  1. Dare to Bare would make a great highlight shade for the inner part of the lid!

  2. Mika Avila

    The lovely lavander one all across the lid with lots of mascara, some contour and rebel lipstick. <3

  3. Of all the shadows, I like Bossa Blue the best because it seems to apply like a neutral. I’d probably use it as a crease and outer corner colour, with a more flesh toned shadow on the rest of the lid and Stila Starlight on the inner 1/3.

  4. These would look so cute with some cute light summer scarf!

  5. Lisa Brown

    I would wear them anytime

  6. really nice stuff! thanks!

  7. A MAC rep at Nordstrom showed me how to mix these…dry…since they can be pretty light..over other shadows more as a highlight. That works with the lighter colors so I’d start with that….and I’m fascinated with the pinkish one …so I’d play with that one first!

  8. Laurie

    I pretty much use 2-3 shades from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. In the past, I used to also only wear no makeup makeup period, like, Boy by Chanel was my go to lip. Barely there lipstick, just pinky nudes and tinted lip balms. Now I have bright pinks and blue-reds and plums I like playing with. If I won, it would be fun to start experimenting with bolder eye looks. Of course, I’d probably adhere to the lips OR eyes rules! I still have plenty of subtle lip looks I can pair these bold eye shadows with.

  9. Bossa Blue on my eyes, angel on my lips!
