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
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.
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?
