Default Eye shadow help - how to use these shades

I bought this palette (Pop Beauty Eye Cake in Olive Eyes) from Sephora after a salesperson used it on me.

I didn't like the way she did it, but I could tell the colors would be nice. I like all of the colors except the light yellow shade, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to wear them and what color eyeliner to use with them. I usually use dark brown eyeliner, but it looks strange with these colors. I'd love suggestions from the makeup queens (and the Empress)!

For the record, my eyes are medium brown with some green and gold flecks.

ma cherie, i would use dark brown liner with that - think MAC Teddy (which is a shimmery, warm brown, or Bonne Bell Midnight Bark!



from the top, i would use the first and fourth shadows for lid colour with the darkest in the crease and the yellow for highlighter. i have a MAC yellow that doesn't go on yellow, more a pale, lemon=y gold and i'm wondering if that might be in that same family...?

Thanks rou! I was hoping you'd respond. I will see if I can find that Bonne Bell liner at Target. Warm and sparkly sounds like it might work with those colors. The dark brown I tried is a matte cream liner, and it looked funny next to the shimmery colors.

I would use the darkest shade as a liner, mixed with a little water or other liquid (Visine works for this too) and applied with a lining brush. I love liners that are just a foiled shade of the same shadow used on the lids. I would use a tiny bit of that yellow on the inner corners for a little highlight. Just a little though.

Ooh, I hadn't thought of doing the liner like that. I tried lining with a damp q-tip, but it was way too thick, as you might imagine. Sometimes I wish I could take make-up lessons... I think my application techniques are all wrong!

I smell a Target run coming on...

I can't know for sure because I'm just seeing a photo on a computer, but it looks like those shadows are cool-toned. If that's so, then you should use a cool-toned liner with them (or a warm-toned liner if it's not).

I think it's warm toned. I never can figure out warm/cool. The browns are kind of bronzey.
