Wet n Wild Comfort Zone: 1 Palette, 7 Looks…
I thought it might be fun to really challenge myself, and see how many eye looks I can come up with using one palette. I plan to eventually do this with most of the palettes I own. I’m hoping that perhaps it will give you some inspiration to play around with what you have and try some new looks. :) If you have a request for a certain product/eye shadow, don’t hesitate to let me know!!
Hope you enjoy… let me know which one is your favorite!!
I started with this palette because it’s gorgeous and ridiculously inexpensive. I would suggest that anyone who is remotely interested in wearing eye shadow should pick up this gem. :)
For this first look, I basically just utilized the right side of the palette in the ways that each shadow is labeled. I did decide to bring in some of that beautiful rose gold shade though, and I do think it works well in this look. This look is perfect for fall… a green smokey eye with a touch of warmth.
- The first thing I did was apply this light olive green shade to my entire lid, stopping just under my crease.
- Next, I took that deep green shade and applied it to the outer part of my eyelid, as well as a bit into the crease. I tried to blend this well to create a smokey look.
- The third shade, that blue/brown duo chrome color is my absolute favorite, so I use it as often as I can. ;) I used this on the inner half of my crease (right above the light green), just for an unexpected pop of color.
- I used the last rose shade to blend out the crease area so everything looks very soft and seamless.
This look is a soft smokey eye using the lighter colors in this palette, as well as that gorgeous brown/blue shade, of course! I used one of the shadows as a liner because I like the softer look it gives to my eyes.
- My first step was to take the light cream color and apply it to the inner half of my eyelid, staying below the crease.
- I then applied the rose gold shade to my crease for some very light definition.
- I used the dark definer shade to draw a soft line along my lashes to act as a liner. I just used a small, angled brush to really pack on the color. I use shadow as liner quite often as it is easy to do and just creates a softer look than a pencil or liquid liner. It really all depends upon the overall look you want to go for.
- I used my favorite shade on the outer corner of my eye and a tiny bit into the crease. I really wanted this color to show up and I think it adds just enough depth to my eyes.
This my dark, vampy, fall look of the bunch! While I would normally pair this eye shadow look with a nude lip or something more neutral, I decided to go all out on this one. This look could be great for an event, party, or sexy date night. ;) Or, if you refuse to be subtle, as I often do, you can wear this during the day… perhaps even to the grocery store. Why not?
On my lips: Wet n’ Wild Megalast Lipstick in “Purty Persimmon”
This look was super simple to create!
- First, I applied that beautiful, dark chocolate brown all over my eyelids. I stayed below the crease, and I really was sure to pack on the color.
- I used that light taupe shade in my crease, to fade out the dark brown. This created a nice gradient, without any harsh lines where my eye shadow started and stopped.
- Lastly, I highlighted my brow bone with this light, cream shade. Yeah, that’s it!
I really wanted to make that blue/brown shade the star of this look. I did add a navy blue liner into this look, just to really bring out the blue tones in the shadow. You can totally recreate this look without that, but I just thought it added something a little special. I love how this looks like I used tons of shadows on my lid, when it’s really only that one that catches the light and looks so multi-dimensional. I truly believe that this whole palette is worth it for that one shade.
- So, to start the look, I applied the blue/brown eye shadow all over my lids. I packed it on really heavily and made sure to stay under my crease.
- Then, to blend out the color a bit, I took that rose gold shade and blended it all along my crease. I basically used the same technique as I did in the last look.
- Lastly, I used the light cream shade to highlight along my brow bone.
- I lined my upper and lower lash lines with a navy blue pencil eye liner, then, I took a small smudger brush and smudged the brown/blue shadow over the top of it.
This look is a subtle, neutral smokey eye that would be perfect any time. You can pair this with a natural lip, or I think a bold lip would go well too.
- I applied this browbone, cream shade all over my eyelid… really packing it on for max pigmentation.
- I took this warm taupe shade and applied it in the inner corner area as well as the outer corner. I kept the middle of my lid light, to create more of a three-dimensional look.
- Lastly, I took this deepest brown shade and used it to just slightly deepen the inner and outer corners where I applied the taupe.
- And, that’s it! Just add some eye liner and mascara.
This look is neutral with a pop of dark green in the crease. I thought the combination would work well together, and I wanted to utilize more green shadows in this palette.
On my lips: e.l.f. HD Blush in “Showstopper”
- First I applied this cool taupe shade all over the lid.
- Next, I took this dark green shade and applied it to my crease to add definition.
- The last thing I did was apply the cream shade as a highlight on my browbone.
- Of course, don’t forget your liner and mascara!
On my lips: Clinique Cream Blush Stick in “Rosy Blush”
- I packed the deep green shade all over my lids first.
- Then, I used a fluffy brush to apply the light green shade in my crease, and also to blend out that dark green shade a bit.
- The end! I didn’t add any liner or anything… just tons of mascara.
This eye shadow palette it totally “holy grail” status in my book!!
Which look was your favorite??
