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!

I know this sounds weird but if you go to youtube and type in Kat Von D Ludwig Palette Tutorial, there are a lot of videos that show you how to create looks using the palette. Hope this helps!

No it does not come with tips but this palette is very versatile and you can create many different looks with it. Check out my review for more details on how to wear each color.

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.
