The NARS Spring 2016 collection, Nouvelle Vogue, is all about…
MAKE UP FOR EVER has teamed up with Andreja Pejic and Jamie Chung to release two beautiful Artist Shadow quads ($56 CAD) to inspire you to Be Bold. Be Unexpected. Be You. I received the Andreja one to try, and let me tell you… it is gorgeous.
Keep reading for details on how you can win your own personalized Artist Shadow quad, complete with your face on the packaging!
These quads come in a cute little tin, about palm-sized. Absolutely perfect for travel and touch-ups.
I can imagine filling this with a bold pop of colour, a blush, a highlight and a contour crease shade. What holds the shadows in place is a soft, flexible foam, making it durable yet easy to switch things out (unlike some of the other palettes I have that are impossible to move shades around).
The Andreja Pejic palette comes with four FULL-SIZE shades, three are Iridescent and one is a Diamond sparkle.
I526 Pearl Beige (Iridescent) is perfect for highlighting under the brow or in the inner corner. I also use this as a cheek highlight.
I662 Amber Brown (Iridescent) looks like a beautiful bronze pop of metallic on the lid.
I544 Pink Granite (Iridescent) is a pretty warm taupe great for in the crease or on the lid.
D652 Celestial Earth (Diamond) is a rich deep, brown sparkle good for defining the crease or lashline.
Breathtaking, right? These are very light 1x swatches. The Artist Shadows are so pigmented and smooth with no fallout. They wear well all day long over primer and the colours are true to pan.
The first look I did centered round the Amber Brown shade on my lid.
I blended it out into the Pink Granite and popped a bit of the Celestial Earth in the crease for definion.
I’m also wearing Pearl Beige under my brow and on the top of my cheekbones here.
For this look, I focused more on the Pink Granite, wearing it all over the lid into the crease. I then popped a bit of the Amber Brown on the lid for depth.
These shades are natural and versatile. I can wear them in several different ways to create different shimmery looks. And I love the Pearl Beige to highlight all my features.
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadow Quads are $56 CAD (value $112) available at Sephora.
