Know: Using a palette really takes the guessing work out of choosing your complimentary shades – but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a dozen different ways to wear the colors. For example, try a daytime eye by nixing the dark brown hue all together. Or work a pale eye into the mix by simply covering your lid with the bright gold shadow and nothing else.

    To me this says holidays, which start in the fall. The warm golden tones light up the face and really bring a sparkle to your complexion!
