Hey beauties, welcome to today’s makeup tutorial! As promised I’m going to be sharing a tutorial themed around each Zodiac Element sign in the ColourPop Zodiac Palette created by Kathleen Lights. Today we are talking about the Earth Signs — Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. For my Zodiac Palette Earth Sign tutorial I wanted to create a very easy, wearable look that really reflected the steadiness of the Earth personalities. You guys know that Astrology isn’t my thing but I still found it interesting reading up on all these signs. This is my current everyday go-to eyeshadow look and I’ve worn it to work five or six times already since buying the ColourPop Zodiac Palette.
The Earth Element
The Taurus is a very dependable crease shade, it’s a warm brown matte that is good for just about any look. I find myself reaching for it a lot whether I’m creating an Earth look or pulling shades from all over the palette.
Personality Traits: Reliable, Practical, Ambitious & Sensual
The Virgo is a cool toned brown that was intended to be used as an outer corner shade. I’ve been using it in that way a lot, it’s such a great shade!
Personality Traits: Intelligent, Attentive to Small Details, Modest & Capable
The Capricorn is a matte black with flecks of gold glitter. These shades are a little odd to me because the glitter really doesn’t translate on the eyes. When working with a black I always tap my brush out which disperses the glitter in the air so I don’t really see the point. If I apply it as an eyeliner though some of those flecks remain which is pretty cool! Personality Traits: Ambitious, Practical, Determined, Conservative
Get The Look – Earth Element Tutorial
Step #1: Sweep the shade The Taurus through the crease using windshield wiper motions.
Step #2: Pick up more of the taurus on a dense packing brush (or your choice of brush) and pat more of The Taurus all over your eyelids. The Taurus is a really great shade not just for the crease but for all over the lid as well. This look is very wearable and soft for everyday and I attribute that to this shade.
Step #3: Place The Virgo on the outer corners of your eyes. I blended this halfway through the crease using a Morphe M506 Brush.
Step #4: Using an angled liner brush pick up the shade The Capricorn and spray your brush with a setting spray. Line your eyes with this shade. If you don’t tap out your brush and use a setting spray a few of those gold flecks should translate onto the eyes.
Step #5: Lightly pat the shade The Capricorn onto the outer corners of your eyes with a fluffy blending brush. Blend inwards, meshing the colour with The Virgo.
