Burberry Dark Spice Simple Daytime FOTD


I absolutely love the Burberry Dark Spice eye palette (shown here) and had so much fun experimenting with different looks.  I started off with a simple day look that I paired with soft cheeks and a rosy lip.  Since Burberry eyeshadows are extremely easy to use, creating this look was easy because it's almost as if the shadows blend themselves.  I hope you enjoy this daytime FOTD that I created.

For this look, I placed the lightest shade in the quad and applied it all over my lid all the way up to the browbone.  I then softly placed the coppery shadow in the outer V of my lid for definition.  I wanted to keep this look simple by focusing on the eyeshadows and not my lashes.  I used the dark brown shadow in the quad as a liner for my upper lashline and 2/3 of my lower lashline.  I chose not to heavily line my lids, and so to open up my eyes, I dotted black liner between my lashes and lightly tightlined my upper waterline.  Since the lightest shade in this eye palette is a my-lids-but-better color, I needed to find something else to use as a highlighter.  I used the lightest color in my trusty Cargo Essential Eye Palette for my tear duct and under my brow bone.  I finished off my eye look by curling my lashes and applying one coat of mascara.  To keep this look simple, I kept my blush sheer and added a blotted layer of pale red lipstick to add a bit of oomph.

  1. Whoa I love how the Dark Spice looks on you! I suspect the colors will be too warm for me, but on you it's REALLY gorgeous!

    1. Thank you! I so love this palette, and I heard Burberry will be releasing two more quads. I'm scared for my wallet. ;)

  2. This is gorgeous--and that lip color goes *perfectly* with the rest of the look!

    1. I had to find a reason to use my Diorific lipstick, despite how pretty it is. This just happened to be the right time to break it out ;)

  3. That's a very nice eye look you created! Love the gradation :) Your eyelids are just naturally beautiful!
