Pop Beauty Lightshow Palette Tutorial

Pop Beauty is a brand I haven’t really heard much about. I’ve never tried any of their products before, but the textures and designs in their Lightshow Dusk Deluxe eyeshadow palette definitely got my attention. Although it has a very colorful shade selection, I was drawn to its beautiful neutrals because that’s how I prefer to wear my makeup. I created a super easy look using only three shades and I have to say, the quality is outstanding!
I started by priming my eyes with the Milani eyeshadow primer. Once that was dry, I took the burnt orange shade from the palette and very lightly blended that into my crease with a fluffy blending brush. There’s no lighter option in the palette, so this is what I’m using as a definer shade to start forming the shape of my crease on the lid. This will help guide the placement of the next color.
Now I’m taking the purple shade in the palette and using a dense brush to pack that onto the outer third of my lid. This shadow does have a tiny amount of gold shimmer to it and it’s not as pigmented as the first shade, so it might take a few layers to build up the color. Once I got the depth of color I was looking for, I went in with a separate, empty, loose-bristled blending brush to blur the edges.
To add more dimension, I went back in with the burnt orange shade and used a small blending brush to buff that right at the edge of where the purple shade stops in the crease. I love combining warm and cool toned colors on the eye to get the best of both worlds. Especially with these two shadows, the gold shimmer in the purple compliments the deep orange perfectly.
For the rest of the inner ⅔ of the lid, I chose to use the shimmery champagne shade in the top row of the palette. This has the consistency of a foiled shadow and is loaded with pigment! With colors like these, I pack them on with my finger first and then use a small shader brush to blend the shadow slightly into the crease.
There’s not really an eyeliner option in this palette, especially for the color combination that I created. So, instead, I had to bring in two separate products. I first applied an eggplant colored pencil liner along my lash line and then topped it with a matching eyeshadow. My favorite deep purple shadow for this purpose is the one in Wet n Wild’s Comfort Zone palette.
Then all there was left to do is curl the lashes and add a few coats of mascara. Right now, I’m working through the Tarte Big Ego mascara. It’s not my favorite, as I discussed in my full review, but it’s decent enough to make a difference and pull the look together.
Here’s a close-up of the final look:
And a quick, more condensed guide for easy reference:
Although this look does include purple and orange eyeshadow, it’s subtle enough to be paired with so many different lip colors. I chose Pixi’s LipLift Max in the shade Peony Bloom. It’s the most comfortable plumping lip gloss I’ve ever worn and the bright pink is perfect for Summer!
Honestly, y’all, I’m really loving how this look turned out! Using a new eyeshadow formula, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect and when the purple wasn’t as intense as I expected it to be I got a little worried. But in the end, it all came together beautifully and might just be my new favorite color combination!
