Classic Neutral Eyes with Wet n Wild Comfort Zone

Hello friends!
Do you ever forget how much you love a particular makeup product?
Today I was using Wet n Wild's Comfort Zone palette as I was getting ready for Beauty Broadcast Live, and I feel like I fell in love with it all over again. I was saying on the live show that I normally think of this as a green palette and forget that the other half is filled with equally gorgeous neutral shades. I used my go-to shadow application format with this look. I'll share the details in a minute- first let's talk about what's on the face! 

Face products...
-Too Faced Air Buffed BB Creme (Cream Glow) - dislike! Claims to be "complete coverage"... it's not.
-Revlon Colorstay Concealer (Light)
-Bare Minerals Well Rested (to set concealer & brighten undereyes)
-Makeup For Ever Pro Finish Powder (128 Neutral Sand)
-Essence Sun Club Matte Bronzer (Sunny)
-The Balm Instain Blush (Houndstooth) -review is coming!

Eye Products...
-Sigma Eyeshadow Base (Persuade)
-Wet n Wild Color Icon Palette (Comfort Zone)
-Milani Ultrafine Liquid Liner (Black Vinyl) - upper lashline
-Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil (Zero) - waterline
-L'oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara - upper lashes
-Maybelline Lash Discovery Mascara - lower lashes
-Salon Perfect Demi Wispies False Eyelashes - not pictured
-Anastasia Beauty Express for Brows & Eyes (Brunette) - not pictured

How I got the look...
-Prime the eyes with Sigma eyeshadow base
(all shadows I'm referring to in the Wet n Wild palette are from the left side)
-Apply the Browbone shade under the brow and around inner corner
-Apply Eyelid shade all over the lid
-Apply the dark brown Definer shade on the outer corner of the eye, lightly in the crease, and smudge it on the lower lashline
-Apply the medium brown Crease shade just above the crease to soften the look and add some warmth
-Extend liquid liner just past the lashline
-Apply black pencil to waterline
-Click here for my tutorial on false eyelashes

Lip Products...
-Too Faced La Creme Lipstick (Nude Beach)
-NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss (Crystal Soda)

Hope you enjoyed the look! This is definitely my go-to shadow format, and I enjoy it because of the way it frames my eye and give it a bit of a lift. All of these shades have some shimmer, and normally I might try to throw a deep matte shade in the crease, but I actually think all of these colors blend really well without looking "muddy". The Wet n Wild shadows are so rich and soft, and I love how it only takes a little bit to get the look you're after. The lashes are definitely key also. I love the thickness that the Demi Wispies give!

  • Currently listening to: Justin Timberlake- Mirrors. Nuts about this song!!


  1. I have this palette as well and it's one of my favourites :) Look the look you achieved with it

  2. What a pretty look. I have the comfort zone palette, but sometimes all those shades are a bit overwhelming and it is nice to have an example of how to put them together. Looks great!

  3. You look AMAZING I love this look, and I think I'm going to try it as well for today. I recently bought the Comfort Zone Palette and have been loving it and I'm super excited about this look you've done with it. :)

    Great job, I love you so much your a huge inspiration to me. I never miss a blog post or a video. Thank-you so much for being exaclty who you are. *Huge hugs to you*

  4. I wasn't going to do any makeup today but now I'm watching Mally on Qvc and reading this blog post has put me in a makeup mood! I have this palette so I'm going to try your look!

  5. Love this! I'm especially wild about the lip combo. When I first looked at your picture I thought: "Oh my, I hope she tells us what she's wearing on her lips!" GORGEOUS! :)

  6. Today was the first morning that I was actually able to catch Beauty Broadcast Live and it was so wonderful to drink my coffee and "hang out" with you all morning! I really enjoy your videos and all-around personality -- I am also from Illinois and I find that I relate most to you for that reason maybe. Is that weird? :)

    I'm so happy that you posted this Comfort Zone look. I keep dragging that palette out of storage and wanting to use it and feeling disappointed whenever I do, but I feel like maybe I'm just not doing it right. This post and how gorgeous it looked on you today has totally re-inspired me to try it again! Thanks!

  8. Funny, I pulled this palette out this morning and wondered why I didn't use it more. So I did. I had forgotten how pigmented the shadows are! Love it though and love the look you created.

  9. You always have the best eye shadow looks! You apply it so flawlessly!

  10. soooo pretty!
    I love your eyes & your lips!
    you look AMAZIONG <3

  11. I have that Wet n' Wild palette and I LOVE it so much. The shades are beautiful! This makeup look is just so pretty!

  12. Thanks for posting the look. I like what you did and I loved this palette too when I bought it and it's just been tucked away as I focus on my high end palettes and forget about the great Wet N Wild shadows I have. Speaking of high end, you were the one who got me into The Balm with the Meet Matte Nude and I'm pumped b/c they had a 50% off sale a couple of days ago and I got the Nudetude & Balm Jovi since you showcased those as well. Thanks for all your awesome suggestions and being so sweet to watch!!

  13. Love NYX glosses .. something about the fruity flavor ;-)


  14. That's so weird! I rediscovered my Comfort Zone palette yesterday too! It kind of got tucked into a corner of my train case, so it was getting very neglected. It is such a great palette!

  15. One of my favorite palettes as well! Love the look you created!

    Glitter and Grease

  16. This is such a gorgeous eye look. Thanks for the breakdown!

  17. So I've gotten into watching Beauty Channels on YouTube and you are one of my faves....but after checking out your blog for the first time and seeing the 'Daily Nuggets' section, you are up to number 1 fave! I'm like obsessed with the word nugget...everything is a nugget. It drives my husband crazy. Ok...that's all!
    PS: Love the look and this pallet. It's my fave by Wet n' Wild

  18. I'm so glad you use the word 'nugget' too. Everything is a nugget for me! It drives my husband nuts!
    Love this pallet and love the look!

  19. I love Mirrors by Justin Timberlake right now too! Great tutorial -

  20. This look is very Mad Men like to me. Love it!

  21. This is my favorite drugstore palette ever! I love it to death! Nice post Emily! xo

  22. You look beautiful, as always! Finally gave me the nudge to buy this palette! Usually, I have limited color on my eyes to a liner as I have deep set eyes, but this will help me to branch out a bit. Now if only I could master the winged liner. Thank you Emily, Tyler and Cupcake. You are a joy to many.

  24. I love your make up every time, you post on your blog or on youtube. <3

  25. I love the look! I recently tried the Too Faced Air Buffed BB Creme and I hated it. It was the oddest combination of clinging to the dry spots on my skin and feeling heavy and oily without really giving coverage. I ended up returning it to Sephora since it was a pricier product and it just didn't seem to work.

  26. I wish WNW was sold where I live!!! That palette is amazing : ) Looking lovely as always darling xx

  27. Hi Emily, could you do a review on eye creams?

  28. I love the colors. Never used wet n wild eyeshadows but hear they're incredibly pigmented. Just might pick this palette up. Really like the colors.

  30. cute look,I tried to recreate it, mine didn't look as cute as yours. I guess I need some more practice.;)

  31. i had the comfort zone palette for a little while, but could never find a look i liked with it. unfortunately, one of the eye shadows broke and i had to trash it. this definitely makes me want to repurchase and try out some new looks!


  32. nice smoky eye look! this would be great for events, so glamorous :)
    would you like to follow each other?

  33. Loved this look! Could you do a look with the green colors too?

  35. Gorgeous look, love the eyeshadow. Would love a tutorial...


  36. love your blog

  37. After I saw u wear this on the live broadcast, I pulled it out and now I use it for my "Victoria secrets" look. You are such an inspiration! Your looks are doable and SOOOO GORGEOUS.

  38. This is one of my absoute favorite palettes, I use mine all the time! Wishing you would do an interview-friendly neutral look... I'm job hunting and I haven't seen anything like that on youtube! Thanks Emily!

  39. This is the perfect everyday look! I pretty much only wear neutrals on my eyes. Thanks Emily!

  40. Been wanting this palette for the longest time. It's just so hard to find here in Phils. ^_^
