Touch in Sol Fill Up Orange Palette Tutorial

Warm toned eyeshadows have been super popular lately and this new Touch in Sol Fill Up Orange palette definitely falls into that category. I used to prefer cool-toned shadows, but I’ve really been appreciating how flattering warm-toned shades can be also. I especially love them when paired with an eggplant eyeliner, it’s one of the most gorgeous combinations ever!
To start this look, I primed my eyes with the Milani eyeshadow primer. After that had time to dry, I took the pink shade from the palette called Tart and used that to define the crease with a blending brush. This is a very pigmented shade and since it’s not a neutral, I definitely recommend tapping the excess product off the brush before applying it to the eye. These shadows are very easy to blend, but it’s easier to avoid overapplication rather than trying to fix it.
Then I took the dark purple shade in the palette called Espresso and packed that onto the outer third of my lid. This color looks very intense in the pan, but it actually applies more on the light side. It took a few applications to build up the pigment and once that was dark enough, I went in with a separate, empty, loose-bristled blending brush to blur the edges.
The outer corner lid shade usually overlaps the first crease shade that was applied, so I took a little bit more of Tart on a slightly more precise blending brush and buffed that into the crease where Espresso ends. By bringing the eyeshadow higher into the crease and closer to the brow bone, it will make the eyes appear bigger.
Then I’m taking the shimmery pink shade called Study Break and packing that onto the very center of my lid. Using a finger to pack on shimmer shades will provide a faster, more pigmented application. It also prevents accidentally dusting any loose glitter all over the cheeks.
To add a little more dimension, I’m taking the shimmery champagne shade called Brown Sugar and packing that into the inner corner of my eye. Again, I used my finger to apply this shadow and then used a small shader brush to blend it into the crease. I love the combination of the pink in the crease and the gold on the inner corner mixed with the golden pink shimmer of Study Break in the center of the lid.
Now I’m taking the matte cream shade in the palette called Milk Foam and placing that right underneath my brow bone and on the very inner corner of the eye. This will help to lift the entire eye and brow area, as well as reflect light off the inner corner to brighten the whites of the eyes.
In order to prevent the look from becoming too top heavy, I’m going back into the Espresso shade and gently buffing that underneath my lower lashes with a pencil brush. I just want to add a little bit of color to this area to help complete the look. I don’t make this particular step too dramatic because it can tend to make my specific eye shape look very droopy.
Moving onto eyeliner, I’m taking a retractable pencil liner in a beautiful eggplant shade and placing that halfway along both my upper and lower lash lines. Once that is applied, I took the dark Espresso shade from the palette and packed that directly on top of the pencil to create a softer appearance.
To finish up, I curled my lashes and added a few coats of the Lilly Lashes Triple X mascara topped with the Lashaholic Lashes in the style called They’re Real, I Swear. Both of these products came in my June Boxycharm, along with this eyeshadow palette. I do still have some testing to do with this mascara and although fake lashes aren’t my favorite thing ever, they look stunning in photos!
Here’s a close-up of the final look:
And a quick, more condensed guide for easy reference:
To finish up the rest of the face, I used my current favorite Makeup Geek blush in the shade Covet and the Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip in the shade Evening Rose. I love how the deep shade of the blush and lip color pair with the pinks and purple in the eyeshadow. This matte lip product is pretty comfortable on its own, but I added a lightweight lip balm underneath to seal in the moisture and prevent the skin from drying out.
As bright as this palette’s packaging is, the inside is actually pretty neutral with the exception of the orange pressed glitter. The formula was very easy to work with and I love the color combination I was able to create with it. For everyday wear, I’d definitely just use mascara only. But for special occasions, the falsies totally take the look to a whole different level!
