Palette of the Week - The Star Treatment by bareMinerals

Part 2 - Favorite Makeup Looks

Here are a few of the makeup looks I created, using the bareMinerals Star Treatment palette.  If you don't have this palette, you can easily recreate these looks using similar colors you may already have in your makeup collection.  Or, get inspired with these application techniques and create your own unique look with completely different colors!


Look #1:
Colors Used:
Brow Highlight and Upper Eyelid:  Carte Blanche
Crease:  Elitist
Eye Liner:  Upper and lower lash line - smudged VIP close to the lash line using an angled brush
Lips:  Since it was a neutral eye, I went with a semi-bold, red lip.

Look #2:
Colors Used:
Brow Highlight:  Carte Blanche
Inner and Outer 1/3 of Upper Lid and Full Crease:  VIP
Transition Crease Color:  Elitist, blended above the black into the brow highlight
Center of Upper Lid:  Bragging Rights, packed on the center and then blended on either side into the black
Liner:  Smudged VIP close to the lash line with an angled liner brush
Lips:  Since the eye look was more bold, I went neutral on the lips and cheeks. 


Look #3:
Colors Used:
Base:  Before applying the powder shadows, I applied a bright, cream colored eyeshadow from Maybelline in Fuchsia Fever to the upper lid and blended it into the crease (be sure to blend well so there are no sharp lines/edges!)
Brow Highlight:  Carte Blanche
Upper Lid:  blended Connoisseur on top of Fuchsia Fever, creating a golden, peachy-pink shade
Crease:  lightly blended VIP on top of Fuchsia Fever, creating a deep plum color
Liner:  black gel liner (such as MAC "Blacktrack" Fluidline) applied close to the upper and lower lash line
Lips:  again I kept them fairly neutral with a mid-toned, rosy nude color

Hope you enjoyed that!  Now go and have some fun with your makeup today :-)
