Back to the Original: Lorac Pro Eye Looks

 

There was much hype surrounding the (very limited) release of the Lorac Mega Pro Palette, as was there when the Lorac Pro Palette Two came out a few months earlier. I didn’t purchased either of those palettes. A fact that I considered strange given that my love for the original Lorac Pro Palette is so strong. Truthfully, I did ponder the Mega Pro but debated too long and it sold out.  In the end, I think I’ve held off because the original just does it for me. It fulfills all of my needs and I don’t feel that I’m lacking in anything option-wise when I use it. It’s just so versatile with everything required to create a beautiful eye – from mattes to satins and shimmers. Additionally, I really enjoy the creamy, blendable formula. That’s probably why I included it in my “Top Ten Makeup Products”.

So, I thought, in appreciation of the original, I would share with you two Lorac Pro eye looks that have been my favourites for the season.  First, let’s take a moment to admire it’s beauty (and I cleaned this time):

It really is stunning and makes a perfect gift, if you’re in the market for one. Side note: I think I’m starting to get a better grasp of the lighting situation when it comes to photographing eye looks. I photograph in natural light . In the past, my eye looks have looked somewhat washed out – with the brightness of the colours not showing as true to “real life” (what I am seeing in the mirror).  I’ve since discovered that too much sunlight is probably the culprit. So now, I still photograph in the natural light but I think I’ve found a time of day, angle and “spot” (so to speak) that works a little better. It’s still not where I would like it to be, but I’m hoping it’s an improvement. 🙂 Now onto the eye looks:

 

Lorac Pro Eye Looks

 

“Golden Autumn”

 

Back to the Orginal - Lorac Pro Eye Looks - Look One

“Golden Autumn”: Sable, Gold, Garnet, Espresso, Lt Bronze and Cream.


 

What I did: Sable all over the crease as the blending/transition shade; Gold on the inner half of the lid as well as blended along the inner portion of the lower lash line; a light application of Garnet on the outer half of the lid as well as blended along the outer portion of the lower lash line; Espresso to deepen the crease; Lt Bronze as the inner corner highlight; and Cream on the brow bone. I used Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Lionfish to line the lower water line as well as the upper water line, taking it in about 2/3 of the way.

 

“Winter Skies”

 

Back to the Orginal - Lorac Pro Eye Looks - Look Two

“Winter Skies”: Mauve, Nude, Pewter, Deep Purple and Lt. Pink.

 

What I did: Mauve all over the crease as the blending/transition shade; Nude innermost portion of the lid as well as blended along the inner portion of the lower lash line; Pewter on the outer 2/3 of the lid as well as blended along the outer portion of the lower lash line; Deep Purple to deepen the crease; Nude as the inner corner highlight; and Lt Pink on the brow bone (will a smidgen of Nude dusted lightly directly under the brow). I used Stila’s Liquid Liner to line the upper lash line with a small wing and used Nars Via Veneto (with a light hand) to line the upper and lower lash line.

 

 

Do you guys think the Lorac Pro Palette is as amazing as I do? What is your all-time favorite eye shadow palette?

      It’s definitely on my top list of recommends – just so versatile and effortless! 🙂

  1. This looks great. I love the colors.

      Thank you hun! I’ve been loving it as always. 🙂

  2. Hey Kimmy, GREAT looks!!! I am partial to Golden Autumn since it’s a warmer look 😉 I can see how well-loved this palette is! I don’t use big palettes often, so I have stopped buying them altogether (my wallet thanks me for that). However, when I travel, I pack one of the Naked palettes I own (I have 1 and 2). It’s nice to have all the shades in one place 🙂

      Thank you so much, Sunny. That means a lot coming from you. You know, I actually don’t own any of the Naked Palettes! I was thinking of taking the deep plunge and purchasing the Vault (as one of the few people that don’t own anything from that line( – but of course, it sold out so quickly. 🙂

  3. Oh wow, this palette really is stunning! I love the mix of finishes and how you’ve created a warm & a cold look! Most palettes seem to focus on one or the other!

      You’re right, thanks for pointing that out, Karen. I forgot to mention how this palette offers a range of cool and warm tones! And thank you for your kind compliments. 🙂 xo

  4. Both looks are really beautiful, and so is that palette. Gorgeous.

      Aww, shucks. Thanks, Melissa! xo

  5. Love your looks! The second might be my favourite but they’re both gorgeous! This palette looks so stunning and yours looks so well loved, and I have to say it appeals to me more than the newer ones. 😉 xx

      Did you notice I cleaned it this time? Hehe. Thank you for your kind words, Gyudy. The original was definitely the best!

  6. This palette is so pretty but we can’t get it in the UK. Having said that, the truth is I think it’s very similar to UD Naked 1, which I have and love. So probably wouldn’t buy it anyway. But if I didn’t have the Naked 1 I’d definitely buy this one instead. I love the fact that the top row is all matte and the bottom one shimmery. Loads of options for every occasion. x

      Thank you, Renata. I’m thinking it’s time to invest in one of the Nakeds? As you say Naked 1 is so close to this one, I wonder if I should go for 2 or 3? Any recommendation on which route to take? 🙂

      1. I’d go for the Naked 3. 😉 x

    Totally agree with you! The original Pro Palette is my fave! I skipped 2 and the Mega Pro. No regrets! Love the looks you created – especially the purple!

      Thank you, Karen! Exactly, no regrets. The original is the best! 🙂

  7. Ohh my, Kimmy! I must say you left me rather jelly – I’ve been wanting the Lorac Pro Palette for a very long time, and seeing your 2 eye looks have left me even more eager to get my hands on it in some way! Both of the looks are so beautiful and I wouldn’t be able to pick a favourite.. I love them both!

      Aww, thanks sweets! I just wish everyone could have access to everything – its so annoying! Hehe. There are some sites that ship internationally, though it can get costly depending. It is a great palette though. xo

  8. Your photos look so great! So do your eyeshadow looks 🙂
