What to call this? Metallic grunge? I started this look out wanting to use Liberty (the matte olive green) over a larger area so it would be more visible than how I’ve previously used it, and also to use it alone without the help of a transition shade. It requires more blending than the other mattes in the palette but it does eventually get there. Something I appreciate about this shade is how it stays pretty true to color as it is blended and sheered out along the edges.
Another goal was to use Hope some more as I hadn’t really gotten a whole lot of use out of it since purchasing the palette. There was a little bit of sparkle fallout but it wasn’t too bad. Unfortunately, it looks more gold than green here. That is somewhat true in real life too but these photos did come out much warmer than they should have.
Belle has a lot of shine and adheres well by itself without needing to use a dampened brush.
