I only recently fell in love with the Violet Voss Drenched Metal palette. I bought it up last year from the Makeup Show New York. I swatched it and was like, eh, these colors are pretty but not mind blowing. When I recently did makeup on my friend Judi, I fell in love with them. They blend together very easily. They’re not as pigmented as I like but I think that quality is what makes them so easy to build up and blend. That’s why I decided to use them to create my look on Friday.
My Drenched Metal eyeshadow look was quick and easy to put together. I put Confession on the inner lid and inner v. Then I added Forbidden to the outer lid. I used Secret as my transition / crease color and along the lower lid. I lined my eyes very thinly with the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and thickened it at the outer corner. With my eyes open and looking into the mirror, I added a small flick, then filled it in. I dabbed a bit of highlighter at the inner corner and under the outer brow. That was it!
Of course I love the lips. Hex pencil is one of my all-time favorite Urban Decay pencils and when I pair it with Strange Love it’s perfection. I get a deep lip without being so dark that it’s hard to discern the shade. And popping on Celestial makes it fun.
Makeup Geek Celestial is going strong as my most used highlighter. I wear it daily. I think it’s gorgeous all over the face, to highlight the eyes, and of course on the lips. It’s hard to beat!
