This week I wanted to try something different.
I received this beautiful palette for Christmas, so I thought I would do a palette bingo to get a chance to play with the colours and use ones outside those I’m automatically drawn to.
For this Eyeshadow Palette Bingo, I decided to use 5 shades in order to create my look and used Google’s random number generator to pick the numbers.
I numbered the palette in a circle, starting with Ego (the pinky, shimmery shade in the top, left-hand corner.)
The numbers I got were: 7, 3, 16, 6, 15
3: Heavy Water
6: Electric Air
16: Fire Starter
Below you can see the corresponding eyeshadows:
This is the look I came up with:
As first I was unsure how to use both the plum/ red shades with the blue, but in the end, I think they worked really well together.
To accomplish this look, I first applied Antidote all over the lid as a base colour.
Second, I used Fire Starter to deepen up through the crease and outer corner.
I then used Lioness to further darken the outer edge and along the lash line. I also used this colour in my upper waterline as my eyeliner.
I packed Electric Air onto the lid and inner corner and blended it into the darker shades.
Lastly, I used Heavy Water under the lower lash line and blended it out.
