Huda Beauty Mini Palette Mauve Obsessions Look

The holiday party season is approaching, so it felt the right time to share an easy sparkly makeup tutorial that will come in handy when all the Christmas celebrations start. I recently remembered that I own the Huda Beauty Mini Palette in Mauve Obsessions, so, I wanted to give it a chance by creating a festive eye makeup look with it. Let me tell you I loved it, so it earned back its place to my main makeup rack. Can’t wait to create more looks with it!

Huda Beauty Mini Palette – Mauve Obsessions Makeup Tutorial

What you’ll need

Step 1

Take the lightest color of the palette and apply it to the whole lid. This will make the shadows blend easily. Then take the light brown color of the palette and with a fluffy brush apply it to the higher point of the lid. This will be your transition shade, so remember to blend well.

Step 2

With a flat brush mix the two darker burgundy colors and lightly pack them on the outer corner of the upper lid. Take your blending brush and blend well until there is an ombre effect between them and the transition shade.

Step 3

Take the dark purple color of the palette and add it to the outer corners of the upper lids, a little lower than the two previous colors. Blend well for a seamless result. Then take the same color into a flat brush and pack it carefully to the outer corners of your lower lashline. Take the blending brush and blend it outwards for a softer result.

Step 4

Time for the fun part. The glitters! Wet your flat brush and pack a generous amount of the boldest glittery eyeshadow. Apply it to the center of the upper lid. Don’t be afraid to add more for an ultra-shiny result. After you finish, apply what is left on the brush to the center of your lower lashline.

Step 5

Take the lighter glitter shadow and apply it to the blank space of the upper lid. Make sure to be generous and blend between the two glitter shadows for a seamless result. Repeat what you did with the previous glitter shadow. With what is left on the brush color the remaining part of your lower lashline.

Step 6

Apply the lightest shimmery color from the Huda Beauty mini palette to your inner corners. That will give some extra shine and make your eyes look bigger (I promise this picture doesn’t do justice to this step).

Then, apply a generous coat of mascara. For a dramatic effect, you can add falsies and eyeliner, but I choose not to do it because I was pretty satisfied with the result after the application of mascara. Last, I went for my favorite everyday muted lipstick which is the shade velvet teddy by Mac and voila! You are now good to go!

    You really did your thing with that tutorial. The step by step break down and the photos really gave me a better understanding of how to apply this particular eye shadow palette properly. It really is a festive look. Would you pair it with red lipstick? Do you recommend any particular brand?

      Pairing it with red lipstick would be a bit too much for my taste, but there is nothing stopping you from doing it. I would recommend the Ruby Woo shade by Mac. It is the perfect universal red! I hope this helped! Thank you for stopping by 🙂

    Even though I’m not a lady, I am very much into makeup and I always love to take my time to explore its world and what knowledge I can pick from it. Huda beauty mini palette obsessions mauve is a good idea, I love the simplicity and the beauty you created with this look. I’ll share it with my wife, I know she’ll love it!

    Oh! THANK YOU for doing this post with so many pictures of both your eyes open and eyes closed.  This gave me SO MUCH of a better idea of how to do it.  I’ve always been a bit of a make up moron. YOU did the best job I’ve ever seen.  I actually did phone some makeup artists and I asked them what color makeup I should be using and I forget exactly the term but it was the deep purple – not mauve (which looks AWESOME on you!) They were right! It made my eyes look fantastic and I can now see how using your method would make them look even better!  Thanks again, from a “makeup moron”!

    Thanks for this great post about the mauve obsession make up tutorial. I usually do my makeup myself, but my friends do tell me it’s not blended enough. I watched so many videos online but still couldn’t get it. After seeing this I think I got a better idea of it, so thanks. Gonna try this out again this week!

    Thanks for sharing this amazing article, it is actually a very good idea to have a makeup guide like this for the ladies who are into face beats and want the kind of festive look you have. Having those pictures is a good idea, it’ll show readers and people who’d love to try it what it’ll look like exactly. It’s nice to read lovely posts like yours.

    I love the simplicity of this look and the outcome and how perfect the blend seems. This is really great and I know that it would be cute on my face too. Though I have never tried the Huda beauty mini palette obsessions mauve before, by the little I have read, I just couldn’t overlook it. It seems really great and worth purchasing. Thank you so much for sharing!

      Yes, it is a great palette to have if you are into these colors. It is also small so you can take it everywhere with you! I can’t recommend it enough!

    Omg Kate! This is such a beautiful eyeshadow look! It’s hard to do a written makeup tutorial as opposed to a video, but you really nailed it. I have tried huda lipsticks and gloss, but I’ve never tried her eyeshadows. They look so beautiful!

    Hi Kate!

    Just amazing. I must say that you have impressed me with the way the tutorial was outlined. Any novice will easily grab it although I think it will take a lot of practice to be as good as you. One question though, where can these items be purchased easily?

      Hi Benny
      I have included some links in my post from which you can purchase it. Of course, you can always check the stores that are close to you. They might have it as well! Thanks for stopping by!

    I honestly don’t know how to work with multi-shades for my eye shadow. Anything more than 2 colors and I am confused. So it’s interesting how you make full use of all 9 colors on the palette, which by the way, are all my favorite shades. Your step by step makes it easy to understand. I also wondered when it’s the right time to put on the glitters.

      Thanks Cathy. Well, glitter shades can be easily worn during the holiday season whenever you feel like it. Otherwise, I personally rock glitter eyeshadows when I go out on the weekends. Hope this helped!

    you are looking stunning with this makeup and the jewelry suits you.

    Hi Kate. I am in the hunt for a palette for my wife and Huda beauty mini palette obsessions mauve really looks perfect on you. My wife shares almost the same body skin with you so I feel it could be the perfect blend for her too. Though I am not too vast in all these, it however presents itself in a more good manner to me. Hence I’d purchase this for her today! Thank you! My search is finally over!

      I think your wife will appreciate it and have a lot of fun with it. So glad I could help!
