Ariel Storylook palette look: FOTD

Of course the first night after I tracked down the Sephora Ariel Storylook palette, I had to create a look using only those shadows.

This is what I came up with.
I don't have a lot of pictures for this because I was at a friend's house (I literally couldn't wait to get home) and didn't have the best lighting. But I think you can still see

I created this look using the following shadows of the palette:

First color I used was Sea Witch, the purple at the bottom right. This went on my lid over Urban Decay Primer Potion, and over Nyx's eyeshadow pencil in Milk. 
Next, I took dabs from both Flotsam and Jetsam, mixing the two together to create a smokey look that wasn't black. I think these colors worked really well with Sea Witch, even though they have blue and green undertones, I thought they looked good together.
To highlight below my brow bone and to brighten the inner corner of my eyes I gabbed a dash of Sick of Swimmin' (not circled, but in the middle of the 2nd row from the bottom, and Sea Shells

The look ended up looking only subtly smoked, but I still liked the tinge of darkness on the edges
I didn't use eyeliner, which is pretty rare for me. I just smudged some darker shadow in the outer v.

So this is the first (and so far, only) look I created using my Storylook palette. I look forward to mixing some of the brighter colors with some neutral colors to create some stunning color combinations. I think what I love most about the palette is that the colors work together well. You don't need anything else than this palette if that is what you are using.

Is this something you would wear out? Or is the purple a little too bright for your taste? Let me know in the comments, and again let me know if there are any colors you'd like to see a look for!

  2. If I wasn't doing a No-Buy August I would have totally picked something up. It was my fav movie as a child. My mom was literally sick of it! haha. The purple looks great!

    1. oh man, the no-buy would be out the window so fast for me...wait, what am I saying? I've never even done a no buy- if THAT tells you anything about my self control! haha! It was definitely one of my favorites too. I'm sure you were that child that wanted to watch it over and over again as soon as it ended :P I believe I was like that too!
