ColourPop Boudoir Noir Palette Tutorial

Exploring ColourPop’s pressed eyeshadow palettes has been one of my latest obsessions. It took me forever to try this formula and I am more than impressed with the quality, especially when considering the price! Their Boudoir Noir palette is one of their more recent releases and while it’s full of nothing but warm-tones, it can provide an eye look that’s perfect for almost any occasion.

No matter how great of quality an eyeshadow formula is, primer should always be the first step! I’m using my favorite Milani eyeshadow primer. A little bit of this goes a long way and it greatly improves the wear time of any eyeshadow. Once the primer was dry, I took the matte tan shade in the palette called Melt on a buffing brush to start creating some shape in the crease.

Then I switched to a small shader brush and packed the dark brown shade called Vibin’ on the outer third of the eyelid. While Melt is a very lightly pigmented shade, Vibin’ is much more intense so make sure to work in light layers and add more color as needed. Once that eyeshadow was in place, I went in with a separate, empty, more loose-bristled blending brush to soften the edges.

To create more definition in the upper crease, I took the lighter brown called Silk Sheets on a small blending brush and buffed that right at the edge of where Vibin’ ends. This will add more of a gradient between shades and make the eyes appear bigger.

For the rest of the lid, I chose the bright champagne shimmer shadow called Goodnight. I applied this with my finger first and then used a small shader brush to blend it into the crease. This method will provide a more pigmented result and prevent any glitter from falling onto the cheeks.

Then I used the matte cream shade in the palette called Déjà Vu and placed that underneath my brow bone and on the very inner corner of my eye. This will help to brighten those areas and make the eyes appear more awake.

For eyeliner, I first applied the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in the shade Matte Mulberry and then took the darkest shade from the palette called Hot Toddy and used an angled liner brush to pack that directly on top of the pencil. This two-step method will create a softer appearance that will last longer throughout the day.

All there’s left to do is curl the lashes and add a few coats of mascara. I’m currently using the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara and have been absolutely loving it. It provides a ton of drama to the lashes so there’s no need for falsies!

Here’s a close-up of the final look:

And a quick, more condensed guide for easy reference:

While this is a very warm-toned eyeshadow look, it could pair with so many different lip colors. I chose to keep it a little more natural and soft with the Flower Beauty lipstick in the shade Spiced Petal. This is such a beautiful color and the formula is very comfortable, especially when applied over a light lip balm.

This palette is such great quality and this is definitely one of my favorite looks to create with it. It’s dramatic enough to add some life to the eyes, but still soft enough for everyday wear. The shadows are incredibly easy to work with and they last very well throughout the day.
