Eyeshadow is best tool to elevate any flawless base. So, during festival season, it’s time to ditch your over worked neutrals and focus heavily on saturated pigments! For our festival line-up, we’re showcasing some killer 18-pan, 12-pan and 7-pan Eyeshadow Palettes, equipped with base, transition and highlight shades for each section of your eye.
In the front row, our star is the 18-Hit Wonders Palette who’s here to deliver matte, satin and shimmer shades designed to inspire the most swatch-worthy looks. The key to getting the best out of this Eyeshadow Palette is by utilising your matte shades inside of the socket with a Fluffy Eye Blending Brush, your satin shades pressed on top of your mobile lid with the Eyeshadow ‘C’ Brush and your shimmer shades added into the corners with your Essentials Concealer Brush.
When planning a colour palette, this 18-pan Eyeshadow Palette is the right choice because you’ll have a rainbow of hues to cover any last minute outfit changes.
Second act is led by our Mad For Matte – Jewel Pop Eyeshadow Palette, best suited for those matte-lovers out there or anyone wanting to leave the sparkling to their outfit. When using this eyeshadow palette, think 80’s colour palette wonderland, ideal for shading and highlighting the eye. As seen in our campaign image using Pantone colour of the year Classic Blue, the 7th shade from your left is key to giving you major trend pay-off. Using this shade as the foreground and it’s complimentary warm-toned shades in the background, allows Classic Blue to take centre stage. We recommend mixing the 3rd and 6th colour to really amplify the contrast between both shades and give some healthy colour back into your skin.
There’s no finishing off our festival set until you see our Chromatic Eyeshadow Palette in Birds of Paradise. These colour coordinated luxe-metal finished pigments are best for the girly-girl who wants to go glam, but be fun. To tailor this eyeshadow palette to a festival look, swipe the 7th bright pink shade into the above and into your socket as your highlight colour, before transitioning deep into the socket with the 6th shade. Use the 6th shade once again at the waterline, to keep cohesiveness. To add glam to this look, the 4th shade is the perfect shimmer to buff out into the mobile lid before highlighting your inner corner with a fun yellow in the 1st shade. Want to know the most exciting aspect of this look? You can use this whenever you want during the year and it comes with a brush, perfect for touching up between sets!
