Mystery with a touch of feminine charm can be easy achieved with Kat Von D's True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Beethovan. Toussle your hair, add vintage accessories and wear those killer heels to drive those boys nuts. ;-)
Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Beethovan was really hard to find in the major flagship Sephora stores in New York City. For $34, you get 8 intensely pigmented eyeshadows. Kat Von D eyeshadows are creamy, silky and easy to blend. When layered over a primer, there is hardly any creasing.
The palette has a nicely arranged mix of darker blue and purple eyeshadows to create either a dangerous or mysterious-sweet smokey eye.
All these colours remind me of tattoo colours, all coordinated to work well with each other. In the end of the day, you don't need that many different eyeshadows to create a smokey eye. A perfect palette to carry with you on your party weekend, or to do an evening date night evening look.
And if I was a student, I would rock this look everyday.
Today I tried on the first 4 eyeshadows in the Beethovan Palette, namely Lucifier, Speed Blue, Razor Grey and Tequila.
~ I used Tequila, a cream white shade to even out my eyelids and extending to the brow bone.
~ Razor Grey is a soft gunmetal grey with slight seawater green undertones, and this became my main lid colour
~ Speed Blue is a intense sapphire blue which I applied to the upper and bottom lash line, blending out
~ Lucifier, a matte black was applied to the outer lash line, merged with Speed Blue.
Finished off with MAC Blitz & Glitz Gel Liner and Anna Sui Super Black Long Lash Mascara.
Because Sapphire Blue is such an intense shade with incredibly pigmentation, it's easy to overshadow the gorgeousness of Razor Grey. Adding a little bit more of Razor Grey to the crease area gives back the gradation lost over the darker eyeshadows.
There is no glitter or shimmer to the eyshadows, and appears between a matte and metallic eyeshadow. The shadows give a beautiful dimension to the lids, but not too metallic that you often see with traditional buttery eyeshadows.
