Sometimes I get in such a repetitive cycle with eyeshadow palettes, that I only use the same shades over and over and over. I picked up the Tartlette in Bloom palette the other day, having not touched it for a few weeks, and immediately went for a smokey eye look using at least one shade I hadn’t already used before.
If it’s helpful to watch a video to see how I apply eyeshadow when I’m going for a darker crease look, you can watch this! The shades are different, but the method is exactly the same.
I started with “firecracker” all across the lid, then applied “activist” in the outer corners and up into the crease just a bit. I grabbed a smaller eyeshadow brush and pressed “funny girl” right on top of my eyeliner (and this is the technique I used to apply that!) and blended everything out with “charmer”. And to finish, I applied “firecracker” at the base of my lower lashes just to add a bit of depth under my eye to round out the shape.
I loved the look! The shades in the palette show in the images online are much warmer than they look/wear in real life, so just keep that in mind. The final look was rich and chocolatey, with shimmery warm copper/gold all across the lids and lower lash line.
