Hi guys! Today I wanted to share with you a deep and smoky makeup look that I did a couple of weeks ago using the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Shadow Palette. I don’t often do something with strictly dark, matte shades so I thought it would be fun to test this out. I’ve kept the entire look matte so I’m not even wearing any highlighter *gasp*! The lipstick is creamy though so it adds a bit of shine to the look to break things up.
Primer: Nivea Post Shave Balm (Sensitive)
Foundation: L’Oreal Pro Matte in Classic Ivory
Concealer: Tarte Shape Tape in Fair
Powder: Becca Blotting Perfector
Blush: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed
Contour: Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Kit – Sombre & Lucid (mixed)
Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion (original). Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Shadow Palette – Lazarus (transition), Saleous (crease, lid and under eye). L’Oreal Voluminous Smouldering Eyeliner in Black (waterline). Essence Lash Princess False Effect Mascara (lashes).
Brows:Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner in Universal Taupe and L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper (clear)
Lips: Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Crisis
I really liked the way that my eye makeup turned out. I tend to stray away from dark eye makeup but I think this is simple enough that it doesn’t really need any particular occasion. I’m not really sure how I feel about the lipstick though. I really enjoy Urban Decay Vice in the shade Crisis colour-wise but I don’t know if I like the formula. I find it really difficult to apply it without making a mess. Maybe it’s just me though? I’ll have to check to see if my other lipstick in the cream formula is the same.
