I haven’t been this excited about a matte eyeshadow since… well I can’t remember when. I’m old dammit. You’ll just have to trust me on this.
I snagged the Viseart Dark Mattes Palette at The Makeup Show (I wasn’t messing with IMATS. Ya’ll know why) this year, and I’ve been losing what’s left of my collective mind ever since. The palette colors are fantastic. They range from warm to cool in shade and undertone. All 12 of the colors feel creamy to the touch, blend beautifully, and layer like nobody’s business.
That’s one swipe per color. That orange/red at the top is a BEAST. My goodness. You have to go light with these; I looked a little crazy the first few times I started playing around. But eventually I got the hang of it. Go light, then layer as needed. That’s my advice.
Medium Green (lid) / Medium Brown (crease)
Plum (lid) / Dark Blue (outer corner)
(with the plum/blue combo)
(with just matte taupe on the lids)
You can do just about anything and everything with this thing (I recently used the plum as blush on a warm-toned client. Worked like a charm. It did NOT go red on her skin). If you can snag this palette, DO NOT HESITATE. I’m just saying
