So for those of you who didn’t see my facebook update a few days ago, I definitely haven’t been up for eye tutorials as of late. I haven’t been sleeping ya’ll, I looked a hot mess. Not sleeping really comes across on my eyes despite my epic concealing powers & I didn’t want you guys to have to do that. After finally starting to feel better I promised to break out a fall eye look. & here it is! I picked up the Sonia Kashuk LE Jewel of an Eye Palette from Target on clearance but was thiiiiis close to buying it full price. Keep reading!
If you haven’t seen this palette yet then you’ve been missing out! Inside you get 12 shades, all shimmering. I have found I can also use them wet or dry which is a big bonus. Most of the shades are jewel toned & fall-centric. Very pretty overall & definitely seasonally appropriate.
For this look I actually took a request from my husband who said “You never use navy so I’ll go with that” oh so enthusiastically when asked for his opinion. Har har. I used the first two shades in the top row from left to right & the sapphire shade. I also used a blending shade from the Sonia Kashuk Eye on Neutral Palette which I reviewed here. Seriously, I love that palette & it is permanent. If you dig matte neutrals I highly recommend checking it out. This look is over Urban Decay Eye Primer in Eden as a base.
So there you have it! I did use the blue wet after finishing the look in the center of my lid then softly blended because it had blended out too much to be as noticeable as I wanted. This look was really fun & kind of an off take on a jewel-toned smoky eye.The middle area actually looks more blue in person but if you’ve ever photographed a purple…let me just say they aren’t super cooperative.
This eye look lasted all day without noticeable fading. I don’t have issues with fading much but sometimes wet shadows can flake & this remained quite pretty so I was happy with that! Plus, I just loved this color combo.
Do you own the Sonia Kashuk Jewel of an Eye Palette? Any looks you recommend or want to see on the blog?
