Two Looks: Daytime and Evening Makeup Using Chanel Ombres Perlées de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette.

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

Daytime Look

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.

Evening Look

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? 😉

  • SOOOO PRETTY! love how versatile this palette is. oh, and crosswires is gorgeous! was it an LE item? i feel like i’ve never heard of it.

    • Thanks Dani! Crosswires is permanent colour. It’s a Cremesheen. 🙂

  • This post is absolutely fantastic! You look stunning in both looks, I absolutely adore the night-time eye with the toned down lip – simply gorgeous! x

    • Thanks so much! It took a long time, from putting on makeup to taking photos to removing it and starting all over again. That’s my whole Sunday, sadly. 🙂 I do like the evening look better, too!

  • Wowzers they are gorgeous looks. I especially love the night time smokey and how great it looks with your pearls!

    Ok, I’m convinced 🙂

    • Thanks Jen! I had to pull out all my fake pearls for this look LOL! 🙂


  • Both of these are gorgeous looks. Oh man, now I am tempted by this palette.

    • I don’t know what to say: “go for it”, or “but what about your no buy?”

      Ultimately I will say it is AMAZING though. Not too much for the pigmentation (it’s okay), but for the finish. 🙂

  • Fantastic looks! You are one GORGEOUS woman! All hail Chanel!

    • Thanks lady! All hail Chanel indeed! 🙂

  • Bug

    I love how you apply your makeup! It’s always impeccable and your lips always look gorgeous! The evening look is definitely my favourite. 🙂

    • Thanks so much, Bug! 🙂 Yours too!

  • I love both looks! You are so uber talented. Thanks for the link love!


    • YAY! Hope you try them. 🙂

  • Arianne, i just L-O-V-E your evening look, esp. your lips!! I Never knew that Shy Girl looked so good!
    Did you apply gloss on top or does it always have that decent shimmer? Or is it plain reflection on the mid-lower lip?

    • Thanks! That’s Shy Girl just on top of a lip liner. No gloss. It’s just a very creamy lipstick. 🙂

  • aaahh,.. will have a look at Shy Girl the next time I’m over at MAC then.
    The Chanel palette IS gorgeous,… 🙂

  • I just stumbled onto your blog. You are so beautiful and I love your high-quality photos! Plus, your makeup application is wonderful.
    Love that you have a combo of smoky eyes/pale lips mixed with barely their eyes/bright lips. Some artists stick to the same old look.
    Keep it up!

    • Thanks Shannon, and welcome to Glitter Geek. 🙂 Hope you come back!

  • Rae



    (Seriously, though – it’s not fair! You always look perfectly flawless. :))

    • I practise my face angle. True story. 🙂 Also, it’s all about the fake pearls.


  • Oh my goodness you are so pretty! Thanks for the look. I have a question what do you take your pictures with I can never get my eyeshadow to show up right?

    • Thanks Meghan! I use a Canon G11. I shoot in macro mode and RAW, and I also colour correct in iPhoto/Photoshop.

  • What a lovely pair of looks, I love how the looks aren’t just building from one into the next. This palette definitely has versatility. :]

    • Thanks! And yes, that was exactly what I was going for. I wanted to pick and choose the colours for each look to show off the palette’s versatility.

  • Love both looks Arianne! You are just too gorgeous!

  • I luv both looks! You look absolutely gorgeous!
    I need to try this out soon with my own palette!

    • Yay I hope you do, and come back with some photos! 🙂

  • You look so gorgeous Arianne 🙂

    I am absolutely obsessed with this palette. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • I love, love, love the evening look… wish I could replicate that… but unfortunately I’d probably make myself look like a panda!

    • Practise makes perfect! 🙂 Build slowly so it isn’t overwhelming. Sometimes when I do a smokey eye, I start looking like a panda, too, but keep working at it and blend blend blend to make it work!
