Sponsored: ColourPop Matte About Hue Palette | 22 Ways to Wear It!
ColourPop Matte About Hue Palette can be worn alone, which I’ve shared 10 different color combinations for below, but it’s also a palette that pairs well with your favorite shimmers and other palettes that may need more colorful mattes to make them more versatile. I’ve also included seven ways to incorporate single shimmer shades, like Super Shock Shadows, with the palette and pulled some shimmers from their other mega-palette It’s a Mood!
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. Consider these ideas a jumping off point with four “core” colors that can inspire your next look. For reference, based on how I usually apply makeup, I would consider applying the shades in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease or lid.

These are always such fun. And since you put dupes in our heads, ray to do by shopping the stash.
I love when you do these!
And I think it’s telling that you chose to put the effort into making color stories for a new Colour Pop palette over the new PMG palette 😛 (of course that might be on the way and I might eat my words)
Oh, you know, I just reread the title and I guess “choice” is a little loose here
ColourPop wanted to do something, and I suggested putting together color stories since I felt like it being an all-matte and larger palette, it definitely could use some breakdowns 🙂
These breakdowns make this palette look so much less intimidating.
Glad to see them sponsoring a post with some combo ideas since you gave them the blueprint for this palette to begin with! I hope they can work with you on some palettes in the future. I love your Sydney Grace palettes for mid-range/indie eyeshadows and it would be great to also have some of your concepts at the drugstore/lower-priced end of the spectrum.
Thank you so much <3
Such gorgeous looks! I’ll be picking up It’s a Mood and Matte about Hue now–I especially want to do the looks Hue + Mood 1 and 5!
Ooh, they go together so well!
Your color stories are always so helpful!
I think it’s a really good idea that the brand has reached out to you (and a big compliment too!) to put together some possible shade pairings using the palette, as well as some of their shimmer singles.
It’s a huge palette and they can be overwhelming as to what works together. Good on you Christine – these look lovely.
Thanks so much for the support, Genevieve!
Great ideas. as always.
I really do like when you make these “quads”, I often find mega palettes hard to use just for all the options so these posts are very helpful.
I do like this matte palette, but there are too many shades I’d never use to make it an option for me. All yellow shades make me look very ill, pity, as I do like the colour itself.
Thank you, Helene!
That makes sense – it is definitely not a palette for everyone!
I love this! I do think I’m going to get the palette at some point and this will be helpful when I open it and am immediately overwhelmed. 😂
Thank you, Sarah! 🙂 Happy to help!
LOVE the concept of this and glad to see you sponsored! I have to repeat to myself that I JUST bought a bunch of Sydney Graces and don’t! need! more! shadows! Lol.
Side note, the database is great at convincing me out of purchases and keeping track – so, so, helpful and such a great resource for shoppers/the community.
Thank you so much! I still feel hesitant about sponsored posts, even though I know they are more “accepted” these days, lol.
