Violet Lights is here and we say it’s essential for your make-up kit.
The palette is made up of 14 eyeshadows provide everything you need to transition from day to night. The palette is branded as “Neutrals gone wild” which we think is perfectly fitting.
The shades are a range of shimmers and mattes ranging from oranges and reds to pinks and violets.
W7 are known for their quality dupes and they’ve succeeded again with this release.
The eyeshadows are a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette, but retail at only 1/4 of the price at £9.95 (compared to ABH retailing at £43).
The pigment of these shadows is perfect, with barely any fallout, making for quick and easy application.
The variety of colours has left us reaching for it frequently – great for nipping from the office for after work drinks!
The double-ended brush is lovely and soft. It features a fluffier blending brush for your crease and a flat application brush for the lid.
So how have we been using Violet Lights?
For a day look:
– Using the blending brush, apply white light over the lid as a base.
– Continue using the blending brush to fade chemistry in the crease.
– Add nano sparingly, to deepen the crease.
– Use the flat application brush to apply oxygen to the lid for a pop of sparkle.
For an evening look:
– Apply white light over the lid as a base with the blending brush.
– Blend spectrum through the crease with the same brush.
– Deepen the crease colour with butterfly, still using the blending brush.
– Use the flat applicator to apply chemical reaction over the majority of the eyelid, avoiding the inner corner.
– Use your little finger to apply the cure on the inner corner of your eyelid as a highlight.
For day to night:
– Use the blending brush to apply white light over the lid as a base.
– Using the same brush, blend wavelength through your crease.
– Deepen ever so slightly with spectrum.
– Blend butterfly through the outer crease with the blending brush.
– Apply radioactive over the eyelid with the flat applicator.
– Use your little finger to add sunshine to the inner corner of your eyelid as a highlight.
