Glinda

The Glinda Palette may look pale and boring, but it’s got some hidden gyms.  You can create many different looks with it.  This look features the shades that originally attracted me to this palette.

Get This Look:

Iridescent shadows come alive when used on a dark base.  I decided to use a dark plum paint pot as my base.  If you don’t have a shade like this, the eye liner pencil that came with this set (Rockstar) could be used.  I applied the paint pot with a synthetic brush (Sigma E55) onto my lid and up to my crease and onto my lower lash line.  I blended out the edges with softer synthetic brush (Sigma E70). 

I put the pink shade of Aura on the inner third of my lid with flat shader brush, which reflected quite nicely.  I needed more oomph for the camera, so I dampened the product with Mac’s Fix+ while it was still on my brush, then applied the shade.  I did the same with the blue shade of Aura and put it on the center of my lid and blended it into the pink.  I blended out the edges of these shades using a skintone color from my crease up to my brown bone.  With a Mac 239, I applied Tornado onto my outer corner and blended it over.  I also put Tornado into my crease and ran the brush over the outer third of my lower lash line.  I used a tapered crease brush and blended out Tornado with Magic.

I applied South onto the inner third of my lower lash line using a pencil brush.  Illusion was used as a brow highlight, but it’s a bit too frosty for my taste, so I toned it down a bit using a matte shade.  Rockstar is the perfect color for any look created with this palette.
