One Palette, Three Looks (series) Using the Marc Jacobs Beauty Scandalust Palette - Look #2

Welcome to the second look in my series using the Marc Jacobs Beauty Scandalust Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette. My skin has been unusually dry this week, and I was worried about how this look would come out.  However, the way this eyeshadow is formulated makes it so easy to blend, that even on a bad skin day, I was able to produce a cohesive look. This is the first eyeshadow palette that I purchased from Marc Jacobs Beauty, but it is my understanding that this palette contains a new eyeshadow formula for the brand. 
Here is how I created the second look in my series:

To begin the look, I dipped a fluffy brush into the color That's Why (matte orange-brown) and applied the color in a sweeping motion through the crease.  Switching to a flat eyeshadow brush, I dipped into the color They Call Her (copper) and applied it to my eyelid. I went back and forth applying more of That's Why to the crease, and They Call Her to the lid until I reached the desired intensity. 

Using a stiff dome shaped brush I picked up the darkest color in the palette called Little Miss.  I applied it to the outer corner of my eye taking it out into a V shape.  Then switching to a smudge brush, I picked up more of the same color to apply to the lower lash line starting at the outer corner and bringing it about 1/4 of the way in.

Switching to a pencil brush, I applied That's Why (matte orange-brown) along the entire lower lash line, blending it together with Little Miss.  For a highlight, I picked up a dense flat brush and picked up just a touch of the lightest color in the palette, Hot Pants.  This has a bit of shimmer in it so a little goes a long way.  I applied Hot Pants to the inner corner of the eye, and just below the brow.  I then used a clean blending brush to blend everything together. 

For more intensity, I chose Trish McEvoy's 24-hour eyeshadow and liner in the color Glamorous.  I used it to tight line and applied it to my lower water line as well.  On the lower lash line, I smudged it right into the lower lashes, blending the color out with a bdellium tools 777 brush

I did the eyes first for this look, applying my base after to make it easier to clean up any fall out.  For my base, I used Aveda Inner Light Mineral Dual Foundation, buffing it into my skin with a small flat kabuki brush.  On the lashes, I applied several coats of mascara from Milani.  For my lips, I applied Lime Crime's matte liquid lipstick in Red Velvet (true red, cruelty-free and vegan).  For added shine, I applied Cherry On Top Carousel Gloss (vegan) from the same brand.    

Here is the final look:

For blush, I used NYX Pinched (shimmery peachy-pink) along the cheekbones.  The above photograph does not have any filter on it, and has not been adjusted in any way.  The photograph on the left is without flash, on the right with flash.

I hope you enjoy this second look in my series.  Makes sure you are subscribed so you don't miss the third!
