I decided to reminisce about the fun of the 80s, and had a lot of fun with this shadow! With the exception of three colors, the new Kat Von D Metal Crush shadows are so pigmented and go on very smoothly.
I prepped with Dior Capture Totale moisturizer and Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield SPF 30. For foundation, I used Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup in 7.0, followed by Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Medium Dark Warm. I set with Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish powder.
I used the Kat Von D Shade Light palette to contour and highlight. I used NARS blush in Deep Throat on my cheeks. For my brows, I used It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil, and Anastasia Clear Brow Gel. I went with MAC Viva La Glam Gaga 2 on my lips.
Now, for the best part- the eyes! The Kat Von D Metal Crush shadows only contain one blue shade. I rarely use just one shade of shadow, even if I’m going for a monochromatic look. When just one shade is used, there isn’t really any depth. (Although some looks call for just one shade, that’s not what I was going for.) Therefore, I turned to Urban Decay’s massive amount of shadows to add some depth to the Kat Von D.
First, I used Smashbox Photo Finish 24 Hour Shadow Primer to prep. I used Lycan from the Kat Von D Innerstellar palette on my entire eyelid. For my lids, I used the Kat Von D Paranoid, of course, with Urban Decay Ransom in the crease, and Peace in the corners to help add depth to the Paranoid. I also used Shell Shock from Urban Decay’s Vice 2 palette in the inner corners. I lined with Doucce Ultra Precision Eyeliner, and used Benefit Roller Lash mascara.
I had so much fun with this Paranoid shadow, that I definitely foresee thinking of excuses to use it regularly. Well, dangit. Now I want to listen to Faster Pussycat or Motley Crue…
