Kat Von D Blues!

A friend of mine just got herself Kat Von D's Metal Orchestra palette, which is a palette I've had since last Christmas.  I've kinda been neglecting it so I decided I'd use that for my look today!  I posted a look like a million years ago using this palette (along with how I used to bleach my hair) but I like the look I did today much better.  Of course the addition of glitter makes everything better haha.

I'm beyond happy that you can kinda see the glitter here!




And I figured I would try this out and see what you guys thought: 
And on the inner part of my lid (over 7) I added some NYX Candy Glitter liner in "Silver" and some of Calypso Mineral's loose silver glitter on top of that to see if that would help it to show up on camera any better.  I think it helped a little, not much, but a little.

My liner is MAC Blacktrack fluidline and my mascara is L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black.

Let me know if you think this type of "paint by number" is helpful at all and if it is, I can try to do more (using the Naked palette and stuff like that).  

As always, thank you all so so so much for all of your support!  It means so much more to me than you'll ever know!!!

  20. Holy moly guys! I wasn't expecting this type of reaction! I'm glad you guys found the numbering system helpful! I'll definitely do that some more!!

    @Kassie: This palette is on clearance at Sephora right now so it's definitely a good deal but I have to say I MUCH prefer my Tattoo Chronicles palette to this one. The texture of the shadows is much nicer in that and the pigmentation... it just amazing.

    @Sheer Beauty: I'll definitely do something like that sometime!!
