The Look: Matte About You
How to: This summer, trade in your shimmer sticks for runway-inspired mattes. First, apply a cream primer like Smashbox Cosmetics 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer to increase your shadow’s staying power. Next, dip the palette’s dome-shaped brush into the A7 shadow, a rich burgundy. Fit the brush in the deepest contour of your crease and use a fluid motion to blend back and forth like a windshield wiper. Use a small detail brush to apply the same shadow along the lower lash line as well as in a soft V-shape at the outer corner of your eye, which will add definition and make your eyes look larger.
The Look: Moody Bronzed Goddess
How to: To get this date-worthy look, start by sweeping B10, a bronze with subtle sparkle, all over your lid. Then work B8, a soft rose gold, into your crease. Next, highlight the inner corners of your eyes with a touch of the B5, a soft, bright mauve. To finish, add another touch of B8 along your lower lash line.
The Look: Sheer Glory
How to: Use the palette’s frostier hues for this fashion-forward look. Prep your lids with a quick dusting of B4, a rose with flecks of sliver sparkle, from your lower lash line to your brow bone. Then, work B2, a soft cream into your brow bone to make your eyes pop. Now the for the piece de résistance: wet a slim, angled eyeliner brush, dip it into B4, and trace it along your upper lash line to create a shimmery effect.
