On March 22, Colourpop Cosmetics released their new collection with Disney, the Disney Villains Collection. Be sure to check out my dramatic eye look using the misunderstood eyeshadow palette for your next villainous night out.
For this look, we are using the eyeshadow palette from the collection just as in my first tutorial but we are toning it down for a casual daytime look. This look is using some of the amazing earthy tones in the palette to create a neutral look that can be dressed up or down and can be worn everyday.
Check out the swatches from the palette to get some great ideas for looks. From day to night and everything in between, this palette has some major potential.
You can see that this palette has some fallout on some of the shimmer shades. This can be reduced by using a bit of water or Fix Plus on your brush prior to application. The shades are rich and pigmented and transfer properly to the skin from my experience.

Let’s get started. First of all, I want to talk about the canvas and some of the products I love, use on a daily basis and used for this look. I have large pores and I love using the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer to prime the face.
It is a misconception that there is a primer for all. I have oily/combination skin on my face so I wouldn’t want a hydrating primer and I don’t go for a full glam matte look very often, so I rarely use a matte primer. This primer works well for me and my skin type and I highly recommend it for those looking to minimize pores and who have oily-combination skin. In addition, I don’t use primer all over my face. I use it on my cheeks, chin and nose for the most part.
Next up is concealer. I received the Marc Jacobs Accomplice concealer from Influenster. This product was free for my review and I absolutely love it. I don’t use it every day as I like to switch up my products but the creamy texture and the coverage is amazing. It doesn’t crease my under eyes and did not cake on the face.
Next, because it is spring time and we are headed quickly into summer, we are going to go for a dewy look. My go to for this look is the L’Oreal Lumi Glotion. Because I spray tan, I use the deep color. The color is not strong and gives more of a dusting of color with a dewy finish and gives a nice brightness and glow to the skin. I dust my Bare Minerals powder over the top of the Lumi Glotion.
For blush, the Ciate London Glow to Illuminating Blush is a must for summer. It gives a radiant glow to the skin and I absolutely love the colors.
Now, for the eyes. The Misunderstood palette which is priced at $22.00 and is available on the ColourPop website and also at Ulta. This is a fifteen piece eyeshadow palette with a wide variety of bold and vibrant colors as well as several neutrals that work really well as transition colors.
The shadows are all pressed powders and are a mixture of matte’s, duochromes and metallics. For this look, we are going to use a great variety of colors that can be built up or can be kept muted for more of a daytime look.
First we are going to go in with a fluffy blending brush with Mongrels. Typically, I don’t like shimmers for my transition color but it worked well for this look. We are going to work this color along the crease beginning on the outside of the eye and slowly working inward. I built the color more on the outside third of the eye than I did on the inner portion but stay along the brow bone to form a separation from from the lid.
Next, we are going to take a slightly smaller brush and dip it into the shade Sing. Sing is a chocolate shimmer shade and we are going to blend that over the previous color Mongrels, and working it more down the lid that the upper portion of the brow bone. This creates a nice separation from the two initial colors and great dimension.
Facile is going to be our next shade. This is a forest green shimmer shade and we are going to take this with a flat brush and tap it onto the lid. This color builds really well but I kept it rather muted as I wasn’t trying to go dramatic and was instead looking for a muted, shimmery green eye. Tap the color onto the lid, using Fix Plus or water to build the color onto the lid if desired.
I am also going to take a small angled brush and drag this color along my bottom lid as well. After you create your initial line along the bottom lash line, use the same brush to buff it out and create a more subtle color line along the bottom of the lid.
I am then going to take Mongrels on a small angle brush and dip it into Mongrels and drag it along the inner edge of the bottom lash line. and the inner corner of the eye. This serves to brighten the eye and open it up.
The last color we are going to use is 101, the matte black on a larger angle brush. I am going to dip (not drag just dip) the brush into the black and angle it up from the outer corner to the lid towards the brow to create a light cat eye. After you make the line, gently buff it inwards towards the lid and brow and then gently dot it on the crease to connect the colors and blend them together.
Grab your brow pencil and line the upper eye and the bottom third of the lower lash line with the espresso color. The final step is mascara of course, along the upper and lower lashes.
I get a lot of questions about my lashes. They are, in fact, all my own. I use a serum called Lavish Lash, purchased off of Amazon for a very reasonable price. I use this product twice daily on the lashes and yes, they are in fact so long, they now touch my eyeglasses. This is not sponsored in any way, Lavish Lash, I’m sure has no idea who I am or that I talk about them but this product is out of this world amazing for lashes and takes far less time and upkeep than lash extensions.
That’s it! That’s our look using the ColourPop Misunderstood Palette. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and give it a try for your next look!
