I haven't blogged in forever because of some life changing events that have taken place since November. However, I'm now enrolled in a makeup class and want to start getting more active with the blog. So, here are a couple of pictures of a casual evening look I did using the Kat Von D 'Adora' palette.
I primed my lid with Urban Decay Shadow Insurance and then smudged 'Bloodletting' from the palette over my lid and into the crease. I highlighted my brow with 'Albino' then blended 'Glock' into the crease and up the brow bone a bit. I added a little extra on the outer 'v' for a bit more depth. On the lid I used 'Holy Bible' on the lid. I lined the upper lash line with a pen black eyeliner, then put some 'Glock' under the lower lashes. I went over the top line with 'Ace of Spades' and brushed a little of that underneath as well. Then I curled my lashes and used L'oreal Voluminous mascara in black.
Here's the finished look:
I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out, though my cheeks look a little pale in this photo. I could have done a little contouring and highlighting, but I was in a hurry and it was just a casual get together with friends. I'm just pleased that my eyes don't look dark underneath as I've been having a hellacious time with dark circles as of late.
For foundation I used M.A.C. Studio Tech in NW20. I have no idea what lipstick that is -- I think it's Celebutarde by Kat Von D as well.
Notice that my eyebrows are a good match to my hair. Yay me!
Anyway, I'm totally in love with the Kat Von D eye shadows. I bought the Ludwig palette as well and they're two of my favorite kits. The shadows are very creamy and pigmented with minimal fall out. They blend like a dream! I'm also very impressed with the lipsticks from this line. I bought a limited edition collection of minis and love each color. There's not one that I wouldn't wear. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like this collection are available now, which is too bad.
