P267300_hero  I reviewed this palette last year, as part of a Smashbox set, and went nuts last night when I found it for $15 on Sephora.com. Normally, this palette is only available in a set, but thankfully they are now selling it for a limited time separately! 

Seriously, you MUST own this! The Classified palette is one of the best day-night eyeshadow palettes I have seen in awhile, and you can't beat the price.

The palette includes:

  • vanilla
  • light bronze
  • brown
  • ivory
  • light mauve
  • deep eggplant

These are colors that can be blended together, and layered to create a soft neutral eye, or a deep, sultry plum smokey eye.  As always, Smashbox pigments are rich, smooth, and provide crease free coverage.  

Makeup Artist Tip:

For a daytime look:

  • Brush Vanilla all over the eyelid to create a smooth neutral base
  • Line the upper eyelid with a deep brown eyeliner, then trace over the eyeliner with the Brown shadow using an angled eyeliner brush.  To create a softer look, wiggle the eyeliner brush into the eyeliner, smudging both colors together.  This softens the line of the pencil.
  • Blend the Light Bronze shadow in the crease and lightly on the lower lid, creating a soft, graduated blend from the eyeliner to the crease.
  • For a more intense daytime look, line the lower eyelash line with the Light Bronze shadow (using your angled eyeliner brush).

For a nighttime look:

  • For a quick jump to a smokier nighttime look, simply add the Deep Eggplant to the outer corners of the eye, creating a soft V shape
  • Smudge the Deep Eggplant over the dark brown liner, blending the two colors together and creating a deeper, darker plum.
  • Smudge the Light Mauve underneath the lower eyelash line with an angled eyeliner brush. Don't be afraid to blend it with the Light Bronze.
  • If you have any harsh edges, or feel the shadows are too dark, simply blend the Ivory over with a soft blender brush (medium sized preferred). 
  • You can also use the Ivory to highlight the inner corner of the eyes and the tops of cheekbones.
