  • Urban Decay Smoked Palette Look 1 - August 22nd, 2012
  • For my first makeup look using the Urban Decay Smoked Palette, I came up with a basic neutral smokey eye that can be worn during the day and into the night. I used three colors: Kinky (matte ivory), Mushroom (shimmery warm pale gray), and Barlust (metallic dark golden brown). Kinky and Barlust are new and exclusive to this palette. I really like how applying Mushroom on the lid turned out — it’s a subtle gray that adds something special to a typical brown smokey eye.

  • Sparkly Gold, Brown, and Black Makeup Look - August 2nd, 2012
  • I’ve always been a big fan of shimmery gold eye shadow (even my very first MAC eye shadow was a limited edition gold called “Bagatelle”), so I was really excited when I came across Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow in “89 Vision” when I was in Germany earlier this month. Vision is jam-packed with gold sparkle that can be used to create a very bold gold look as well as just to add something special to an everyday look, like I did in today’s makeup look. :)

  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Look 2 - May 15th, 2012
  • Here’s my second makeup look using the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette! This look features pale golden beige (“Suspect”) and dark bronze (“Snakebite”). Since I wanted to come up with something more dramatic, I applied the matte black eye shadow called “Blackout” just inside the outer V to create some depth. I also used my new Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Perversion” to line my lower waterline to finish the look.

  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Look 1 - April 26th, 2012
  • This is my first makeup look using eye shadows from the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I applied the shimmery pale beige-gray color called “Verve” on the center lid to create a glow against the darker brown colors. I also used the travel-size Lip Junkie Lipgloss that comes with this palette. This is an everyday look that works great for both day and night! If you’re also a proud owner of the Naked 2 Palette, I’d love to see makeup looks you come up with too! :)

  • Dramatic Brown Makeup Look - February 29th, 2012
  • After getting a lot of use out of my first MAC Pro Longwear Eye Shadow in “Lie Low” (see some of my makeup looks using it here), I bought another one called “Make Your Mark”. Both of these are brown colors — “Lie Low” is a golden brown, and “Make Your Mark” is a dark chocolate brown. I featured both of them in today’s makeup look. I added a little bit of shimmery white eye shadow along my tear ducts for contrast.
