I got a lookbook for you today! I’m so excited to finally be posting a lookbook using the Violet Voss HG PRO Eyeshadow Palette because it’s been a LONG time coming! A little over six months to be exact!
I had loads of fun creating looks with this palette and I feel like I was a bit more creative when I got the hang of it. I will have the full in-depth palette review for you tomorrow, but right now, let’s see what I’ve come up with.
#1: Brunch & Chill
I don’t remember what shades I used for this look, but looking at the photo I kind of took a guess. The only one I’m really not sure of, is the shade “Chill”, the shade on my eyelid. The rest I think are correct.
Shades Used: Thanks A Latte, Hashtag, Transition, Chill(?), Crystal, So Jelly
I had a hard time naming many of these, I don’t know why. Some names are very generic and are named after the shades used, I know, boring. But I called this Brunch & Chill because for some reason it reminds me of a look I’d wear for brunch. Is nice, simple, subtle, and natural.

#2: Pink on Fleek
This is my least favorite look, and the reason why is because the cut crease didn’t come out quite as I envisioned. Even so, I like how the colors on my eyelid transition from lightest to “darkest”. The shimmers blended really well into themselves.
Shades Used: Thanks A Latte, Bestie, R U Kitten Me, Brownie Points, Teddy Bear, On Fleek, Cool Beans, So Jelly, Ploof
I named it Pink on Fleek because of the shade “On Fleek” and “So Jelly” which is a pinky shimmer. In reality, this look is hardly pink, but I really like how the shade “So Jelly” looks in the inner corner.

#3: Cranberry Wine
This was the first look I did on a wet base and I love how pigmented all the shades look, especially “Wine n Dine” which I wasn’t sure about because it took a bit to build up when swatched. However, it blended quite nicely and I kind of fell in love with this one.
Shades Used: Wine n Dine, Hashtag, Cranberry Splash, Crystal, So Jelly
Have you noticed I’ve been using “So Jelly” on the inner corner for all my looks so far?? I just love that shade too. I named this Cranberry Wine for the shades “Cranberry Splash” and “Wine n Dine”.. I know.. So NOT original! XD

#4: Orange You Bronzed?
Since this palette is fairly neutral, I wanted to create a quickie look that didn’t require much time AND I also wanted something wearable for summer. Since I’m sooo obsessed with orange lipsticks, I couldn’t help but pair one up with this look. If I remember correctly, I’m wearing the ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in What’s The Stitch.
Shades Used: Thanks A Latte, Hashtag, Brownie Points, Awesome Sauce, Crystal
I came up with so many names for this look, it was hard to narrow it down. I feel like I just made a Dad Joke by picking Orange You Bronzed? but I’m hoping you guys get it LOL.

#5: Burgundy Splash
Another look on a wet base. Since I liked how Cranberry Wine came out, I wanted to play with the shade “Wine n Dine” again. I used a much lighter shade on the eyelid and I LOOOVE how it turned out. I was OBSESSED with this look and I think it might be my favorite out of them all. I couldn’t let this look go to waste, so I filmed my June Favorites and my Summer Try-On Haul.

Shades Used: Wine n Dine, Teddy Bear, R U Kitten Me, So Jelly, Ploof, Crystal
I named it Burgundy Splash because I felt like that name fit this look better than Cranberry Wine? After all, “Wine n Dine” leans more towards a deep burgundy shade.

#6: Holy Grail
Ahh!! Another fantastic, favorite look! I love the shade I used in my eyelid, “Toffee”. It’s a gorgeous, metallic gold! I’m usually fussy when it comes to gold shades because they look coppery or bronze, but this one actually looks more yellow! It’s just gorgeous and so pigmented!!
Shades Used: Brownie Points, Hashtag, Transition, Toffee, Teddy Bear, Crystal
This look was the EASIEST to name. Some might say it’s after the palette itself, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! In actuality, I named it Holy Grail because the HG was believed to be a cup or platter used by Jesus in the Last Supper (no, I’m not religious). And since a cup can also be called a chalice, which is GOLD, it only made sense to name it that because of the shade “Toffee”. I mean, seriously! It’s one of my favorite gold shades!
That’s it you guys, “short”, sweet and to the point. I hope you guys like these looks and I hope that I demonstrated good range of looks that can be created with this palette.
Which look is your favorite??
