DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadow Palette
Today I’m bringing you the DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadow Palette that you requested! I hit up my collection for cool-toned eyeshadows to share with you, primarily in the pinks, purples, mauves, and reds color families. I did include a few greys and taupes because they’re also cool toned and in the case of Nabla, I wanted to swatch the entire Christmas Mauve collection I bought. Now, you don’t need to buy every single eyeshadow in this post! Pick and choose your favorites from the colors you see here to build your perfect palette.
Makeup Geek PR samples. Everything else purchased by me.
I love my GlamTech palettes! I had them custom made by an Orlando etsy seller, GlamTech. You can get just about any design that you want handmade by GlamTech. These are what I buy now instead of z-palettes. They’re more sturdy and I love that I can get custom designs. They also travel well.
Anastasia Beverly Hills DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadows

Buon Fresco is the perfect sort of pinky taupe matte that I love to use as a transition shade.
metallic seashell pink
Ballet is a metallic seashell pink.
Blushing is a soft peachy pink with a subtle pink shift. This can be a transition shade.

I actually have bought a ton of Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow singles (see swatches). I really need to reswatch them all. For this DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadow Palette post, I focused on these 10 shades from Anastasia because I felt like they were the best suited for a berries palette. These are some of my all-time favorite Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadows. I especially love Pink Champagne, Macaroon, Baby Cakes, Buon Fresco, Gemstone, Enchanted and Rosette.

For Christmas, I bought myself the Nabla Mauve Christmas Palette and several singles. I swatched most of them for my DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadow Palette since I think they fit right in with the purple, mauve, berry and grey tones. These colors are so gorgeous! I haven’t had much of a chance to play with these yet but I especially like Water Dream, Alchemy, Selfish, Glasswork, Mystic, Calypso, City Wolf, Moonrise and Circle.

I recently bought my first Sydney Grace pressed eyeshadows because of Angelica Nyqvist. I was impressed by the formula and color selection. I really hate that the website lacks color descriptions for each shade. The pigmentation is so good! I think these colors are perfect for my DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadow Palette selection.
Sydney Grace is available at Sydney Grace Co. They range from $5 to $6.10.
Colour Pop DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadows
intense deep lilac matte
Skip Sugarpill 2AM and get 143. It’s an amazing magenta berry shade. It’s what I wanted 2AM to be, but 2am always fades on me.
dusty purple matte
Silver Lining is a faded midtone purple matte.
vibrant true pink matte

Say I Do
light pink matte (discontinued, boo)

My Colour Pop DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadow Palette shades are gorgeous and so inexpensive! The only problem with Colour Pop is that they discontinue colors so quickly! I thought every color I used was still in stock but Say I Do is not. I especially love 143, Glass Bull, Say I Do, and Going Steady.
Colour Pop Eyeshadow Singles are available at Colour Pop. They’re $5 each.
Makeup Geek DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadows
medium plum purple matte
Curfew is a beautiful berry purple matte.
shimmery purple with flecks of silver
I don’t know why but I swear that Sensuous looks like it has gold flecks, not silver flecks, on my skintone. It’s a pretty wine purple.
pale purple matte
Wisteria is a good transition shade, being a light purple matte.
bright amethyst purple foil

medium pink matte
Cupcake is a nude pink matte.
medium rose brown matte
Petal Pusher is a rose taupe matte.
I love Makeup Geek and when going through my Makeup Geek eyeshadows vs. what is currently available on the Makeup Geek website I got very depressed. Makeup Geek has discontinued so many colors that would have been perfect for this DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadow Palette! Here are the ones I could include. I especially love Masquerade, Caitlin Rose, Curfew, and Petal Pusher. I just couldn’t believe the number of purples that Makeup Geek has killed off, like Duchess, Motown, Taboo, and Blacklight, just to name a few. I hope Makeup Geek releases a ton of new eyeshadows soon!
Makeup Geek Eyeshadows are available at MakeupGeek.com. They’re $6 to $10 each.
Melt She’s in Parties Stack + Assimilate
Creamy bone shadow with a kiss of a rose gold shift.

The perfect mauve-taupe Ultra Matte.

She’s in Parties
A burgundy frost shade with hints of copper and pink flecks.
She’s in Parties is a metallic burgundy with copper and pink flecks.
She is the prettiest deep plum Ultra Matte Shade.
Meanstreak is a deep plum matte. I use this color all the time, so I had to include it in this post.
Perfect deep taupe matte.
Deep cool taupe matte.
With as much as I love to use the Melt She’s in Parties stack, especially Last Caress and Meanstreak, I realized I needed to include them in my DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadow Palette. Last Caress, Meanstreak and Assimilate are more on the smoky, burnt side as opposed to brights, but I think they fit right in. Meanstreak looks very brown-toned plum in the swatch but when you use it on top of a purple shade, all the purple tones come out. It’s lovely. See my Melt She’s in Parties Stack review.
Melt is available at MeltCosmetics. They’re $17 individually or $48 for most stacks.

Sugarpill is available at BeautyLish and Sugarpill. They’re $11 to $16 each. Suva Beauty is available at Bloomingdale’s and Suva Beauty. They’re $11 each. JD Glow is available at JDGlow. They’re $7.50 each.
Cruelty-free Makeup Look
LASplash Medusa liner absolutely deserves to be in this post because it’s a beautiful maroon / wine / burgundy / oxblood type shade that’s extremely hard to find and goes so well with these cool berry shades. I wish it was available in a pen like the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper.

As I mentioned above, you don’t need every single color in my DIY Cool Berries Eyeshadow Palette post. I’m sure some of these shades appeal to you more than others. With the exception of Melt Cosmetics She’s in Parties Stack being $48, these are all pretty affordable since they range from like $5 to $16. You can put together a great palette with a few of these from each brand.
