It is our firm belief that an outfit, especially an occasion-specific one, isn’t complete without a bombshell cat eye, major blush moment, or power lip to match. Here’s how to wear them all in fresh, new ways—straight from the talented minds of VIOLET GREY’s resident makeup artists. Feast your eyes on their stunning creations, then go all out—tonight.


THE ARTIST: ALLISON ELLIOT

THE LOOK: Bronze Bombshell

Pro Tip: “Forget that old makeup rule of choosing either eyes or lips—a bronze glitter eye paired with a pretty pink lip looks party-ready! For extra drama, pinch lashes together when mascara is still wet and apply a few individual falsies at the outer edge.”



THE ARTIST: LEAH FERRANTE

THE LOOK: Resort Glam

Pro Tip: “I love the idea of faking a fresh-from-the-island glow when dressing for a night out—no sun needed. The trick is to team up iridescent golds with warm coral shades to tie it all together.”



THE ARTIST: LORI YOUNG

THE LOOK: Modern Mod

Pro Tip: “A wash of pale shadow on the lids sweetens the ‘70s party vibe. I love a matte texture contrasted with a high-gloss lip.”



THE ARTIST: ASHLEY CORNETT

THE LOOK: High-Impact Lips

Pro Tip: “Nothing says party like a classic red lip. Just be sure to prep lips with an exfoliator and lip balm before applying your color. That’s how you get a smooth, long-lasting finish.”



THE ARTIST: LENA RAFF

THE LOOK: Sunset Eyes

Pro Tip: “Looking for a twist on the classic smoky eye? Blend a coppery-red shadow over liner and up to the crease, then pile on the mascara. It adds a big-night-out flair that’s sure to impress.”


THE ARTIST: BATA

THE LOOK: Supernatural Skin

Pro Tip: “Everyone take note: gorgeous skin is always in. An exfoliating toner works great to help brighten, but I like to spend a few extra minutes massaging my face with a good moisturizer to get an insanely hydrated glow.”
