Your Cafecito Eyeshadow Palette has arrived?! OMG This is too exciting! You want to TRY ALL THE COLORS! Where to begin? Here’s a quick guideline to make the most of your palette.
On a clean, primed and prepped face, you can start building your look with the following steps:
STEP UNO: HIGHLIGHT WITH LIGHTER SHADES
Shimmery shades like Horchata Latte or Chai add a dramatic highlight while milky mattes like Leche de Coco subtly brighten!
Your brow bone and inner corner are the ultimate highlighting areas while the center point of your lid will attract attention to the iris, making your peepers pop and giving you a fake-awake effect if needed!
STEP DOS: DEFINE WITH MEDIUM SHADES
A medium toned shade like Caramelito, Chisme Time, 6 AM, Spill el Tea or Ponte las Pilas in your crease will add dimension and increase definition.
Sweep a medium shade in your crease —the part of your eyelid that sinks in the most, and be sure to blend it out to diffuse any harsh lines.
For a smoky eyeshadow look, make sure you apply a medium shade to your outer v - the outer corner of your eyes and the very edge of your crease - before getting to work with a dark pigment for the perfect blend.
STEP TRES: BLEND WITH DEEP SHADES
The deepest shades like Nena Canela, Choco-Latte, Brew-tiful or Brew-jita should be placed on your outer v —the outer corner of your eyes and the very edge of your crease— and your lower lash line.
Blend the shadow up towards the tail of your brow for the illusion of a lifted eye.
Harsh eyeliner not your style? No problem. Use a pencil brush to swipe a deeper hue across your upper lash line for softer definition.
BONUS: WILDCARD LASH LINE
For a finished look, take the eyeshadow shade you have used in the majority of your look and blend it along your lash line. Use a pencil brush to precisely deliver pigment and use a smudger brush to buff it out.
You can also follow these steps using the color combinations suggested on the pictures, practice makes perfect and you’ll see that soon you’ll have mastered a unique, signature look!
