Shadow Couture

My first shot at trying out the recent 'Shadow Couture' palette, one of the new fall releases from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I teamed the palette up with this stunning glitter from Violet Voss for extra sparkle to really make these otherwise neutral (but equally gorgeous) shades come to life. 

It was also the perfect excuse to try out another lash brand that is new to myself, and I thought these fluttery lashes from Backstage Lashes were perfect for this look!

Emerald Sparkle

I decided to brighten up my day with this stunning emerald green 'Gwen' glitter from Violet Voss and some of the lovely purple shadows from my Crown Brush 'Smoke It Out' palette. 

Seeing as greens and purple is a fun and brave combination, I decided to finish off the look with a softer lash style. I used 100% mink lashes (cruelty free, of course!) from one of my favourite premium lash brands -Sweetheart Lashes - to bring this look together.
