The "Classic Look" Recipe & Test Drive of Beautycounter's Velvet Eyeshadow Palette

We've been hearing low whispers, the clean beauty community, of a special release by Beautycounter. And to tease us even further, we've gotten glimpses of what it might be over social media posts these past couple weeks. Finally, the long awaited day has come! An All New Powder's Collection released by Beautycounter earlier today includes 15 new products total in the eye shadow, blush, highlighter and bronzer category.

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I had the awesome chance to photograph and to play with these products before their release. So in the next several weeks, I'll be sharing with you a first-hand-view of how they look when applied, make-up tips and tricks, and how to find an eyeshadow palette that will most complement your skin's undertone! Stay tuned!

Today I went on a test drive with my [now] favorite make-up product from Beautycounter - the "Classic" Velvet Eyeshadow.
Each eyeshadow palette (Classic, Romantic, Statement) has nine color options - each of them as pretty as the next. 
I wanted to try the Classic palette first because I thought these these warm shades would complement my Asian, warm/yellow undertones. And yes, PENNY, the golden shade in the center, when brushed on, shimmers like how you would imagine Cinderella's dress to be - pure fairly-tale magic. 

Here's how I pulled off the "Classic" look!

A make-up recipe using all Beautycounter Products

Tint Skin Foundation in Linen - apply all over the face after moisturizing and priming
Touchup Concealer Pen in Fair - use to hide blemishes and dark circles under the eyes
Luminous Highlighter in Halo - strategically place on the upper cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose and on the cupids bow to add a strobing effect
Radiant All Over Bronzer in Cabana - brush on under the cheekbones and under the jawline to give dimension to your facial features. 
Luminous Highlighter in Topaz - used as a bronzer around the outside of the face and for a sun kissed tan 
Satin Powder Blush in Melon - dab on the apples of your cheeks for a healthy rosy glow. 

Sable - darken and shape the eyebrows
Sahara - use as a canvas for the other colors and spread all over the eyelid
Bone  - highlight the brow bone and dab a little on the inner corner of your eyes
Burnished - apply just a wee bit of this color on the outer edge of the eyes and blended in towards the center
Cinnamon - with a chiseled brush, place on top of your eyeliner to soften the black and to set the liquid formula.
Penny - brush lightly on top of your entire lid to add a hint of shimmer

Last but not least, put on Color Intense Lipstick in Brunch and smear it with your finger just past your lip line for voluptuous looking lips! 

And Voila! There you have it - the "Classic Look" brought to you by Beautycounter.
