I have been trying to capture a good eye look using my Rue de Rivoli palette for some time. I've reached the conclusion that I am never going to get anything that I feel is satisfactory, so I may as well show you what I have so you can see for yourself the problem I've been having.
This is the look I did today. I used the peachy/pink colour all over the mobile lid, the light brown in the crease and outer corner, the grey to line and the white to highlight. As I am sure you will agree, it's lacking something. The liner doesn't really show up and the crease colour isn't dark enough. I think that it looks more washed out in the pictures than it did in reality but I was still a bit meh about it.
In my previous effort, I attempted to use the fuchsia. I applied it over the champagne, as had been recommended in the comments of Replica's post here. It does give more depth but the overall look is just too pink and seemed a little unbalanced.
As I mentioned in my original post, I think the colours in this palette are lovely but I definitely need to admit defeat and stop trying to create a look with it on it's own. I think it needs more contrast; a darker colour in the crease or heavier eyeliner. Something to really make these gorgeous colours shine.
Let me know what you think. What would you do to make this work?
