3 Basic Looks ft. Kat Von D Shade+Light Eye Palette

In today’s post, I am bringing 3 very simple and classic looks using Kat Von D Shade+Light Eye Palette (review HERE). As a “non-makeup artist”, my criteria for recommending of the palette comes from its everyday usability. This post is for all of you who like more natural looks and matte eyeshadows. I want to show you how to create very basic looks using each quad of eyeshadows which are available in the Kat Von D palette. All looks are perfect for every day and super easy to re-create. Obviously, if you do not have this palette, you can take this as an inspiration for simple matte looks for every day and re-create them with whatever eyeshadows you have.

Kat Von D Shade+Light Palette contains three quads of eyeshadows, each of them is harmonised into either neutral or cool or warm colour spectrum. Each quad contains all over lid shade, highlight shade, crease shade and deeper liner/smoky shade.

For each look, I made the same steps:

  1. apply the shade from bigger pan all over the lid
  2. use the second darker shade in the crease
  3. use the darkest shade along the lash line
  4. apply the lightest shade under the browbone

And that’s it. It cannot be more simple 🙂 See the results below.

Neutral Quad

Very natural, almost “no makeup” makeup look. Perfect even for those of you who do not like makeup on everyday bases but need a simple, almost invisible, makeup look for special occasions.

Cool-Toned Quad

Very elegant, a bit darker look which brings your eyes into the light. Perfect for everyone who likes a sleek and polished look for everyday use or even for nights out. My personal fave 🙂

Warm-Toned Quad

Very warm, reddish toned look which brings up the blue colour in your eyes. For me, it sevokes late summer and autumn to me and I will definitely wear it a lot during that time.

I hope you like these simple look and get the better idea about colours which are available in Kat Von D Eye Palette. Obviously, you can combine them together as you wish but I particularly wanted to highlight the quad’s options that you have within the palette.

In one of the next posts, I plan to use this palette for more dramatic and intense look. If you are interested then stay tuned and do not forget to subscribe.

Thank you for coming today!

Have an amazing day and be inspired!

Cheers!
