‘Tis the season for holiday parties, festive gatherings, and spending time with loved ones, and to that end, I thought I’d share some color combinations that might inspire your next look! As a bit of a twist, I pulled color combinations from past and present pre-made palettes along with some picks using single shades. This is part one (of three) and features more warm-toned, more gold and copper-leaning kind of looks. I’d love to hear what shades or palettes you’ve been reaching for this holiday season!
About This Series
Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.
You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!
