I have another Palette Bingo for you today! These have been my favorite kinds of posts lately, I am thinking of making it a weekly series on my blog. I just think it is such a great way to get use out of my palettes, especially the colorful ones where otherwise I might not be using them.
Today, I chose the Javia’s Place Masquerade palette! I have already done one other Juvia’s Place palette because these palettes are famous for being extremely colorful. I chose 4 random shades from this palette using a random number generator on Google.
Here are the shades that I chose:
11 – Cairo
5 – Makeda
15 – Casablanca
16 – Fulani
I have to admit. The shades stumped me for awhile. I didn’t really know what to do at first. Most of the colors that I drew were warm and then I drew the random purple shimmery shade as well. But that is what makes it a challenge!
I started out with Fulani and blended that all over my lid. I tried to keep it kind of light so that it didn’t muddy up any of the other eyeshadows but it was too pigmented and came out way darker than I wanted. Luckily it didn’t affect the other shades or at least not in the way that I was trying to prevent.
I then took Makeda and blended that in my crease and on the inner and outer sides of my eyelid. I wanted this one to be a little lower than Fulani so that you could see the gradient. I know this was a little bit of a strange strategy since Makeda is a slightly shimmery shade but I think it turned out well.
Cairo was probably the hardest shade to incorporate. Just because it is such a bright color but I wanted Makeda to be the main focus for this look so I just swept Cairo on the outer lower lash line.
And finally, I took Casablanca and stamped that on the center of my eyelid. I was so surprised that I didn’t need to use my finger for this one but it actually went on really well with a brush. I also took Casablanca on the inner half of my lower lash line just to even it out with Cairo.
And here is the final look!
I think it came together, this isn’t my favorite look ever but I don’t hate it. Let me know down below what you think of this look! Also let me know what you would have done with these shades. I would love to know!
