Kat Von D Pastel Goth | Looks

My first look using the Kat Von D Pastel Goth palette is complete, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Although not day time appropriate, I still had a lot of fun creating this& I have plenty more to come.

If you’d like to know how I got this look, please, read on!


To start I primed my eyes with the holy grail of holy grails, Urban Decay eyeshadow primer and set it with a powder close to my skin colour.

Next is when the real fun began. Taking Pastel Goth, I picked up gloom on a real technique shadow brush and ran it through my crease. Once it was built up to a shade I was happy with, I cleaned up the lid with concealer.

Then I took star on the same brush (clean one) and put that on the outer v and dragged it up into the crease, blending it together with the previous shade.

Taking the Naked 3, I used the shade buzz right on the centre of the lid and used skull from the KVD palette right under my brow bone.

I used Soap and Glorys Cat liner to make a small wing and applied a bit of mascara.

For my brows, I took the shades meow and dope from the KVD palette and basically just built them on top of each other until I was happy with the result.


For the rest of my face, I applied a small amount of foundation & then contoured softly with dope before adding some bronzer to tone down the purple.

I used quite a hefty amount of Sleek highlighter because I really like to glow and then I finished with a Matte Candy liquid lipstick in Tease.

And that is it! The finished look. I really hope you enjoyed and if you did, please, hit that follow button so you never miss a post! Also, check out my instagram giveaway! My username is misschloetoni x

Kat Von D Pastel Goth | First Impressions

Finally, I managed to get my hands on the gorgeous, limited edition Pastel Goth palette by Kat Von D. The excitement that coursed through my veins as I laid eyes on it in the store were something else. Let me set the scene; so there I was,  walking through Debenhams all ready to stock up Urban Decays eyeshadow primer when I saw it. The tears were real. Now some of you may think I’m overreacting but, I’ve been waiting for this palette for a very long time.

So naturally, I bought it. I was buzzing as I held it in my hands, walked to the cashier and handed over the 40 euro. All the way home I had to stop myself from ripping open the packaging and swatching all the beautiful shadows inside, But I contained myself, and here we are. So ladies and gents here is my First Impression of Kat Von D Pastel Goth.

Before we begin, I will not be inserting swatch pictures in this post. Instead, I will be doing so on my Snapchat & Instagram stories, both of which are @misschloetoni so be sure to give those a follow!

First off, the packaging of this palette may be one of the most gorgeous things I’ve ever seen in my whole life. The box is the exact same design as the actual palette and the design itself is pretty simple. Pastel Goth is written in funky lettering, and the words are a mix match of some of the colours in the palette.

When you open up the palette you are met with a small mirror, with the classic Kat Von D logo and of course the shadows. The pan size of each is relatively big, especially considering the colours aren’t something you would wear every day so you wouldn’t be reaching for it 24/7. My boyfriend and I are in agreement, however, that I should make it a part of my everyday makeup routine.

The shadows are everything you would want in a shadow, soft, buttery, not too powdery and of course; pigmented! I can not wait to dive in and start using it!

Of course, I will do a full review once I use the palette for a while and expect lot’s of makeup tutorials in the coming weeks. Unfortunetly, it is sold out on Kat Von D website but it is available at Debenhams and can be purchased here

Naked 3 vs Nude Eyes | Dupes

I know I have been completely awol for like the past month, which I completely apologise for. It has been hectic, my new site is on hold and it’s just been a mess. But, I’m back & I also still have 25% off Mikasa Beauty- not only there brushes but everything on their site!

If you are interested visit http://www.mikasabeauty.com and use the code Chloeantonia25 at the checkout!

So I think I may have found a dupe for the Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay. I know, everyone has a dupe for this, but I don’t think I’ve seen this one floating around anywhere.

The palette in question is actually from Primark and is from their PS collection. It is called nude eyes and I cannot remember where I got this, at all. I definitely didn’t buy it myself, but I found it & swatched it and thought this looks hella similar.

Best part about this? It’s only €5, guys in Ireland the Naked palettes go for about €45, you can save yourself so much money.

Nude Eyes has ten eye shadows, whereas Naked 3 has 12. Ive narrowed it down and the two shadows that seem to be missing are Limit and Burnout. Every other shadow is there from Dust to Blackheart & they are pretty bang on if you ask me. I will be doing swatches and comparisons over on Snapchat which is misschloetoni & also on Instagram which is the same handle!

So what do you think? Will you be rushing out to buy Nude Eyes? Leave me know in the comments below. If you enjoyed please follow my (m blog so you never miss a post. Xx

 

Who Would Like To Collab?

To officially kick off my new blog I’ve decided that I want to collab with a fellow newbie blogger, mainly because people are forever telling me how fun it is and that you can meet amazing people through it, etc. I know how scary it can be to start a blog, because, I have had other blogs before this, and having a support network of friends who are in the same boat is so important. If you want your blog to be a success in general, making friends with others online is highly recommended. And it would make the whole newbie process seem a little less daunting.

So, if there are any new bloggers or just bloggers out there who want to collab on anything beauty related, please feel free to email me. I would love to hear from you and I would absolutely love to collab. My email address is chloeantonia1@gmail.com

Have a fabulous day! X

Essence My Must Haves | First Impressions

Guys I found the best find in Primark or Penny’s if you live in Ireland like me. I’m not sure how long these shadows have been on the market but it is my first time coming across them.

The shadows are called my must haves and they are from the brand Essence. What’s cool about them is there are two different palettes that you can fill with these shadows.

I chose the 4 palette to start but there was also an 8pan. The four pan and all the shadows are only €1.90! How amazing is that?

So I’ve decided to share the four colours I chose, and I chose these for a special reason so who knows, maybe you’ll get to see a look revolving around them!

The first shade is tiffunny which is a gorgeous silver eyeshadow, it’s just full of glitter! When the time comes that I get to sweep this across my eye, it shall be a great day!

Next up is raspberry frosting and again it’s full of glitter. The only thing that makes it better? It’s pink glitter!

Purple clouds is up next and as the name suggests, it’s purple. Although it’s still a shimmer shadow it is definitely the most matte like out of the the four I picked up. Still just as excited to use it though!

Lastly is have a n’ice day. It is This beautiful icy blue shade. And it was actually my boyfriend who picked it out, must say he has good taste because judging by appearance only, I think this may be my favourite.

Of course I still need to test the products and I promise a review will come once I do. If you enjoyed this post be sure to follow my blog so you never miss a post!
