Marc Jacobs Scandalust Makeup Tutorial

January 18, 2018

New year, but my obsession with warm shimmering hues of browns, coppers and golds on the eyes is still as strong as ever!

So I thought I’d do a simple yet versatile look with Marc Jacobs best selling eyeshadow palette ‘Scandalust‘ – which is not only flattering on all skin tones, suitable for all seasons but also pairs up beautifully with so many different lipstick shades…

Marc Jacobs Scandalust Eyeshadow Palette

Most of you know by now that when it comes to my personal makeup, I prefer fuss-free, simple yet effective looks. I also keep my products to a minimum cos lets be honest, we don’t always have the luxury of time.

Although I stuck to all Marc Jacobs products for this look, you can utilise any brand/product you have in similar shades.

All you need is warm toned eyeshadows in matte/shimmer finish, a shimmery dark brown eyeliner, a matte black eyeliner and your favorite black mascara. False lashes optional.

The brushes I’ve used are also the basic essentials: Sigma E57 Flat Shader brush to lay down the colors, Sigma E35 Blending Brush to blend and Sigma E21 Smudge Brush to diffuse the lash line – both top and bottom.

I used 5 colors out of the Scandalust palette for this look, as pictured in the swatches below. The shadows are quite pigmented, they layer and blend seamlessly.

The shimmer colors apply even more intensely with fingers, or you can spray your brush with water or MAC Fix+ to make them really metallic. I built up the colors with brushes as I prefer a softer look, but feel free to experiment with color intensity depending on your personal preference.

This look pairs perfectly with nude lipsticks or really bright orange/reds too. If you’re feeling really vampy, try a deep maroon or a dark purple lip. The choices are endless!

Yayyy new post and totally worth the wait. I love warm colors also. I have the Colourpop Double Entendre palette. It’s not as warm but I think I can make it work with this style of makeup.

Great choice Heather. Colourpop launched some of the prettiest warm shadow palettes so I’m sure it’ll turn out amazing!

Hi Sarah, do you have any product on your brown bone? and how would you do a smoky eye with this palette? I really want to get it now but I never know how to use the colors. Thank you

Hi Shea, no I didn’t put anything on the brow bone for this look. You can however use the lightest 2 shades out of the palette if you want to highlight the brow bone.
As for smoky eye options, the last 2 colors in the palette – chocolate brown and the wine/red would look amazing. Start by applying the transition color into the crease as I did in my look. Then with a flat shader brush, build either the brown or wine shade (or a mix of both) over the entire eyelid – blending the color into the transition shade. You can again use the lighter colors on the brow bone or add a hint of shimmer into the inner corners of the eye to make it extra glam :)
