Five Looks Using One Palette | Morphe 35P




I recently purchased the Morphe 35P Plum Palette in the Beauty Bay sale on Morphe products (RIP) and have really been enjoying playing around with it. I used to think that I didn't suit purple eyeshadow, but the more I've practised using them the better I think they look. I did a post aaaaaaages ago sharing five looks with the Morphe 35OS palette, and I thought I'd do the same thing with this one! To save you having to read a ridiculously rambling introduction (spot o' alliteration for you), scroll on down to have a look at the five looks I shared here!
 
LOOK ONE
  1. To start this look I put a piece of Scotch Tape on my face (which looks ridiculous btw) from the tip of my eyebrow to the outer corner of my eye. I then applied a base of the Urban Decay Primer Potion, and set that in place using the white shade in the top left corner of the palette.

2. In my crease, I put down the pinky shade beside the white one I just used and blended it using a fluffy brush. To deepen that slightly, I used the darker pink shade on the top row, four across. I blended these shades thoroughly.

3. On the same fluffy brush, I used the maroon shade on the bottom row, three from the right. I blended this into my crease.

4. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I took the shimmery maroon shade that's directly above the one I just used, and applied it to the inner half of my eyelid.

5. On the outer half of my lid, I applied the dark brown shade on the bottom row, three from the left. I blended it in a circular motion.

6. Next, I took the black shade in the centre of the bottom row on an angled brush and did a winged eyeliner look. I then removed the tape and applied the same shade to my bottom lash line.

7. I took the pale brown directly underneath the white shade in the top left corner of the palette and applied it as an inner corner highlight.

8. Finally, I applied a pair of lashes. The ones I used were the style 'Vamp' by Flique, and you can probably see that I'm dreadful at applying them but hey ho they suit the look. I used a little bit of mascara on my bottom lashes and then I was done! (If you were wondering my lipstick is the shade 'Rapture' from Urban Decay.)


 LOOK TWO
 1. To start with, I laid down a base of the Urban Decay Primer Potion and set it in place using the white shade in the top left corner of the palette.

2. I used a fluffy brush and blended the pink shade directly to the right of the white into my crease. To make that a bit deeper, I blended the shades that are third and fourth from the left on the second row together and added them to my crease.

3. Using a clean brush, I blended the dark purple shade on the right hand end of the fourth row down into my inner corner and outer corner of each eye.

4. Using my little finger, I applied a little bit of the purple shade in the top right corner of the palette to the centre of my lid.

5. I applied a bit of black liquid liner above my upper lash line (mine is from NYX) and added a bit of white pencil to my lower waterline.

6. Under my eyes, I took the fourth shade on the second row and applied it with an angled brush and smudged it with my finger.

7. To make it darker, I used the same dark purple from step three and added that over the top.

8. Finally, I applied a generous coat of mascara. My favourite is the Fibre Extension mascara from The Body Shop in London Jet. (If you were wondering what my lipstick is, it's a combination of Crete Carnation and Windsor Rose from The Body Shop.)


LOOK THREE


 


1. As before, I started by applying the Urban Decay Primer Potion and set it in place using the white shade in the top left corner of the palette.

2. As a transition shade, I put down the first shade on the third row (it's a light brown shade) and blended it towards my brow.

3. To deepen up my crease, I took the first shade on the bottom row and blended that in, and then took the shade directly to the right of that one on a fluffy brush and did the same. The final shade I put in my crease was the dark brown shade right in the centre of the fourth row down. Make sure you use a light hand with this as it is very dark and you don't want to go too hard too soon! You can always add more but it's not so easy to take away!

4. Next, I took some of my Primer Potion on a flat brush and created a cut crease. Over the top of that primer, I took the shimmery purple on the second row down. It's the furthest shade to the right. I gently patted this shade onto the primer to add colour to the inner two thirds of my eyelid. Over the top of that, I patted the final shade on the third row.

5. On a fluffy brush, I blended the deep purple shade on the end of the fourth row down into my outer corner, trying not to mess up the sharp line I'd created with my crease.

6. You could stop there and apply mascara, but I chose to take a gold eyeliner from NYX and carefully draw a line over where I'd cut the crease just to add something special. After that, I applied a black liner to my upper lash line and decided not to add a wing, although you absolutely can if you'd like to! Then, to make my eyes appear larger, I applied a white eyeliner pencil to my lower waterline.

7. On the lower lashline, I used the final shades on the third and fourth rows on an angled brush and applied a line underneath to continue the purple. I smoked them together using a finger for a blended look.

8. For an inner corner highlight, I applied the purple shade in the top right corner of the palette on a teeny tiny brush I have from Real Techniques. (It's cute. I love it.)

9. I applied some natural looking lashes (I've lost the box so I'm sorry, I can't tell you what these are), and finally applied some mascara. My absolute favourite is The Body Shop's Lash Hero Fibre Extension Mascara. (If you were wondering what my lipstick is, it's Urban Decay 'Rapture.)


LOOK FOUR
 
1. As always, I started this look by applying a base of Urban Decay Primer Potion. I set it in place using the white shade in the top left corner of the palette.

2. As a transition shade, I applied the third shadow from the left of the top row. I blended it using a fluffy brush up towards my brow.

3. To deepen my crease, I used two shades: the second and third shadows on the third row. I used a fluffy brush again to blend them out, and I was careful not to apply too much at a time as they're darker than you'd expect!

4. On a flat brush, I mixed the first two shades on the second row together and applied them to the inner half of my lid.

5. On the outer half of my lid, I used the first shade on the fourth row and blended it with the previous shades I applied.

6. I used a black pencil eyeliner in my waterline to add definition and drama too my eyes.

7. Under my eyes, I took the fifth shade on the second row and applied it to my lower lashline using an angled brush. I then used one of my fingers to smudge it out a bit.

8. I applied a generous amount of mascara (my favourite is The Body Shop's Lash Hero Fibre Extension Mascara) to finish off my eye look, and applied the lip liquid in the shade 'Sydney Amaryllis' from The Body Shop.


LOOK FIVE
1. To start off the final look, surprise, surprise, I used the Urban Decay Primer Potion and set it using the white shade in the top left corner of the palette.

2. As a transition shade, I applied the first shade on the third row down and blended it towards my brow using a fluffy brush.

3. In my crease, I applied the first shade on the bottom row and softly applied it with a fluffy brush, blending as I went.

4. To deepen that up, I went for the second shade on the bottom row and applied it to my crease and blended it.

5. In my outer and inner corners, I applied the second shade on the third row. As always, I blended it as much as I could while maintaining the pigmentation.

6. I used my finger to apply the first shade on the second row to the centre of my lid. I find that using a finger for this gives me more pigmentation than a brush.
 
7. On my waterline, I applied a black pencil liner to add definition to my eyes.

8. On an angled brush, I took the second shade on the second row again and applied it under my lower lashline. I used a finger to smudge it out for a smokier look.

9. I applied a bit of mascara. I use The Body Shop's Lash Hero Fibre Extension Mascara and for this, I made use of the fibres that come with it for a more full look. If you were wondering what lipstick I'm wearing, it's my all time favourite 'Rock Steady' by Urban Decay!

 So that is all five of the looks that I put together using the Morphe 35P 'Plum' palette. While I do find that some of the shades don't blend well together - they sort of muddy up a bit and start looking like the exact same shade, which you may have thought about Look Four - I think they are pigmented, and the purple shades in particular are stunning!

I would really like some more purple shades in this palette, considering it's called the 'Plum' palette. It does seem like there are more brown shades than purple which is a shame. But overall, I think it's a great palette for playing with some more cool-toned looks and some dramatic smokey eyes!

That's it for this very lengthy post, thank you so much for reading all this way! Which one of the looks is your favourite?
