Clarins Splendours eyeshadow palette - summer 3013 - photos, swatches, tutorial!

Well I did it.  After much will I won't I, I finally delved into the most gorgeous eyeshadow palette ever.  The Splendours eyeshadow palette with in built eyeliner makes me smile every single time I look at it.  Smile and want to invest in an Indiana Jones-esque whip so I can make that wha-tish noise that whips make and go off searching for relics and the like.

Anyway, I showed you lots of photos of it in my little preview post and today I'm showing you just one of the looks you can achieve with it.  I'm no make up artist, so if I can do this, so can you.  I sound like one of those home shopping network people don't I?

Anyway, behold the photo that brings the palette to life thanks to the sun!


Inside are four soft, blendable and very wearable eyeshadows and a brown eyeliner to add a bit more drama to your eyes.  Like all Clarins palettes, it comes with two sponge tip applicators, one of which has an angled brush at the end to use with the liner.  The four shades work so well together, being gold, champagne, rose and brown shade.  You can use them all or just one for a wash of colour and in the look below, I've used three and the liner.



Let's get to it shall we?
1. Apply the gold shade all over the lid and bring it slightly into the crease.  
2. Apply the brown shade into outer corner of the eyes and into the crease, blending it with the gold.
3. Apply the champagne shade under the browbone and in the inner corner of the eye to bring more light to the eyes.
4. Take the gold shadow under the lower lashes, blending it downwards and watch how your eyes change colour.
5. Using the angled brush, take the brown eyeshadow and take it right under the lower lashes, allowing the gold to show.
6. Using the angled brush, take the liner along the upper lashes, winging it out slightly at the outer corner.
7. Add your mascara and you're ready to go!

The Splendours palette is €39 and available on Clarins counters this month.  It's an absolute stunner folks and totally worth checking out.  I dare you not to fall in love with it!

  6. I personally don't think I could pull this look off, I'd have to use a different shade than the gold, but none the less OH MY GOSH it looks amazing on your eyes!
    The shades just look so great and suit you so well, what a great buy!
    Love the post

  7. I've never EVER wanted to buy an expensive high-end palette like this one, but now I do !! I've always thought that the eyeshadows were dull and not pigmented but this one rocks and it would be grand with my blue eyes... got to add this to my big wishlist ;)
    Thanks for making swatches too, I know you didn't want to "hurt" the nice sculpting on the shadows !

  10. I just bought this palette and bronzer, lipcolour yesterday, what a gorgeous collection. This tutorial was helpful as I have ble eye, fair skin. I find I am always intimidated with a new palette just digging in and starting to use it, so thanks glad I found your site
