Catrice: The Berlin Collection Palette Eye Look II



Here's another eye look using Catrice's The Berlin Collection Palette from the Big City Life limited edition release. I used these three shades: am Alex, Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie.

The other products used in this look are:

Etos Eyeshadow Underbase (eyeshadow primer)
Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash Mascara - Waterproof Extra Black


The eyeshadows used are indicated with dots in the photo. For eyelining, I used the black mini eyeliner pencil that came in this palette.

Here's a quick reminder of what the eyeshadows are:


am Alex - dark brown, matte
Berlin Wall - dusty rose/copper, shimmer
Checkpoint Charlie - yellow beige, shimmer

Swatches of these eyeshadows can be found in my review of The Berlin Collection.

The look:


• Dark brown (am Alex) on lid fold and in outer corner
• Dusty rose/copper (Berlin Wall) above dark brown
• Beige (Checkpoint Charlie) above dusty rose/copper and in inner corner
• Line and tightline with the black mini eyeliner pencil
• One coat of mascara

I've left the bottom lid bare except for some mascara.

Very nice blending. I seldom use brown. Mostly blue or black for me.

Browns. This is like revisiting my past. Browns were all I knew in the old days. :D

@rock-or-not
Thank you, rock-or-not. :)

@sugar sugar
Yeah, it's a safe, neutral eye look. :)

When I first saw pallets I was really excited because they are so nice looking and then I saw your make-up I really fell in love with this pallet.
I prefer brown shades for more natural look and your version is beautiful ;)

Jammer genoeg heb ik deze niet kunnen bemachtigen. Er zitten hele mooie kleuren in. :(

Er waren nog enkele doosjes van New York en Sydney, maar die waren minder bijzonder. Groet

Gorgeous eye look. I love the brown colors and it's not over the top, so great for a day at the office. I like the print on the box too. Take care, Nicole x

Thank you for your kind words, MissDoll. I absolutely love this palette. It has such a great combination of colours! It's a pity it sold out so quickly. :)

@Nikki
Oh, wat jammer! Deze palette heeft inderdaad veel mooie kleuren. Ik heb deze nergens meer gezien, na de eerste keer. Ik heb wel een paar keer bij verschillende Kruidvat filialen de London palette gezien - dus die was niet zo populair! Groetjes! :)

@KTee
Hey, thank you, KTee! It's a fantastic palette, especially for such a good price. :)

@Nicole
Thanks, Nicole! All the colours in this palette are easy to use and combine. Gotta love that! :)
