Yesterday, I posted an image on my Instagram featuring my Viseart Cool Mattes palette and of course it had a lot of likes. Suddenly, I realized I had not done a proper “review” of this palette. I actually started using it since May and just forgot the cool mattes by Viseart is fairly new in my makeup artist kit. Suffice to say, I am a huge Viseart fan and today I am bringing you a mini LOTD with the swatches of this awesome palette.
When I got this at the Makeup Show New York, I had a really hard time because I also wanted the editorial brights palette and the dark mattes and a budget for only ONE of the three. I chose the cool mattes simply because I needed a buildable working palette for the variety of work I do, commercial/ print work as well as my creative for fun submissions for various publications online. For the creative, I typically will bring my Makeup Forever Flash Palette and use Viseart – both give me major intensity with little fallout and COLOR. This is the kind of palette that offers the ability to add other mediums such as a cream shadow or a pencil and the colors get more intense. Viseart shadows also happen look great on brows, see mine?
For my LOTD, I felt like creating an eye look show you that mattes and cool tones don’t necessarily mean boring or lacking vibrancy. I started with an eye primer and added a mixture of a pale skin flesh color from Viseart cool mattes, then added a dark grey on my lids. For something a little different I lined my under eyes using the dark blue, going over several times and sealing with a teal Sephora pencil. Also, I filled my brows more than I would normally with my Senna Sketch a Brow pencil in Mink, which I LOVE. Once I sketched what I needed for my brows, I also used some of the browns in my Viseart mattes to add extra wow factor. Of course there is eyeliner, mascara, moisturizer and foundation but that is it. I’ve already covered Face Atelier Ultra Skin on a previous blog and that’s what I am into lately.
If I wanted this look to stay on bullet proof, I spray a ton of Skindinavia all over my face and also Makeup Forever Mist and Fix. Metallics are really popular right now but to me they are not age friendly and when I remove, I hate having glitter eyes for days, mattes are my love. Feel free to drop any questions you may have.
