I wanted to use the KKW x Mario eye shadow palette because it is full of plenty of neutrals, but also some fun colors! For this post, I just wanted to focus on how I did the eye shadow, so I kept all of my face products the same from my last make up tutorial post (Summertime Wedding Guest Make Up Routine)! Scroll down to check that out if you missed it!
And as a bonus, I’m including two eye looks using this palette! One with a pop of color, and one a little more neutral-glam! Enjoy!
Look #1: Pop of Blue!
For this eye shadow look, I started off by priming my eyelids with my Urban Decay Naked concealer, and then setting it with my Cover Girl Loose Translucent powder. I then went in with a fluffy blending brush (Morphe 533) with this light brown shade called Miami. I put this basically all over the crease and a little above to use as my transition shade.
Next step is going in with a smaller blending brush (Sigma E25) and a darker brown shade called Loyalty. I concentrated this color more on the outer corners of the eye and blended more in the middle of the crease. I went back and forth with the two brown shades until I built up the color that I wanted and it was blended out nicely!
Here’s the fun part! For this look, I went with a color that I normally shy away from and used the blue shade called Libra. I packed this onto a firm shader brush (Sigma E57) and then sprayed the brush with some setting spray. This gives the eye shadow more of a wet look and a little shinier. I had to go in a few times to build this color and then also had to touch up at the end once I was done with all of the eyeliner, mascara, etc, so you might notice a difference in the color intensity in pictures!
I then had to go back in with both of the brown shades to blend everything together so that it didn’t look too choppy with such a vibrant color on the lid.
I then did the whole face make up routine (again, find it by scrolling to my Summertime Wedding Guest Make Up Routine) and then finished under the eyes! I went in with the lighter brown shade on a pencil brush (Sigma E30) and blended that color into the lash line. I added my L’Oreal Voluminous black eyeliner into the water line, and then added my mascaras to the bottom lashes.
Just set everything with a setting spray and you’re done!
This is going to be much shorter, because literally the only thing that I changed from the first eye look is the lid color! Instead of the blue, I wanted more of a neutral-glam look so follow all of the crease-color steps, and then pack onto a firm shader brush the color Glam and spritz your brush with a setting spray. This color is a bit easier to build, so it did not take as much touching up as the blue! I really like how this look turned out and it is super easy!
