Velvetine Dream

Ashy hair, smokey features...this is the inspiration for the look I created using Lime Crime's Venus Grunge palette and Cashmere liquid matte lipstick from the Velveteen collection that Lime Crime was kind enough to gift me. Not surprisingly, another attempt to achieve translucency. There's something irresistible about emulating the timeless look of a goddess, where muted hues sculpt the structure of the face, while a sheen accentuates its texture. Rather than emphasize distinct features, a monochromatic palette brings eyes, brows, and lips together as parts of a whole. The result is a subdued look that commands attention in the most subtle way: a play between shadow and glow.
