1 palette - 3 eye looks, Jaclyn Hill X Morphe palette

I'm back today with another instalment of my '1 palette - 3 eye looks' series, this time sharing 3 eye looks created with the Jaclyn Hill X Morphe palette (check here Too Faced Sweet Peach, ABH Modern Renaissance). As I mentioned in my 'recent beauty favourites' post I've been obsessed with this palette, I think the quality of the eyeshadows is really good, better then the other Morphe eyeshadows I've tried, and the shades selection is beautiful. I know some of you don't like large palettes but I personally love having plenty of choices in one palette so for me it's an advantage. I've heard the palette is coming back with new, more sleek packaging and with the names of eyeshadows written in the palette which is something my palette is missing but never mind, I still love it (the palette is currently available on BeautyBay).
With 35 eyeshadows there are tons of possibilities to create many different eye looks but, as usual, I will share today only 3. Let me know if you would be interested in seeing more as I could totally gather another 3 to show you in the future. I focus only on the eye makeup but will also tell you what I wore on my lips to complement the eyes.
Without further ado let's get to the looks.

The greens...
As soon as I got this palette I was particularly drawn to those green shades in the left bottom corner so it was obvious I will be using them on my eyes. While the turquoise shades makes me think of Summer, the forest green shades are perfect for more Autumnal eye look.

I always start with applying eyeshadow primer to my eye lids and setting it with a bit of translucent powder to ensure I have nice blank canvas to work on, my eyeshadows blend better and stay on for longer without creasing.
To start defining my crease I used first shade 1 (Silk Crème), then shade 2 (Butter) on a fluffy blending brush (Sigma E40) blending them in and above my crease. Then using denser brush (Sigma E25) I applied shade 3 (Enchanted) in the outer corner blending it lightly into the outer crease. I was very pleasantly surprised with this shade, very pigmented, it didn't apply patchy like some other this kind of shades I've tried from other brands and stayed true to its colour after blending, some become just a grey mess. Using my ring finger, I find this techinique to be the best at applying shimmery eyeshadows, I applied shade 4 (Diva) to my lid blending it into the darker shade. I added just a touch of shade 5 (Pool Party) to the centre of my lid for extra dimension and shade 6 (Enlight) to my inner corner and tiniest bit on my brow bone.
On my lower lid I blended out shade 2 and then lined my lash line with shade 3 smoking it out lightly. I applied black kohl pencil to my lower and upper water line.
I like to wear false lashes when I'm planning to take photos of my makeup and I'm wearing Nouveau Lashes in style Natural 3 in all three looks.
I paired the eyes with nude glossy lips, I used Maybelline ColorSensational Lip Liner in shade 10 Nude Whisper and Bare Minerals Gloss in shade Debutante (it was part of this set).

The purples...

The purple shade was another that I had to create an eye look with, pronto! I love wearing purples in Autumn, especially paired with warm browns and golds.

After priming my eyes I started my eye look with blending shade 1 (Butter) in and above my crease and on my lower lash line using fluffy brushes (Sigma E40 and Morphe M506 for lower lash line). To define the crease and add more warmth to the look I blended shade 2 (Roxanne) into the crease and outer corner and also on the lower lid (using Sigma E25). I wanted the outer corner to be quite smokey so I darkened it out with shade 3 (Chip) which I also defined my lower lash line with (using Morphe R43). To the centre of my lid I applied shade 4 (Royalty) and to the inner lid shade 5 (Queen). To highlight my inner corner I used shade 6 (Beam).
I lined my lower and upper water line with deep brown eye pencil.

The warm tones...

And to balance things out a bit I thought I will share something more wearable for everyday :)

After priming my lids, I applied transitional shade 1 (Creamsicle, using Sigma E40) in and above my crease and on the lower lid. To deepen out my crease and outer corner I used shade 2 (Jacz) on Sigma E25 which not only applies the shade but blends it to perfection, I also applied both matte shades to my lower lid. For my lid I took shade 3 (Little Lady), beautiful peachy gold, and added shade 5 (Beam) to my inner corner.
I then lined my lower and upper lash line with black matte eyeshadow and created small wing for a very subtle smoked out effect.
To keep the eyes looking light and fresh I added nude eye pencil to my water line.
With the eyes being quite subtle I wanted bolder lips so I used Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Lyin' King.
