Soft Platinum Neutrals Eyeshadow Tutorial (88 Warm Palette)
Here’s a simple but still polished and defined look that would take you from work to casual settings. I worked with a pale platinum-gold, a charcoal and a dark brown. The only shade that isn’t matte is the pale yellow-gold, but even that is a satiny texture rather than very sparkly or metallic.
- Mature lids
- Hooded lids
- Mono lids
- Widening close-set eyes
Step 1: First use a flat brush to apply the pale white-gold shade* (there are multiple options in the palette; pick a matte cream shade if you prefer) and apply it to the inner half of the lid, under the socket line. If you have deep-set eyes, apply the pale gold 2/3 of the way instead of only 1/2.
*If you have very dark skin, you might want to try a warmer beige or a deeper gold as a pale white-gold like this would look quite chalky.
Step 2: On the outer half of the lids, apply a matte charcoal shade (look for something that is close to black but not quite). Blend gently into the pale gold.
Step 3: Using a softer blending brush, pick up a rich chocolate brown (if you are very pale, use a medium brown or taupe instead of a very dark brown) and sweep that along the arc of your socket line so it frames the charcoal and pale gold.
It’s important to remember if you are trying to widen or balance out close-set eyes NEVER to sweep a dark crease or socket color all the way to the inner corners.
Step 4: Use the flat brush once again and pick up a concentrated amount of the darkest brown or black, and run that along the lash line like a liner. Finish with black mascara!
