Beauty & the Chic: In The Moment

Right now I am loving STILA’s In The Moment Eye shadow Palette. Gorgeous Palette with 10 different shades to choose from...  
Instinct - Light baby pink with pink & white shimmer
Desire - Soft, creamy mid-tone pink
Impulse - Pale lavender with lavender shimmer
Wonder - Mid-tone flesh pink with shimmer
Glance - Intense violet with shimmer
Spontaneous - Soft beige-gold with shimmer
Improvise - Deep plum with pink sparkle
Whim - Soft warm reddish-brown with shimmer
Catalyst - Black with pink sparkle
Captivate - Mid-tone purple-brown with golden pearl

The palette is very versatile and can be worn day or night.  My day look usually includes the colors desire and wonder.  I keep it very basic and add more of the darker shades for a quick night look.  I typically apply a bit of whim to make a more dramatic effect.   An easy quick way to change your look from day to night if you are pressed for time. 

For this look, I used the top row of In the Moment, which is a gradation of splendid purples.  

Start with your darker colors and work your way to the inner corner of your eye with the lighter ones.  
Next apply instinct to your brow bone for a fantastic highlight.  
Now shape up your eyebrows with your favorite pencil or brow shadow.  
Line your eyes with the black liner of your choice and dust your lower lash line with the darkest color catalyst. 
Finally glam those lashes up with some mascara and voila, a gorgeous purple smokey eye!! 

The same look can be achieved using the bottom row if the purple is a little too colorful for you.  Using the browns gives a more neutral look and it will coordinate more easily with almost anything. 

In the Moment is definitly in my makeup bag this week!  Grab it at your local Ulta for $39.00 or HERE online for the same price. 

XOXO Rachel
