I Rarely Wear Eyeshadow, But the NYX Ultimate Utopia Palette Made It Easy to Create This Fall LookSeptember 30, 2020
Give me a liner and I can draw a cat eye with precision — But eyeshadow? I find it intimidating and time-consuming to apply.. There is one thing that will motivate me to experiment with eyeshadow, however, and that’s a good palette that contains colors that work well together, like the NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Utopia Palette.
Between the orange-y and copper browns, light mauves and subtle blues, the rainbow of options in the palette make it easy to pair shades together without too much thought.
I was super inspired by brown, red and orange shades in this palette, so I decided to stick with r that color story when creating my look. I began with Shade 39, a deep orange, and applied it all over the lid with a flat shader brush. I was immediately impressed with the pigmented color payoff. For my crease, I opted for Shade 27, a reddish copper, to warm up my eyes and to create a deeper, more vibrant contrast to the look. I applied this with a fluffier brush and swirled it into my crease and a bit above it for a nice round shape.
Next, I added Shade 19, which reminds me of a chai latte, and traced it along my upper and lower lash line with a tapered brush. This gave the look a little more dimension. To finish off, I applied Shade 26, a stunning golden glitter, to the center of each lid for a pop.
I finished the look with winged liner, mascara and a spritz of the Urban Decay All Nighter Ultra Matte Setting Spray. I’m happy to report that the shadow lasted all day without any creasing, smudging or slipping.
