SUVA Beauty Protégé Palette Tutorial

I’ve noticed I go through phases with my eyeshadow. It used to be all about the browns, then the purples, and the taupes. At one time, I was even using blues and grays. Right now, it’s the warmer shades that have my attention, specifically the warm browns. The fact that that’s all companies are currently producing definitely has a lot to do with it. I wasn’t sure about the color selection in this SUVA Beauty Protege eyeshadow palette at first, but I kinda liked that it forced me into the purple color family again.

For this eyeshadow look, I started by priming my eyes with my favorite Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chrome in the shade Gilded Rose. This is the perfect primer for these eyeshadows because it’s soft pink color and tacky consistency will really help to enhance all the purples I’ll be layering over top.
Once the primer dried, I went into the shade Poetic. This is the lightest matte purple shade in the palette and will act as a transition shade to help the other colors melt together more easily. It’s not as pigmented as I would like and it does take a few layers before it’s really noticeable.
No matter what color eyeshadow look you’re going for, it’s always a good idea to mix in a brown somewhere. I’m taking the Conscious shade and placing that on the outer half of my eyelid, blending whatever excess product is on my brush slightly up into the crease. Once I have the color placed and built up to what I want, I took a separate, empty, loose bristled blending brush to blur the edge of that color even more.
Going into the darkest purple shade in the palette, Aesthetic, I placed that in a sideways “V” shape on the outer part of my eye. This will help to add more color and more dimension. The sideways “V” technique makes the eyes appear bigger. Who doesn’t want that??
It’s important to go back after each step and blend with an empty blending brush. If that doesn’t work, or if you accidentally went over the first transition color, you can always go back and add a little bit more right above the other colors in the crease. This will also give the illusion that there’s more eyelid space than what there might actually be.
Moving to the inner half of the eye, I used the Structure shade and pressed that on the rest of my eyelid. I applied it with my finger first and then blended it out into the crease with a small shader brush. This particular shade will leave glitter fallout all over the cheeks, so I recommend either protecting the face with a tissue or applying the eyeshadow before the rest of the face makeup.
Structure wasn’t exactly as bright as I was looking for, so I took a little bit of the Theory highlighter shade and put that on the inner fourth of my eyelid. Again, I used my finger first and then blended with a small shader brush. This shade doesn’t have nearly as much fallout and gave me a better, brighter gradient of colors that I was looking for.
The shade Tact is the matte cream shade in the palette and is what will act as my brow bone and inner corner highlight. I also tried using a little bit of the Era highlighter shade on the inner corner of my eye, but didn’t notice any difference in such a small area.
For eyeliner, I used the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in the shade MatteMulberry. I’ve been loving this pencil lately. It’s so smooth and the color is gorgeous. Depending on what colors you pair it with, it can look more brown or purple. To help keep it in place longer and create a softer look, I placed a combination of Aesthetic and Conscious directly over it with an angled eyeliner brush.
Then I finished things up by curling my lashes and adding a few coats of mascara. I got a new tube of my favorite Benefit Roller Lash mascara for Christmas and have been in absolute heaven with it. Three coats, applied in my typical lash routine, with this mascara is complete perfection!
Here’s a close up of the final look:
And a complete, more condensed guide for easy reference:
To finish off the rest of the face, I used as many other products in my December Boxycharm as possible. I used the Havana Nights shade in the Wander Beauty Wanderess Dusk to Dawn palette, topped with the Tuscan Sunrise shade as my blush. Also in that palette, I used City Lights for a little highlight on the cheekbones. I put the Bodyography lip pencil in the shade Heatherberry underneath my favorite Ulta Lip Butter in the shade Enticing, and topped it all off with Tarte’s Glitter Lip Paint in the shade Insta-famous.
After using nothing but warm-toned eyeshadows for the longest time, it was very strange seeing myself with purple eyeshadow again. I was almost confused during application as to what I was doing! Although this palette isn’t my absolute favorite, as you might remember from last week’s full review, I do love the way it all came together. I forgot how beautiful purple eyeshadow looks on brown eyes!

~Mani Monday~
It’s been so long since I’ve done a Mani Monday and I’ve missed it so much! I’ve kinda been all over the place with the colors that I’ve been choosing lately, but I have noticed a similar trend to last year. I keep gravitating towards the light, soft, feminine colors. I don’t know what it is, I just think they’re so pretty! This week I’m wearing Sally Hansen’s Pink A Card. Although I love this color, I don’t normally love the formula. It has never lasted very long on me but, as you’ll see in a polish review coming this Friday, I have a new top coat that has been keeping my polish on all week!
What’s on your nails this week?
