A New Day

Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

October Le Métier de Beauté VIP Vault

on October 13, 2014

Happy October everyone!

This month’s Le Métier de Beauté VIP Vault shipment arrived super early – I think it was within the first couple days of the month. And this month… oh my gosh!


What could it be??


AH! Another kaleidoscope!!

“The October LMdB Vault features the Goldfinger kaleidoscope: IMG_2658.JPG

Inspired by the themes of the 20th Century architect and visionary, Erno Goldfinger.

Top tier to bottom tier:

Golden Function – a shimmering gold

Violet File – an opalescent grey-violet

Peacock – a deep satin cyan

Gun Metal – a smoldering gun-metal

Le Métier de Beauté’s Kaleidoscope Palettes are designed around our signature application, “Couches de Couleur,” (the layering of color).

Each shade is hand selected to evoke one of each element in a sequence of crescendo:





Each layer of application then increases the intensity of contrast, while always being flattering because of the initial blanket of warmth; worn alone or in combination, Le Métier de Beauté Kaleidoscope Palettes have it all.”

This kaleidoscope is just amazing. I loved swatching each of these colors. The colors are incredibly vibrant and they go on smooth and build like a dream!



Left to right: indoor lighting, outdoors, outdoors in direct sunlight

Using LMdB Director of Color, Mikey Castillo’s tutorial, I tried my hand at the couches de couleur technique…



Step 1 – pack the lid with the warm color, Golden Function

Step 2 – layer Violet File on top, applying at the lash line and soften towards the brow and then brush color along the lower lash line

Step 3 – use the same exact layering technique with the Peacock

Step 4 – repeat the step with Gun Metal


Add a couple coats of mascara…


Other products used in this look: Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Complexe in Shade 2 (September VIP), Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer in Alabaster Tint, MAC Prep+Prime Highlighter in Radiant Rose, LMdB Liquid Liner in Noir, Benefit They’re Real! Beyond Mascara, MUFE HD translucent setting powder – apologies for the excessive shine… I was testing out a new lighting situation but I don’t know what was going on with the crazy shine that day…

Overall, I loved this kaleidoscope. I think I have some work to do on perfecting the technique, but I didn’t totally botch it… hope I did Mikey proud. There were some doubts that these colors would work well together, but wow.. I was so wrong!
