Mixing the Palettes


Hi guys!

I have a fair few eyeshadow palettes in my makeup bag at the moment. So for today’s tutorial I wanted to mix the around to create quite a warm/cool smokey eye. I loved the result and wanted to share it with you.



For the face, I applied my Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation using a buffing brush and beauty blender. Under my eyes I dotted the Bare Minerals Bareskin Concealer, blending this in with the beauty blender.

I set my foundation and concealer in place using the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder (which has now hit pan).

To add some colour back to my face I applied my Bare Minerals The Beach is Waiting Bronzing Palette in a figure of three on both sides of my face, concentrating the most product on my cheek bones. This is a much more subtle bronze than Warmth, so it’s great for a more natural looking contour.

As for blush and highlight I applied Benefit’s Coralista blush.


Okay, so the palettes I used for my eyes were the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani (GS), the MAC x15 Customisable (M) and Charlotte Tilbury’s Vintage Vamp (CT).

I first took Stark (GS) all over the lid to create a matte surface. I then took Espresso (M) and blended this into the crease. I warmed the crease further using Zone (GS), blending these three shades together so that there was no harsh lines in the crease.

In the inner corner I then used a mixture of Punk (GS) and Enhance (CT) and blended this out into the outer crease slightly. I then took these shades along my lower lash line, softening them with Anaheim (GS).

On the inner lid and inner corner I applied Prime (CT). This helped open up the eye and make me look more awake.

After filling in my brows using Benefit’s Brow Zings, I applied a touch of Blonde (GS) to my brow bone.

For liner I applied Charlotte Tilbury’s Rock n’Kohl Liner in Barbarella Brown. I smoked this out slightly using some of Smoke (CT).

For mascara I first applied Benefit’s They’re Real Tinted Primer (just on top lashes) and layered Charlotte Tilbury’s Full Fat Lashes on both my upper and lower lashes.


For lips I wanted to wear a brown lipstick. Unfortunately I don’t own one, so I mixed two shades together.

I first applied my Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Savage Rose all over my lips, overlining my lower lip slightly. Over this I applied the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita. Together these created a very warm earthy brown.


And that is the finished look. What would you like to see next?

Bye for now!
