Thank the makeup Gods! Lorac has some great face charts and how to’s for the Lorac Box Office Sensation Traincase. I’m so happy to see this as the one thing I didn’t like about the palette was the fact they didn’t include some “how to” looks! If you have the palette, these should be a very welcome tool for creating some great looks using it.
If you missed my review please see it by clicking here and proceeding to take the jump to see some the looks created by Carol Shaw, makeup artist to the stars and creator of the Lorac line.
Some of the looks, well all of the looks, are truly stunning so I’m pretty excited to have instructions for recreating them plus ideas how to use my Lorac Box Office Sensation!
Sparkle & Shine
Using the top left eyeshadow shelf, start by applying the lightest shade to highlight from lash line to brow bone. Use the bronze shadow all over your eyelid and softly blend in the crease. Then, apply the dark brown shade in the crease and outer corner, and then softly smudge along both the top and bottom lash line. For more drama, line and define bottom lashes with the black shadow.
Give your cheeks a warm glow using the bronze blush.
Use the light pink lip shade for punch of color.
Retro Meets Modern
Using the top right eyeshadow shelf, start by applying the lightest shade to highlight from lash line to brow bone. Use the yellow-gold shadow all over your eyelid. Then, apply one of the dark green shades in the crease and outer corner, smudging along top and bottom lash line. Lastly, blend the mango-colored shadow on the brow bone.
Apply the peach blush to the apples of your cheeks for a healthy pop of color.
Use the peach lip color for soft, beautiful lips.
Using the bottom left eyeshadow shelf, start by using the lightest shade to highlight from lash line to brow bone. Smudge the black shadow along the upper lash line starting at the inside of the eye and gradually thickening towards the outer corner while winging up and out for a cat eye effect.
Get a soft flush of color using the pink blush.
Dab on the red lip color using your fingertip for a natural-looking just-kissed look.
Using the bottom right eyeshadow shelf, start by using the lightest shade to highlight from lash line to brow bone. Apply the light lavender all over your eyelid and softly blend in the crease. Apply the dark purple shade in the crease and outer corner, smudging along the top and bottom lash line. For added drama, smudge the black eye shadow along the top and bottom lash line.
Apply the dusty rose-colored blush on the apples of your cheeks for subtle elegance.
Use one of the neutral lip shades for subtly beautiful color.
You probably recognize the Sparkle & Shine look from Lorac’s Holiday 2010 promo. I was excited that the look was created using the Box Office Sensation because it’s really a great look and quite reminds me of Dior’s Holiday Look! I’m eager to try to recreate it.
