The Riviera Palette is so gorgeous and versatile. I have 5 great picture tutorials to show you just how versatile it is and to help you get creative as well. This first look in this Riviera Eyeshadow Palette series is using all matte shades and if you know me you know I like a matte look. Now let us get started on this Riviera matte makeup look.
As always you want to prep your eyes before starting your eye makeup. You can either use concealer or an eyeshadow primer. For this look, I used the Nars Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. A little bit of concealer is in my crease from cleaning my brow bone. You can also add tape if that is easier for you to get a clean line for your outer corner. Once that is done we can finally start this Riviera Matte Makeup Look picture tutorial.
Riviera Matte Picture Tutorial
To start this Riviera Matte picture tutorial, add the shade Estate into your crease. This will be your transition shade. For this, I used the Lancome 17 brush.
To deepen the crease add the shade Coastline. Just use the same crease brush as you did in step 1.
Time to cut that crease. Take your concealer and cover your entire eyelid going up into your crease. Try to get a clean line.
Starting on the outer corner pack on the shade Palm. Don’t go too far onto your eyelid because we will be adding 3 more shades.
Next, add the shade Cannes right next to the shade Palm. You want to take this shade to about the center of your eyelid.
Now add the gorgeous shade Bahamas right next to the previous shade Cannes. This shade you can take pretty much all the way to your inner corner. Just leave a very small section for the last shade.
Clean up your outer corner if you did not use tape. After that take a flat definer brush and add a line of the shade Palms to your crease. Like you are just outlining taking it all the way to the shade Bahamas. I hope the picture helps to make sense of what I am saying.
For the lower lash line, you want to add the shades Estate and Coastline. Just like you did for your crease.
The lower lash line will be a little different. Only use the shade Palm and run it from your outer corner and almost all the way to your inner corner.
Now to add this pigmented white to the inner corner of my eyelid and lower lash line. I also connected them together making this white my highlight for the inner corner.
Add a little black eyeliner on your lash line to help blend your false lashes. I took it down all the way to my inner corner area. Also, add some brown eyeliner to your water line.
The final step is to add your false lashes and mascara. For mascara, I used the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. For lashes, I used the Ardell 811.
