If you’ve followed me on Instagram (which you should! @natplewamakeup), then you’ve probably seen these two looks! I recently got the Jaclyn Hill Vault Collection and decided to try out a couple different looks to give you a little review on it! There are so many different looks you can achieve with these four palettes, but today I’m going to show you how I used three of them.
The first look I created is this smokey forest green eye look. I used Dark Magic for this one and it was super easy! As always, I used Tarte Shape Tape as my base then set it with a translucent powder. I started the eyeshadow with a transition color, using “SHHH,” then began to blend “Potion” into the crease along with it. I deepened the outer corner with “Inside Job,” then finally added a little bit of “Temptress” to make it even darker. For the shimmery lid color I threw on the color “Power Cut.” I repeated all of these steps on the lower lash line and made sure to smoke it out. Since there wasn’t a color in this palette that I wanted to use on the inner corner, I used the ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in “Here We Go Again.” I think the yellow adds a pop of light to the eye look and I’m very happy with how it finished the look off!
Now using the Bling Boss palette, I started with “Hush Hush” as my transition color, making sure to bring it high up on my eye. I knew I wanted to do something different, so I decided to try a spotlight eyeshadow look with these fun colors! On both the inner and outer thirds of my eye, I started adding “Rockstar,” then darkened it with “Mystic.” For the spotlight part of my eye, I mixed “Ballsy” with “Glitz & Glam” and the color turned out beautiful! I also wanted to try the Armed & Gorgeous palette, so I used the shimmery white, “VIP,” on my inner corner. I also threw a little bit of glitter onto the center of my lid to make it even more bold, and I used ColourPop’s Supernova Shadow in “From the Valley” to do that. It took a lot of blending and reapplying shadow to achieve this look, but I love how it turned out in the end!
Overall, I think these palettes are absolutely gorgeous! You can really accomplish any look you want with all the different colors you get. I will admit, these were a little bit hard to blend at times, but I think the looks turned out so pretty! I would wear either one of these out and I would recommend trying out these palettes to anyone who wants to experiment with different colors!
If you want any more advice on how to apply eyeshadow with the same techniques and brushes I use, definitely check out my previous post on the basics of how I do my eye makeup. I’d also recommend checking out my post about dramatic eye makeup and different techniques I use for that, especially if you want to amp up your look a little bit! These looks would so so fun if you use the glitters I posted about! Let me know if you try these looks or these palettes on your own; I would love to get your feedback!
