I have wanted to do a tutorial with this palette since I got it last month! The shadows are really smooth and buttery. They blend like a dream!
I wanted to do a slightly edgier eyeshadow look than normal. I didn’t want to copy Gwen’s style completely, but I used only this eyeshadow palette for the actual eye look.
Let’s get on with it.
◊ Face ◊
Okay, so to begin the face, I buffed my Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation into my face. I patted away any streaks using a damp blending sponge. Under my eyes and over any redness, I then applied my Bare Minerals Bareskin Concealer. This is an amazing concealer and a little really does go a long way. I then applied a fair bit of Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder to set everything into place.
To bring back some colour to my face, I applied Bare Mineral’s Warmth under my cheek bones and across the temples, then any excess got swept under my jawline.
As for blush, I used a touch of Urban Decay’s Afterglow Blush in Video. I concentrated this on the cheek bones rather than bring it up to the apples of my cheeks. I then added a touch of highlight using my Bare Minerals Secret Radiance across my cheek bones.
This finished the face makeup.
◊ Eyes ◊
Now onto my favourite part!
I first applied the shade Stark across my lid to neutralise any redness and prime the lid. Then, on a damp eyeshadow brush I applied the shade Punk to the lid, taking it just below the crease line. I then applied some of the same shade dry to blend out into the crease. I added any excess to the lower lash line, leaving no gaps between my upper and lower lashline. Punk is a very dark burgundy brown. It’s beautiful.
I then took the shade Steady and applied this over the top of Punk to add a touch of shimmer, blending out the edges with a clean fluffy brush. I took this shade over the dark brown on my lower lash line to diffuse it slightly. In the inner corner of my eye I applied the shade Baby.
Once I had filled in my brows using my Benefit Brow Zings, I applied the shade Pop to my brow bone.
To add a touch of liquid liner, I used a wet liner brush in the shade Blackout and applied this really close to my upper lash line.
To tightline my eyes, I applied Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Liner in Demolition. I didn’t want any gaps of white in this look, and this matched the Punk and Steady hybrid shade quite well.
Finally, I applied my Benefit They’re Real Tinted Primer and Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascaras to finish the eyes.
◊ Lips ◊
To finish the look, I used one of the free sample lipstick pods that came with the palette to copy Gwen’s statement red lip. I picked the shade 714, applying with a lip brush.
And that is the finished look! What do you think of it? I hope you have as much fun with the palette as I have.
Bye for now!
