no. i'll tell you how i do mine and it's a popular way of really making the eyes pop as well as making them appear larger: apply lighest shade on brow bone (basically follow right underneath the brow), apply it on inner corner of eye. take second lightest shade and sweep it under that lightest shade under neath your brow and bring it to the crease, blend it towards the inner corner. take the next darker shade and apply it all over the lid. with no pigment on the brush, no shadow on it, blend upwards, going over and over it with the brush. if you're new, this is tricky. a lot of people take the next darker shade and put it in the crease but it's not easy to do. take the darkest shade you'll use and put it on the outer corner, making sure it extends to the outer corner and there's no gap between where you put it on your lid and the lashes. take your finger and rub it gently towards the middle. i would say cover the outer third with that darkest color, or less, and blend it to almost half way. you don't want to see where one color ends or where one starts; it should be a gradient of colors. use a clean finger when you switch spots or you'll accidentally apply that darker color elsewhere, and keep blending until everything looks smooth and the colors flow together. i'm guessing you're new at doing makeup so do not use the brushes in the palette. they're terrible, and even though i've been doing my makeup since i was 13/14,(18 now), it takes me three times as long to blend the colors and distribute the shadows evenly with those tiny brushes. they make great lining brushes, so you can take a dark color on the tip of one and apply it along the lash line. use your finger to blend it a little and that gives a soft, smokey eye. hope this helps! another tip- look up makeup tutorials on youtube. just search makeup tutorial, or for something specific, like cat eye, or any other makeup look you've heard of. there are many people on youtube who post regular videos on how to do makeup and a lot of them use sephora products.

Nope, no tips on achieving the perfect "Kat's Eye" or what colors to use together are included. However, this palette is a great collection of neutrals that all go well together and compliment each other. I like to use Baroque as a lid shade and Leather, Downtown or Tequila as accents. My eyes are hazel, and using Orbi on my lids really makes them pop.

When all else fails, experiment - Kat often uses different colors on either eye or changes us up with a funky liner, etc... Have fun!

It didn't come with tips or a how-to. But, the basic eye usually includes 2 colors- a lighter color all over and a darker color in the corners and creases. I hope that helps :)

There are not any instructions included, but I have found that the colors are very blendable. Start with one of the darker shades along the lash line, blend in some of the next lighter shades, and highlight along the brow bone and inner tear duct corner of the eye with the lightest shades. Truely beautiful and worth the money. If you really want the colors to pop, use an eyelid primer.

It's kind of a personal preference as to where you put certain colors. Some people put darker colors on the lids and lighter ones above the lids, other people do it vice versa. I've noticed with these palettes by Kat Von D that great color combinations can be made when the shimmer colors are put directly on top of other flat colors. I've found some great looks by just experimenting.

Question
Ludwig or Naked?
I have had my eye on both this palette and the coveted Urban Decay Naked, and I'm not sure which one to get! They both have rave reviews, but I want to know what people think if they go head to head. Which one is better? My aim is have a versatile palette that can go from day into night, and I mainly go with neutrals. (And I have brown eyes and light to medium skin tone if it helps) Thanks!

I would have to say the naked palette, simply for the versatility of everyday looks, plus the overall quality and durability of the product. I had both, and my Ludwig Palette shattered after only one use - and I never even dropped the palette. I noticed that several people complained on here about broken shadows, so I say save yourself the headache and get the Naked Palette if you can only get one. Urban Decay is a fabulous brand, I think you will be pleased. Good luck! :)

Naked pallette by far. More versatile, more colors, more variety in color and texture. Better quality in my opinion too. Def. go with Naked.

I would say Naked. Urban Decay has the best pigmentation and long lasting wear of any brand. I found the Ludwig palette to be a disappointment; the colors are much lighter than they appear.

I would go with Ludwig. The browns and creams give a nice neutral color for day. The greens and black of course is for nighttime. I receive so many compliments when I wear this pallette. It is highly pigmented and it lasts (with an eye primer underneath). I highly recommend it.

Personally, I think that this palette is a lot more versatile for me. I have brown eyes and am fairly pale, but occasionally wear green contacts. I am much happier with the Ludwig palette than I would have been if I got the UD Naked palette. I think you should try both out and return whichever one you like the least since Sephora has a great return policy. Everyone raves about the Naked palette, but I personally couldn't see myself using all of the colors whereas I would DEFINITELY use all of the colors in the Ludwig palette. Heck, I used 6/8 of the colors within the first two days of owning Ludwig! :P

It depends on the look that you're going for on this palette. If you are doing a everyday, light look, you should were a nude o peachy based lipstick/lickgloss. If you'e darken it up for night, go with a moe bold lip color like a brighter and/or darker pink or red

I like to use Kat von D's Lolita lipstick with this palette - it's a nice neutral for every day wear. When I want to pump up the volume and go for something a little more flashy, I like to go with Dior Addict in Pink Lust- it gives you that classic pin-up look when paired with a smoky eye from this palette!

I'm the color of a hershey bar and I really like the green end of the Ludwig palette. Very sexy w brown eyes I think. The colors on the brown/warm end wash out to a general bronzy effect on me, but work a bit better layered wet/with primer. If it were more matte, it would make a good neutral eye.

the great thing about these eye shadows is that its pigmented, and I'm a brown girl, and it works well :) just use a primer or a base to help the colors not crease or fade. you can build the intensity of the colors too. the browns will give you a nice natural look, and the black and greens will give you a nice smokey look :) because our brown skin absorbs color, if you want more intensity you could apply it wet to make the color pop more. but it goes well with dark skin tones, i think :)

It all depends on your Sephora store. At my mall, we have two Sephora's. One has the palettes, while the other has the perfumes. So it all really depends on which store you go to. And yes, it is online. That's how I purchased mine.

Yes, this palette works well with all eye colors in my opinion. For a day look, I would wear The medium shimmery beige color (Downtown) all over the lid with the coppery bronze color (Baroque) in the crease, the dark matte brown (Leather) as a liner on the upper and lower lashline, and the pale golden shade (Tequila) on the brow bone and inner eye corners. For a night look, I would wear the light green (Dimebag) all over my lid with the darker green (Orbi) in the crease and the matte black (Lucifer) in the outer corner and as a liner on the upper and lower lashline, and Tequila as a highlight.

I have gotten so many compliments on my eyes after beginning to use this shadow. For day at work, i use the Clay on my upper eye, right under my eyebrow, then I use the Lucifer as a liner with the little brush above my lashes. For the lid, I do the inner half with the Downtown and the outside half with the Dimebag. It is subtle and pretty and different. For night I do an outside half with the darker green or the black, and then go lighter as i go towards the inner eyelid.
