My Instagram is filled with people raving about the Makeup Revolution Chocolate Vice Palette and with it’s gorgeous shades it’s not hard to see why. However not everyone is an Instagram beauty queen and some of us have to tone down our makeup for work or school. When I buy a palette I like to make sure there is a ‘work friendly’ option amongst all the Insta worthy shades. The bright, very pigmented oranges and reds dominate this palette and they happen to be my favourite thing about it – how amazing will this be in the Autumn?! But I thought I’d share my go to, natural look for all you makeup lovers out there that need or want to tone it down. If you’re a makeup novice you can very easily practice blending with these shades as well.
1. Taking a fluffy eyeshadow brush, apply the highlighting shade Appeal from your crease all the way up to your brow bone. This will help highlight your brows as well as acting as a base for your crease colour.
2. Convert is a lovely matte shade that blends really well. Using the same fluffy brush, gently apply this to your crease and blend upwards. Use a really light hand and take the time to blend it into your highlighting shade.
3. Apply the shimmer shade Require to the centre of your eyelid. This beautiful peach colour is natural but will gently pop against your crease colour.
4. Taking your fluffy brush, gently blend a little more Convert into your crease so that the transition to Require looks a little more natural.
5. To add some slight definition, use a tapered eyeshadow brush to precisely apply Crave into the outer corner. You only need a tiny amount of product as it’s so pigmented and really take the time to blend it out. In the photos it doesn’t look as noticeable on my lid as I only wanted to add a little definition in this subtle look.
6. Take your fluffy brush and gentle blend into your crease so the transitional shade and outer corner blend seamlessly.
7. If you want to add some extra shimmer, gently wet your brush and dip it into Require. If you apply this to your inner corners, your eyes will really pop. I also blended the highlight shade Appeal into my inner corner to brighten my eyes.
8. You can then apply any eyeliner to suit you and then pop on some mascara.
I find that this look is so easy, it’s natural, subtle but still looks really pretty. I absolutely adore this palette and if you like this look, but want to see a more bold Chocolate Vice look, let me know in the comments below!
