Julie Hewett is out with their limited edition holiday edition Boheme Palette. The palette surely brings out the bohemian mystique in you! The four colors are a Muse - base color, Vermeil - antique gold, Orchid - rose plum and Azure - navy blue. All are beautiful colors that will look good on a variety of skin tones. The quality of course is great with the shadows being highly pigmented and super soft. You don't even have to sweep your brush over it. Just a touch brings enough color for a look !

I used this palette to create a festive look. It is a festive season in India with the Hindu festival of Navrathri and the Muslim festival, Eid ! I created this look inspired by the long winged eyeliners that many Indian classical dancers sport. The antique gold from the palette makes for a great color for this look. Its also a great look for the upcoming Diwali !

The winged eye is totally optional. You could create a rounded end with the same colors and use the navy blue as the eyeliner along your lower lash line. The rose plum color looks great on the cheeks too ! The palette is very versatile and there are many things you can do with it.

Look Description:

I used Vermeil all over the lid. Applied NYX Bronze over it using a thin eyeshadow brush. I went over the bronze with Orchid and winged it out along with the vermeil and bronze. Use a blender brush and blend out each of the colors upwards so the lines are not harsh. Apply a shimmery white highlighter. Do the eyeliner, mascara, brows. That's it !

On the lips, I used Thevi cosmetic's Godiva. It is one of the most beautiful and complex colors I have seen. I have a little bit of brown, some plum, some pink, some gold - overall a pretty pretty color that compliments brown / dark skin very well ! On lighter skin tones it is great for a bold look.

wow how did you managed to put the eyeshadow so clear in your under eye lid, when I do it it appears so light and it hardly shows!

but the colour works so well
