The final in my Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection tutorials is coming up today with the Dark Magic palette! This was the most adventurous palette for me and I am super excited with out this came out. When I watched other tutorials on YouTube most people when with the green and blue but I had a lot of fun just playing with the greens.
Lets dive into this tutorial!
Starting with the usual base I have prepped my eyes with concealer and setting powder to help the shadows blend better. I also made sure to start with my eyes first due to the dark shades so that if there was fall out I would get any on my foundation and have to start my face all over.
This hair do might look familiar-I was taking photos for my wedding Wednesday at the same time as I was doing this make up look.
And before I forget-The Dark Magic Palette!
Please don’t mind the fact that this looks beat up already. I accidentally got my nail in the Poof Shade and I of course had to swatch all of the shinny shades before I actually put it on my eye. Now for the look.
I started with the shade SHHH which is a nice cool tone soft brown color. This doesn’t really show up later on in the look but it’s really nice to create a soft bas to blend the other colors on.
Next I went in with the shade Potion. This is such a unique shade and I was slightly afraid to use it just because of how bright it looked in the pan but it actually applied to the eye softer and not as bright as it seems in the pan. This is a split pee soup green but in the crease it adds a nice depth to the crease.
In this next step you can see that I am starting to try and create what is called a halo eye look. This is where you take the darker shades on both the inner and outer corner and keep the bright colors in the center of the eye. I took the shade Inside Job which is this stunning dark emerald green and put this on my inner and outer corner connecting it ever so slightly in the middle. This can be a process for sure because you have to make sure to go back in and blend out these darker colors so you don’t create harsh lines. I had a fluffy brush with both Potion and SHHH on it that I went back I with multiple times to blend, blend and blend some more.
Now for my favorite part…shimmer! For this halo I eye I wanted to give two shimmers in the palette a try so I started with Trickery on the inner and outer corner just over the top of Inside Job. In this set of photos you can see in the top when I just applied them shimmer and then this bottom photo where I used Inside Job and SHHH to blend this into the crease for a smooth transition.
The center of the show for this one is this icy silver shade called Power Cut. This is a beautiful shade. I was partly hoping it had some more pop to it but none the less it is still stunning on the lid. By adding this bright pop to the center of the lid it really makes the eyes stand out and brings the attention to the center of the eye.
The final step was to take some of Temptress which is a very rich matte black on a definer brush and to create a shadow wing. I don’t normally do a wing in general so this was a big of a strange addition for me but I really like how it turned out. This matte black is also one of the most pigmented and dark shadows I have seen.
Here is the final look:
Even though this is strongly out of my comfort zone I am so happy with how this turned out! I love the smokiness and the shine of the silver! I have always been afraid of playing with greens and I find that these actually come out amazing! I hope you enjoy this look!
This is also the last of my Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection tutorials….for now that is! I hope you have enjoyed this series! It’s been so fun to try new things and really push outside of my comfort zone! Please leave me a comment and let me know if there are any other looks you want to see.
Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
