REMIX: DOLCE & GABBANA EYESHADOW QUAD
three editors, one sexy eyeshadow palette, and a lot of leopard print.
The Product: Dolce & Gabbana Eyeshadow Quad in Desert
The Editor: Ray Siegel, senior web editor
The Inspiration: Theyskens Theory Spring '13 (minus the wig)
The Products: Dr. Jart Premium BB Cream, Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Pencil, CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascar, Kiehl's Lip Balm
The Process: "I'll go out on a limb say that this is the best eyeshadow I've ever used. I was shocked at how pigmented the colors were. The color you see in the palette is the actual shade that shows up once you apply--which is rarely the case. Plus, it stays in place, which makes it easy to use if you're not an eye makeup application expert. I used the lightest color as the base and used a bit under my brows to give them a lift. Then I used three coats of the chestnut color below it all the way up to my brow bone. I wanted the look to be warm and matte--without even the slightest hint of shimmer. I used my eyeliner underneath my top lash line only and CoverGirl mascara on my top lashes. I left my skin and lips bare, so the only color on my face was from the shadow."
The Editor: Rebecca Willa Davis, executive web editor
The Inspiration: '70s hippie-disco queen
The Products: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Primer, Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Liner in Cosmic Black, MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Dark Deed, Benefit They're Real! Mascara in Black
The Process: "I find that a lot of compacts in the nude-brown range tend to go on really sheer, so was surprised--in the best way possible--when the lightest shade from this Dolce & Gabbana quad went on really bright. Like, you-can-tell-I-have-eyeshadow-on bright. So I made that shade the base, brushing it across my entire lid to brighten my eyes, before adding the shimmer-y khaki shadow in a sideways arrow along my crease. To finish off the eyes, I applied a black liner and then smudged it a bit to get it smokey (I like Neutrogena's pencil because it comes with a smudger--so easy). To add a bit more drama I applied two coats of MAC's purple Dark Deed lipstick, and then brightened up my cheeks with a smear of their ultra-illuminating primer."

Inspiration: Young Lauren Hutton
The Products: Dolce & Gabbana Eyeshadow Quad in Desert, Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35, Nars Eyelash Curler, Dior Addict 'Lip Glow' Color Reviver Galm
The Process: "Wanting to keep it pretty clean and natural, I used a touch of the flaxen gold color as a shadow. Next, I applied (with my pinky finger) the lightest shade to the inner corners of my eye, which gives it that icy bright color I love. Lastly, I used an eyeliner brush and used the camel-brown hue to line my bottom lashes. Once finished, I didn't even feel the need to use any mascara!"
