I will try to do at least 3 different looks with the Lorac Pro Palette. The first one is a dark smokey matte eyelook. Mattes can be tricky to work with, so here, I build up each layer, and try to blend softly so I don't end up with patchy streaks. The shadows are super smooth, and didn't have any fallout at all.
On the rest of the face, I keep the cheeks and lips to a very pale pink, all the more to emphasize the matte brown smokey eyes. I love love love mad love this palette, and if you could, try to get it!

For your information, I only used ONE brush to create this look, so I started with the lightest shade first. I used my new Hakuhodo brush, in J142. It is a dense soft fluffy tapered brush. It is amazing.
I first applied the Lorac eyeshadow primer which comes with the palette. Then I lightly brushed Nude on my brow bones. This is followed by the Taupe shade, which I used on the crease and also to sort of outline how high I want the eyeshadow to go.
Then I intensified the color on the lids by using Sable.. a warm brown.. and closer to the lash line, I used Espresso. I patted on Espresso... and with the same brush, the tapered tip, I used Black as a liner.. (Do note in the following pic, the colors are very washed out... the black is really a matte JET BLACK, and not brown as shown in the pic.. Espresso is a blacken coffee brown).
This is the completed look.
