”My go-to palette at the moment! Let me just say the pigment is amazing, a little bit goes a LONG way. Yes, it’s a $42.00 product but if you’re looking for a quality pigment, Anastasia is your girl.”

WHAT YOU GET: (1) Subculture Palette
Duo Chrome Shades (Cube, Electric):
Pair with a setting spray to achieve added intensity. Small synthetic brushes are ideal for applying duo chrome finishes when using setting spray. When using shades dry, pair with a natural hair brush for maximum intensity, or apply with clean fingertips (if using the palette for self-application).
Metallic Shades (Adorn):
Pair with a setting spray for a high impact metallic finish. Flat synthetic brushes are ideal for applying metallic finishes, as well as clean fingertips (if using the palette for self-application).
Ultra-Matte Shades (Dawn, Roxy, Destiny, Fudge, All Star, Untamed, Mercury, Edge, Axis, Rowdy, New Wave):
It is recommended to use dense brushes to deposit color and fluffy brushes to blend edges.
Prime with a self-setting or matte finish primer, rather than cream or emollient-based primers.
For Duo Chrome and Metallic finishes, a shimmer base can also be used to amplify the shadow, such as the shimmer side of Highlighting Duo Pencil.
If you do use a concealer as a primer, wait for it to dry and set with powder before applying shadows.
Patting or packing color on works best and can be done over blended shadow also for added intensity.
