FOTD: Volturi Twilight Myth, Dusk & Dawn, MAC Nuance & Shimpagne
So I got a little hooked on to the Volturi Twilight Beauty Eye Shadows. They've wowed me for the amount of shimmer they produce over top of a good base. I ended up getting Dawn, a darkened champagne color. I'm surprised I didn't get it last time I was at London Drugs, but am more than happy I got it now.
This is just one way to work these colors, however it can be vamped up more by using Dusk from Volturi Twilight Beauty in the middle third of the lid rather than Myth and pushing Myth to the outer third of the lid. Just one thing about Dusk, it is described as "deep metallic eggplant" on the Twilight Beauty site, however I think it's more a darkened wine or burgundy. The other descriptions are accurate than that for Dusk.
I wore this look out to pick up my MAC Baroque Boudoir haul and was surprised when the MA complimented me right away. She was shocked when I told her it was from Volturi Twilight Beauty, but of course I had to tell her about the fall out issues with it given that they are loose mineral eye shadows.
As well, I would say this look is slightly more akin to the Volturi coven, however I need some color on my cheeks. :p
