I have been playing around with my Chanel Ombres Perlées de Chanel palette to showcase a couple of looks here on Glitter Geek. Michelle from Lipstick Rules came up with the great idea of creating both day and night looks using the palette, so I present to you my two FOTDs. 🙂
Daytime and Evening Looks
This daytime makeup is all about the bright glowy eyes and a punchy lip colour. This look totally screams Springtime.
For the eyes, apply a matte taupe (MAC Coquette) on the crease and blend out softly. Take a peach pink (Pink) and pat all over the lid with the sponge applicator. Then, apply a shimmery gold white (White Pearl) on the middle of the lid only, as well as the inner corners and lash line to brighten the eye. Line the top lashes with a blackened green pencil (Urban Decay Stash), applying it thicker as you move to the outer corner of the eye. Line the outer half of the lower lashes with the same pencil. Where you lined with the green pencil, layer a greyish green (Green Grey) on top. Apply mascara (Rimmel Glam Eyes) to the top and bottom lashes.
For the cheeks, warm up the face with a bronzer (Annabelle Haute Gold) applied on the temples, cheeks and chin. Then, apply a shimmery peachy pink blush (NARS Deep Throat).
For the lips, apply a bright coral lipstick (MAC Crosswires). Top off with a shimmery lip gloss (Chanel Maline) down the centre of the lips only.
For the evening, I decided to go with a smoky eye and nude lips because I just can’t wait to show off Black Pearl from this palette. You can really see the nuances of this charcoal on my lid.
For the eyes, blend a grey base (Maybelline Define-a-Line in Slate Gray) all over the lid past the crease and lower lash line. Pat on a charcoal (Black Pearl) all over the lid with the sponge applicator to really pack on the colour. Smudge the same colour along the lower lash line. Take a plum purple (Deep Purple) to the crease using the sponge applicator, then blend out with a fluffy blending blush. Apply a matte warm brown (MAC Soft Brown) above the purple as a transition colour. Highlight the brows and inner corners with a shimmery gold white (White Pearl). Line the upper and lower lash lines with a creamy black pencil (Urban Decay Zero), then finish off with another coat of a volumizing mascara (L’Oreal Voluminous).
For the cheeks, apply a matte brown peach blush to the apples of the cheeks (MAC Cantaloupe, PRO). Contour the cheeks and temples with a matte dark brown (MAKE UP FOR EVER #17 Espresso).
For the lips, line with a neutral lip liner (NYX Natural), then finish with a nude peach lipstick (MAC Shy Girl).
I hope these show off how versatile this palette is. It really is an amazing palette to have because of the unique finish the eyeshadows. So, are you convinced that you need this palette yet? 😉
