They’re from the Too Faced Natural at Night palette! It’s a gorgeous, dark neutral collection of buttery eyeshadows. I highly recommend it!
Too Faced Natural at Night Eyeshadow Palette - $36 - Sephora or online here
Hello! Well the champagne eyeshadow will be easy, there are lots of really pretty and affordable ones.
Covergirl Eye Enhancer in “Champagne” - $4
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow “Iced Latte” - $5 (Stila “Kitten” dupe)
Also check out NYX Single Eyeshadow in “Blondie” and Maybelline Expert Wear Single Eyeshadow in “Champagne Fizz”
As for the cranberry color, it gets a little more tricky to find one, especially at the drugstore level. I love that shade on the eyes.. it’s very fall appropriate and enhances every eye color. There are a couple affordable ones to choose from, and I also recommend trying out blush on the eyes. Some blushes look really gorgeous on the eyes, because many have pretty golden shimmer to them.
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow “Glistening Garnet” - $5
NYX Eyeshadow “Rust” - $5
Also try ELF Baked Eyeshadow “Burnt Plum” and Wet n Wild Color Icon Blush in “Berry Shimmer”.
Hope that helps! :)
Review + Swatches: NYX Love in Rio Eyeshadow Trio “Caipirinhas on the Beach”
What it is: NYX Cosmetics blue eyeshadow trio
What it Costs: $6
Similar to: Nars Cap Ferrat Trio, $45 (disc.)
Quick Verdict: Thumbs Up
This colorful little trio caught my eye during a recent trip to Ulta - the shades scream summer, and I’m not quite over the warm weather and sunny days! This is an eyeshadow trio full of bright blue shades that are buttery and soft.
Hey Beauties! Check out this awesome double tutorial done by ChrisspyMakeup on YouTube using bright, fun colors from BH Cosmetics’ NEW 60’s Palette! This is two looks in one. Also check out the BHC palette (only $10.50!) on their website, BHCosmetics.com :)
Hello! When working with bright colors, the absolute KEY to the look is the base you put underneath. I highly recommend using a white, cream base for your eyeshadow (or a colored base to match the main color of your look whatever that may be). The cream base will give the eyeshadows something significant to stick to, and will help them show up as vibrant as possible. You could use some concealer as a base if you don’t have any cream products on hand, but remember that less is more (if you use too much, you’ll experience creasing).
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in “Milk” - $4.50
Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow - $6
Using bases will help brighten even the poorest quality eyeshadows and make them appear more opaque. However I still recommend using an eyeshadow primer underneath the base (yes they’re different, see how on this post) to prevent creasing and extend wear time.
The brushes you use are also important. Understand that when working with bright colors, the blending process can take a lot more effort than with neutral shades, because you don’t want to create a clash of color. Use a nice, dense shader brush (flat eyeshadow brush) to pack color onto the lid, and fluffy blending brushes to help soften the edges and create a gradient. You are going to be doing a lot of adding color, blending out, and adding color again (color takes patience!). One of my favorite ways to cheat at blending is to use a face powder on the outer edges of the color to help soften and create the perfect fade!

Now I’m not sure if you were actually looking for colorful eyeshadow recommendations? But here are some anyway, haha!
Wet n Wild Color Icon Trios - $3 each
These are soft, buttery colors and come in all different shades! Great for experimentation!
ELF Brightening Eye Color Quads - $1
Don’t let the itty bitty price tag fool you! These tiny quads actually have pretty soft, pigmented eyeshadows… they are much better quality in comparison to some of ELF’s larger palettes, which are very powdery.
Here is a GREAT video by GoldieStarling on YouTube on the technique for blending lots of colors together, I think it might be helpful to you! »>Click«<
I hope this helps you! Good luck, and be bold! <3
Hi hon! Everyone’s eye color is unique and different. There are a few shades that would really accentuate the bright colors, the blue and the green.
First, try orange - a trendy version right now is coral. Coral looks awesome on all eye colors, but because orange is opposite blue on the color wheel, it will really make your eyes pop!

Warm metallic shades will also bring out the color of your eyes, like gold or rose gold.
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow “Amber Lights” - $6
Purple shades are also very flattering for your eye color (it’s the neutral color, it works great for all eye shades). Purple will accentuate the green and deepen the blue.
Wet n Wild “Petal Pusher” palette - $5
Hope this helps you! Have fun!

Beauty on a Budget: Wet n Wild “Comfort Zone” Eyeshadow Tutorial
Smokey Eyeshadow Look using greens & browns.
YOU WILL NEED:
- Wet n Wild Color Icon “Comfort Zone” Palette - $5
- Eye Primer and/or Base - I used the ELF Essential Eyelid Primer ($1) and the BH Cosmetics Correcting Eye Primer ($10)
- Pencil Eyeliner (Black or Brown) - I used Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil “Underground” ($19)
- Liquid Eyeliner (Black or Brown) - I used the Elite Models Matt Liner “Brown” ($15)
- Mascara - I used Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes “Blackest Black” ($3)
Hi hon! Unfortunately I feel the same way about ELF palettes (next time try the single eyeshadows, they’re soooo much better!). You can certainly still find ways to use your palette though!
The easiest way to make the eyeshadows have more opacity is to dampen your eyeshadow brush. You can do it with a bit of water, or setting spray if you have some. Then pack the eyeshadow onto your lid - you should be able to get a lot more color payoff and product onto your eyes.
The second, and probably most effective method, is to use some kind of base underneath these eyeshadows. You can use any creamy product, from a cream eyeshadow or gel liner to just an eye pencil. Using a cream base, depending on the color, can also help you make cool new shades on your eyes.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in “Milk” - $4
(The most popular and coveted eyeshadow base!)
Hopefully that will help you out! Don’t give up on it just yet :)
I’m a sucker for neutrals, so I have TONS! But here are my favorites (as in, the ones I use regularly):
LORAC Pro Palette - $42
All time favorite! Best high end palette for your money, hands down.
Urban Decay Naked Palette - $50
This isn’t the most popular palette in the world for no reason!
88 Neutral (or 88 Warm) Palette - $16ish
So many colors for such a good price. And they’re actually good quality! (You can get them at bhcosmetics.com, also Coastal Scents, Shany, Sedona Lace, Crown Brush, etc. They’re wholesale palettes)
NYX Caviar & Bubbles palette - $10
Unfortunately this palette has been discontinued. NYX has other great neutral palettes, but this was the best!!
Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette - $5
I don’t use the greens much, but I’ve hit pan on all of the colors on the left side!
To be honest, I’ve used just about every different eyeshadow primer out there (both high end and drugstore versions) and I’m never actually blown away by the difference in quality by any. I certainly don’t think that you need to spend a lot of money on eye primer! Sure there are subtle differences.. thicker formulas versus thinner ones… but I don’t think any (reputable brands, I should be saying) necessarily work better, it all depends on personal preference.
So! Drugstore options that I love and use often:
Wet n Wild Eye Primer - $4
NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer - $5
ELF Eyelid Primer - $1
L’Oreal De-Crease - $6
Hope that helps! :)
