#EssentialEyes: How To Create A Smokey Eye With Matte & Shimmer For Medium Tones

Intrigued by our palette but not sure where to start? We are putting together looks that are super simple and super fast. In our guide to “reading” an eye palette we talked how basic application is a 3 step process: a base layer, a highlighter & a contour shade. Depending on mood, preference and skin tone you can mix and match shimmer and matte shades to get a look you love. Jennifer here has a medium olive complexion so can make great use of the second matte tone in our palette as a base layer. To play it up for an evening look we add S4 the darkest shimmer shade we have in her crease and then highlight up to her brow bone with S2 as a highlighter. Fun fact S2 on very fair girl (think snow white)would be a contouring shimmer shade. Crazy right? That’s why we say it is all about learning to “read” a palette and come up with recipes right for you.  Go grab yours now!
