So we’ll never be royals, but it looks like Lorde…
Can you bring yourself to dig into the beautiful, intricate designs of the Dior Fall 2016 Skyline 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palettes?
806 Capitol of Light is “an array of warm and luminous browns unfurls around pink.”
With such delicate and soft shades in this palette, it’s easy to create a subtle pinky pastel look with the plum shade for definition. These are shimmery and a bit sheer, but not over glittery more of a glow.
Swatched top row, bottom row, centre. The first shade, a shimmery taupe, is probably my favourite of the bunch. It’s perfect to deepen the crease and transition out to the lighter vanilla shimmer. The pink was a bit of a disappointment though as it was too sheer to really show up on the lid as you can see below.
A subtle, soft and shimmery pink and taupe eye look using all five shades from the palette. Easily blendable and very buttery shadows.
506 Parisian Sky is a “harmony of pure blues and cool beiges radiates from a steel grey.”
I don’t normally go for minty blues but this one is so delicate and pretty!
Of the two palettes, I’d say the formulation on this one is the more pigmented one. The top row are beautiful warm golds in a gradient for you to create the perfect crease transition. The bottom row has my two fave shades: a sky blue shimmer for the lid and a deep warm plum brown shimmer for definition. The silver in the centre had a more sheer colour payoff, so I popped it in the inner corner.
I used all five shades for this look as well. I found the formulation to be a bit creamier on this palette… and that sky blue shade is a stunner.
