Tutorial: Stila's Road to Radiance Palette

Road To Radiance
I am absolutely in love with the Stila Travel palettes! What an amazing deal for only $13 CAD you get four shadows and an (amazing) convertible colour! This is the first in the series and is called Road to Radiance Across the USA. I will be honest this wasn't my favourite palette when I first got it, but the more I used it, the more I loved how it looked!

Inside View
The colours in this palette are very girly and all in the pink/purple family. Starting at the top left is Southern Belle, Snow Bunny, City Chick (bottom left) and Valley Girl. The convertible colour is in a limited edition shade called Hibiscus.

Road to Radiance Eye Look
Here is the look I created with this palette.  I started by priming my eyelids with NYX eye primer in Nude. Then continued by sweeping the Valley Girl shade (bottom right - muted pink) all over my eyelid, not past the crease. I packed on this colour by gently tapping the brush against my lid instead of sweeping to get a little more pigmentation. Next, I took the Southern Belle shade (Top left - Vivid Pink) and worked it into my crease, again, tapping to add extra pigment. After working the crease shade in I took the darkest colour, City Chick (bottom left - metal grey/purple) and lined my upper and lower lash line. I also dampened my eyeliner brush to increase the intensity of the colour. Lastly, I took the brightest shade, Snow Bunny (top right - white shimmer) and highlighted my brow bone and the tear duct. This is only one way you can use these colours to make a look! 

Another View
I love the vivid pop of pink in the crease! It makes this look so fun! I also used Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara on my top and bottom lashes to accentuate them!

I hope you all enjoyed this look! I have all the other travel palettes as well so there will be more to come! :)

So pretty!! I've been on the fence about getting these palettes, and especially the Road to Radiance one because I'd heard the colors are a little light, but the way you did them here is absolutely gorgeous! I'm sold! :-)
