At first look, you can tell the shadows in the Limited Edition Paris Palette by Sigma Beauty are so highly pigmented… Especially that blue!! It’s both navy blue and electric blue at the same time; just the perfect shade of blue to make your eyes really stand out. I know blue eyeshadow is difficult to use for many, (trying to avoid a throwback to the 80′s is tough!) so I blended the blue with a few of the other colors in the palette to create a stunning smokey eye. Here are the colors I used to achieve this look:
(refer to the photo below, from top left):
Eiffel – I used this super dark shade of blue (almost black) on the outer corners of my eyes up to my crease. This color took up about 1/3 of my lids and I used it over the brighter blue base.
Seine – This is that shockingly deep blue! I used this color wet so that the pigment showed up even more. This was the first color I applied, and I applied it all over my lids up to the crease.
Elysées – I used this maroon/plum shade to blend out both Seine and Eiffel. This color looks great with the blue and softens up the whole look.
Notre Dame – I used Notre Dame (wet) to achieve a nice highlight just at the center of my lids. I started at the center of my lash line and just worked up to the crease.
Rouge (blush) – This was the main blush color that I used.
Lumiére (blush/highlight) – I used this color to blend out my blush under my eyes and next to my nose. It gives a nice highlighting effect with that soft pearly pink.
NARS lip gloss in Chelsea Girls – One of my all-time favorites. A soft nude lip is perfect with this look!
