Hi Everyone!

I finally have a new tutorial for you and it’s extra-special because it’s a collab with the lovely Chelsea from Lush4Blush. If you haven’t checked out her blog, you really should because she does awesome reviews and Ipsy Sneak Peeks! We both got the Mega Pro Palette and we decided to each show you a look that you could make pretty for day and then spice up for night. So head on over to Chelsea’s blog and check out her look HERE!

Here is a look at the palette, just so you can follow along with what shades I’m using.

Day Look

Okay so for day time I wanted to keep it very soft, simple and neutral- perfect for school, work or pretty much anywhere!

Step One

To start I used a mixture of Fawn and Camel above the crease as a transition shade. This helps to make everything look smooth and to add dimension and warmth. It’s not too noticeable, but it makes a difference in the overall look.

Step One

Step Two

Now it’s time to add the main colour to the lid. For that I’m going to use Smokey Topaz, one of the shimmer shades from the palette. To really enhance the metallic element of this shade, I first wet my brush with some Fix+ and then dipped it into Smokey Topaz. Once it was placed on the lid, I blended out the edges to make it nice and smooth.

Step Two

Step Three

To add a little dimension to the lower lashline, I took Brown, a matte shade from the palette and pressed it into the lower lash line. I picked a medium brown, as I didn’t want this to be dark for daytime.

Step 3- Day

Step Four

To add a little something something for day, I opted to add winged liner. If this is too much for you, skip it or just don’t wing it out.

Step 4- Day

Step Five

I added mascara to finish the look!

Night

Now it’s time to make this look a little edgier for night. I wanted to pick something that you could do quickly and easy, to switch it up in a hurry.

Step One

The first thing I did to deepen it slightly was take Espresso from the palette and blended it into the the outer v and about halfway into the crease to deepen it slightly. You could make this as smokey as you like. I chose to keep this still soft, as I want the emphasis to be on the lower lashline.

Step One- Night

Step Two

To add some subtle drama to the look, I added a half lash to the outer half of my eye. I sometimes find that full lashes are a bit much (and hard to apply in a hurry), but a half lash is just enough!

Step 2 Night

Step Three

Now onto the main feature of the look! A good way to quickly switch up a look is to add a pop of colour! I LOVE the shade Deep Teal in this palette, but I’m not fully ready to take the plunge and use it all over the lid, but I love it as a pop of colour. To really intensify this shade, I’m going to start by using a Hunter Green Eyeliner from Tarte, in my waterline and smudged onto my lower lash line.

Step 3- Night

Step Four

Now it’s time to dip into Deep Teal. In order to get the most colour with minimal fallout, I used a flat definer brush to really press this into my lower lashline. I did this from inner to outer corner, but how far you go is completely up to you. I also used the brush to follow along the shape of the wing with Deep Teal to add some extra interest. I then smoothed out the lower lashline with a pencil brush. If you should happen to make this too smokey for your taste as you’re blending, just clean up with a q-tip. This completes the look!

Step 4- Night: Finished Look

I hope you enjoyed both of these looks and don’t forget to head on over to Lush4Blush and check out Chelsea’s looks!

    I wish I could do eyeliner πŸ™ Looks so pretty. I wish the Lorac palette was easier to get a hold of here in the woods πŸ˜›

      Practice, practice practice and you’ll get it! Ya a lot of people couldn’t get their hands on it unfortunately.

        I live in Norway, so trying to get a hold of it has a probability of zip!

        I have tried and tried, but somehow I’m more likely to poke my eyes out πŸ˜›

          Haha have you tried tape to use as a guide for the wing? That helps

          • MaggieMay November 21, 2014 at 12:41 pm

            Considering I poke my eyes just by doing a single line – I’m not sure if adding tape might make me loose my lashes!
            Incompetent big time!
