Sydney Grace x Temptalia Radiant Reflection: My Favorite Palette Pairings

I thought I’d share some color combinations using the Sydney Grace x Temptalia Radiant Reflection Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.76 oz.) paired with other palettes. Of the three, this palette is one I very much envisioned as a way to complement your existing stash by adding more colorful shades.

The palette itself has a mix of warmer and cooler shades, so it works well with other, more colorful palettes but also many of the warm-toned neutral palettes that have released over the years. More golden and neutral-toned neutrals pair best with the cooler shades, like the right side of the palette, while warmer, more orange/pink/red-toned neutrals pair well with the left side of the palette.

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.

Love seeing these pairings, especially with the Coconuts, since it’s a great neutral palette to pair with such beautiful rainbow palette! Also loved watching Karen Harris’ video using RR and the other palettes. So excited for this launch!

Am excited to see your ideas for combining this with ND bronze. While I love that palette, it doesn’t contain a lot of color variety and it can be hard to get different looks. Am thinking to combine some greens and teals from your collab with bronze, too, maybe.

Hi Christine! I really want to get all of your pallets, but I don’t understand how to buy them! I checked the Sydney Grace website multiple times and I can’t find them there! What do I do? (English is not my native language, so I might have easily overlooked something!) Thank you so much in advance! I really admire your work in the makeup industry and I’ve been following Temptalia for years! ) I absolutely need those pallets! ))

Pairings with a palette I own! What fun.
Even though I don’t own more than one of the pairing palettes I have loved to see how you work in other colours into looks with your creations. I’m often a bit boring, doing gradients of the same-ish colour so I feel I need to see these quad look ideas.
I own It’s My Pleasure I should add. 🙂
