The blues 💙 lotd

It’s been a while since I’ve done any makeup post…and I found this to be the perfect opportunity! As you all are well aware…I usually stick to my pinup/winged liner looks. What’s awesome is I didn’t realize that’s what my friends knew me as. A cheeky pinup tart. Who knew. Though that is nice…it’s also a good idea to step outside the box and try new/different stuff. You never know what you might like. I had some extra time before work and hadn’t done anything with this Kat Von D palette…so i figured why the hell not.

I actually really like how it all turned out and got a huge amount of complements- which is always nice. Kind of reminded me of the first time I wore red lipstick out in public. I was really unsure until I got some awesome feedback…now it’s borderline normal for me to wear red lips. So this was a good exercise for me. Some things I like to keep in mind when doing stronger looks is that your base/ foundation have to look as flawless as possible. I also tend to go heavier with blush and bronzer to warm the face back up. On smoky eyes I almost always used false lashes too. My real ones are really long but they can still get swallowed up but all the darkness. A good eyeshadow base is also necessary…creasing on darker colors is just not a good look.

As far as the Kat Von D palette…this one is the metal orchestra one. Unfortunately I got it n sale and it’s no longer available. But I wanted to still show it in case you either have it or have similar colors. Also wanted to mention that even though KVD is a celebrities brand and sometimes those don’t go too well…this ones freaking awesome. Very unique with her shade shifter eyeshadows (they change colors when wet) and just really awesome pigmentation. I really like her palettes because all the colors are cohesive as well. Only part I don’t like is that the brushes added are pretty much dumb and useless…small price to pay right?

All in all I think I’m going to push myself to try new types of looks more often (when I have time) to kind of round myself out and change things up!

Hope you beauts are having an awesome week and I’ll catch up with you later!
