One Palette, Three Looks (series) - Using The Jeffree Star Cosmetics Thirsty Palette - Look#1

Feeling Thirsty?

Jeffree Star released a colorful eyeshadow/pressed pigment palette this summer that had everybody talking. A nice break from the usual neutrals many brands put out, the Thirsty palette brought color back to summer. 

While I am a fan of Jeffree Star's YouTube videos,  this is the first product I purchased from his company. 

The top and bottom rows are filled with large matte eyeshadows, with metallic pressed pigments in the center row. 

The formula on these eyeshadows is very different than I am used to. The matte shadows are finely milled, allowing for easy layering of colors that blend like a dream. The metallics really need a glitter glue and/or damp brush to perform at maximum capacity. That being said, when using a glitter glue, the metallics paint on like liquid metal. 

Look #1:

For my first look, I really wanted to dive into the bright yellow in the palette, called Quench

Using a blending brush, I patted a light layer on the inner corner of the eye, blending it on the front of my lid.

Using Subtle, a cool-toned brown, I coated the rest of my eyelid, merging it with the yellow to get more of a mustard vibe. To warm up the crease, I used Biiiitch!, a bright coral. 

To keep the look wearable, I mixed Drizzle (chocolate brown) with Subtle and applied the pigment along the lower lash line with a pencil brush. 

Parched (matte ivory) was used as an under brow highlight, along with black cream liner on the top lash line and mascara completing this matte eye look. 

I kept the rest of the look pretty natural so the eyeshadow was the focus.
