Finding the right eyeshadow palette can be tricky. You want to make sure it has enough colors to give you variety and allow you to create more than one look. But you also don’t want it to have an excess of colors either. No one wants to spend money on something that gets partially thrown away in the end. Also, getting an eyeshadow palette that brings out the color in your eyes to make them pop is essential. So if you are ready to learn how to get your own perfect eyeshadow palette, look no further. This beginner’s guide to creating a custom eyeshadow palette will walk you through everything you need to know to get the absolute best shades for you!
Creating a Custom Eyeshadow Palette
One of my favorite things about Seint makeup, is that all of their makeup is completely customizable, including their eyeshadows. This means I get to pick and choose what colors I include in my compact. And when my favorite eyeshadow shade runs out, I replace the single eyeshadow tin. The rest of my eyeshadows can continue to be used till they need to be replaced themselves. This has been a game changer… especially for my wallet!
However, when you think about creating a custom eyeshadow palette, you might be overwhelmed by knowing where to even start. This is especially true if you are new to eyeshadows. Or you are used to purchasing a premade palette where all the colors have already been determined for you.
With Seint Beauty, you have the freedom to create a custom eyeshadow palette made specifically for you. As you begin creating your custom palette, start with some color palette inspiration. Some of my favorite places to look for inspiration are on Pinterest, Instagram, or pre-made eyeshadow palettes at the store.
Step 1: When Will you Use the Custom Eyeshadow Palette
Deciding what you are creating the palette for, and when you will use the palette, is the very first step. This will help get things going and allow you to narrow your focus down to what you are truly after. Are you creating a palette for special occasions, a specific season, or everyday wear? Eyeshadows palettes can vary a lot, depending on what you want and need. Luckily Seint carries such a wide range of eyeshadows that you will have everything you need to create the perfect palette!
Step 2: Find the Neutrals for your Palette
Every eyeshadow palette should include some neutral shades. Neutrals give you versatility because they can be paired with so many other shades, or even just worn alone. Some common neutral Seint eyeshadow colors are: Sabrina, Rome, Stay Golden, Chai, and Pup.
Step 3: Add Complementary Colors
One of the most crucial parts of creating your own eyeshadow palette is making sure you include some colors that are complementary to your eye color. You can read more about how that is in this post: How to Select Eyeshadows That Will Make Your Eyes Stand Out.
Selecting a complementary color involves using the color wheel. A complementary eyeshadow color is a color that’s opposite to your eye color on the color wheel. For example, orange is the opposite of blue on the color wheel. So if you have blue eyes, you want to look for shadows with orange undertones, such as Leo, Havana, Tangerine, and Crush.
As you add complementary colors to your palette, consider mixing up your mattes and shimmers. This will give you some variety and versatility. It will also allow you to create multiple looks using different complementary shades. As a result, your eyes will pop regardless of how dressed up or dressed down your eyeshadow look is.
Step 4: Add Some Depth to your Custom Eyeshadow Palette
Whether you want a smokey eye, a softer eyeliner, or just some added depth to your overall eye look. Adding in some deeper tones can really polish off a look. These deeper tones can stick within the color scheme as your overall makeup look, or serve as a dramatic contrast with a completely different color. Some classic shades include: Trust, Coco, Revival, Cole, Filly, and Salem. And if you’re looking for slightly more statement shades, try As If, Mi Hija, #33, Ivy League, Denim, and Kin.
Step 5: Make it Versatile
Now is the time to have fun and add varying colors to make it more versatile. While looking for colors that go with what you’ve already added to your palette, take some time to look at the color wheel again and see the analogous colors. Those are the colors that are right next to each other on the color wheel. Analogous colors are great if you’re wanting to use multiple colors, but have them work well together to create a beautiful masterpiece.
Step 5: Enjoy Your New Custom Eyeshadow Palette
Once you’ve determined your perfect customized shades, it is time to ORDER! Then, get excited! You are about to have so much fun creating new looks and switching up your appearance with your brand-new custom eyeshadow palette!
