Hear from Motives Creative Advisor Maria Checa about the inspiration behind the Motives Thrill Me Palette. Maria spends countless hours researching what is trending in the fashion industry so we can create hot on trend Motives products for our Beauty Advisors.
Tell us about the Thrill Me palette, what inspired you to choose the colors in the palette?
Through a lot of research, we are able to visualize and look forward to what the new colors and trends will be. We use a lot of tools and a little bit of chance and we are always spot on with trends! Just like with any fashion designer, if you look at the history of seasons of shows the trends develop by tweaking from the previous season.
Fashion plays a big role in the creation of a palette. Studying fashion trends gives a good forecast for the next season. We have a program that forecasts colors for the seasons ahead. We use the same tools that the biggest people in the industry use, like fashion designers which tell us where the fashion trends and colors are heading. The entire industry uses this program so we are comfortable with this forecast.
How do you use these new products together?
I am in love with this palette because it is a 100% multi-purpose palette. How you use it is up to you! It is important to note that we designed these products before seeing any of the runway pictures. You see on the runways that the current fashion trend is whether you want to wear a floral, edgy or just a simple look. Current runway looks also include a rosy pink, and we have that pink in the Thrill Me palette which could be used as a lipstick or blush. We have it all in this palette!

This palette has bright colors. Some people can be intimidated by them, how can they use this palette?
In spring people wake up from the winter so you want fun colors; this palette gives you that! Bold colors bring life so don’t be afraid! We have two new bold eyeliner colors to create your own look with. For just a little pop of color, you can use our Azure or Radical eyeliner on the lash line paired with a neutral eyeshadow all over the lid. What is great is that our cream eyeshadows can be used with a brush or your finger and can be smudged because they are highly blendable. Metallics are also on trend right now used on eyes, cheeks, and lips. Try putting a little metallic eyeshadow on the lips with the Lip Illusion Polish to achieve this look. It only takes just a dab! It’s easy to take it to the next level from day to night. There are so many different looks out there, so you take it to the level you want.
This palette is fun and multi-functional that can be used in so many different ways. You can make your own unique looks that thrill!
