Open the palette and take a look at all the amazing colors!
You can open the palette and take a look at all the amazing colors! Look at how beautiful they are. You will want to use them on yourself immediately, but first let’s take a look at what the packaging looks like.
Start with a matte cream shade as a base to help the other colors show up.
Start with a matte cream shade as a base to help the other colors show up. This is called a "primer," and it helps the shadow stay in place, prevents fallout, and can be used on its own as a highlighter or on the eyelid and brow bone.
It's easy to get overzealous when you're swatching colors, but take it slow! You might want to flip through the palette before adding any eyeshadow to your face so that you know what each color looks like without putting too much on at once.
It's also good practice to wait until all of your shadow has been applied before moving on to the next step (like finishing touches).
Pair matte shades with shimmery shades for extra depth.
I think it's important to make sure that when you're using matte shades, you don't use them on the same part of your face as shimmery shades.
The reason for this is that a lot of people tend to look at their eye makeup first and foremost, so if you have something in your matte collection that looks really similar to something else in your collection, it can clash with other products.
For example, if I'm going for a shimmery smokey eye look with my Color Vibes palette and then I add another one of my palettes into the mix—say Urban Decay Naked 2—I'll probably end up with a messier look than intended because they're both full of dark browns and blacks.
So when you are choosing what colors to use together from different palettes or different brands (if you have more than one), make sure that they complement each other instead of clashing!
This also works with body care products like lotions or perfumes: pick two different scents and layer them together so they smell amazing.
If there's an SPF factor involved (like with sunscreen), keep in mind how sensitive your skin may be; some people react badly when applying too many chemicals at once so try out only one product at a time until you find which ones work best for YOU!
Mix pink and orange for a peachy look.
Colors like pink and orange are known as complementary colors, meaning that they're opposite each other on the color wheel. Use a matte pink and a matte orange (or vice versa) to create this look. Use the pink on your lid and the orange in your crease.
If you want something more dramatic, use one of these shades over another shade in the palette or use two different eye shadows entirely! As long as they're different enough from each other, they'll look great together.
Try a purple and pink combo for a playful look.
Mix pink and purple shades together to get a playful look that can be worn to the office or out on the town. The best part is, you don't have to worry about blending too much! The clay pigments in this palette help keep everything looking fresh and natural.
Here's what you'll need:
- Your favorite pink shade from the VIBES palette (we used #05 Pink Flamingo)
- Your favorite purple shade from the VIBES palette (we used #10 Purple Rain)
Add glitter or metallic to the center of your eyelid for some extra sparkle.
- Add glitter or metallic to the center of your eyelid for some extra sparkle.
- You can add a little bit of shimmer to the center of your eyelid for extra sparkle by taking a brush or your finger and applying a cream or liquid shadow base. A good choice is NYX Cosmetics Eye Shadow Base in Clear, which will help keep the color vibes Amazonian clay eye shadow palette from creasing throughout the day.
Use some neutral shades to highlight your cheekbones and brow bones.
To highlight your cheekbones and brow bones, use some neutral shades. For example, if you want to highlight your forehead, use the lightest shade in the palette on the outside of your face and blend it inwards. Highlighting helps create a more defined appearance by making certain areas stand out more than others.
To apply color to these areas, use a brush or your finger to tap on the product and then blend well using a sponge or brush (if you're using fingers). Remember: less is more! You don't need much product on either application method; just dab it on lightly so as not to overdo it.
Mix some of the darker colors in with lipgloss to create interesting lip colors.
Mix some of the darker colors in with lipgloss to create interesting lip colors. Use a brush to apply the gloss, and then use a lip brush to apply the dark color on top of it. You can also use your fingers to smooth out the color, as well.
Spray your brush lightly with water before applying shadow to intensify the color.
You can also use water as a way to intensify the color of your shadow. When you spray a clean brush lightly with water, it will help the product stick to the brush more easily and make it easier for you to apply it.
Just be careful not to spray too much water onto your brush, or else it may drip down your face when applying!
