Get the Look | Night Eternal – Makeup Tutorial Feat. ABH Subculture + Modern Renaissance + KVD Metal Matte

25th WeddingAnniversaryTreats

Good Evening. Tonight we gonna be riding in a one-horse open SLAY! … I’ll go home…

I have another Holiday makeup tutorial for you guys. This one features a smoky purple lid with a hint of peachy warmth paired with a neutral lip. I wore this look to a holiday get together / birthday party Saturday evening. I had no real plan of what I wanted to do other than use purple and the Metal Matte palette from Kat Von D and this is where I ended up. If you want to see how I go this look, just keep reading below.

So, I ended up doing a little bit of palette hopping between the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance, Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture and the Kat Von D Metal Matte Palette. Like I said, I had no real plan here, I just sat down and started playing.

The Eyes

I started out using the Bone shade from the Metal Matte Palette as my base.

I applied Bone all over the lid and brow bone to set my primer/concealer. My lids are so dry at the moment from the weather and being sick.

Jumping over to the Modern Renaissance, I took the shade Buon Fresco on a big fluffy brush as a transition shade.  Any mauve shade will do.

I blended Buon Fresco out quite a bit because I know I was gonna go smoky.

Moving on to some deeper shades I went for Velvet from the Kat Von D Metal Matte Palette.

This shade went more into the crease and blended into Boun Fresco. I used a smaller fluffy brush for this part to really tuck the eyeshadow into the crease.

At the point, I added Maybelline Color Tattoo in Vintage Plum to the lid. This was not a necessary step but I thought it might act as a nice base for the next shade.

4

Speaking of the next shade, I went in with Volt from the Metal Matte Palette on a flat brush and packed it onto the lid.

I feathered this shade into Velvet so there were no harsh lines.

I decided the look needed some warmth, the purples which look plummy in the pan were pulling to cool toned for my mood so I went around the transition area over Buon Fresco with Roxy from the ABH Subculture palette.

This brought in just enough peachy warmth to the look. 6

For liner, I went with shadow again with an angled liner brush. I went with the shade Rowdy from the Subculture palette.

I applied Rowdy along the upper lash line and into the outer corner to add depth and give a cat eye effect without doing a full on a wing. 7

For the inner corner I did a combination of Cube from Subculture and Glitz from the Metal Matte Palette.

I also cleaned up any fall out at this point.

I finished up my face makeup and moved on the lower lash line.  I ran the shade Roxy all the way across the lower lash line, really smoking the shade out.

Then with a little bit of Velvet from the Metal Matte and Rowdy from Subculture, I added in some definition and blended the lower lashline into the outer corner connecting it to the lid. It looks a bit messy here but after some blending, I got a smooth transition and flow. I also hit the inner corner with more of the Glitz/Cube combo.

The Finished Eye

I finished the eye off with L’Oreal Superstar XFiber Mascara.

The Finished Look.

For the lips, I went with a nude peach. This is a combination of Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Ludwig and Tarte Color Splash Lipstick – Rainforest of the Sea Collection in I believe Skinny Dip over top.

  1. Beautiful look! I wanted to ask your opinion of the subculture palette. There were so many different opinions when it came out. The colors look beautiful but how do you like the quality? I have the metal matte and modern renaissance palettes but wanted to know what you thought if subculture. 😊

    1. Thank you so much!
      From what I have gathered, there were some issues with the palette when it was released. I just bought mine last month and according to the internet the issues have been corrected. Like the shadows are pressed firmer now. It is very pigmented and powdery but not unlike the modern renaissance to me. I haven’t had any problems with blending or hitting pan and I have been using it often. I’m glad I bought it. I will say that because of the colors and pigmentation, it isn’t the most user friendly palette. It’s not a quickie one and done kind of palette.

      1. Yeah I remember the scandal about when the palette was first released but I had a girlfriend who got one of the good ones. I’ll probably pick one up. 😊Thank you for your input. I appreciate it.
