After using the Wet n Wild 8 Pans for the Spring 2014 collection & finally getting the review up this morning I figured it was time to show you my version of an orchid eye look with this palette. For those who don’t know, Pantone is the be all end all on trendy colors & this palette is right smack in the middle of the Orchid shade named the big honcho this year. Keep reading to see how I put this look together!
All shades are applied over primer- seriously do not even attempt this without it! These shades blend away without it. Check out my review & swatches of the Flirting at the After Party palette & the Walking the Red Carpet Palette as well. Both are limited edition & were released for Spring 2014 so if you want one of both snag them while you can.
The base of this shade all over my lid is the R eyelid shade which is the truest orchid in this palette. I applied a bit of the R Crease color in my outter corner to define it a bit & a tiny bit of the R definer in the very outter corner of my eye. I didn’t use a highlight from this shade because it really needed a matte, the shade I used was very close to the Wet n Wild single in Creme Brulee. The shade that makes this eye look for me is the R browbone shade for me personally- I applied it with a bare fingertip to the center of my lid using a soft patting motion. Because it is practically a shifter shade it really adds some light to the look. I added a bit of the R browbone shade to my lower lashline at the very inner corner & a touch of the R crease shade blended under my lashline to the outter corner. I topped it off with a bit of winged eyeliner & mascara for a night out.
I wore this out for a date night with my husband, he’s a big purple fan on me! I really like the way it turned out too. On my cheeks I have my Butter London Cheeky Cream Blush in Honey Pie which I love & reviewed here along with a few other shades. On my lips are some new NYX lip products I’m trying- the NYX Butter Lipstick in Fizzies & the NYX Butter Gloss in Sugar Cookie.
What do you think? How have you rocked the orchid trend so far this year? Remember to check out my full review on this palette here!
