Last week I announced my new Super Power Campaign which was really inspired by the Super Power Mattes Eye Shadow Palette. Since it’s launch, it’s been already deemed as a favorite by many. It’s no surprise, matte eye shadow is easier to blend and apply for most and pairs well with so many of your other palettes. Today I wanted to share 10 looks that have inspired me and I hope that they do the same for you and show you what you can recreate with this ONE powerful palette!
