Acid Green Devil (Using Kat Von D Saints and Sinners Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really fancied trying out Vestment (a deep metallic blackened teal) with Exodus (a light matte acid green) together and came up with this eyeshadow combination.  I added in Devil (a matte orange) into the crease to add some warmth and a punchy twist to the look.

To complement the look, I used Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in ‘Lolita II’ (a medium warm terracotta-chestnut) on the lips and The Balm ‘Balm Springs’ blusher (a matte medium dusty, earthy rose) on the cheeks.  You can read more, see photos and view swatches of Lolita II here.

This look shows that red lipstick can be used with eyeshadow shades other than neutrals.  I used peach and coral-red eyeshadows on the eyes to create a very fresh, slightly colourful effect on the eyes.

I completed the look using a peachy-pink blusher (MAC Pinch O’Peach) and a matte, pinky-red lipstick (Loreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Julianne’s Pure Red).

For this look, I brightened up a deep teal smokey eye by applying a true gold eyeshadow on the inner part of the lid.  Using a lighter, shimmery shade on the inner lid adds some contrast when using deeper colours elsewhere on the lid.
