Hey, Beauties! With the launch of our new Pro Palette - Summer Edit, we decided to challenge our team by picking a row or column in the palette at random and creating a look with it. This in total created nine different looks. Check out the shades of team dipped into and the beautiful looks they created. Of course, topped off with some of their fave OFRA lippies and highlighters.
I was challenged to use the first row. I started with the shade Trance on the outer V and in the inner V Dreamcatcher. This helped me blend prior to cutting my crease. I then used the Corrector Tri-Pot Lite, Beige Medium, Amber to cut my crease before applying Sublime on the outer part of the eye to blend it with Trance. I then applied Crush and Snooze to the crease to create a seamless blend. Threw on a wing with Verified and some HD mascara to finish off the eyes. Get into the lip combo- Chestnut Lipliner and Stretch Flexi Stlick.
I am definitely feeling the summer heat/glow vibes especially with the shades I got to use from Row #2 from our Summer Edit Palette! I first went in with Plastic all over my lid and then packed on the shade Peach! To add more dimension I applied Essential mixed with Raisin on my outer V and used Plastic again under my brow bone and inner corner! To finish my eyes off I used both our Eyeliner Pencil in Black and HD Mascara and of course filled in my brows with my holy grail Universal Eyebrow Pencil!
I picked Row #3 so I could do a cooler, smokey look with this palette. I started with Latte in my crease and then deepened the outer corner and crease with Millennium Bark. To make sure my edges were blended I used Apricot around my brow bone. I added Syrup all over the lid with some Makeup Fixer to make it super metallic. Then I used Bohemian for a fun gold pop in my inner corner. I blended both Syrup and Latte on my lower lash line to mimic the smokiness I had going on the top. I finished my eyes with our HD Volumizing Mascara. I used the shade Apricot as my blush to tie it into my eye look and the for lips I went for Bel Air pair with my bold eye look.
Summer time is my absolute favorite time of the year, and I absolutely love this palette! When the office decided to do looks using a single row of shadows from this palette, I was excited. Challenge Accepted! I got column 5. To begin, I used the shade Snooze all over the lid as a base. Next, I added a little bit of Charm to the outer V. Then, I packed Apricot all over the lid. I love this shade because it is very neutral with specks of glitter throughout. Lastly, I highlighted my brow bone using the shade Champagne. On my face, I used our newest trio, Sweet Electric, to perfect my cheeks. Finally, I went in with Bali lip gloss for the ultimate summer look!
I used the 2nd column in our new Summer Edit Eyeshadow palette. This row is very subtle which is great for me since I LOVE basic looks. I used the shade Latte as my transition shade which literally merged with my skin tone. I then cut my crease and used the shades Plastic, Dreamcathcer and truffle in that order from the inside corner of my eye to the outside corner. I also used a bit more of the shade truffle as a crease definer. I love this look because it gives me a nice pop of color but it is still a subtle daytime look.
This look was all summertime shine! The challenge with column 3? I had only shimmers to work with. Having a hooded eye, the "rules" always say to shy away from shimmers, but I wasn't going to let that stop me. I'm COMPETITIVE. I packed on Essential from the lid and blended into the brow bone and smudged it into the lower lash line. Then I used the deepest shade in the column, Syrup, and deepened the outer corner of the lid and the inner corner of the eye up into the hollow of the inner corner. This step is what gave depth to the eye, which I would have normally done with a matte shade. With my finger, I tapped Bliss into the center of my eyelid and the lower lash line without worrying about being perfect.
To add some color, I added Sublime on the lid with my finger between Bliss and the inner corner of the eye. Ready to go? Not quite. I completed this look with Bellini Blush (come on, did you think I was going to skip it?) and a hint of Bali Highlighter. For my lip combo I used Portland as a liner and Sedona to fill in the rest of the lip.
I love playing with new makeup! When I received this new palette and we all chose a row I said challenge accepted! I made it my mission to make a super pigmented, strong, beautiful look. I think I achieved it! I decided to create a Fox Eye Makeup Look with my row #8.
To create this look I started with the color Peach above my crease and on my lid, I followed that with the color Crush on the crease and next to Peach on the lid. On the outer corner of my eye, I used the color Syrup. In order to create the Fox looking eyes, I Used our Fixline Eyeliner Gel in black to define the inner corner then smoked it out into a wing to my outer corner using the color Victory. To define my face I used the Sweet Electric Palette. I used the color Blissful to highlight my cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and my cupid's bow. I used the color Crazy Pink on my cheeks and the top inner corner of my eye. I used Cocoa to bronze all over my face. Lastly, I used the Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick Hypno and topped it with the Lip Gloss Bali. That is my look and I hope you love it!
For this look I used the last column from Trance to Triple Black. I went for a summer nights look using Raisin in the crease, Trance on the lid, Millennium Bark in the outer corner and Triple Black as a liner on the top and to smoke out the bottom lash line. I love this neutral Smokey eye because it can go with so many outfits and occasions! I finished off the rest of my face with Americano Bronzer, Cheer Blush and Rodeo Drive to highlight. For my lips I used my fave Chestnut Lip Liner, Palo Alto LLLL topped with Bali Lip Gloss, the ultimate summer gloss! Lastly, I set everything in place with our Mattifying Makeup Fixer - perfect for my combo skin in the summer!
