The Parisian makeup artist makes a case for upping your eye look for
Meet Violette—a girl who is more likely to be found applying makeup in the backseat of a moving vehicle or on the streets of New York than she is perched at her vanity. A girl who, like you, always has someplace to be and no time to get there. In this weekly video series, VIOLET GREY follows the Parisian makeup artist around town to chronicle her infamous on-the-go beauty routines. The rules? No crew, no set, no artificial lighting, no retouching—and no contouring.
In this week’s tutorial, Violette is focused on the perfect glistening eye look for Apéro (French for after-work drinks). Cheers to looking your best by candlelight.
The feature that takes center stage in today’s tutorial? The eyes. Apply the Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick all over the lid and in the top and bottom of the waterline for a smoky effect. Put a little in the outside corner and smudge it with your finger to create an almond eye shape. Then use the Urban Decay Eye Palette and tap the Lithium shade onto the center of the eyelid. “I’m going to add this Make Face Gloss onto my cheekbones to accentuate the lighting of the evening and on my eyelid for a lit effect,” adds Violette. “Now I’m good to have some Apéro.”
