FOTD Using L'Oreal Lavender Smokes & Urban Decay Naked Palette

What I used: E.L.F. Studio Blusher/Bronze duo, Revlon Sterling Rose e/s quad, Urban Decay Naked Palette, L'Oreal Lavender Smokes quad, Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, Revlon Color Stay e/l in Black, Maybelline Define-a-Line e/l in Rich Raisin (used as e/s base), L'Oreal Telescopic mascara in Carbon Black, Mary Kay Mineral Blush in Shy, L'Oreal Colour Riche l/s in Gilded Pink


I used my Maybelline Define-a-Line eyeliner as a base for my eyeshadow. It's creamy and smudges well and lasts long enough without creasing. Next I used the mauve shadow from the L'Oreal quad all over the lid, and used a fluffy brush to blend Urban Decay Buck into the crease. For the brows I used the beige shade from the Revlon quad. I went back to the L'Oreal quad and used the deep purple shadow as as a liner and in the outer v of my eye. I used a small angled liner brush to pop a little of the shimmery white shadow from the L'Oreal quad in the tear duct, just for some subtle shimmer and definition. Finally, I used the mauve and gold shades from the L'Oreal quad and smudged them underneath my lower lashes. I used a really fine line of black liner to emphasis my upper lashes before finishing off the look with mascara.

The finished look is gorgeous! Rich, warm purples and browns. I really love how this color combination flatters my green eyes.

I really love the L'Oreal quad, so much so that I've hit pan on the gold and mauve colors. It's a really versatile palette that you can get so many looks from, especially when you branch out and use other palettes in conjunction with it.

Do you have a favorite shadow palette? What shadows have you hit pan on recently?
