YUSS I finally have the Lime Crime Venus: The Grunge Palette!!! This palette is the bomb! The colors are right up my alley – I’ve been totally into warm reddish browns, berry tones and oxblood tones and the three standout colors of this palette: Venus, Creation, and Muse fall under those categories. I’d be totally satisfied if this palette contained only these three shadows but ofcourse we’ve got the added bonus of 5 more incredibly beautiful shades.
I just played with the eyeshadows a bit and came up with this grungy blown out concoction. I really like how it turned out and the best part for me is the combo of the lips and the eyes! I used a new lipstick which is part of my Sydney Sephora Haul!! (Keep reading to find out the shade) I might do a separate post on what I got from the launch of Sephora in Sydney.
I know I know my face is cleaved off but I solemnly swear it’s no photoshop gimmick, it’s my hair casting a weird shadow
~After priming my lids, I put MakeupGeek Peach Smoothie all over my lid
~Then with a fluffly brush I applied MakeupGeek Creme Brule on my upper crease as a transition shade
~Then with the same fluffly brush I applied Lime Crime Creation on my crease blending it with the transition shade
~Then I applied Lime Crime Venus on my crease dragging it inwards
~Then with a creamy black pencil ( I used L.A. Girl Gel Liner Pencil in very black) I roughly lined my upper lash line
~Then with a pencil brush I started smudging that line
~I took some Lime Crime Icon and Muse on the same pencil brush and went over the smudge bit
~Then with a crease brush I started blending it upward
~As I blended it upward, I started adding a little bit of muse to saturate the color even more
~I blended any harsh edges towards the crease with Venus
~Then I took Icon and darkened the outer crease a little bit
~make sure you BLEND!
~I applied Aura to the browbone with a lighthand because IT IS shimmmmerrry!
~Then with a small detailer brush, I applied shell to my tear duct
~With a gel liner, I did a very thin line on my upper lash line to frame my lashes and a teeny weeny wing
~On the lower lash line, I applied the black pencil on my waterline and then I smudged it out with Muse and Icon
~With a fluffly crease brush and Creation, I blended the bottom bit even more
~I applied Mascara and then falsies : SocialEyes Glamourous

~Benefit Hoola Bronzer
~Tarte Pin Up Girl Blush Palette – Bashful
