And we are now coming to part three of my Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection Palette tutorials!
This Friday we are taking a look at the Armed and Gorgeous Palette.
This is more of a unique color scheme with lots of gold and orange. The pop of green is a lot of fun as well. For me, this palette was a stretch outside my comfort zone. I find it fun to play around with these kind of colors just because it’s forcing me to think outside of my box and do something different! So I played around and this is the look I came up with! I hope you enjoy it!
For the look today I started off with my full face already on just because I was getting ready for work and was running kind of late, so it was easier to have my face on and then quickly do my eyes!
The easiest transition shade in this palette to start with is called Access. This is a yellowy orange shade that is bright and really starts the look off with a pop and warmth!
Next up I used a couple more transition shades to help deepen the crease and the outer corner. I for some reason forgot to take a photo when I used the deeper shade but none the less I did add it in to the lower crease for depth which you’ll be able to see later on. So first I used Secure which is a deeper orange shade to add in more warmth and then followed it up with Smooth Criminal which is a warm, warm brown to add in that little bit of depth to the outer corner before I went in with shimmer shades.
I had some fun with the shimmer shades in this look and really tried to make a gradient effect over the whole lid. I started with Classified on the outer third of my lid going over those shades we had already laid down. This shimmery gold has some deeper green and gold reflect to it and comes off almost like and aged gold.
Of all the shades in this palette this one is probably my favorite! In the center of the lid I laid down Gilt Trip. This is the most flattering fold on my skin tone and the one I like to use when I’m creating gold looks! The shade is softer than the other two in the palette and has so much shine I love it! I will note all of these shimmer shades I did apply wet.
My inner corner is slightly tricky for me-I tend to get build up for some reason- so I don’t always like to apply shadow way down into the inner corner but this really just complimented the look. I used the shade VIP; a stark white shimmer shade to help with the gradient and to really brighten up the look! Because it is so stark white I did tap some of Gilt Trip over the top of the just to calm it down.
The final step I took with this look was to take some of the shade Prowl on a fluffy brush and not only deepen up the outer corner some more but also to run a small amount of it through the crease to help the shimmer shades blend nicely into the crease. I thought about adding in some green to it but was scared to because I was heading to work and I felt like the green would make it too much of a bold look to wear for work.
Here is the final look!
This was very much a different look for me but I really like the end result! I feel like these particular shades really pulled out the blue I have in my eyes and make them slightly less green than they normally are. I’m hoping to try to play with this one some more and add in some of that beautiful green color!
I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial! And I’ll be back next Friday with my final vault collection tutorial!
Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
