Here's a simple look I wore yesterday. I wanted to test out my new Clinique Chubby Stick in Bountiful Beige as an eye shadow base and tried it here underneath Dolce & Gabbana's Fortune duo, which contains a dark plum satin and a white-gold shimmer. I used Bobbi Brown's Black Plum as a liner on the top lash line and MAC's Heirloom pencil on the lower lash line.
I love the look of warm and cool tones together and like to play around with different combinations. Here the contrast of the warm pale gold shadow with the cool silvery-lavender liner helps to add interest to a look that might otherwise be a bit dull and one-dimensional.
On cheeks I used a current favorite, Burberry's Peony--a perfect spring-time pink, and on lips I used Dolce & Gabbana's Baby Darling, a soft peachy pink with subtle shimmer.

In the arm swatches I applied the Fortune Duo over Bountiful Beige Chubby Stick, which made the plum shade appear shimmery; however, when used on its own it does not have any shimmer.
The Chubby Stick did a nice job of deepening the plum and brightening up the pale gold from the Fortune duo. Bountiful Beige is a versatile, neutral champagne color that is well suited for use as a base, but is also a great all-over lid color. Lately I've been swiping it on in the mornings before work, when I don't have time to do a more elaborate eye look.
