Shay Mitchell collaborates with Smashbox

Shay Mitchell has produced an eye shadow collection for Smashbox Costmetics.

The 'Pretty Little Liars' actress six Cover Shot: Eye Palettes will be available on Cyber Monday (28.11.16) on Sephora.com, but then will be withdrawn from sale until December 15.

The 29-year-old beauty is "super stoked" with the range because she has always loved Smashbox's products.

She said: "I've always loved make-up. For me, when I get to play around with it, especially eye shadows, I play a different character.

"I've always been a fan [of Smashbox], so it was really a perfect fit.

"I think a primer was the first thing that I ever bought from them. They have great lip glosses and lipsticks, but I am super stoked about these palettes because they're different than anything I've seen before."

The palettes each feature six eye shadows and two base shades, and Shay loves the different looks each one can create.

She said of Smoky: "I probably use this and the matte palette the most. But this one is my favourite because I tend to do smoky eyes a lot.

"With the Matte palette, you can create a natural look or go really smoky, which I love because with matte eye shadows you can get away with a little bit more because there's no shimmer."

The 'Mother's Day' actress recommends Metallic or Bold for those who want to be adventurous.

She told People Style: "This [Metallic] palette is so fun. One of my make-up artists uses eye shadows to actually highlight like cheekbones, and I think you can do with the shades in this palette.

"[Bold] is great for festivals or parties. It's truly is a rainbow palette and so bright. It's something you really want to have fun with and use to make a statement with your eyes."

Of the three other palettes, Shay thinks the "warm tones" of Ablaze can be good for a simple every day look, or made more "bold" for a stunning evening look, while she thinks Softlight is a perfect simple and natural collection.

And she thinks the matte and shimmer shades found in Golden Hour are great for every occasion.

She said: "This palette is awesome because it's bendable. You can create a softer smoky eye, or use the shades [in combination] with the other palettes."
