It seems I can never get enough of an eyeshadow palette. Everytime I buy one or get one from one of the PR companies its like Christmas has come early. I am totally loving the new Body Shop Down To Earth palettes that come in a whole variety of shades. I got my hands on this grey shadow palette in no 3 which is a combination of grey’s. The best way for me to test out products is or on a shoot so that’s what I did. I did a beauty portrait shoot with 5 gorgeous girls and for the palette I created a smokey eye on Janke.
The no 3 Body Shop Down To Earth palette (R400) has 3 gorgeous shades of great one is matt and the other 2 have a metallic texture. Plus a light pink shade for highlighting on the eyes and the face. To create a more sultry smokey eye you will need a black Kohl eyeliner. I used my Gosh Black Ink Velvet Touch Eye liner to really create the intensity around the eyes.
Take the matt grey shade and apply all over the lid up to the grease. Take the darker metallic shade and work into the crease and wing out to create more intensity on the outer corners. Then with a flat brush take the lighter metallic shade and place on the centre of the lids. Apply the matt grey shade along the bottom lash line and then take the eyeliner and apply on the top and bottom lash and blend. Finish off with lots of mascara and voila a gorgeous grey smokey eye.
