I had a ton of fun this weekend playing around with the Vice 3 palette! I mentioned on Friday that I was feeling a little intimidated by the pinks in the palette:
This one. Normally I steer clear of pinks. I tend to dislike the way rosy hues look on my eyes—maybe it’s because I struggle with tired red eyes, I don’t know. At the same time, I don’t like to shy away from a challenge and so I decided to hit the pinks right away!
And this is what I came up with.
And on the whole, I was pretty happy with it! I brought the shadow in my outer corners out a little further than I normally do and lined my eyes a lot more heavily than is typical, but I think I like the difference! Probably not something I would do for an average day, but great for an evening out or the odd occasion where I do get out of the house!
Here’s how I did it:
After priming my lid, I applied Alien to the inner third of my lid.
Then I added Bondage to the outer corner of my eye. I also smudged this along my lower lash line.
Then I applied Alchemy over my entire lid, including light application over the Alien and Bondage which were already on my lid. I realized that there’s a fine line with these colors between something that’s nice-looking and something that looks like I’ve got a shiner. So after I applied the Alchemy, I blended the colors really well, particularly with that darker Bondage color. I brought the colors a little higher off the outer corner of my eye so they would be more noticeable. As I mentioned earlier, I smudged Bondage along my lower lash line.
Last, but not least, I added a little Bobby Dazzle below my brow and to the inner corner of my eye for a highlight.
And that’s about it!
After playing around with this palette, I am loving it more and and more! I’ve heard a few complaints that there are too many neutrals, and while I can understand the feeling, I’m also excited to dig into those neutrals a little more. They are really pretty and I feel like they make the palette as a whole even more versatile.
