A colour pairing made in heaven | Smokey taupe and violet eyes with Vasanti Mount Rushmore

Mount Rushmore was, believe it or not, the product that put Vasanti on the map for me. I remember reading about it on Faces by Farah last year, and just thinking wow – the shades looked incredibly intense and finely-milled (and let’s face it: matte violets get me every time). It took a long time for me to finally try out the line (what can I say; I’m easily distracted!) but I promise, the duo’s no less lovely in person as it is in Vasanti’s product shots.

I’ll have swatches and a review ready in a day or two, but I wanted to share a quick look with this duo, first. This isn’t the only one I’ve done (I find myself reaching for the taupe side again and again; it’s a fantastic all-over lid shade), but this is how I think I’d wear Mount Rushmore most of the time – sheerly, with a bit of violet liner for emphasis.

(Then again, that’s how I wear pretty much everything. Shh.)
