Mixing Cool Tones and Warm Tones

After sharing a glittery makeup look last week using the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in the shade Glamrock last week, I was inspired to use it again. This time though, I wanted to use it as a pop of glitter in an eye makeup look that would combine both cool tones and warm tones. I knew that my brand new Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette was up for this task. I don’t often blend cool tones and warm tones but after creating this look, I am questioning past practices because I am in love with how this look turned out! I’m also questioning why the heck I don’t do winged eyeliner more often, but enough of me gabbing about the look, let’s take a look at it, shall we?

To top off this mix of cool tones and warm tones, I used Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Requiem, a soft lilac shade, to add a final touch of cool tones to the face. This was my first time using this shade (graciously gifted to me by my CBB Secret Santa this year, thank you, Janelle!) and I love it! I love purpley lipsticks and this is a wonderful addition to my collection.

So overall, I am very pleased with how this look turned out! I meant to keep this post for later in the week but I was too excited and am putting it up now instead!

Do you often mix cool tones and warm tones when creating an eye makeup look? Let me know in the comments below! It’s certainly by no means a new concept, but I find I tend to go one way or another when creating eye makeup looks.

      Thank you so much!!

  2. I love it! I’m so afraid of mixing warm and cool tones together (and I think I automatically keep everything the same without thinking about it), but this makes me want to experiment! As for winged eyeliner, I don’t do it often because I suck and it’ll almost always make me late because I keep trying to fix things

      Yeah, your reasons for not doing winged liner often are similar to mine. If I decide to do it, I use the scotch-tape hack (I always put it on my hand a few times first to make it less sticky) and it seems to work like a charm! But, still more effort than I’m willing to put in most mornings, haha!

  3. Such a pretty look! Love the little touch of glitter – I don’t often mix cool and warm, but maybe I should try!
