My personal eyeshadow palette

In my beauty stash I have some eyeshadows and lots of eyeshadow samples. But what I’m really looking out for is a green (organic) palette that fits my colour range. Here it is, my personal palette to start with, if someone would ask me!

I would start with a really nice white duochrome eyeshadow with violet-and-blue reflections. It is Purple Ice
from Zuii and works really well as a highlighter. But it can also be layered onto every other colour to give it a violet and not-so-matte finish. It is buildable from soft reflection to noticeable effect.

Next, there would be the ChriMaLuxe Minerals eyeshadow in Eggplant. The colour is purple with a hint of lavender and combines nicely with the purple-white highlighter. This is a matte one, but as I said, the Zuii white gives every shadow a soft light reflecting finish.

I really like duochrome eyeshadows combined with matte ones, so the third one would be a Zuii again. Mermaid is a bluish green (or greenish blue) duochrome colour that shifts to golden-yellow. Nice!

Dr. Hauschka has a palette with neutrals, and I picked the third colour, a matte, cold to neutral soft brown. It is almost taupe, especially when you only layer a thin coat on your lid. It helps to blend colours and gives a silky soft contour to your eye.

Not to forget a warmer brown tone, also matte, from Une natural beauty: S09. This colour is the only warm one in my palette as I do not like too much warmth in my make-up. It is very versatile, though, and makes a good start for a brown smokey eye.

The last colour would be a matte Black from ChriMaLuxe. It is the blackest black without shimmer or glitter, and it can be (carefully) mixed with all other dark or matte colours to darken them. It works great as eyeliner, too, you can apply it with a wet eyeliner brush.

Not to mention single use, what can you do with these six colours?

  • Eggplant as main colour, highlights with Purple Ice, Black eyeliner.
  • Mermaid with Hauschka (Mermaid in the inner corner, Hauschka in the outer corner of the eye) and eyeliner of Eggplant mixed with Black to a very dark Taupe.
  • Hauschka, Une and Black as smokey eye
  • Black and Une blended together on the movable eyelid and also smudged into the crease for a dramatic smokey eye, and on top of that a layer of the duochrome shadows Purple Ice and Mermaid (Mermaid onto Black, Purple Ice onto Une)

For the time being I wait for the Lily Lolo palettes to be available, and I laid my eyes on the Zuii Glamour palette. So who knows what future will bring?
