I had been lusting after the Lorac Pro Palette for a long time before I finally got it. You can buy this palette at ULTA, Nordstrom or Amazon, also check out my Lorac PRO Palette Review & Swatches post. Today I’m sharing 2 different Lorac Pro Palette tutorials, one for day and one for night!
For my first look, I kept things very simple. I was planning on spending the day doing not much of anything special at home, especially since I was on-call the night before and didn’t get much sleep!
I prepped my lid using the eye shadow primer that came with the palette. Note that while it is a light nude color, it doesn’t really offer any coverage, so if I’m not going to be doing a darker shadow look, I often will start with concealer all over my lid to cover up blood vessels (I did that this day), and then I used the shadow primer.
Next I used a fairly large brush to use the matte Light Pink over my entire lid in a wash. I went a little over my crease and blended it out from there. Next I used a crease brush to apply Taupe into my crease. I blended this out as well. I finished with a pretty decent application of black liner to my upper and lower lash lines, really working the liner into the base of the lashes. I finished up with Too Faced Better than False Lashes mascara.
After doing some things around the house for a few hours, I was a super lucky girl, and got to have a date with my husband, something which rarely happens in our toddler-centric household. (Ok, yes, it was lunch out at Panera. But! We were adults sans children!)
I opted for a golden smoky eye look, just something a bit more intense and with a lot of eye liner, which is something my hubby likes. I put this on directly over the day look above.
I started with Light Bronze on the inner half of my eye lid, and then added Gold to the outer half. I blended the two together in the center, and they did go up and over my crease. I still had Taupe in my crease, but it wasn’t enough contrast now that the lid was a bit darker. I put a little Garnet into my crease and then smudged this under the out half of my lower lash line as well. I finished up with a little more black liner on both lash lines.
