Here is my first dive into the Danessa Myricks Lightwork 4 Palette. For this look, I paired it with the ColourPop So Jaded Palette because I wanted some colorful mattes to build some sort of “base look” with. The base of this look consists of a matte yellow in the crease and along the lower lashline, a deeper orange on the inner part of the crease and burgundy red on the outer part of the crease. I also used a skintone shade on the inner corner to help cancel out blue veining that was not covered completely by concealer. 

The rest of the shine and sparkle are just a few shades from the Danessa Myricks palette like icing on a cake. The main color I was interested in using was Nirvana, which has a reddish orange tone from straight on and looks more gold when seen from the side. And I thought the yellowy bronze and green in Zen would pair well, so I put that on the lower lashline. Slide through the photos and I have a couple at different angles, trying to capture the color shift of both of those shades. The inner corner highlight is a different, more sparkly formula and doesn’t have a color shift. There was some fallout from both Nirvana and Zen and I felt the need to tap the brush off a little extra before applying them. Both shades had excellent, opaque color payoff and a metallic shine.
