What is Multichrome Eyeshadow?

Multichrome eyeshadows are complex shades that shift between multiple colours depending on how the light catches them. These sparkling shades are made to be seen, bringing a playful, colour-shifting ability to any eye look.

The pigments in multichrome eyeshadows interact with the light and toy with colour to create a hypnotic, kaleidoscopic effect. Colours flex and morph on the lids with the blink of an eye or turn of the head, giving your eye makeup that chameleon-like shift that mesmerises the world!

These stratospheric shades are a show-stopping finishing touch for your eye makeup, transforming the look of your eyes with dazzling shine that FLIPS and FLASHES in multiple prismatic colours.

  3. Charlotte's Eye Blender Brush is a fluffy brush that's perfect for getting a seamless blend

    STEP 3: Blending Tips and Tricks

    To blend out the edges, tap a clean Eye Blender Brush onto the edges of your eyelid, diffusing your multichrome eyeshadow to remove any harsh lines and blending seamlessly into your crease. The goal is to coat your lid in multi-dimensional sparkle, without letting the formula travel into other areas such as around the eyes or onto the sides of the nose. As a finishing touch, sweep your Powder & Sculpt Brush under the eyes to make sure they look smooth and mistake-free.
