When I think of Promise and her incredible transformations, I once again think of magic! Being the ultimate shapeshifter, Promise’s gorgeous creations are truly awe inspiring. She knows how to have fun with makeup and I was incredibly excited to work with her to create the Shapeshifter Palette for this year’s #PixiPretties Collection.
Promise shared with us some of the inspiration behind the Shapeshifter Palette – read on to see what she had to say!
How would you describe your palette?
Promise: I would describe my palette as the sculpting essential for natural to dramatic transformations. It is inclusive for everyone.
What do you love about your palette?
Promise: I was able to create something that I’ve always wanted to share with my viewers. There are so many options for contouring and highlighting—all of the shades that I use to do my transformations—and I’m so glad that I can finally share that with my audience and guide them step by step.
What is your inspiration for the product and shade names?
Promise: The inspiration for the product and shade names came from my love for my homeland Nepal. It’s a huge part of my identity and I wanted to celebrate it with this palette.
I think many people are familiar with some of the words like Karma or Spice and even Namaste, but I also wanted to include a few others that might not be as well-known. For example, Momo is my favorite food from Nepal. It’s spicy dumplings with tomato salsa – I love and can’t live without dumplings! Catmandu is another name I wanted to include. The city of Kathmandu is where I grew up for half of my childhood, but I spelled the name differently in the palette to give it a fun twist!
Promise’s Shapeshifter Palette features 9 silky soft shades to bring out your best features and sculpt them to perfection.
I love the versatility of this multi-use palette – there are so many ways to use it beyond contouring and highlighting. Here are some of my favourite ways to get creative with this palette:
• Try using the buttery powders as eyeshadows. The palette has a variety of options that can be used as base, transition and defining shades.
• To give lashes some depth, mist a liner brush with Makeup Fixing Mist before dipping into one of the deeper shades in the palette, then press your brush just at the base of your lashes.
• For maximum payoff, spritz your brush with Glow Mist before applying the powders. This creates a bit of a liquid-to-powder texture and gives your look more staying power.
