On this day I ended up with a neutral eye look that has both warm and cool toned elements using the NYX Ultimate Utopia Palette. I used to feel like I could only wear warm shades or cool shades but not both together in a look and that is totally false. In fact, I think mixing the two is really what makes some looks most interesting.
Btw, the second photo in the slider is the unedited version. As much as I try to be a perfectionist, there is nearly ALWAYS some type of fallout, mascara smudges, dust particles, random brow hairs, etc. that show up. Sometimes those things aren’t even noticeable in person but the camera picks them up.
NYX Ultimate Utopia Palette Shades Used:
- Shade 12 – Outer crease, outer lower lashline
- Shade 8 – Inner crease
- Shade 15 – Inner lid
- Shade 16 – Center of lid (tiny bit of fallout)
- Shade 30 – Outer lid, outer lower lashline (This shade was quite hard to work with. It was resistant to blending and wanted to just STICK where I initially applied it.)
- Shade 3 – Brow bone, also used this to clean up around the edges on the outer part of my eye
This look took longer to do because of the deepest grey. The outer crease got blended further out than I intended because of all the blending I had to do to get it to look smooth. All the other shades seemed to work just fine.
