Kat Von D Inspired

Hello everyone! I'm back with an inspired makeup post. This is actually supposed to be a contest entry for YouTube. I haven't uploaded the video yet. It was raining and cloudy all day so I'm not sure if the lighting was good.

I chose Kat Von D for the contest. But I'm afraid I might not enter due to the bad lighting of the video. Here's the inspiration pic:

I was inspired by this photo so I didn't exactly replicate everything. The liner was winged out extending towards the brow and I decided to draw on a few less stars. I thought the tomato-red lips complimented the eyes very well. This look was created with the 88 warm palette.

If you're a sucker for neutrals I would suggest getting this. Although I would like to mention that you may experience some fall-out with this palette as the shadows can be somewhat chalky. If you use a good base and pat the shadows on as opposed to sweeping it on, you should be good to go. You can search for it on ebay, just type in 88 warm palette. Or you can always go to

I don't know how you do it. I always feel like wearing both strong eyes and strong lips for me always make me look like a scary clown. :(

Wow, this look is gorgeous! I'm normally a belief in the "don't use both warm and cool colours together" rule, but I think you broke the rule and pulled it off perfectly! And I agree with all the other girls - I actually preferred your eye look :P

LJ said...
