I had had my eye on the Shade + Light Plum Quad by Kat von D for some time, but since I didn’t come across any lightly used previously owned ones, I picked one up from Debenhams at London. They had a wonderful counter with shiny black antique furniture and lovely sales reps.I didn’t catch that the the palette has actual bevelled letters on the cover until I took it out of the cardboard box. I love it!I really like the shape of the palette and the lettering is gorgeous.Plum shades usually work very well on my eyes, bringing out the green in them. For some reason this palette is quite tricky to get to show correctly in photos. I think it looks too red in my pictures, when IRL the two middle shades, especially the darker one, lean more towards purple.
Highlight on inner corner and brow bone, define at the crease and outer edge, contour on the lid and blended up. I blended the edges of contour with the base shade. The liner is Urban Decay Delinquent, a dark purple with some glitter.
I’m still learning how to do make-up after the eye lift, but I’m pretty happy with my lids now! I don’t have to bring the crease shadow as high up as I used to, so I have much more space for blending it out towards the brows. Also my lids is more visible, so it allows better use of light shades on the lid, instead of everything looking like a smoky eye when the hooded part of the lid fell over the moving lid to hide anything I put there.Naturally I wanted to try a smoky eye next!
Look how the scar is almost invisible already! It’s been a little over three weeks since the operation.
