As promised, here are some looks I've done with the new Spring 2014 NARS eyeshadow duos. You can see my review here.
I started with NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Calabria. As mentioned in my review, this helps intensify the colors. I then applied a highlight shade on the lid to prevent the color from sticking in that area. Next, I lightly tapped the blue shade in the crease and outer corner. Finally, I applied the purple shade over the blue, and then used it to blend and soften the edges.
Kauai - gold side only:
I applied the shimmery gold throughout the lid and crease. Then I blended the edges with a light matte brown shade, I used Taupe from the LORAC Pro Palette. Finally, I used a medium matte brown in the crease and outer corner (Sable) and a matte cream shade as the highlight (Cream). I kept it simple here, but I think it would look great with a crisp black winged eyeliner, or a black pencil liner smudged out.
Once again, I applied the shimmery gold throughout the lid and crease. Next I layered the purple shade on top of the gold, just in in the crease and outer corner. Last, I blended out the edge with a light matte brown, Taupe from the LORAC Pro Palette again. I really find that blending the edges of these metallic shades with a matte shade really makes it feel more complete.
