EOTD with Clinique Palette

I received this palette as part of the Clinique GWP at Myer a while back. With any spend over $60 you recieved a make-up bag full of goodies, and since I needed to refill some products anyway I decided to take advantage. The palette itself contains:

Colour Surge Eyeshadow Duo in Beach Plum (1.2g)


Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Smoldering Plum (1.7g)

EOTD I created with the palette

This is a super-quick eye I did the other day in an attempt to make use of the palette, which had not been getting much love. The Smoldering Plum blush from the palette was also used on my cheeks, but as my skin is acting out of late I'm not comfortable posting full FOTD's just yet.

How I created this EOTD: I began by covering both lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion, and leaving it to set. I then swept the lighter shade from the palette over the whole lid. I then grabbed my Napoleon Perdis blending brush and took the plum shade from the palette along my lash line and up into my crease. I blended this all out quite well which is why the plum isn't as vibrant as it could be. I lined the top lash line with Urban Decay liner in 'Zero', and coated my lashes with Maybelline's Falsies mascara.

I adore shimmery eyeshadows, though I know many people think a full-shimmery eye is too much. I find matte a little harder to work with, but am practising and will hopefully have an EOTD soon that works with matte shades. Hope you enjoyed my EOTD, it's not my favourite look but I am happy to be getting use out of my Clinique palette.

  1. The blush is a pretty colour :)

  2. It photographed really well, I would say it's not as sparkly as that in actuality, but really lovely nevertheless =)

  3. pretty! I love plums and golds together

  4. Thanks Jen, I'm loving plum everything right now=)

  5. Such a pretty look Emma, loving it. And your lashes are so thick, my god!

    Oh and re healthy mix concealer, i don't think it's thick enough for blemishes, probably better for undereye area.

  6. Thanks Lilit, my lashes are thanks to Maybelline haha. Okay cool, thanks for letting me know, I'm not in desperate need of an undereye right now but I'll keep it in mind when I do. xx
