Blogmas Day One: Three Recent Looks, Violet Voss Violet Sunset Palette

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Day One of the Twelve Days of Blogmas! I’m super excited to be doing Blogmas again, it’s one of my favorite things to do during December and I’m glad you guys like it too. So we’re going to start off with one of my favorite types of post, a Three Recent Looks and we’re doing it with the Violet Voss Violet Sunset Palette. Though this isn’t a super Christmassy palette, I figured it a good thing to start with because the sunsets you get during winter and the Christmas season can be pretty spectacular and this palette embodies that.

A little info, this is a 10 pan palette with a mix of mattes, shimmers and metallics. It’s a very versatile palette with a great formulation and excellent color payoff. I’m having a lot of fun playing around with it.

For the first look, I went with something very simple. When I first got it and I was looking for some info I went to the Violet Voss website and saw some of the sample looks they had done and wanted to recreate one. Overall I’m happy with how it turned out. The first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow Glowstarter in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper.

For the rest of my face the first thing I did was bronze using the Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer, this really has come one of my go to products since receiving it. Then I applied the Too Faced Makeup & Be Merry Blush and Too Faced Angel Kisses Highlighter.

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime them using the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light. Then I went into the palette and took Lilac and applied it all over my lid and that was it. I rarely do just one shadow on my eyes these days, but I wanted to really test it out. I then took a little bit of Lilac and put it under my eye as well 3/4 of the way and for the rest and the inner corner of my eye I applied Vanilla. I lined my eyes with the BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Black and topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara. For my lips I applied the Sephora Collection #LipStories Lipstick in 36 Spring Break and I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

For the second look I wanted to play with the neutrals in the palette and I think this might be my favorite look that I’ve done with it. I’ve recreated it a couple times since and you might be able to tell that between the first picture and the second I got a new phone so the photo quality is better. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 250, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder

For the rest of my face the first thing I did was bronze using the Nars Laguna Bronzer, then I applied blush from the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee and I highlighted with a combination of the first two shades from the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glowdient Palette

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime them using the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light. Then I went into the palette and took Desert Sand, putting it in the crease. Then I took Amber Sky and did a light layer of that in the crease as well, making sure to blend it well. I then took Dusk and packed that on the outer corner of my eye and took it into the crease just a bit. For the rest of my lid I applied Champagne and mixed it with a little bit of Peach. I took Dusk and put that under my eye about halfway and for the other half and in the inner corner of my eye, I applied a mix of Champagne and Peach. I lined my eyes with the BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Black and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. For my lips, I lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner Pencil and filled them in with the Sophia + Mabelle Hydrating Hybrid Lipstick in Topless. I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

For the third look I wanted to do something really fun and sparkly so that’s what I did and I think it’s a fun look. The first thing I did was prime my face with the Smashbox The Original Photo Finish Smooth and Blur Primer. I got a sample of this in a Sephora order recently and forgot how much I like it. I’m definitely going to have to repurchase. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set it with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper.

Excuse the fact that there’s no picture. It was formatting really weird for some reason but there is one on my Instagram. 

That about wraps it up for this post, I always really like doing this type of post so look out for more in the future. 

Until next time, you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes and welcome to Blogmas :).
